Whether you've a toddler, baby or teenager, these bars offer a host of fun, child-friendly options that will keep the kids - no matter what age - entertained.
The Sheep’s Heid Inn professes to be the city’s oldest pub. Serving up a menu of traditional favourites and modern creations, the Inn also has a dedicated kids' menu that includes dishes such as British beef sliders, battered cod goujons and cumberland sausage and mashed potato.
Smaller portions of their Sunday roast are also available for children.
But it is the old-school skittle alley that will keep children (big and small) entertained for hours.
Or if the sun is shining, why not take the kids and head out to the hidden courtyard?
The Swedes know how to do things right; Swedish-inspired bar Akva has not one but two kids corners full of toys, games and a ping pong table to keep the children entertained whilst you enjoy a drink.
It’s great for brunch and lunch too and has a dedicated kids menu.
Already a firm favourite with the Stockbridge foodie crowd, Scran & Scallie offers a sample of the gastropub portfolio of its owners in a more family-friendly setting.
Owned by Michelin starred pair Tom Kitchin and Dominic Jack- the brains behind The Kitchin and The Castle Terrace Restaurant – Scran & Scallie has a soundproofed children’s play area more suited to younger kids, while the children’s menu takes inspiration from the more grown-up versions of its owners restaurant offering.
Being Stockbridge, the menu is a little bit on the pricey side, but given the background of the two chefs, diners of all ages can be assured they’re getting the best.
This quirky family-run pub down by The Shore is sure to amaze kids with their endless supply of vintage hats and Mad Hatters-esque decor.
Kids are welcome in the lively bar area until 5pm, or grab a table through in the quieter back room for dinner and drinks with the little ones up until 10pm.
This distinctly Scandinavian bistro close to both Dynamic Earth and Arthur’s Seat attracts a regular crowd of young families with an enticing menu and bright, welcoming Swedish hospitality.
Parents are able to relax and enjoy a cup of coffee, or something a little bit stronger, in the bar itself, while children amuse themselves with a seemingly bottomless box of toys and dedicate play area.
An extensive kids menu, featuring a number of healthier options including several veggie dishes, is extensive and the portions are more like scaled down versions of the grown up offerings, so kids are unlikely to go hungry.
If you're going away for the weekend, or fancy a day out of the city then kids will love lunch at the Nether Bay Hotel in North Berwick.
The hotel bar is home to a tank of lobsters, which are all freshly caught in creels in and around North Berwick by local fishermen.
Or if the weather is nice, families can enjoy an al fresco meal at the Lobster Shack down at the harbour.
