Purslane Restaurant

33A St Stephen Street, Edinburgh, EH3 5AH

This is a truly special fine dining restaurant in Stockbridge, with a welcoming atmosphere and incredible food.

Tucked away in a basement on St Stephen Street in Stockbridge, Purslane is a lovely little restaurant. With a real focus on using local suppliers and sourcing seasonal ingredients, the menu is a delight. The food and presentation are exceptional and provide guests with a fine dining experience but in a relaxed environment. We enjoyed the 7 course tasting menu here, with matching wines, and would most definitely recommend it!

Nok's Kitchen

8 Gloucester Street, Edinburgh, EH3 6EG

This cosy Thai restaurant in Stockbridge is so friendly and welcoming. It has a warm and buzzing atmosphere. But most importantly, the food is amazing!

Nok's Kitchen offers a wide menu of delicious Thai food, which is flavourful and satisfying. It's incredibly popular, so we'd advise you to book your table in advance.

Smith & Gertrude

26 Hamilton Place, Edinburgh, EH3 5AU

We've just discovered Smith & Gertrude on Hamilton Place in Stockbridge, and already we can't wait to go back. A wine and cheese bar with an incredible choice of wines (but also many other drinks of course), and a lovely cheese and charcuterie menu to go along side.

The inside is fairly minimal and yet incredibly warm and inviting, with beautiful wooden flooring and lovely lighting over the bar area. It's certainly somewhere where you might come in for one but decide that you don't want to leave!


108 Raeburn Place, Edinburgh, EH4 1HH

ROLLO is a boutique wine bar in Stockbridge, which also offers a wonderful tapas style menu of bites, bowls and small plates. The tasty dishes change regularly and are complemented by an extensive wine list.

The bar has a laid-back atmosphere, so you can just relax. We love a lazy lunch or dinner at ROLLO!
