Review on King's Wark
One of Edinburgh's oldest and most atmospheric pubs, the King's Wark was a famous old smuggler's haunt, served as a plague hospital and - in earlier times - was even the private armoury belonging to James I for a while.
Everything is above board these days, although the interior still oozes history with its wood-panelled walls and sturdy furniture. Breakfast and brunch are big attractions and the pub is also famed for its seafood: the choice is a big one, running from moules marinière, through haddock and chips or cod with smoked paprika, Feta and almond pesto to exotica like sea bream and red snapper.
On the meat front, expect things like medallions of venison with artichoke mousse and raspberry coulis or duck breast with lentils and a sherry dressing, while desserts could feature chocolate pot laced with Cointreau. To go with the food there are cask ales, malt whiskies and some gluggable wines.
