The list— No. 26

The Scran & Scallie

Holder of a Michelin Bib Gourmand, Edinburgh’s award-winning Scran & Scallie is the brainchild of Scottish chefs Dominic Jack and Michelin-starred Tom Kitchin.

The pub, which opened in 2013, is found in the Scottish capital’s busy Stockbridge neighbourhood and is backed by the team behind the popular Michelin-starred restaurant the Kitchin and the award-winning Castle Terrace.

The climber of 10 places in 2021’s Top 50 Gastropubs list showcases great Scottish ‘scran’ alongside a range of traditionally brewed ales and artisan beers served against a cosy, family-friendly, backdrop.

The Scran & Scallie has received rave reviews nationwide for nearly a decade thanks to its take on seasonal pub classics, a warm and welcoming approach to both service and its Scottish heritage, and a menu punctuated by a ‘from nature to plate’ philosophy.

Inspired by 18th century menus and Robert Burns suppers of the time, the pub’s Scots language menus boast modern classics such as fish and chips, fish pie and Sunday roasts supplemented by seasonal plates including barbequed octopus, shellfish ravioli and duck terrine to name but a few.
