“Properly fresh fish with no fuss but lots of care” (plus delectable puds) continues to explain the success of this two-decades-old haunt in a historic Leith harbour watchtower. Their sibling venue The Shore, next door, serves British grub, and there’s also a city-centre spin-off, the literally titled ‘Fishers In the City’.

“Faultless fish” – and “first-class puddings, too” – have made this 17th-century Leith harbour watchtower a “charming” Edinburgh destination for two decades. Success at this original has brought the Shore bar/restaurant next door and a branch ‘In The City’.
