From Our Editors

The Old Chain Pier is situated on the verges of the Edinburgh coast on the site of 19th-century docks. The eatery is located around 15 minutes’ drive from both central Edinburgh and Leith and benefits from far-reaching views of the sea. The kitchen prepares regional seafood delicacies such as cullen skink and Scottish mussels while Mexican and Italian-inspired dishes provide flavours from further afield. Chefs harness locally sourced, seasonal ingredients and also offer brunch and buffet menus and a range of children’s favourites. Fare is complemented by craft beers and cask ales as well as international wines and spirits. The classically styled interior sports patterned feature walls, ambient lighting and framed artwork, while terrace seating overlooks the water. The pub welcomes canine visitors, exhibits local artwork and regularly plays host to live music and seasonally themed events.

Food is freshly cooked to order. The fish was absolutely delicious in a crisp light batter. Very nice sea views and a pleasant atmosphere

It wasn't so great this time round been quite few times to dine here previously and was always very good. But this time the fish was soggy like under batter and batter just didn't taste nice as if the receipt had been been changed. I found bones in mine first off which put me right off from start as I'm really not fan of bones in my fish always had problem with that after incident when I was child. Chips were nice but even some those were soggy from the fish could see oil on plate which wasn't nice I really struggled to eat it it left 3/4 fish on plate. Pudding was good I had chocolate fudge cake but was really disapointed with the fact it's changed the afternoon tea at old chain pier we had one before and it was lovely and it was two tiered cake selection mini cakes and fresh scones with jam cream which were good. But this time round it was select tray bake which they don't even make on premises they buy in I noticed well defo the millionaire shortbread as I seen it being taken out packet. Or you can select cake or pudding type thing or ice cream. I didn't think this was as good a option. Pretty sure when we went last Time was maybe smaller piece fish and then we had selection mini cakes and scones with hot drink which was just prefect for afternoon tea. I'm thinking it has maybe changed hands or something not sure just seems menu sounds little different and things not quite same.
