Footlights Bar.: "Good food and not expensive." Footlights Bar Tip by planxty
Footlights Bar, Edinburgh: 1 reviews and 1 photos
This is not a restaurant as such, but rather a pub that sells very good food. It's a big pub, with a strong emphasis on football and music (MTV, plasma screens etc.) but if that's not your thing there are tables outside where it is pleasant to sit in the summer. We visited once and were so impressed we went back again another day.
The food is very much of the "pub food" genre - burgers, steaks, fish and chips etc. but it is very well done. I must make special menu of the soups which are homemade and change daily. We had bacon and lentil and also a delicious butternut squash and ginger.
Given that it is in the centre of Edinburgh, prices are very reasonable. they have a deal where you can get two main meals for £8:95 or a three course steak dinner for £9:95. The then Mrs._planxty said the steak was very good, and also asked for an honourable mention here for the sticky toffee pudding.
A quick word of praise also for the young staff who were extremely friendly and courteous.
Favorite Dish: Haggis, neeps and tatties - what else in Scotland?
Address: 7 Spital St, old Town, Edinburgh, EH3.
Price Comparison: less expensive than average
Directions: Walk along Lothian road away from Princes Street, turn left into Bread Street and second left into Spittal Street. The pub is just on your right.
