Pub

“If you don’t feel like going very far and having a quiet few drinks, or a bite to eat, head round the corner to this shabby chic bar. It has a laid back atmosphere and serves Swedish inspired food! Then you can wander home and roll into bed...”

Café
$$
“The best Scottish full breakfast! Everything is a bit quirky here, with the menus in old magazines and none of the china matching. Its slightly off the shores main eating street but this doesn't make it quiet, so maybe consider booking.”

Cinema
“Screen 1 is wonderful. Loads of leg room and comfortable. Other screens much less comfortable. It's the local "independent" cinema.”

Italian Restaurant
$$
“Fantastic pizza and you can either go and eat in their lovely restaurant, order it for delivery at home or, if you are at The Joker & The Thief on Leith Walk, order it and have it with your pint of Tennent's (they serve it up on a platter, and provide napkins etc....amazing!). The Vesuvio is my firm favourite!”
