As the name suggests The Wee Restaurant is a small restaurant, perfect for intimate and corporate Festive celebrations. The delicious Festive menus are available from the start of December.
The restaurant had a busy start to 2009, opening ‘The Study’, extending the restaurant’s covers from 24 to 34. Established in March 2006, The Wee Restaurant is family owned, run by Craig and Vikki Wood. Their ethos is to serve simple good seasonal food with fine wines, in a truly relaxed atmosphere.
The restaurant setting is idyllic and definitely worth the short train journey from Edinburgh or from further afield. Customers can enjoy a delicious meal, cooked by Craig, followed by a wander round the charming harbour village of North Queensferry, soaking up the breath-taking views of the Forth Road and Rail Bridges.
It has also been dubbed as the ‘Best Eating Place in Scotland’ by the Independent Magazine’s restaurant critics.
Craig Wood made his reputation as the head chef of The Hallion Club and formerly worked for Restaurant Martin Wishart and Charlie Trotters in Chicago. His wife, Vikki, works part-time front of house alongside Jim Gallagher, Restaurant Manager.
The Restaurant can also be booked for Private Functions and holds popular Wee Restaurant Wine Tasting Evenings. For further details of the next Wine Tasting Evenings, or to book a table please call 01383 616263.
The Festive lunch menu is available from the 1st – 24th December 2009 for the reasonable price of £14.75 for two courses, £18.50 for three courses. Alternatively enjoy a two course dinner for £24 or a three course dinner from £30.
The Wee Restaurant’s Hogmany Gourmet 4 course Dinner is available from £50 per head (6-8pm) or £70 per head (8.30 till Late). Both sittings are very popular. The sitting from 6-8pm is perfect for those with plans later in the evening whilst the sitting at 8.30pm is fabulous and very sociable. After a four course meal, count down "The Bells" then The Wee Restaurant Staff join our guests with Champagne, or Whisky for the more traditional.
