Both a Bistro and an arts venue The Lot is located at the foot of Edinburgh Castle. It functions as a café during the day offering a caffeine fix to passers-by, a restaurant at night and a gallery providing space for local artists work at any time on the upper floor. The menu focuses on wholesome fair-trade ingredients, including seafood chowder, spinach and goats cheese pasta bake and grilled Stornoway black pudding. At night the pace picks up with celildh and jazz nights and a table d'hote menu to complement the evening. The Lot is a lively place so make a visit if you'd like to participate in some friendly banter or some dancing.
