SquareMeal Review of The Wee Restaurant North Queensferry

Located under the rumble of the Forth Bridge, chef/patron Craig Wood’s pint-sized restaurant manages to cram almost 30 diners into its quaint little whitewashed and candlelit dining room. Wood is an accomplished operator who has built his food around top-notch Scottish ingredients, although he isn’t afraid to jazz up his dishes with flavours from further afield. The results show a simple touch, but also plenty of virtuosity – from light and breezy salmon, crab and wasabi fishcake with fennel salad and coriander salsa, or smoked chicken and black trompette terrine with sauce gribiche, to confit rabbit leg with pancetta and a risotto of peas, broad beans, Glamis white asparagus and basil pesto. Keenly priced set menus and a list of affordable wines make a trip out to the village of North Queensferry well worth the effort.

As the name suggests this is indeed a ‘wee’ restaurant, so it is a little cramped in the 20 seater living room sized restaurant. In a lovely location just beneath the Forth rail bridge close to the banks of the Firth. The friendly and efficient service was very good, as was the food. I started with a French onion soup, which was very tasty but the crouton and cheese being on the side was a little odd. The mains were a smoked haddock on garlic mash with spaghetti leeks and a poached egg on top, which was very good and tasty, as was the rib eye angus, great taste and well cooked. To finish we had chocolate fondant and a white mouse, both deliciously decadent, although the fondant was a touch over cooked. Admittedly I was driving so we only had 3 glasses of wine between us, but at around £85 including tip and coffes, it was very good value. For a local restaurant it is certainly worth the visit if you are in the Edinburgh/ Fife area. I’ll be going back next time I am up that way.
