Restaurant description

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.

    This is the 2nd time I have lunched here with 4 friends. This time we had a much better table in a conservatory. Much brighter than our last visit. Also right next to a wood burning stove which was very welcome touch on a cold day! Our server, a very tall guy with I think a European accent was very efficient and pleasant. 4 of us had the pizza which was delicious. One of us had the fish and chips which sadly she didn't enjoy. The lady who brought the desserts was also very friendly. Sadly the restaurant was very quiet (as it was the last time we were there). It looks like the opening of another eatery right across the road has had an impact on the Melville. I think some people find it a bit confusing finding the access to the Melville as it is the same entrance to Debbie's Garden Centre. Maybe a more obvious sign might help?? All in all we did enjoy and it's nice to not be rushed and made to feel as if they want you to vacate your table.

    Food and drink good. Understaffed so front of house team rushing about, not helped by kitchen being slow in service.

    Really enjoyed our lunch. We chose to have mains and puddings. Two friends had the beef merlot pie and I had fish and chips. Plates were all cleared as food was delicious. Portions were substantial. We decided to have coffee with mini pudding....Portions were not mini although we were assured by our waitress that they were indeed mini versions !!! Very good value for money.
