Iain Mellis Cheesemonger has been going strong for over 25 years. Located on Edinburgh’s charming Victoria Street, a curving strip of cobblestones with plenty of old-world charm. You’ll find walls of cheese and wine by the glass, making it the perfect pit-stop whilst discovering the old town.
Step back in time to medieval Scotland. The Witchery is located in a historic 16th century building, close by the gates of Edinburgh Castle and home to nine fantasy hotel suits and an outrageously theatrical restaurant. The Witchery by The Castle is a enchanting with its secret garden, dark wooden panelling and candelabras, the charming details inject an air of romance and mystery. A nice little spot to stop whilst exploring the Royal Mile.
Who's up for a roast hog roll? I put the call out on Facebook and Oink kept popping up in the 'oh you have to eat this' list. Local farmers Adam Marshall and Sandy Pate started peddling rolls at Edinburgh Farmers Market in 2001 and now have three stores under their belts. Line up and choose your size (piglet, oink or the whopping 250g size dubbed the 'grunter'), bread, stuffing and sauce... and away you go! This pulled pork roll had just the right amount of crackle and toppings... delish! Definitely one for the meat lovers.
