The Bar at the Mercure Livingston Hotel is a short hop from Edinburgh yet offers the quietude sought by leisure and business visitors alike. The lounge menu is filled with tempting treats for weary travellers and busy guests seeking a satisfying bite. So pull up a chair in the bar and prepare to be pleased by a selection of freshly prepared British dishes with a hint of international influence sprinkled into the mixing bowl.
The generous lounge menu offers patrons a choice of light bites and snacks, or a hearty three course meal. Those looking for a smaller plate are presented with some delightful choices. Deli and classic sandwich selections feature favourite combinations such as honey roasted ham with wholegrain mustard, and egg mayonnaise teamed with verdant rocket. Hot alternative bread-based snacks include a playful fish finger ciabatta with a zesty lemon mayonnaise. Panini selections such as roasted vegetable and halloumi are offered alongside the all-day breakfast options. The conservative choice of toast and preserves is pitted against a hearty grilled pork sausage encased in a brioche bun. If diners enter The Bar at the Mercure Livingston Hotel hoping for something more filling, then they won’t be disappointed. Begin with a starter of caramelised red onion tart, freshly made soup, or smoked haddock fishcake to kick things off with a culinary bang. Indulge in one of the mouth-watering mains which feature lamb prepared two ways, beer battered haddock with mushy peas and cod loin served with Provençale vegetables. Or why not tuck into a succulent Aberdeen Angus steak or the meat-free alternative tasty falafel burger? Team mains with a side order of wilted spinach with nutmeg butter or a creamy dauphinoise potato dish to complete the plate with aplomb. White chocolate and cranberry bread and butter pudding makes for a fitting end to a delicious British menu.
This Livingston retreat provides guests with a place of comfort where friendly and polite staff are on hand to enhance visitors’ enjoyment.
