Okay, hands up! I’m terribly late with my review of The Bullfinch, a pub in Leith. In a previous life, it was The Pond, but it has had new owners for two years now. I’ve been popping in since it became The Bullfinch, and despite not drinking as much as I used to, I really […]

If there is ever hesitation about eating somewhere, you can always rely on an award to give you that little push in the right direction. This was not my first […]
