Edinburgh Eating & Drinking Award 2018 - We Won!!

The List's annual Eating & Drinking Guide, published on 18 April 2018 with coverage of almost 1000 food and drink venues across Edinburgh and Glasgow, has announced the winners of its reformatted Eating & Drinking Awards for 2018.

The guide has traditionally used its awards, first established in the 10th edition of the guide in 2004, to recognise the best new openings in various categories. To mark the 25th anniversary edition, the new style for the Eating & Drinking Awards provides a single, exclusive list of eight recipients of an annual award. 'We wanted to highlight the exciting and essential places of the past 12 months,' explains guide editor Jay Thundercliffe. 'These can appear across all different styles of the food and drink scene, from fine dining to cafés or street food – and often the distinction between these categories can start to blur. We wanted to recognise where fresh thinking, innovation, originality and quality was happening right across the local eating and drinking scene.'

After opening only six months ago in November 2017 we were absolutely thrilled to be one of the four winners alongside some fantastic Edinburgh restaurants. It’s humbling to be recognised after such a short time however it’s equally rewarding & a clear sign that the hard work by the staff is paying off. Our aim has always been to showcase the best of British seafood & shellfish. Fresh lobster, hand dived scallops, monkfish, king crab legs & grilled octopus area few stand out small plates, enjoyed before the main event of cold & hot seafood platters. Our impressive food menu is accompanied by an excellent bar offering of wines from around the world, bespoke cocktails & craft beers.

Freshly oysters are a real focus here at White Horse & we are keen for people to enjoy them as much as possible. Our Buck-A-Shuck oyster happy hour is a great way to do so if you’re an oyster pro or never tried one before & keen to do so. For more information on our weekly events & offers visit here.

If you haven’t already visited be sure to do so & enjoy our award winning seafood.
