Our popular 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 from one of Britain’s leading brewers of real ale.
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 or sample our selection of real ales in our atmospheric public bar beside a roaring fire or in our cosy lounge bar. Well-behaved dogs are allowed in both locations. Only Guide Dogs are allowed in our restaurant.
We are also child friendly in the lounge bar.
Sports fans can enjoy major football, rugby (Six Nations) and golf events on our big screen in the lounge bar.
The Grey Horse Inn offers a high-quality selection of food and drink from our location at the heart of Balerno. We are dog-friendly in the public and lounge bar and guests can order and enjoy our food in either location. Only Guide Dogs are allowed in the restaurant.
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.
And we look forward to welcoming you to the Grey Horse.

Fantastic evening meal tonight. Menu had a really good selection of dishes.we had starter of Cullen skink which was a wee bit different from ones I have had before.this one was one was very smooth with no lumps of fish which did not affect the delicious taste.main meal was smoked haddock which was lovely served with mashed tatties with mustard thro it, yummy. Wine is not overpriced with a good selection. Great atmosphere with very friendly staff. It has only been open a few weeks and everyone is still learning things but I cannot recommend this place enough. Well done everyone at The Grey Horse.
This is the place to have a beer after a bicycle ride!
The Grey Horse Inn has recently been renovated and they’ve added a restaurant. We enjoyed a lovely meal there at a very reasonable price. The service was attentive and the food was excellent.
Went for a walk round Thriepmuir Reservoir then stopped in for a pint or two of real ale and some vino. Was made to feel very welcome and a Rio our dog made herself at home with the resident pub dog Sukki. Lovely way to spend lunchtime.
Really great pub, great staff especially a guy called Ian and the manager. The best ale pub in the area
I have been to this establishment several times before but this time I got the surprise of my life,the place has undergone a major refurb.The interior is stylish warm and well served by the owners wife and staff.The chef apparently worked as a chef in one of Donald Trumps venues over here and my goodness what a find.The food was first class,well ptesented and from a well thought out menu which had something for everyone.the burgers which three of us had were hand made and absolutely delicious.the wife had the haddock and hand cut chips which looked and tasted great.There was also a good selection of real ales and other more known brands.This is a place which will sell itself through quality food ,a welcoming atmosphere and good ale.The menus from what I can gather will be changed regularly and that will keep it interesting on a food level whilst the varieties of beers they bring in will suit those like myself who love real ales.In conclusion the number of customers they are getting speaks volumes,this will be a very trendy place to go so I would advise booking to avoid disappointment,you will notbe disappointed!
A quintessential burger,definitely home made; one of the largest burgers that I have had the pleasure of tasting Lovely decor,nice ambience will definitely be back.
The recent refurbishment and up-grade has meant the new-look Grey Horse can call itself a gastro-pub. The food was superb, the ambience is really cool and it still feels like the old Grey Horse as it retains the old charm but is pretty swanky. I had the veggie option which was superb. All the real ales served in the pub are available in the restaurant and there is a good wine list. I feel it’s going to become a regular haunt.
Great pub, very friendly and handy for walks in Pentlands.
The pub is a real gem. I dropped in with a small group of friends after a walk in the Pentlands one winter afternoon. The small and cosy public bar has a warm coal fire at one end with a couple of tiny inglenook seats, a collection of other comfy tables and chairs and a long bar. We were welcomed by a cheerful landlord who proudly told us about a variety of real cask conditioned ales from local craft breweries, along with a selection of more conventional drinks and a fine selection of whiskies and gins. Undecided which to try, he then offered us a taster ‘on the house’ to help us make our minds up before selling us several fine, well-looked after pints of super local ale.
