The Lioness of Leith

21-25 Duke St, Leith, Edinburgh EH6 8HH, UK


In the shell of a derelict pub with a dark history in the heart of Leith, Edinburgh, ‘The Lioness of Leith’ opened as a bar/bistro in December 2013. ‘Burger Mama’ was born in early February 2018 out of the passion to deliver a real ‘gourmet’ burger menu to the locals of Leith. WHY ARE WE GOURMET? Our beef and chicken are sourced from the award winning local butcher, Findlay’s of Portobello. Our artisan buns are sourced and baked within a few hundred yards. We have a real passion to cater for our meat eating, vegetarian and vegan diners alike. To compliment our menu we offer premium local and international drinks. With our inventive and evolving, seasonal, cocktails list, including innovative alcohol-free options, award winning teas and coffee, you can be sure of quality, great taste – and local sourcing whenever possible. Our main menu is available from 4pm Monday – Thursday, and from NOON Friday – Sunday. We won Ion Magazine’s “Leith’s Best Bar” in September 2014 and strive to be a favourite whether you’re a local or a visitor. A ramp is available on request for wheelchair access.
