Stac Polly

Restaurants, Bistros Old Town

A pioneer outpost in Scottish cooking, Stac Polly stays true to its heritage with intriguing signature twists on the traditional haggis dinner

There are two Stac Polly venues in Edinburgh: a more formal restaurant in Dublin Street – see website for details – and this bistro in St Mary's Street. The business has a long history in the city and goes back over 20 years at which point it was a real outpost of Scottish cooking. These days the bistro remains true to its heritage with Scottish ingredients prominent on the menu including haggis. As a starter you could have haggis bonbons with plum and coriander chutney on the side; for a main there is Burns Night-style haggis, neeps and tatties – haggis in traditional or vegetarian versions with mashed swede and mashed potato. It's a Scottish classic.
