The Grey Horse

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.

Food and drink

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.

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.

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.
