Housed in a restored Georgian building opposite Edinburgh University’s main halls of residence, The Salisbury Arms is a pub & restaurant with a beer garden for sun-soaked dining in the warmer months. With vaulted ceilings, cream-coloured walls & deep sofas & armchairs by the fireplace, it is a homely hideaway serving hearty British cuisine.

Sourcing ingredients from trusted local suppliers, The Salisbury Arms menu features wholesome recipes based around the garden, land and sea. Sample hand-pressed burgers, beef & ale pie with cardamom carrots, or sea bass with potato gnocchi, while old-school puddings include warming crumbles, custard-lathered sponges and decadent brownies. Not forgetting younger diners, a kids’ menu includes miniature versions of British classics.

A partnership with the celebrated Rothschild wine merchants means The Salisbury Arms cellar is stocked full with an eclectic list of world wines, while indulgent wine flights allow guests to sample a variety of bins. Seasonal beers and barrel-kept ales also feature, as well as thirst-quenching cocktails and rich coffees.

The Salisbury Arms in Edinburgh is a 5-minute drive from Edinburgh Rail Station.

    Very nice big house with own parking. And very nice interior decor. And friendly staff. BUT the food was mediocre. We ordered fish and chips and a winter vegetable tart. The fish was good, but the chips were pale and tasteless. The winter tart was tasty but lukewarm and missing some garnishing. The apple and blackberry crumble was very nicely presented in a little pan but the blackberries were clearly jam!

    The restaurant is warm,friendly and welcoming.The staff are lovely and provide a great service.I have been there 4 times and every dish i have ordered is delicious especially the fillet steak...cooked perfectly!The drinks menu has a really good choice too.
    They have a nice patio area where you can sit and eat al fresco which is so nice.

    I have eaten here twice before and have been very pleased the whole experience. However took friends there yesterday and was very embarrassed. The waiting staff were obviously busy and rushed but came across as rude. Having said the kitchen was very busy and out food could take up to 40 mins I asked for bread for the kids - still waiting. My order was totally wrong - gammon and eggs instead of ham and pineapple pizza!? A kids pizza was ineadable. They brought our deserts with no cutlery and had to wait a while on the hot drinks. Was so disappointed.
