The Grey Horse Inn is a community inn and gastro pub restaurant situated at the heart of Balerno village in South-West Edinburgh. With a long history in the area, the Grey Horse is still known to many locals as ‘Brow’s’ after its longest standing landlady.
The Grey Horse Inn offers a high-quality selection of food and drink from our location at the heart of Balerno.
The Grey Horse is our home and we feel an integral part of the Balerno Community. We are fortunate to be located in such a beautiful village, with nearby access to the Pentland Hills and Edinburgh. We love it here, as does our resident pub dog Suki.
We pride ourselves on providing our guests with a quality range of refreshments and meals. Whether you are visiting for a quiet pint by the fire in the public bar, a three-course meal in our gastro pub restaurant, or a casual drink in the beer garden on a warm summer’s day, you are sure to have a great experience.
We can’t wait to welcome you to the Grey Horse Inn. Paul, Jane & Suki NJ

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.
Seriously the best real ale pub in Edinburgh and a fantastic restaurant along side! Couldn’t recommend a place more highly! The best!
Recent refurb and upgrade has meant the new-look ‘Grey Horse’ can call itself a ‘gastro-pub’. Food was superb, the ambience is really cool, it still feels like the old Grey Horse, and retains the older buildings charm, but is really pretty ‘swanky’. Being veggie had the veggie option which was, quite simply, superb. All the ales of the pub available in the restaurant, and good wine list. I feel it’s going to become a regular haunt, and well worth a trip to eat at. Fabby.
Really great pub, great staff especially a guy called Ian and the manager. The best ale pub in the area
This is the place to have a beer after a bicycle ride!
Delicious food, friendly service and very reasonable. Went the extra mile with my 4 year old son. Thanks for a lovely evening. We look forward to eating here again!
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.
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.
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.
