Excellent burger for me, and extremely cost effective children's menu, which for once was a scaled down version of the adult menu, which is what I wanted as a parent

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.

    Food service was very rushed. We ordered at the bar and our starters arrived within 3 or 4 minutes of ordering - way too quickly. Whilst one starter was cold the other was a hot starter so this seemed too quick even though place was almost empty. My main fishcakes were lovely and crispy on the outside but only warm inside.

    I feel the rushed food service would account for the fishcakes not being hot enough. Am not convinced that my dining companions mushroom starter was hot either - unless the topping had been microwaved.

    Admittedly I didn't complain' about the fishcakes so did not give you an opportunity to resolve. Am sure you would have but I didn't have the energy! The whole place was almost empty when we arrived but I wonder if there was a desire to rush us through before the pub quiz as it got extremely busy later on!?

    Aside from above the staff were very friendly but this is the second time in a row I have been a bit disappointed with your food service.

    A little disappointing lunch was bland. However, on Saturday night we enjoyed a fantastic meal

    Good food and service, very clean and comfortable. The heirloom tomato salad with rocket lettuce and mozzarella was the best I've ever tasted! Our first fish and chips since we have been in the U.K. Very fresh and light, rib eye steak was ok.

    It was a lovely evening, the food was good and the service was efficient - although a tad slow between courses. I would ask for another table the next time as we were opposite a fire door that was opened 2/3 times and it was very cold when opened. The staff were all very pleasant.
