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.

    The Meals in the Melville Inn are always of a superb selection and great quality, suffice to say it is a Culinary Delight & that is why I always go to this restaurant. The staff are attentive & your meal isn't rushed for them to get another sitting in. I use the restaurant as a social eaterie as it has such a relaxing ambience, I can't think of a better restaurant in the Mid/East Lothian area to eat in .

    We booked a table for 3 for a Xmas lunch for my mum. It was fantastic, from choice of menu to excellent waiting staff. The food was excellent. The waiter was very professional and helpful with menu choice. Overall a very enjoyable time.

    I found the atmosphere very quite and enjoyable. Christmas decorations are just right. The staff member who served us was very pleasant at all times. Our food was hot and looked and tasted great. My particular favourite has and is the crumble. I still feel a few more staff would help as we still had to wait 30 minutes before being served.

    I had lunch with my two daughters on Friday 4th was not my first time at the Melville but it was theirs.they as well as I,were delighted with the service and food.While my daughters opted for the Christmas menu,i stayed with my favouret of the chicken and leek pie for the main courses,the starters and sweet were everybit as good and served by an exelent waitress,I of course will return and I am sure my daughters who as I said,had never been before,will also return.thank you for a great day.

    The food was that good last week that I went back on 29.11.2015 for another gastronomic experience, I tried the Sweet Potato chips with my main course ( not to my taste but then I am a fussy eater ) I can't fault this restaurant on anything because it is such a nice eaterie.
