Food and drink
Scottish produce is the specialitiy. Lamb, beef, venison, game, whichever is in season at the time, seafood and seasonal veg too.
It's game every time for me. It's something us Scots do well. Venison is low fat, high protein and when cooked well - you will be hooked. Try the cheese too, it's a lovely selection.
Ambience is reason enough to go to The Grain Store. Stone-walled and candle-lit with fresh flowers: it sounds clautrophobic but it's not. There is history in these walls, and you can just feel it.
Casual, laid back, can be slow, but relax and enjoy it.
On a first floor in Victoria Street, one of the best streets in Edinburgh for guddling about; it runs between The Grassmarket and George IV Bridge, next stop The Royal Mile.
Dinner is expensive. There is no other way of putting it with main courses starting at £14 then the prices hike to £22 and up to a mighty £30. Lunch is a good deal though at two courses for £11.50 or three for £15.
