Champany Inn - The Chop and Ale House

Renowned inn with an award-winning cellar

At a glance

AA Pick of the Pubs

Restaurant menu

Spread across a collection of buildings, some dating from the 16th century, Champany Corner is within striking distance of Edinburgh. A talking point in the luxurious bar is a rock pond where oysters and lobsters fresh from the Western Isles take in their new surroundings, while you, glass of St Mungos, Thistly Cross farmhouse cider from Dunbar, or perhaps own-label South African wine in hand, take in the menu. Entirely separate from the restaurant in a former bar is the Chop and Ale House, where starters include marinated herring fillets with crème fraîche; and home-smoked chorizo with apricot and mango chutney. Although the inn is big on Aberdeen Angus steaks and burgers, there's plenty more choice, including best-end-of-neck lamb chops; North Sea cod in home-made batter with 'man-sized' chips; and charcoal-grilled peri-peri chicken. For pudding, hot malted waffles are served with maple syrup and whipped cream; and rich chocolate tart is sprinkled with praline.
