Boasting views to the gothic and grand Melville Castle, The Melville Inn Lasswade enjoys a fantastic country location which can be enjoyed from the al fresco beer garden. With a beautiful stone and white exterior, and a classic brick and oak interior, The Melville Inn is a great country destination. The menu of well-loved British meals can also be enjoyed next to a toasty hearth.

Hearty Sunday roasts and trusty British dishes head The Melville Inn menu, and a range just for kids offers mini versions of pub favourites. Signature Vintage pies offer fillings like beef & merlot with buttered peas, while The Melville Inn ‘Vintage classics’ menu includes lemon & garlic-roasted chicken with seasoned chips.

Paying homage to the Great British pub, the Vintage Inn bar stock includes cask-conditioned beers, real ales and a meticulously compiled wine list. Thirst-quenching offerings include seasonal non-alcoholic cocktails and freshly-pressed juices, and rich coffee is brewed freshly throughout the day.

Close to Dalkeith, The Melville Inn is just 17 minutes’ drive into central Edinburgh.

    Mother's Day menu was very good and quality of food excellent. Service friendly and very efficient, a fraction slow, but not bad considering the large number of customers for lunch. Shall look forward to visiting again at a less popular time.

    Good food served by lovely staff in very pleasant cosy surroundings. We are regular customers here and liked it so much that we bought shares in Mitchells & Butlers.

    Service a bit slow they seemed to mix up what we wanted which delayed our meal. This was a special occasion my friend and I celebrating our 75th birthdays. My husbands potato mash was burnt around the edges. My sweet potatoes were a bit overdone.
