The Sun Inn, Dalkeith


Whether your priority is food, setting or service, you won’t be disappointed with a first date at The Sun Inn. Proudly family-run, this award-winning pub concentrates on the little details that make all of the difference when it comes to a special first date.

Details like their love for all things local – they’re happy to show you their list of local suppliers who bring fresh ingredients for Head Chef Ian Minto to conjure into mouth-watering dishes. Even the wallpaper and furniture is handmade by local craftsmen. So a date at The Sun Inn doesn’t only mean an enjoyable meal, it’s a way of supporting the community too.

It comes recommended by eHarmony’s Dean and Alison, who have pretty good taste when it comes to pubs – The Sun Inn won the AA Pub of the Year in 2010-211 and Scottish Gastropub of the Year 2011, as well as a rosette from the AA in recognition of their food. “It’s one of our favourite locations,” says Dean, “a lovely little country pub, and with open fire places, it’s cosy and intimate.”

Just 20 minutes away from Edinburgh’s city centre, you might be persuaded to forego the drive home when you see their rooms – they’ve only got five, but they’ve been given an AA 4* rating too.

We’re sure you’re convinced, so book your table with a call to 0131 663 2456 or find out which local suppliers they use or their latest menu on their website –
