Located on the Lanark Road in Currie, The Riccarton Inn is a pleasant traditional pub and restaurant serving a pleasing range of real ales, whiskies and gins. The restaurant lists a wide range of British dishes. I recommend the cullen skink as a starter - this is a smoked haddock and potato soup in a creamy base. I chose the steak and mushroom pie, veggies [and chips!] followed by two scoops of dairy ice cream, and coffee. This was washed down with a bottle of Italian white wine. The total cost was much less than I would have paid in the city, and I left totally satisfied.

Food lovely, service very good considering how busy the place was. Very noisy as had table in the bar, difficulty hearing conversation at times. It’s alway quieter in the restaurant area. Would specify restaurant area next time.

First of all .. it's the Riccarton Inn and NOT the Ricarton Inn. Leaving that small point aside..

They were helpful and flexible in that they provided coffee first thing in the morning at very reasonable cost whilst they obviously would normally be preparing for lunch service.

Lunch itself was freshly cooked and tasty. Only tiny quibble would be that the fish and chips were put on top of the mushy peas and slice of lemon and initially obscured them .. we'd happily return!

The service started off well but when the main courses came it all went downhill. My chicken pie was nice but my partners burger was tiny and came on a brown seeded bun which he couldn’t eat. There were hardly any chips to go with it. Our plates were taken away and we weren’t offered desserts or coffees. We thought he would just automatically return with the dessert menus but twenty minutes passed and it was like we had been forgotten about. I spotted the waiter just leaning at the bar chatting with what looked like was a friend. I got up and had to ask at the bar for someone to bring us the menus. When we finally got round to ordering my partner said his ice cream had to be completely plain (no, flakes, sprinkles etc) as he has a nut allergy. The ice cream arrived with a wafer in and when the waitress put it down she said ‘I don’t know if the wafer has nuts in it or not.’ Well.... something you kind of need to know! How dangerous! By this point we had lost the will to live so he just left it. Won’t ever go back and wouldn’t recommend anyone went, especially if you have a nut allergy!!

Went for a fairly early stop-off tea. Had 2 different mains, with drinks, for about £25 - pretty standard price & would rather pay that for something decent. Weren't wanting to stay long & food was served promptly, without affecting the quality. Have been a few times before & will be back

Really enjoyed the night, only issue was that the booking I made through the app had not been received by the restaurant. They managed to accommodate us but this was a little disappointing as I had booked it as it was a special occasion.
