Diner Reviews
  • "every time i get asked to review this restaurant I say the same thing OUTSTANDING Says it all really."
    dined on 12/04/2014
  • "Couldn't have been more impressed with the Stockbridge. I found it on here when visiting Edinburgh for the weekend for my husband's 49th birthday. It's the best meal either of us has had in years and the plat du jour was excellent value. Absolutely 5 star - we've dined in Michelin star restaurants which weren't a patch on the Stockbridge! Would highly recommend a visit. It was certainly worth the taxi fare from the city centre and we needed the stroll back to walk off our meal! Bravo to the chef and all front of house staff - very impressive!"

  • "A very enjoyable experience. Menu offered a wide variety of choice. Quality of food wonderful. Would highly recommend."
    dined on 04/04/2014
  • "My boyfriend and I went to Stockbridge Restaurant for our anniversary and the experience was really nice. The food and the service were really good and also the atmosphere. We could stay until finish our dinner, although we were the last people in the restaurant. I will recommend this restaurant to my friends and we will probably come back."
    dined on 05/04/2014
  • "Amazing food at amazing prices for such quality. Ticked every box"
    dined on 04/04/2014
  • "Living in London I do not often get the opportunity to see my mother on Mothers day. So this year I wanted something special. This we got in the Stockbridge. Fantastic food, wonderful service in a beautiful room. I cannot recommend highly enough."
    dined on 30/03/2014
  • "Very nice food & lovely pre course extrars. Nice helpful staff. Very quiet atmosphere, music could be a little louder!"
    dined on 26/03/2014
  • "We dine here frequently and the quality of food is always high. We have never had a bad experience."
    dined on 21/03/2014
  • "I haven't been for a few months but the quality of food versus the cost is amazing. The value is even better in the early part of the week with a 2 or 3 course offer on certain dishes but even without that the whole meal experience from home made bread, complimentary amuse-bouche, through the delicious courses and even home made petits fours with coffee make this experience a cut above the competition. The staff are knowledgeable, efficient and friendly. I certainly won't leave it so long until my next visit."
    dined on 18/03/2014
  • "I have been trying out a number of restaurants to find a venue for a 60th Birthday party. All have been good, but something was just lacking in all of them - food quality, value for money, staffing, venue etc. However, everything was just right at the Stockbridge and I will be booking it for the Birthday in May. Jane, the co-owner couldn't have been more approachable when discussing the prospective party. Oh, and the food we had was excellent and staff attentive. Will definitely add the Stockbridge as a regular haunt for eating out in Edinburgh."
    dined on 14/03/2014
  • "My husband and I dined in the stockbridge restaurant this weekend and can honestly say the meal was faultless. Service was excellent and the general mood right down to the gentle music in the background was perfect. I recommend the cheese board! Worth the supplement!!"
    dined on 14/03/2014
  • "Excellent food and service, with table d'hote menu representing terrific value for money. In addition, wine reasonably priced. Only let down was lack of atmosphere as only one other table taken. However, it was a mid-week evening. Amuse-bouche and petits fours gave special finishing touch. Well done! Will definitely return."
    dined on 18/02/2014
  • "The set menu Sunday dinner is excellent value for money and superb, accurately cooked tasty food. The cheese board is by far the best I've ever had (and I've had a few)"
    dined on 09/03/2014
  • "Stockbridge restaurant has a warm, cozy atmosphere & very good food, service is second to none."
    dined on 08/03/2014
  • "I cannot recommend the Stockbridge Restaurant highly enough. The food was amazing, the service outstanding with everybody so helpful and friendly, and compared to other top tier restaurants that we have eaten at this definitely comes out on top on price. We will definitely come back next time we visit Edinburgh."
    dined on 01/03/2014
  • "Needed to get a cab from centre of Edinburgh to this restaurant. Well worth the visit. Food lovely and cheeseboard the best we have ever had anywhere. We counted 10 different local cheeses ! Staff and owner so welcoming, really made our evening special."

    dined on 14/02/2014
  • "The food was really good but better than that wad the service and the friendly staff. I enjoyed my experience there."
    dined on 14/02/2014
  • "11 of us dined on a wet Saturday night. The food was delicious, the staff very welcoming, and the ambiance fantastic. Everything people ordered was excellent, and there was no-one in the group who found it hard to find choices they loved. The staff coped brilliantly with two large parties on the same evening."
    dined on 08/02/2014
  • "At really fair prices. Food was incredibly tasty and arrived hot! Staff very friendly. Would definitely return."
    dined on 06/02/2014
  • "There were four of us for dinner last Friday evening and we wanted to try it because we have never been there before and we had heard good things. The food was good and the ambience was nice. However, they were very busy and the service was slow and inatentive. When first seated we sat there for quite a while with no one taking our drink menu. We had to ask to be served. Our finished plates were left on the table well after everyone had finished, we were not offered any more wine when we were empty etc, etc. We would have spent more money ordering drinks etc but the staff did not seem to care. So all in all, we would not go back as there are plenty of better restuarants with better service and just as good food."
    dined on 31/01/2014
  • "We really enjoyed our meal out to celebrate our first anniversary. A bit upmarket from our usual haunts and it didn't disappoint. Gin and tonics with different styles of gin were a nice aperitif. The food was very good - although perhaps a little heavy on the red cabbage with the venison. They were busy and service was a little slow at times, but it was a pleasant experience for all that. A good balance between taste and quantity. We particularly appreciated the small lemon sorbet before dessert as a way of cleansing the palette. We certainly didn't feel hungry when we left but nor did we feel we'd overindulged."
