The very lovely and friendly staff at Southpour kindly invited me to go along to their Bloggers Brunch just prior to them opening the next day. Boy oh boy were we all in for a treat! Not only was all our cameras clicking like crazy but our tummies were rumbling at the thought of tucking into the wonderful spread that was laid on for all us bloggers to dig into.
This is a very welcomed and highly needed restaurant/bar in Newington. It’s modern, fresh, contemporary, open and comfortable. The window booths and the seating all around the windows opens this place up and floods it with light. The exposed brickwork and padlocks decor is hip and current. It will have a broad appeal from students to grandparents.
They serve up some fabulous brunches and their coffees are divine! I especially like their crockery.
I got to try a little bit of everything (well almost) – so prepare your eyes for a feast (and these are only some of their dishes)!
From the Brunch Plates Menu we have…
Pork sausage, ayrshire bacon, tomato, mushrooms, beans, eggs of your choice.
Oak smoked kippers, poached eggs, posh butter and creme fraiche.
Poached eggs, hot smoked salmon, sour dough and lemon creme fraiche.
Eggs, black forest ham, sour dough and hollandaise.
From the Wee Snack Plates we have …
Spicy crackling with apple sauce.
Blue murder, pear, rocket and walnut bruschetta.
Arbroath Smokie pate with soda bread.
Smoked ham, bechamel, gruyere toastie.
My favourite, the Venison bridie with homemade ketchup. I would go back just to eat these super tasty morsels.
The food here is seriously good. Fresh. Homemade. Great ingredients, cooked well. Its a great spot for craft beer, boutique spirits and cocktails and their prices are reasonable too.
I like this place. It has all the ingredients to succeed. Welcome to Edinburgh Southpour and thank you so very much for the invite. I will be back.
