Nestled on the banks of the Union Canal in the conservation village of Ratho sits The Bridge Inn, a traditional pub with rooms with a passion for great food and drink.
Pull up a chair in the cosy bar or restaurant, or out on the terrace on sunny days, where you can enjoy a Scottish beer or scotch whiskey, or perhaps a fine wine or craft gin - there’s plenty on offer to wet your whistle. The Bridge Inn prides itself on using homegrown vegetables and its own-bred pork, as well as seasonal venison, game and fish from the local area, so you can expect a tempting menu of dishes such as haddock and chips or their pie of the week for when you’re feeling hungry. On chilly days, relax by the fire with a board game or simply take in the warm ambience, sure to ease away any stresses from the day.
Upstairs, 4 classically-styled double bedrooms, each named after local landmarks and famous folk, come with en-suite bathrooms, complimentary Siabann Scottish Soaps, Egyptian bed linen, a flat screen TV, WiFi, tea- and coffee-making facilities and a hairdryer. A good night’s sleep will be on the cards here, whether you book on a room-only or bed and breakfast basis, so you can wake refreshed and ready for a day of exploring.
Just 7 miles west of Edinburgh, Ratho hosts the Edinburgh International Climbing Arena, showcasing world-class climbing facilities and an aerial assault course, and with pretty walks along Union Canal and Ratho Park Golf Club nearby, The Bridge Inn makes an ideal base for active travellers.
