A warm welcome awaits you

A warm welcome to the Balerno Inn

Provenance, Innovation & Quality

The Balerno Inn is a family owned and operated business that opened in November 2019. Our stunningly refurbished property is smack bang in the middle of Balerno’s historic high street.

We offer all day dining and our chefs produce a whole spectrum of spectacularly fresh dishes from classic pub fare to sophisticated bistro style daily specials. Our menu is driven by quality, provenance and great value for the entire family.

In addition, we offer five luxuriously appointed bedrooms, all with en-suites, that will make your stay truly unforgettable.

We are here to serve you. Whether you want a nice, cosy meal or you need to re-energise after a strenuous walk in the Pentlands – why not bring the family and stay awhile?. Oh, the family dug is always welcome as are muddy boots and walking gear.

Always Fresh. Always Good.

We offer incredibly fresh and delicious food all day. Morning baking, relaxed lunch, bar snacks and evening dining – everything cooked fresh in house by Chef Andy and his team.


We serve from:

Monday – Saturday 10:00am – 9:00pm

Sunday 10:00 am – 8:30pm

Bairns just want to have fun

The bairns like to eat, but they LOVE to play even more. We’ve designed our space with the kids in mind, offering a play area that is safe and secure. You can relax and keep a watchful eye out whilst the wee ones go and have a ball in the enclosed play area.
