A quirky lounge bar and kitchen, The Villager has been serving the residents of Edinburgh since 2003 and is still a hot favourite in the city centre for cocktails, food and fun. Located in the heart of the Scottish capital, The Villager is perfectly positioned close to the National Museum of Scotland whilst the Festival Theatre is just a short walk away, making it a good option for pre or post theatre drinks and food.
Expect a diverse globally inspired menu which gives a good nod to its Scottish roots at the same time by using traditional Scottish ingredients in many of its dishes. Lunch and dinner menus vary slightly and both offer a choice of light bites and larger dishes. Try the succulent venison steaks served with parsnip mash, haggis bonbons and peppercorn sauce or confit of pork belly stuffed with black pudding and served with mash and silver skin onion gravy. Sharing platters are great for groups and features goodies such as haggis bonbons, pork spring rolls, tempura king prawns, chickpea fritter and olives and dips.
A trendy hangout in Edinburgh, The Villager certainly stands out as a cool drinking and dining establishment with its bright red canopies and modern red outdoor seating to the front. Inside a quirky and eclectic décor includes white walls covered in painted robots and funky wallpaper with cool cat designs. Huge Chesterfields offer plenty of comfort whilst there are lots of tables both high and low for dining.
Enjoy great food and cocktails at The Villager, a firm favourite in the city of Edinburgh.
