We went on a Sunday for birthday treat and were not disappointed. You can't book so we got there for 12:30 to make sure of a table. Service was very good and the food was excellent. The Boerwurst was first class and the others enjoyed the burgers. Two of our party had deserts and they were too big to finish... More

This establishment is located in the heart of the countryside, and is ideal for couples, small groups and walkers. The Chop and Ale House is part of a converted old building owned by Champany, which also features a wine shop with Scottish gifts, and overnight accommodation. We visited for lunch, and as there is a no-booking policy, and the restaurant... More

Really good T-Bone, tender and tasty. One of the best places i eat near edinburgh. Lunch with wine and drinks as dessert for 45 pounds each. I will repeat for sure

The service is slow but nice enough. We ordered the steak and grilled chicken. The chicken was dry and over cooked. It lacked all flavour and was just a greaseball. The steak had absolutely no flavour and was too fatty. The chips had been left sitting too long and it was just substandard quality. The non alcoholic drinks were way... More

Dinner on Saturday 19/11/16 at 16:15. Pretty busy but not full so no problem with getting a small intimate table. Not much space in between tables and can't see this place for large groups. Wait staff was friendly enough but they seemed a bit anxious/rush. Love the fact you can't book a table at this restaurant something very unpretentious about... More

Been here a few times and always busy, but managed to land just right when a table was available, but there was one hour wait by the time we left. The food is good and the service excellent, staff are not pushy and nothing is any bother. Fishcakes starters were good and the fish main course also excellent, I think... More

My husband and I had dinner here on Saturday, it was absolutely fantastic, I had the blue cheese and bacon burger which was delightful and cooked to perfection. The service was great the host found us a table sharpish and brought us drinks beside a lovely fire. We will be going back here very unique little restaurant.

We were pleasantly surprised by the intimate and charming setting of this restaurant, not to mention the equally charming and friendly staff. The little fireplace in the middle of their dining area is a wonderful respite from the cold outside. The food was excellent, especially the steaks, hamburgers and desserts. This is a great little haven for meat lovers and... More

Treated my wife for her recent birthday.. Left completely full and satisfied. I had the black pudding bonbons... Gorgeous... Followed by a fantastic T-Bone steak cooked perfectly. Their in-house butcher certainly knows a good cut of beef... It was just perfect. Accompanied by a side salad, coleslaw and some home made chips... It was superb. Prices are a bit on... More
