The Potting Shed, 32 Potterrow, EH8 9BT

PRICE RANGE: around £40 for dinner for two, excluding drinks

The Potting Shed has just relaunched with a whole new concept and a brand new menu focusing on tapas sized portions.Soorderingtwoor three plates and sharing was the ideal way to eat.

We sat in a warm and cosy corner of the restaurant made comfortable with banquette seating. The party next to us was seated on a big wooden feasting table and benches – perfect for a night out with friends.
Clay pots are everywhere – hanging from the ceiling, pots as light shades, pots as wine coolers. Cutlery is served in Tate & Lyle Cans and the service is friendly and welcoming. Run by the The Minto family who own the Sun Inn in Dalkeith I knew that the food would be good and I was not disappointed. We chose glasses of pear and rum cider with nibbles of whitebait , lime and coriander mayo was piping hot and delicious – crispy whitebait coated in crunchy batter and seasalt.

Dishes are from the land, from the sea or from the ground.Wesharedadishof pot roast pigeon, blackberry and tattie scone which was a triumph – served rare with the wonderful flavours of the pigeon breast enhanced by the sharp berry flavours and accompanied by a wonderfully crunchy tattie scone. King scallops with celeriac, juniper savoy and duck was presented in a rich creamy sauce, with scallops cooked to perfection and celeriac adding a twist of unusual flavour to the scallops. The matcha pannacotte with clementine sorbet and pistachio (£5) was creamy, tart, and full of flavour.

This is a lively, fun eaterie, with welcoming staff , delicious food and great value.
