A big thank you to @Edinburgers for their great review of Donalds Bistro,  @Duckskilspindie in Aberlady, East Lothian! Great bloggers and reviewers! Make sure you read their review of Donalds and check out their site about other Edinburgh restaurants!  #greatfoodeastlothian #greatrestaurants

The EdinburgersWe found Kilspindie House just at the start of the village and parked in the handy car park at the rear. We were greeted with a warm welcome and shown to our seats in the bistro. Kilspindie House has a nice traditional feel to it which fits in well with it’s location and they also offer overnight rooms if you have had one too many from the excellent cocktail menu (good work Alan).

Once seated Miss Edinburger was straight to work on the cocktail list as I had inexplicably offered to be on driving duty. We were then greeted by a familiar face, Alan Walker (mentioned above) of Rascals fame. Alan talked us through the new cocktail menu and even kindly offered to make me an alcohol free “mocktail” which to be honest I didn’t know was a thing. Miss Edinburger went for the Gin Smash, an excellent choice, and I ended up opting for a small glass of red.

We were both very impressed with the food menu and had a difficult time choosing our dishes. To start I went for the Wild Pigeon Breast, seasonal berries, granola, spinach. As a pigeon virgin I thought this was an ideal opportunity to try it out rather than opting for my standard Cullen Skink which was also on offer. It ended up being a good choice, the pigeon breast was delicious, it had a very pork spare rib type taste and the berries and granola  worked amazingly well with it. I’ll be honest and say I don’t know how pigeon is usually served and the granola seemed like an odd choice to me initially but I was certainly proved wrong as it was very tasty.

    Sitting in the bistro at Duck’s relishing the new menu. Started with a lovely creamy Jerusalem artichoke soup, toasted artichoke on a spot of chestnut purée served in a light white soup. Followed by perfect venison, red and tender served on salsify purée with wild chanterelle and a light sauce. The potato mash was the creamiest I have had in a while with a hint of nutmeg. We had space for dessert so I went for a creme caramel – excellent. The new chef Paulo has previously worked in a Michelin … Testimonial 1
