SquareMeal Review of
The Mercat Bar & Restaurant
Handily placed just a few minutes’ walk from Edinburgh’s Haymarket station, and a great favourite with rugby fans, The Mercat does its duty by offering reasonably priced food and drink for the
assembled crowds who pack into its big, low-ceilinged spaces. If you’re peckish, the kitchen can oblige with snacks of haggis dumplings, bruschetta nachos and potato wedges, while those with
greater hunger pangs might prefer one of the house burgers, steak and Guinness pie, fishcakes, macaroni cheese or Balmoral chicken with whisky and onion sauce. And everything on the menu is at 2007
prices! There are plenty of beers, lagers and spirits on offer (as well as teas and coffee), and the wine list is also worth a look.
