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!
|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 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
