The Grey Horse

Our award-winning gastro pub is at the heart of Balerno in South-West Edinburgh and is known locally as Brow’s after its formidable, longest-standing and well-respected landlady, Mrs Anne Brow.

We are on the No 44 bus route and The Grey Horse is an ideal stopping off point for a bar snack, meal or a refreshing pint.

Our customers are drawn from throughout Central Scotland and include walkers in the nearby Pentland Hills or along the popular Water of Leith, plus cyclists and fishermen who enjoy their sport at Harlaw and Threipmuir reservoirs above Balerno.

Enjoy our home-made food, sample our selection of real ales or relax in our lounge bar or beside our roaring fire in the atmospheric public bar where dogs are allowed.

We are child friendly in the lounge bar and you will always find a warm welcome at The Grey Horse.

Food and drink

The Grey Horse Inn offers a high-quality selection of food and drink from our location at the heart of Balerno.

Landlords Paul and Jane

The Grey Horse is not just our business it is our home. We moved here around a decade ago and now feel an integral part of the community. Simply, we love it here.

Jane and I pride ourselves on providing our guests with a quality range of refreshments and meals 

And we look forward to welcoming you to the Grey Horse.
