Review last reviewed on 01/06/2009

Lying slightly off the beaten track, even for Leith, this quaint little gastro pub is a real find. The whole place is reminiscent of an old ladys parlour where the old dear has turned to the hard stuff and reopened as a pub. The trinkets around the maroon painted room with its old oak bar remain, as do the delicate china plates, cups and saucers.

The tea room feel is enhanced by the popular 'Pot-Tails', basically cocktails served in china tea pots with accompanying cups and saucers. These include 'Easy Peazy Lemon Squeezy, zingy fresh lemonade with a delicate kiss of gin and 'Pear Necessities, Wyborowa pear vodka with a dash of lemonade and pear juice on top'.

There's a very reasonably priced wine menu with appropriately quirky descriptions and interesting beers such as Leffe Brune and Deuchers on hand pump. However, the excellent food remains the main attraction with Mad Hatter's Tea with cucumber sandwiches and Roseleaf homemade waffles on offer alongside more complete meals.
