The McKirdy brothers – owners of a local butcher business established in 1895 – have cut out the middleman and now run one of Edinburgh’s best steakhouses. The friendly staff here serve up starters – such as haggis with Drambuie sauce – and juicy, perfectly cooked steaks, from rump to T-bone, accompanied by mustard mash or crispy fries. There’s a kids’ menu, and you can get a two-course early dinner (until 6.30pm) for £14.
