Since 2017, Edinburgh's Stocks Urban Bistro & Bar has been the place to go for modern European dishes made using premium ingredients and years of cooking experience. Stock serves the best of Scottish produce, sourcing from artisan suppliers and producers across the country. Expect mouthwatering flavours that can be gladly washed down with handpicked wines and carefully crafted cocktails. Specialising in fresh seafood and Scotland’s finest Aberdeen Angus steaks, this refined restaurant impresses with its unique style – it marries the elegance of a fine dining restaurant with the pizzazz of a hip bistro. Located on St Giles’ Street in the heart of Edinburgh’s Old Town, and only a stone’s throw away from the famous Royal Mile, Stocks Urban Bistro is perfect for after-work drinks, a sophisticated dinner for two, or any occasion, really. Guests can also choose to unwind at Stocks’ delightful cocktail bar, The Black Dahlia.
Decided to follow a recommendation from a friend. I typically avoid anywhere in the Royal mile for food but stocks holds up well. Our lunch party all enjoyed the food and wine and the service was great. Bit disappointed that the set lunch menu was off which meant a decidedly pricier food bill for a casual lunch. Bit of an issue with the temperature of the dining room, we were near the door but there was no additional heat which meant everyone was a bit chilly. Staff tried to heat the place up a bit and offered to let us move which was the right response. Overall an enjoyable option in a crowded Edinburgh dining marketplaae
Excellent affordable food in a great atmosphere. There was a little mix up with deserts but that was rectified by the staff at the time.
