We were there as a larger party for brunch, which was nice, one waitress was really nice and helpful one a little grumpy. But overall good experience probably would return

Called in at The Steading on way home from a day out to the Borders with my wife and a couple of friends. We were warmly greeted and shown to a table immediately even on a Saturday night without a booking. The menu was quite extensive and very reasonably priced plus staff were friendly and attentive. Portions were more than ample with good food cooked well and served piping hot. There is a good sized car park attached. Would recommend this eatery and will, I am sure, return at some time.

Popped in for our usual breakfast this morning, last time was about 4-5 weeks ago. Was surprised to see it so quiet as normally there would be a few tables busy at that time. Ordered the our usuals and some drinks,was dissapointed to have to ask for the hot drinks as they weren't brought out after ordering and the person running it seemed to pop out for a cigarette inbetween.
Chef brought the breakfast out and had to get the cutlery for us, which unfortunatly was dirty. Bar area was also full of glasses which is unusual and there was other members of staff milling about.
Tea was too strong, two tea bags in a small pot is overkill. The cooked breakfast was ok but bacon was too thick and tough.
Having been regulars for breakfast we were really dissapointed in how things have gone downhill and not sure we'll be returning any time soon.

The Steading in Edinburgh is always one of the best places to eat never had a bad meal, it is a small very friendly, dogs allowed bar near the Pentlands where a lot of dog walkers frequently walk their dogs & even although restaurant quite often fully booked if you hadn’t booked already they allow tables in the bar to be used with service being requested by yourself from the bar.

Worth a wee visit if never been.
