Antiques Dealers and Stores

Georgian Antiques

10 Pattison St, Edinburgh EH6 7HF, UK – 0131 553 7286

An amazing multiple-level shop of antiques that could take hours to wander. A rare treasure trove.

An amazing four floors stuffed full of good quality, high end antiques. It is mostly furniture but there are loads of other stuff as well.

George Pirie Antiques

22 Howe St, Edinburgh EH3 6TG, UK – 0131 226 4800

I happened upon this place with my daughter and spent a very relaxed half an hour or more exploring. There's a really good mix of stuff over 3 floors and although I'm no expert, a lot of the prices seemed reasonable. The guy who was in attendance was very helpful and knowledgeable. Well worth a visit in my opinion - we'll be back!

Lovely antique shop with eclectic selection of interesting merchandise. Found a lovely Victorian ring for a good price. Would happy return and browse again!

Cavanagh D L

49 Cockburn St, Edinburgh EH1 1BS, UK – 0131 226 3391

Just stumbled across this little shop. It is a very tiny antique shop with lots of interesting things (at very reasonable prices). The couple who were running the shop were really friendly and kind. We loved having a chat with them. From Joe of York and Nelli of Finland!!!

Very tiny shop. Only around 4 adults will fit in here at a time. They have a good selection of smaller-type antiques and some cool military items. The staff was very friendly and the prices decent too.

Beauty Salons

Ishi Salon

4 Roseneath St, Edinburgh EH9 1JH, UK – 0131 229 4111

Went in this week for a keratin treatment with Lyndsey. She was SO wonderful and had me feeling pampered and beautiful. The gal who washed my hair was also super friendly and gave me a really nice head massage! My hair feels soft and looks really healthy - couldn’t be more pleased.

Haven't actually had my hair done here but thr staff were extremely kind and that small act of kindness made a huge difference so i can only imagine how great they would make you feel about your hair. Lovely salon in a beautiful park of Edinburgh and very reasonably priced by what i saw. Thank you again x

Macintyre's Hair & Beauty

66-68 Thistle St, Edinburgh EH2 1EN, UK – 0131 220 1737

I got my hair cut on Saturday and I had a great experience. First of all, I called really last minute to get an appointment and explained that I’d be coming on my lunch break from work, I was given an appointment straight away and the man on the phone was very friendly and helpful. When I arrived Amy (who also cut my hair) took my coat straight away and offered me a drink. The decor is lovely, the atmosphere is great and all of the members of staff were smiley and inviting. Just what you want when you go to a salon! Amy made a fantastic job of cutting my hair and she done exactly what I asked for. I will definitely be back, I highly recommend this place.

My daughter and I had our hair cut by Amy. All the staff were lovely and friendly, making us feel very welcome. The service was good quality and an excellent price. Will definitely be back!

Holly Blue Nail & Beauty Salon

5 Church Hill Pl, Edinburgh EH10 4BE, UK – 0131 447 1665

Holly Blue Nail & Beauty Salon is a fantastic place to go for manicures, pedicures and an assortment of other beauty procedures. I've been going regularly now for a few years and I have nothing praise for both the staff and the treatments. The salon is very well kept and has a lovely atmosphere. The staff are all very well trained in all aspects of the treatments they perform and they are all very friendly & welcoming to their clients. I really can't rate them highly enough, so go and try the salon for yourself, you won't be disappointed.

Holly Blue is a fantastic place for manicures and pedicures - and many other beauty treatments. I have been a regular client now for several years and I can't rate the service highly enough. The staff are all excellent and very professional. The nail treatments, which I have done every 2 - 3 weeks, are always perfect. I seriously haven't got a bad word to say about Gemma & her team at Holly Blue. Don't take my word for it though - treat yourself to a pamper and try them out for yourself.

Bookshops and bookstores

Local bookshops for new books, rare and secondhand books in EH8


McNaughtan's Bookshop & Gallery

3a-4a Haddington Pl, Edinburgh EH7 4AE, UK – 0131 556 5897

Wonderful book store, we were living close by and went here three times, each time greeted warmly with free offers like white wine in the evening, tea when it was raining outside and good company. Also neighbour to a really great antique book store. Truly felt like home. If I'm ever in Edinburgh again I'll definitely return. As a wise man once said: "This do in remembrance of me".

It's a very nice little store, perfect for book worms and old fashioned writers (the writing machines were really inspiring!) I loved the very warm welcome, it's not just another store, it's a nice place to go. You can sit in different spots with different atmosphere to read or just enjoy a chat. I saw gorgeous editions and interesting books. Definitively in my to do list next time I'm in Edinburgh !

Blackwells Bookshop

53-62 South Bridge, Edinburgh EH1 1YS, UK – 0131 622 8222

I absolutely love this bookshop. The selection of non-fiction is the best I've come across outside London and the staff are fantastic. It's great that there is a place to get a coffee and sit for a few hours on comfy couches and read a big bunch of maths and physics textbooks.

