What better way to enjoy a Sunday than in a cosy country pub with a great selection of British roasts starting from £11.50 – served all day and evening on Sundays using the freshest seasonal ingredients.
Edinburgh’s oldest surviving watering hole, The Sheep Heid, is a restored village pub & restaurant which is said to have been a favourite among monarchs & poets in the past. With a beer garden offering al fresco dining in warm weather, and rustic interiors including high-backed leather armchairs by crackling log-fires, this gastro pub serves a seasonal menu of uncomplicated British food.
Sourcing ingredients from trusted local suppliers, The Sheep Heid Inn 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 Sheep Heid 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 Sheep Heid in Edinburgh is a 7-minute drive from Brunstane Rail Station.

The Sheep Heid was hopeless. Despite booking, on arrival we were told that we could not be offered food for > 1 hr after our booked time as a large party were being fed upstairs. We returned home with no food. There was no apology or proper explanation.
