    We went to Hectors in Stockbridge for some drinks and grub pretty standard menu but the burger was excellent.

    Mini pub crawl around the area what is it with people taking their dogs out with them on a Saturday night!

    Thats a posh area full of rugby supporting hoorah Henrys. The best pub in Stockbridge shut down, The St Bernards Bar.

    I like the area, but not the amount of dogs - especially in a dark bar, what's the point in that? Go take it for a walk or something.

    One for the pet peeves thread, but when owners just let their dogs walk around and go up to other people then accompanying it with some guff like "He likes you" or "he won't bite".
    Mon the Hibs.

    Yeah I like it also, the Raeburn was great as it was so hot and sunny cant beat drinking outside. While most dogs were on the leads there was a few scuffles with other dogs surely they can leave them home for a few hours but obviously they are some sort of status symbol now.

    I like dogs so I donít mind it, but I do think itís something people shouldnít be doing. If you donít like dogs you shouldnít have to put up with one coming over and jumping up on you, licking you, sniffing you etc.

    The outdoor bit at the Raeburn is nice. The Antiquary is my favourite though - great food!

    I don't mind them generally, I'd just rather they left me alone. My Girlfriend is extremely scared of them though. So if one does come up to us, I usually have to proactively get in the way and give it attention so it'll leave her alone. No idea what we'd do if I was scared of them too!

    aye, went in once and once only. Came back from the bar and my missus accused me of farting and told me I was stinking. I then noticed it too, the smell was coming from my pint lol.

    The customers were alright to be fair, needless to say my stella never got touched.

    The Bow Bar is good. For connoisseurs of beer. Quite pricey but that keeps the neds out.

    This. I have an extreme case of cynophobia (fear of dogs) and it is a right pain the arse when you go somewhere for a relaxing drink and thereís dogs coming up to you. You even get them in cafes and restaurants now too. Donít get me started on shop owners that take their dogs to work with them. Iíll actively avoid places with that ridiculous red dogs welcome sign on their door.

    I used to frequent the Dean in the 80ís. The team I played for, played their home games at Inverleith Park. Went to the Dean after the games
    God forbid if you sat on a regulars seat

    The Dean had quite a heavy reputation. The Rag Doll was OK. Then there was Shambles. Odd place.

    More Inverness recommendations, having spent a week up there recently.

    Aspendos - Turkish, lots of different deals. Generous portions and reasonably-priced. Service was decent, food was delicious and the bill was light on the wallet. Highlight was a starter of lightly-battered mussel skewers. Iím definitely going back next time Iím up.

    The Rajah - as the name suggests, itís Indian. Itís in a basement and their WiFi cuts in and out but other than that I couldnít fault it. It was absolutely heaving on a Tuesday night and it looked like it was mostly locals, which tells its own story. I had been recommended it by a local and it was well worth the visit.

    The River House - itís small, maybe thirty covers, and it looks like an old-school pub on a corner block, but instead of the bar they have the kitchen open to public view. The chef/owner Alfie is incredibly friendly. Lots of fish dishes among the starters and mains. I had turbot for main and it was maybe the best plate of food Iíve eaten this year. I would heartily recommend this place and I will be back the first chance I get.

    Rocpool - I have posted before about this place but it constantly impresses. Completely booked out the night I was there, which I suspect is the case for spring through to autumn. Not cheap but the service is great, the menu is luscious and the wine list is decently-priced and pretty extensive. As I think I posted before, their cheeseboard is all ewesí milk, and they usually chuck on a guest cheese as a bonus. Itís tremendous.
    There's only one thing better than a Hibs calendar and that's two Hibs calendars

    Was massively dissapointed with the Boozy Cow last night. Id been a few years previously and thought it was very good, unless I got it on a bad night, it seems to have gone downhill massively. A dense and dry burger more fitted to pub meals straight out the microwave.

    Was also at The Walnut at the weekend which I was very impressed with, scallops to start, pork belly as a main and sticky toffee pudding, good value at 3 courses for £25 for the quality you get

    It's not. I don't like the pretentious, stuck-up, posh places you get in many parts.. but just because it's nice area doesn't mean Stockbridge falls into that category.

    Always liked the Baillie (on the road down).

    The Bailie and Kay's Bar are two of the finest pubs in the country.

    The Antiquary definitely has sky. Not sure about the Raeburn though, they donít even have TVs as far as I know? Unless weíre talking about what used to be The Raeburn on Dean Street rather than The Raeburn on Raeburn Place? The Raeburn on Dean Street has changed into a shan cocktail bar called Boston & Hawthorne, was in there a couple of weeks ago and there was only one person in.

    Has anyone been to Fazenda? Going tonight, looking forward to it.

    I meant the one on Raeburn place, I'm sure there was TVs in there. The cocktail bar you talk about often have a pizza and cocktails deal on itison, and is quite decent!

    Fazenda is really good. Skip lunch though! :green grim
    If you've been to viva Brazil in Glasgow then it's pretty much the same, the non-skewer buffet option is a bit more expansive, but the main show is obviously the meats.

    Oops!

    It's rubbish in the winter when they put the coal fire on... to hot and smelly!







    That better?

    Aye, and the food is pretty rubbish too, I mean who wants artisan meat pies when there's a perfectly good Greggs selling their sloppy fayre down at Stockbridge.

    In all seriousness, this is one of the few pubs in town where I'll walk in from Corstorphine on a Sunday, maybe via the Water of Leith at Roseburn, buy a paper then sit down for a pint or two. Kay's were selling craft beers before they became popular with the bearded hipster hoi polloi!

    Edited to add, and to get this thread back on track, the food seriously is VERY good here, traditional pub fayre and then some!

    The Raeburn on Raeburn Place definitely has TVs as Iíve watched the rugby in there before. Not sure if they have Sky or show the football though.

    Fazenda was decent. The novelty of eating steaks begins to wear off eventually though and I think Iíd rather just spend the money in Chop House or the soon to open (possibly tomorrow?) Hawksmoor. Iím absolutely gubbed after it. I will say the chicken heart is ****ing rotten though