U can buy good quality books here an puzzles plus jigsaw games any other things as well

Amnesty Bookshop Edinburgh

12 Roseneath St, Marchmont, Edinburgh EH9 1JH, UK – 0131 221 1596

Good to have it but can be oddly pricey. If you want to give money just give it. Some bargains though.

Great charity bookstore that looks a whole lot like a "real" upmarket bookstore 😎 Great selection and all for a be worthy cause.

Car Accessories -

Pilrig Motors

328 Leith Walk, Edinburgh EH6 5BU, UK – 0131 554 1034

Nice place to buy fluids and basic parts. Staff are really helpful. It looks closed from the outside but don't be put off.

Quick, knowledgeable guys and clean. Always will recommend them.

Pentland Component Parts Ltd

41 St Clair St, Edinburgh EH6 8LB, UK – 0131 656 9900

Great service from this local family business. Needed some brake pads and oil for my van. Didn't need to order or wait just popped into their depot on Leith and picked up the parts. Great service at an affordable price.

Always used pentland from way back, usually the old veiwforth branch but over the years I've always had good service at pentland.

Tyre & Battery Depot

91 Lauriston Pl, Edinburgh EH3 9JB, UK – 0131 229 3410

Great tyre shop (and batteries) right in the middle of Edinburgh. Great price for tyres - had mine done today and bought a battery a few weeks ago. Excellent service. Very convenient if you live centrally or even if you just need things done it you're in the city.

John's fantastic, the only place I get my tyres. It's good to keep small business open like this. John's just as well priced as the major brands and you get a one 2 one service instead of just an in and out. Plus you get to help the wee businesses not just throw more money to the big brands. Same tyres, same if not better price and much better service!

Car Alarms and Security -

Auto Installs

75A Restalrig Rd S, Edinburgh EH7 6LE, UK – 0131 661 0946

Work done to a great standard. Had wiring/auxiliary lights and reverse sensors fitted. Its a shame the place is so far away from me as I'd have something every other month for Sean to do. As with everything, I had a cheap Chinese product and it failed which is nobody's fault but my own. Will be taking my car there to get the ECU taken out and remapped also.

I asked for an upgrade for the system in my van. Excellent result and for a great price too. Definitely will use again in the future.

Home Secure Scotland

65 Mayfield Rd, Edinburgh EH9 3AA, UK – 07960 404581

Came out really quickly and did the job well. V pleased.

superb and friendly service, quick response from call to job done. highly recommended

SRS Autoparts

Bonnington Rd, Edinburgh EH6 5PY, UK – 0131 554 5559

cheap parts friendly staff. great service. no need to be in the trade better than eurocarparts

Cheap for parts good knowledge well stocked

Car Audio Equipment

Sound and Vision Technical Services

Leith Walk, Edinburgh EH6 5BX, UK – 0131 553 2126

Absolutely stellar service. I rang up to arrange to bring my elderly television in, and when I described the problem, Paul told me what the issue was likely to be, and what it would be likely to cost to put right. When I brought it in, he looked at it for less than a minute, saw that it was in 'deep standby', turned it on for me, explained what had happened and why, and refused to take any payment. He also offered me a free second-hand remote control. I chose to bring my telly there because of the brilliant reviews he had received, and he definitely deserves every one of those positive reviews. Although there was nothing actually wrong with my telly, it's not something I could have done myself, and I would have been perfectly happy to pay him for his expertise, but he wouldn't take anything. I'm completely delighted, and recommend him wholeheartedly. He clearly knows his stuff and it's fantastic to find someone who could have taken the telly in and charged a lot of money, but didn't. I'd give him ten stars if I could.

Always friendly, helpful and extremely competent. Have used them on several occasions. Highly recommended!

The Warehouse Sound Services Ltd

23 Water St, Edinburgh EH6 6SU, UK – 0131 555 6900

Great coffee and chat

It's great

Bose Repair Experts

284 Leith Walk, Edinburgh EH6 5BX, UK – 0131 463 2126

Great company. Was like a gold mine finding this place. Had a water damaged amp on my Audi b8 b&o system.This lot sorted my amp to brand new condition can’t fault them at all. Great prices and great service 5* guys. I’m from greenock so I posted my amp up and they sorted it and posted it back in no time 5 ***** again. Thanks a lot all use at Bose expert repair 👌🏼

Absolutely fantastic service from start to finish Thank you Chris My Audi TT Bose amplifier was suffering from various sound issues and Chris promptly sorted all. Excellent support on the phone, fast communication by email and a speedy first class service on the Bose amplifier. I can't rate this company enough and HIGHLY recommend to anyone. Very satisfied customer

Car Dealers

Evans Halshaw Ford Edinburgh

15 Baileyfield Rd, Edinburgh EH15 1BT, UK – 0131 669 6261

This is the second time I have used Evans Halshaw within two years and I have to say to say they gave me great service both times and went above and beyond their duty this time round when I bought a new car outright instead of leasing and I have no hesitation in genuinely giving them 5 stars. I have always owned Fords and had experienced dealerships up and down the country and many do not warrant the Ford name. Well done and a huge thank you to both Mark and Joanna at Evans Halshaw because not only did they gain my business from a close competitor they will keep me as a loyal customer once again.

