  1. 30 Things To Eat Before You Die

    27 - The Ship's Smokehouse Platter

    27 - The Ship's Smokehouse Platter

    We’re delighted to have our ‘Smokehouse Platter’ included in The Times Magazine article titled “30 Things To Eat Before You Die”.

    That’s quite an accolade. Not only that, but The Ship was only one of two selected dishes found at restaurants in Scotland!

    “If I’m in Edinburgh, I will usually go down to the waterfront in Leith to visit The Ship on the Shore for one of it’s famous Smokehouse Platters. The dish brings together the finest Scottish seafood; Arbroath smokies, salmon, queen scallops, mackerel, haddock and mussels – one generous portion really is more than enough for two to share. It’s very simple, but utterly delicious – and even better sitting outside by the water with a glass of champagne.”

    A big thank you must go to Olga Polizzi who chose our Smokehouse platter to be included in this prestigious list.

  2. Britain’s Best Foodie Street

    The Ship has been selected in Google’s Street View – 2010 Best Street Awards.

    The Ship on the Shore was runner-up in the ‘Best Foodie Street’ category, in competition with various other streets in the UK. Voting was carried out by a specialist Panel, comprising of VisitBritain and various professionals in the food industry.

    We’d like to say congratulations to everyone else on The Shore and hope we can all make improvements and perhaps take it to the next stage and win the award in 2011.

  3. Art Gallery @ The Ship Feb 2010

    Davy MacDonald’s Champagne Series Paintings are on display in the The Ship’s Bar.

    Thanks to everyone who came along to our opening night on the 2nd of February 2010 – it was a great night and we hope to see you again soon. We’ve been getting reports that our Bloody Mary Oyster Shot went down awfully well…

    If you missed our opening night, why not come along and sample both the visual delights (Davy’s Paintings!) and our delicious seafood and accompanying range of Champagne. This will be a constatnly evolving gallery as pieces are sold and new ones are painted and displayed.
