The Ship on the Shore – Champagne Bar & Seafood Restaurant

Living in Scotland we have the opportunity to explore and enjoy the freshest and most extraordinary fish and seafood. At the Ship on the Shore we take great pride in using the freshest ingredients which arrives daily from sustainable stocks. We love this gift from nature’s larder, served with champagne and fine wines and wanted to share it with you, our fellow travellers. Our aim is to supply Scotland’s best seafood dining experience offering sustainable Scottish fish and seafood served with simplicity and style.

Our approach is simple really; we offer the finest ingredients, passionately prepared and expertly presented. When the sun shines our delicious seafood can be served outside on our shore-front terrace beside the Water of Leith, when it doesn’t our fabulous and atmospheric bar and restaurant awaits you.

Whether its a lunch or dinner your after, or luxuriating over our Fruits de Mer ‘Royale’ or Hot Shellfish Platter, or just enjoying a delicious glass of champagne, wine or cocktail in our fabulous bar – the Ship on the Shore offers informal, understated excellence.

We serve food all day, everyday, from our delicious menus from 11.30 onwards.
