A small cosy restaurant with a lovely ambience. The staff were very friendly and couldn't do enough for us. The choice of food wasn't huge, but that's often a good thing and it certainly was here as what they did, they did extremely well. An excellent evening and I'd certainly go back.

This was my second visit to the restaurant and it was just as good as I remembered! I went with a friend from Italy and we enjoyed everything.....scallops, steak and venison! The tastes were wonderful!
We were only sorry we had no room for dessert...

I've dined here on numerous occasions with no issues. However on this occasion I felt the service was very poor.
No one asked us if everything was OK after our courses had been served. We had to ask for our water to be topped up. We had to pour our own wine which meant getting up out of our seat as the wine cooler wasn't easily reached.
Small things yes, but having just returned from Turkey where the service was exemplary, there was just no comparison. It was my partners birthday and this was highlighted at time of the booking in other restaurants this has been recognised.
However I cannot fault the food.

Very cosy, inviting atmosphere. Service was very good, staff were very pleasant and attentive. Food was excellent, both myself and husband had three courses each, every one of them was just perfect. If in the area it's definitely worth a visit, but best to book in advance just to be sure if getting a table.

Not as good as I remembered. Had been there a number of times back in 2013. Lighting was way too bright. I remember the flavours being incredible but this time I honestly felt they were a bit flat. We could only secure a late (9.30pm) booking & it all felt a bit rushed - I was still chewing when my main course plate was whipped away. The waiter apologised as I think she realised they were rushing us. They shouldn’t take later bookings if they want to finish up early!

We had a lovely meal. Good choice os items on the menu. I had goats cheese soufflé and sea bass and I thought they were delicious with just the right amount of food on the plate. 2 of our party had the lamb and it was rated just right. Can I also mention the bread it was to die for. The only little negative was that we felt that the table could have been slightly bigger.

Lovely room, below the street. Very quiet. Service was excellent. Some nice touches, including an amuse bouche. I think the food was very good (my only comment is that the portions of fish could have been larger), creative and well-presented. We dined on a Sunday night so we could bring our own wine (small corkage fee was worth it). In short, we would return.

Not sure what to expect as we booked prior to leaving London. Exceeded our expectations as this restaurant was exactly what we wanted for a special occasion. The menu whlist limited was adequate. Service exceptional without being too intrusive and the food was delicious. We will visit again when in Edinburgh.

When my 18 year old daughter and I showed up for our reservation, the server asked if she was 18. My daughter had to produce her ID before being seated. This is not a bar or pub, but a lovely little restaurant with about ten tables. It’s described as romantic and intimate. The server explained that they have a very specific license. It was weird in a town that has not blinked and eye at her being in pubs or bars or having a glass of wine with dinner. I did not ask what would have happened if she did not have her ID or had not been 18. However the next day, we walked by one of Stockbridge other venues and there was a sign stating no one under 18 allowed- not even infants. So check with the restaurant before bringing your under 18 year old.

The food was pretty good although the main courses were only warm. My friend's steak was cold but she didn't want to make a fuss. Provision for coeliacs wasn't great very few dishes were gluten free and the preferred option for making dishes gluten free was to remove an item from the dish. Staff were very nice though.

This was my second visit to The Stockbridge Restaurant having been there in January of this year. This time I was with family and had already recommended it highly so was pleased that nothing had changed since my previous visit. Staff are welcoming and knowledgeable, the host Jane always makes you feel very special and that nothing is too much trouble. We had the sea bass and the steak and both were excellent. I would highly recommend this little jewel in Stockbridge.
