Date Night at The Sun Inn (Midlothian)
Last night hubby and I went to our new favourite local, The Sun Inn. Nestled away on the A7 at Lothian Bridge the Sun Inn is a cosy and welcoming place to visit. The award-winning restaurant really does live up to its reputation - the food is excellent and the staff are great.
It was a freezing cold night and we were sat in front of a cosy log fire. Last time we visited we both had starters and were stuffed so we decided to share a starter this time (to leave room for pudding really!) and the choice was an easy one for us. A "bucket o Brie" - yes please! Beautifully presented in a little flower pot with fresh salad and a punchy redcurrent sauce, it was delicious - light crisp batter with golden gooey melted yummy-ness inside.
It didn't take us long to devour! Next up, our main courses. Hubby opted for the curried lamb with puréed squash and I went for the chicken with Ayrshire ham and polenta. The lamb was devine - beautiful flavour and melt in the mouth. My chicken was tender and tasty.
The dessert menu spoilt us for choice which includes a soufflé of the day. I went for a vanilla pod and honeycomb cheesecake with candied figs and hubby went for the classic sticky toffee pudding. We weren't disappointed!
With a little surprise at the bottom...
All washed down with a nice Pinot Noir, we walked home full and happy! Definitely our new favourite place and fab that its within walking distance for us. And Paige slept like a little angel for granny and grandad - phew!