    dined on 01/02/2014
  • "Great atmosphere, food and service. It was a bonus that on Sunday evenings it's BYOB with a corking fee, making it extremely affordable to dine on a regular occasion. Thank you!"
    dined on 26/01/2014
  • "Booked this last minute,but it was one of the best meals I have had in a while.All three courses were sublime, and I would urge anyone coming to Edinburgh to give this fantastic restaurant a try."
    dined on 25/01/2014
  • "Wedding Anniversary for us and an ideal place for couples dining. Probably not your first choice for a group of more than 4. Food perfect, unpretentious but sufficiently adventurous to keep it interesting. Simple but perfectly adequate choice of wines. I in fact had one of their Scottish ales. Fine white tablecloths and linen napkins. Go, you will not regret it."
    dined on 24/01/2014
  • "Our second time dining at the restaurant & we couldn't fault any aspect. A warm welcome set the tone on our arrival and we felt very well looked after all night. The food is excellent and the value is incomparable for cooking of this quality. We've paid similar amounts for distinctly average food elsewhere. Every course was a delight. The wine choices we excellent too, with friendly advice offered if required. The staff couldn't be nicer."
    dined on 30/12/2013
  • "Beautifully cooked food, unpretentious and full of flavour. The staff had incredible menu knowledge and were so helpful with my annoying intolerances. Jason makes every dish from scratch and adapted the menu for me with ease. The passion fruit sorbet was a winner, as was the duck. Highly recommend."
    dined on 30/12/2013
  • "Our third time at The Stockbridge Restaurant and we had yet another superb experience. Lovely setting, beautiful food and attentive, friendly staff. An excellent fine dining experience with a lack of pretension - increasingly difficult to find in Edinburgh."
    dined on 29/12/2013
  • "We enjoyed the Sunday evening menu. The food was very good: well presented, interesting choices, tasty but not over-seasoned. The restaurant was full. It is small and the tables are close together with no chance of any screening or baffles, so the dining experience is rather spoiled by being able to hear other people's conversations."
    dined on 22/12/2013
  • "Thoroughly enjoyable dining experience. Excellent food. Had pork (starter) and partridge (main) and no fault found. Very delicious and well-presented. Friendly, warm and attentive service. Lovely cosy atmosphere."
    dined on 23/12/2013
  • "Cosy family run basement restaurant in Stockbridge. Food and service were both excellent. Cost was very reasonable. As the restaurant was full on a Sunday night we strongly recommend booking a table in advance."
    dined on 22/12/2013
  • "What an absolutely fabulous discovery. I ate here with my partner for a romantic winter break and was thoroughly blown away with the quality, flavours, service - basically I cannot fault them on a single thing. We will definitely be back."
    dined on 22/12/2013
  • "This was our second visit - and the experience was every bit as good as the previous. Fantastic, imaginative, well balanced menu, beautifully cooked and presented. Attention to detail and ambience was matched by the service. Everyone at our table of 6 agreed it was one of the best restaurants we had been to in some time (and that includes some michelin *s)!"
    dined on 19/12/2013
  • "our whole experience of this restaurant from beginning to end was great. the staff were outstanding so helpful and friendly. The place its self is great and beautifuly decorated. Thanks for a great meal. my fiance said...."best food he has had in Edinburgh""
    dined on 18/12/2013
  • "We decided based upon reviews to go to stockbridge for a romantic 5th anniversary dinner and boy were we not disappointed. We decided to go for the set menu as the options were good and the value for money was outstanding. I had pigeon for starters something i'd never tried before and it was amazing and my partner had the haddock risotto. Both were extremely delicious but the pigeon won our vote. For mains we both went for chicken which was cooked perfectly. For deserts i had the cheese board which was probably to much for one person but it was amazing. My partner went with the chocolate trio which she said was to die for. The staff were attentive and pleasant with a perfect balance."
    dined on 27/11/2013
  • "Absolutely amazing and very good value! Had a brilliant meal, absolutely brilliant atmosphere and exceptional service! Great food, exceptionally executed. Great taste, cannot recommend highly enough! We will go back over and over again :)"
    dined on 26/11/2013
  • "Booked in advance at this quite small and intimate restaurant. Menu not extensive but quite varied and great quality. Wine list sensibly priced, by restaurant standards! I enjoyed the pork medley starter and the sea bass main course, while my partner thought her scallop starter and hake main course were exceptional. Only I was sufficient of a glutton to order a dessert of rice pudding and praline ice cream, which again was very good. Service throughout was friendly and attentive without being overbearing. The Stockbridge isn't cheap, but it is good value and , as the saying goes, you get what you pay for."
    dined on 14/11/2013
  • "Booked following some good online reviews for our visit to edinburgh and was not dissapointed. We went for the set menu which is excellent value at £24 but more importantly very good food. Service was warm and friendly. The venue is intimate and cozy although a little off the beaten track but well worth the effort."
    dined on 22/11/2013
  • "We had the set menu which was outstanding value. The food was great, the service excellent and the experience was lovely. The starters were an absolute hit, and the chocolate desert really hit the spot. Even the coffee was nice. Whilst the mains were very nice, we couldn't quite give them 5 stars. We're being pretty pedantic though. Highly recommend."
