REVIEW – The Saint, St Stephen Street

*****
The Saint in St Stephen Street is amongst a selection of Stockbridge gems such as The Baillie and Bell’s Diner .  Wonderful food is served based on seasonal and local produce with a large wine selection by the glass which is perfect for trying out a new variety without the expense of a whole bottle.  I have eaten here three times now and these photos are from a mixture of all 3 as the menu changes frequently, but I doubt you would be disappointed with the choices when you visited.

Inside The Saint

Set down a set of stairs, there are a mixture of old wooden tables and chairs, with a selection of easy listening music playing in the background.   The Saint is also a pub, so you can pop in for a drink, but you would probably find it hard to resist the food, which is undoubtedly the star of the show here. 

Wonderful starter

One visit I had the salmon and oatcake starter which was the beginning of an excellent meal.  Starters are around £4 and mains which have included fish dishes, duck and vegetarian risottos are around the £9 mark making The Saint serve some of the best and cheapest food in Edinburgh. 

Heavenly desserts

Dessert aficionados will not be disappointed with options such as chocolate spring rolls or Scottish pancakes with homemade toffee sauce (pictured).  A good relaxed service is offered, with ample time to talk over coffee or linger longer for after dinner drinks. 

Suitable for disabled?   The Saint is down a steep set of stairs and not suitable for wheelchairs.
