In the shell of a derelict pub with a dark history in the heart of Leith, Edinburgh, ‘The Lioness of Leith’ opened as a bar/bistro in December 2013.
We are proud to serve seasonal modern European and British cuisine alongside premium local and international drinks. With our inventive cocktails, award winning teas and coffee, you can be sure of quality, great taste and local sourcing whenever possible.
Lunch is served daily until 5pm with our evening menu available all day, every day. Both change seasonally, with daily specials and desserts adding additional choice and variation.
Weekends bring live DJs every Friday night, our brunch and breakfast menus, with Sundays hosting our ever popular family roasts until 4pm and live music from 8pm!
We won Ion Magazine’s Leith’s Best Bar in September 2014 and strive to be a favourite for locals and visitors alike.
A ramp is available on request for wheelchair access.
