Welcome to Blackwood's Bar and Grill, one of the few restaurants in Edinburgh with a Josper Chargrill oven.
Our diners are often well travelled… our dishes are more stay-at-home. We source local and regional cuisine, featuring ingredients farmed, caught or bred in Scotland. From farm or fishery to fork, we trace the provenance of our food, focusing on fresh, seasonal supplies. Keeping food miles to a minimum, our Chefs go out of their way to create succulent Scottish dishes.
True to our name, we use charcoal to grill our meat, fish, poultry and game. Our Josper chargrill oven cooks at ultra-high temperatures to retain food’s natural moisture and flavour. Steaks are charred and crusty on the outside yet juicily tender inside. Mussels, too, come out smoky and tender. Across all dishes, the burning embers add an authentic caramelised charcoal flavour.
Our enthusiasm for Scottish produce extends to our bijou bar, which displays over 30 Scotch single malts and blends. Our knowledgeable barmen also serve gins distilled on the islands of Islay and Shetland and vodka distilled in Glasgow. Beer drinkers can sip Scottish too, as we stock a pale ale from Aberdeen, a lager from Glasgow and three distinctive ales from Edinburgh.
