Had to repost this as it’s one of our fa

WE ARE DOWN THE HATCH

It all started in December 2015 with an idea to create a diner with a difference! With 15 years of hospitality experience running restaurants and bars in Edinburgh, I thought it was time to have a go on my own! My wife Lesley had been running the cafe under another name and we saw an opportunity to improve the current offering. Myself, being from Canada, was desperately looking for something in the South Queensferry area that provided something totally different and satisfied my North American tastebuds! Albeit we have many nice eateries in the area, there was nothing that really pushed the boat in terms of flavour and experimentation. Down the Hatch was born! North American influenced food, with quality locally sourced ingredients!      
 
WE ARE OPEN DAILY FOR SIT IN, IN SOUTH QUEENSFERRY & EDINBURGH - ANTIGUA STREET. 
BOOK HERE!
YOU CAN STILL ORDER FOR COLLECTION & DELIVERY IN EDINBURGH, EXCLUSIVELY VIA UBER EATS. COLLECTION IS AVAILABLE WED-SUN FROM SOUTH QUEENSFERRY VIA OUR APP & DELIVERY VIA UBER EATS.

WHAT YOU THINK!

Never disaPpointed here! Food is fantastic and freshly made. Quick & cheerful service. Had the fish tacos which were awesome. Special was dirty fries with black pudding & chorizo. Milkshakes also on point!

EDINBURGHROO

 I had a Reuben, which was one of the best I've had in Scotland.

Incredible food, we’ll be back for sure!

FEEOHNAH

I don’t tend to have feelings about food. I enjoy it but rarely do I think “oh my word” as I taste something. I did here. That Philly Cheesesteak was absolutely delicious. The onions didn’t overpower it like I expected. I wolfed the lot. And the fries. It was roasting hot
I’m sitting here at home wanting to go back for another one.
