Several great bars and restaurants line the verges of the Water of Leith but The King’s Wark is the best. The low ceiling and stone walls show its history and provide an intimate atmosphere when the light fades and candles are lit. There are four ale pumps and a great selection of drinks. They also offer great seafood-based mains and breakfasts. Looking for food? We can suggest several restaurants, including The Grain Store and The Scran and Scallie.
