"The Canny Man's in Morningside is an Edinburgh institution established in 1871 and passed down through 5 generations of the Kerr family. As famous chef Rick Stein said 'The Canny Man's is the best pub in the world.'
The establishment is well known far and wide for it’s quirky nature and ‘never’ changing décor. The interior sees every nook and cranny filled with everything from moose heads to muskets, sheet music to stuffed animals. A genuinely one of a kind bar and restaurant. The restaurant specialises in the best Scottish produce with a strong focus on local suppliers. Alongside this they have a well stocked gantry of over a 200 malt whiskies and a large wine list. The Canny Man's is very much a unique experience in Edinburgh and not to be missed."

    The food was excellent as was the service, but it was rather noisy as we were sitting next to where the empty plates are dealt with. Otherwise we had a really good evening, with very good service.

    It was an amazing experience! The perfect Scotsman’s pub!!! We liked it so much we are going back tonight! The staff is fabulous, friendly and so generous. We met some regulars who were also celebrating their anniversary and had a lovely visit.
