Revamping the husk of a historic Duke Street pub, The Lioness of Leith in Edinburgh is an award-winning, colourful bar and bistro bringing more than a little sunshine into the life of Leith. This inviting eatery has dedicated itself to artisan gourmet burgers, always sourcing top-quality produce and offering guests a truly extensive menu. Locals love it and it’s easy to understand why. The 100% Scotch beef patties are made in-house from flank and skirt steak, the herb-fed chicken is free-range and their freshly baked brioche buns are local. They also serve multiple vegan and vegetarian burgers, as well as killer cocktails. With welcoming hospitality always on show, The Lioness of Leith is one proud local you’ll want to den down with on a regular basis. Advance bookings at this Edinburgh hotspot are recommended.

We loved the relaxed atmosphere and attentive staff. We booked as we had an itison voucher, the burgers were amazing. We will be back soon.
Thank you to the lovely staff both in the bar and kitchen for sorting me and the girls out with a speedy dinner when we were running late. Burger was juicy and delicious, fries fresh and crispy and the ice cream made us all smile. Monday night suddenly became a good one thanks to you.
