Fish & Chip Shop
$$
“This place is a little far out of main Edinburgh. But North Berwick is well worth the visit. I would recommend going when its sunny though. The lobster shack is just that, a shack on the beach that sells all kinds of seafood treata. My favs are the grilled lobster and the double cooked chips and the crab and prawn cocktail. There's also the seabird centre and boat trips around the harbour so you can really make a day of it!”
