The Granary, Leith

 On a sunny Thursday afternoon a little while ago... I found myself with the mister, at The Granary in Leith..
I had a groupon to get my hair cut and coloured but the only appointment I could get before the voucher expired was 11am on a Thursday...  now, I don't know about the other ladies out there, but when I go in for a hair appointment, it's super rare that I will emerge before an hour... and probably at the very bare minimum, two hours (if some form of miracle occurs) if I'm having ANY form of colour...

So I figured there was really no point in me going to work for 2 hours to leave for my appointment, then going back for another 2 hours before I left again... so I just took the day off! The mister for some random reason I can't remember was due a half day off, so he worked until lunch time and then came to meet me.. :) *happiness*

Anywhos.. it was a lovely sunny afternoon, if with a slight chill in the air.. we wandered around Leith for a bit and tossed up our options for "lunch"... boy am I glad we decided on The Granary!

Being 'arty'
Looking toward the bar
I loved all the little quotes on the mezzanine!
My new haircut.. :)
Can't really see the colour.. :(
I had a shrimp salad
It was delicious
He had chicken terrine
Served up with oak cakes...
It too was yummy!! Relish was NOMS..
I had portobello & haloumi burger.. mmmmm portobello.... NOM!
The wedges were crunch outside & fluffy inside = Perfection!
He had risotto.. I think.. Spinach??
Don't let the bland looking'ness fool you...
It was tasty and fully of flavour...
Oh Hai!! :)
 I loved this.. :)
And the bike on the wall.. :)
The service was attentive and polite.. our food arrived fairly quickly.. took long enough that you know they were cooking it fresh.. but not too long that you wonder what else they're doing to it...

The restaurant is huge and very lofty, but still feels cosy and comfortable.. There's a selection of games you can choose from, or they have free wi-fi as well... 

Prices were reasonable/borderline pricey but the food was good... I would definitely recommend it to anyone and would love to go back for dinner one evening.. :)

You will find The Granary at 32-34 The Shore, Edinburgh


  1. Ooh, yum! I love risotto, even colorless risotto :)

  2. I love risotto too!
    I have to learn how to make it at home... so I can have risotto goodness all the time!

  3. The food looks incredible, your hair look adorable and I can't wait to see a good picture of the color! Oh and by the way, I think this is the first time I've seen a picture of your mister! I'm glad you guys were able to enjoy the day together! =)

    And They Lived Happily Ever After...

  4. Thanks Mrs B!
    I still haven't managed to get a good picture of the colour.. I think it just didn't come out that great.. :(
    It's supposed to be like mahogany and plum... but.. it just looks dark... :(

    He hasn't made too many physical appearances yet... but I'm sure he will appear more in future.. :)


♥ Your turn on the soapbox.. ♥
