2 for 1 at The Blackbird

Located in the thriving city of Edinburgh, The Blackbird is a chic location for socialising and dining. This eatery won the Scottish Style Award in 2013, and it is clear to see why from the moment you enter. During the day the earthy tones of the decor create a relaxed atmosphere where you can enjoy a leisurely lunch or have an informal business meeting.

The décor has obviously taken up some serious time and effort, and the team have managed to create a cool, contemporary atmosphere throughout the whole venue. Think exposed stone, intricate fireplaces and awesome wallpaper.

With a menu that changes with the seasons, featuring local, fair trade suppliers – they definitely have a conscience when it comes to their food. A couple of options are crispy chicken schnitzel with wild mushroom, white wine and parmesan fettucine Alfredo, or the walnut and caramelised pear salad with Applewood smoked Cheddar, wilted kale and fresh raspberries (if you fancy it, add chicken or grilled Tiger prawns).

The Blackbird offers a great place to eat, drink and socialise in welcoming and homely surroundings. Don’t miss out on this Edinburgh eatery, book a table today.

    I'm always in here for drinks but have only eaten here a handful of times. It can be hit or miss with the food I have found, more good than bad though. This time it was brilliant. Really tasty and quick to come out. Service was great too. "

    I visited the Blackbird for lunch with friends and we were very pleasantly surprised!
    We had lovely leisurely lunch of iced coffees, a prawn wrap and chicken pesto ciabattas topped off with a brownie, waffles (both served with the most amazing pistachio ice cream) and an eton mess.
    Everything was delicious and we particularly enjoyed the relaxing atmosphere and the attentive, helpful and friendly staff.
    Will definitely be going back! "

    We have been a few times with our dog and they are really helpful and friendly. One of the few places that are dog friendly which is great when sitting in the beer garden. Food is great and a good range of choice. "
