In the heart of the Quartermile, No.8 Lister Square in Edinburgh is a laidback gastrobar serving classic dishes, light bites and comfort food. Enjoy fresh, seasonal dishes against a backdrop of regular live music, or out on the al fresco terrace.

The No.8 Lister Square menu is packed with fresh, locally sourced ingredients. Start with a sharing platter of continental meats and cheeses, bite-sized chilli chicken wings and bbq pork ribs, or a baked flatbread. Served on hot lava stones, steak is the main event, joined by a choice of sauce and sides, whilst other highlights include Cajun blackened Scottish salmon and a Scotch beef burger.

From the No.8 bar comes a wide range of craft beers, wines and cocktails, all served up in a contemporary setting, complete with exposed brick walls and floor-to-ceiling windows.

Offering entertainment every night of the week, No.8 Lister Square sits beside The University of Edinburgh, a 15-minute walk from Edinburgh Waverley Train Station.

    Really really nice food. It's a really fun unique idea but staff were quite slow.

  • ((((* 20 April 2017 by Pamela Fitzgerald from Edinburgh

    A lovely setting with big glass windows on the first floor and great view. Excellent service given. Good food and nicely presented. Very good and professional singer downstairs which gave atmosphere but not over intrusive.

    Great bar, with a lovely atmosphere. Perfect to watch the rugby on a Saturday afternoon.
