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.
An instant hit with locals, we were proudly voted ‘Leith’s Best Bar‘ in the first year of trading.
‘Burger Mama’ was born in early 2018 out of the passion to deliver a real ‘gourmet’ burger menu to the community.
WHY ARE WE GOURMET?
Our beef and chicken are sourced from the award winning local butcher, Findlay’s of Portobello. Our artisan buns are sourced and baked within a few hundred yards. We have a real passion to cater for our meat eating, vegetarian and vegan diners alike.
To compliment our menu we offer premium local and international drinks. With our inventive and evolving, seasonal, cocktails list, including innovative alcohol-free options, award winning teas and coffee, you can be sure of quality, great taste – and local sourcing whenever possible.
Our main menu is available from 4pm Monday – Thursday, and from 1pm Friday – Sunday.
We strive to be a favourite whether you’re a Leither, or a visitor just passing through.
A ramp is available on request for wheelchair access.
