We’ve been to the Kings Wark – a pub in Leith – several times for a Saturday lunch and I thought that I had blogged about it before. But, apparently not so I thought I would write a few words about it.
It’s an old Leith pub (15th century) rather than one of Leith’s newcomer restos but it’s a far cry from a traditional Scottish boozer. It’s very definitely a place to eat rather than a place to drink and they pride themselves on the quality of their food. In the past, I’ve mostly had fish there but today I decided to try the vegetarian option – chick peas, red onion and feta samosas with a chilli sauce. They really were rather good – one of the best lunchtime dishes I’ve had for a while. At £7.75, I thought they were excellent value.
Previously, I’ve had excellent smoked haddock risotto and my daughters tell me that it is super place for Sunday brunch. I would definitely recommend it for a Leith lunch.
