Edinburgh Larder goes East was a night within the first birthday week celebrations as well as a collaboration night with Barneys Beer. We had visited before (review here) and enjoyed the look of the place. It was £25 for 3 courses with a beer taster.

The light spices didn’t overpower the food or the beer and the chat with Barneys Beer was an added bonus. Cosy and informal bistro with some great food. One to watch we think.
