    Absolutely excellent! The service was brilliant and the food delicious. We were in Edinburgh for a short break and I'm so glad I found the Stockbridge. The menu is the right length and the food well presented and tasty. I loved the lovely gifts what a surprise and totally worth 5 stars! I can't recommend enough and when i'm back in Edinburgh, I will visit again!

    A true hidden gem - this restaurant is below street level and seemingly out of the way, but what an excellent place! The food was impeccable - dishes that were clearly crafted with great skill and attention to detail. Excellent take on Scottish food with delicious flavors. Truly excellent value for the price and not to be missed if in Edinburgh!

    The menu was very limited but, despite that, we found something we thought we would like. The starter did not disappoint but our main course choice, the only fish dish, was ‘sold out’. We understand the need to reduce costs by limiting variety. However, in our opinion it is not OK to then have one of only 4 main course choices not available. We are not great meat eaters but decided to try the duck. Unfortunately it was on the cold side and a bit chewy. We had very fond memories of a previous visit, well before the pandemic, but despite the waitress being very good, this “special birthday” visit did not live up to the memories and reduced the value for money to an unacceptable level.

    The Stockbridge RestaurantResponded on 16 May 2022

    Stuart, many thanks for your review. we are so sorry and disappointed you didn't enjoy your evening. its very occasional that we do sell out of a dish and unfortunately the halibut dish was a very popular dish that evening . we do order our fish in fresh and so it was unfortunate that it was all ordered and sold out. we can only apologise and iam sorry you felt the duck was on the cold side as we could have rectified this on the evening , again our apologies.

    We mostly enjoyed our visit to the Stockbridge restaurant.We have a couple of complaints however.I was cold and felt a draught at the table we were seated.We are elderly and found the steep steps down to restaurant a bit daunting.The food was excellent so we would probably go back.

    The Stockbridge RestaurantResponded on 16 May 2022

    Hi AnneM we are really sorry you felt cold and draughty. we do have heaters and we would have been happy to close the curtains for you to help make you more comfortable. we are really sorry you felt this way . our steps are steep but unfortunately there isnt much we can do to remedy them. we are pleased to hear you enjoyed the food and we thank you for your review and business.

    The food was outstanding. Most of the combinations of flavours were excellent and the presentation was also great. The amuse bouche, the bread and the pre-desert tidbit all allowed added taste enjoyment in addition to what we ordered. Although the wine wasn't exactly the year I'd hoped for it was very good and actually a good price too to pay for such a wine in a restaurant. It was our second visit (the previous one being pre-Covid) and we look forward to returning again.

    The Stockbridge RestaurantResponded on 14 May 2022

    Many thanks for your great review, we are delighted you enjoyed. we are sorry about the vintage of the wine , that must have slipped through our radar when we took delivery , but we are pleased you enjoyed. thanks again !

    I’ve been a couple of times now, so I feel I’ve given it the opportunity to prove itself. However, although the food is mostly ‘good’, the chef seems to consistently make simple mistakes. Something seems to be always either under/over seasoned or overcooked etc. Shame, as the food is so close to being very good.
