Purslane - The perfect definition of casual fine dining. Named Edinburgh restaurant of the year last May, Purslane brings together Scottish food at its highest level making you forget the traditional haggis neeps and tatties as National dish. Focusing on seasonality and local produces, the chef Paul Gunning has sourced 80% of his suppliers in Stockbridge. Trying to bringing the community together, the aim of the chef is to offer great food at more than affordable prices.
In brief, at Purslane you will experience exquisite dishes and a lovely atmosphere in a tiny restaurant.

The Scran & Scallie - One of the best addresses in Stockbridge, and for multiple reasons. First, and this is crucial, the food is amazing. Concocted by two of Scotland’s top chefs, Michelin star chef Tom Kitchin and Dominic Jack, the food is seasonal, with local ingredients. Don’t miss out their Goat’s cheese tart and walnut condiment as well as their steak pie, a delish. Second, we really enjoy the rustic charm of this old pub, where you will feel like in a cocoon. It’s cozy and warm, you wish you could there forever. And last but not least, the staff is really lovely.
We highly recommend this restaurant, from breakfast to dinner, even though you’re not staying in the Stockbridge area.
Where? 1 Comely Bank Road Edinburgh EH4 1DT
Nok’s Kitchen - Newly opened, this Thai restaurant has already been acknowledged as one of the best Thai in Stockbridge. Mixing together mouth watering flavours of spices and products, their dishes are really tasty. We can’t resist to their great curries and appetisers such as the grill king scallops or duck salad. A real pleasure.
Where? 8 Gloucester St Edinburgh EH3 6EG
I.J. Mellis Cheesemonger - Why not shaking up your habits and eat only cheese for dinner? If so, go directly to Mellis Cheesemonger as they are providing the best cheeses in town. French, Spanish, Scottish, there’s for sure one made for you. They even create personalised cheese wedding cakes. What a treat.
