Square Meal Review of The Dogs ?

Having run the estimable fitz(Henry) in Leith & the ambitious Rogue on Morrison Street, restaurateur Dave Ramsden has finally found his groove. Located on the first floor of a New Town premises, The Dogs is a far simpler proposition than his previous establishments: old-style British cooking with the majority of starters & puds under a fiver, most mains less than a tenner & the vast majority of wines below £20. Tables are squeezed dangerously together, while the most obvious design concession is a massive picture of a dog’s head behind the bar; when full, the decibel levels rise. Most people seem content with straightforward dishes such as lamb rissoles with garlic mayo or chicken liver pâté to start, spiced honey-glazed pork belly or braised rabbit with bacon & cider as a main, then jam sponge pudding with ice cream for afters. It’s cheap, cheerful & quietly hip – just don’t expect precision cuisine. Amore Dogs & The Seadogs are part of the same stable.

A high-ceilinged period building, slightly worn around the edges, if The Dogs was in London it would most almost certainly to be found in Shoreditch. We sunk into our window seat and ordered a carafe of Brise de France Merlot £12.95 whilst I willed my stomach to feel a hunger pang. Just four hours earlier we’d had a heavier than planned lunch at The Scran & Scallie despite walking around Edinburgh in between meals I was still stuffed, The Dogs deserved more than this...