Fantastic service start to finish when buying me new car. Really friendly staff and kept me up to date throughout the week waiting time. Sales team were really helpful with fitting around my budget.

Arnold Clark Edinburgh Seafield Motorstore

38 Seafield Rd E, Edinburgh EH15 1ED, UK – 0131 549 9790

I’ve had some problems with the car since I got it, I’ve had to run about a bit partly due to working from home. However in terms of the sale and eventual fixes to issues which to be honest are crucial they have all been sorted and agreed. Cant fault that. Only issue is in aftersales and taking ownership of issues to make it easier for the customer hence 4/5. Although I can’t fault the integrity of the sales side.

I only bought my new car today and from start to finish the whole experience has been first class William Welsh was great he answered all my questions arranged a test drive there and then sorted my finance called me when he said he would and made sure I was happy. I have no reason to believe there will be any problems but I feel confident if there was will would sort it I know I’m going to enjoy my new car


Summerside Pl, Edinburgh EH6 4PA, UK – 07518 984863

Just bought an A3 s-line from Mandi... cars immaculate inside and out especially for having done 92000 miles. Was very helpful in getting the process through. I would likely go back when done with this one and looking for next car.

Nice place, very professional.

Filling Stations

Ferry Road Filling Station

77-87 Ferry Rd, Edinburgh EH6 4AQ, UK – 0131 553 5996

Unfriendly staff. Very convenient

pretty convenient petrol station if you are around the north end of edinburgh


Barclay Pl, Edinburgh EH10 4DG, UK – 0131 228 4246

They have a wash station, air for Tyrese, are open at night, and offer package drop off. All good.

Friendly staff and great service. 24 hours open so very convenient for night out folks. Nice hot dog and samosas served here.


Ratcliffe Terrace, Edinburgh EH9 1SS, UK – 0131 668 4090

Subway and shop macdonalds next door. Can be a nightmare getting out during rush hour

Well what can I say its a petrol station. Drive in fuel vehicle, pay and go.

Fuel 24 Hour


7 Seafield Rd, Edinburgh EH6 7LE, UK – 0131 553 8958

Fuel usually a couple of pence more expensive than the supermarkets. A pain to exit if you are turning right, towards salamander street

This place sells petrol and diesel. You can wash your car here too and fill your tyres with air. Amazing you can find all these things in one location. If you're peckish the also have a variety of overpriced sandwiches.


23 Canonmills, Edinburgh EH3 5HA, UK – 0131 557 0556

A truly splendid and magnificent place to stop off if you find that your motor-car is in need of a topping-up with fuel. These delightful people will be only too happy to help, and indeed, you are invited to dispense the petrol or diesel from pump to car by your own fair hand and at your discretion, putting in as much or as little as you yourself may deem necessary

Pricey petrol, but they have a wee M&S here which is great for last-minute quick dinners.

Jet Garage; T.C. Juner & Son

126-128 Restalrig Rd, Abbeyhill, Edinburgh EH7 6UW, UK – 0131 467 7141

Friendly staff good selection in store

My favourite local friendly petrol station

Motorcycle and Scooters

Two Wheels

36 Peffermill Rd, Edinburgh EH16 5LL, UK – 0131 667 7305

Great at sales for any bike with Neil and David, but aftercare and customer service is becoming more satisfactory, customer satisfaction becoming more of a priority. I would recommend the Glasgow Triumph centre over the Edinburgh site. But the Honda guys definitely have it good at Edinburgh.

Nice guys, had a mixed service experience a few years back but sales team made up for it. Ask Neil about his vintage collection. Need to keep innovating though to keep up with the rest in town such as BMW and Saltire. Love Honda though and David is always Ace

Mark 1 Motorcycles

8 Montgomery St Ln, Edinburgh EH7 5JT, UK – 0131 557 2490

A good man. Knows his stuff. Not overpriced either. Recommended!

Top mechanic, and very nice guy. Honest and fair. Did a great job servicing my bike. Really fast turn around too. Will definitely be going back.

Edinburgh Triumph

36 Peffermill Rd, Edinburgh EH16 5LL, UK – 0131 668 4775

Needed a clutch lever for my wife's street triple, they had one in stock. Very nice chat on the phone and booked it to my name, and it was sitting waiting for me when I arrived. Great place great staff would go back again.

The Edinburgh Triumph dealer, attached to Two Wheels, so a good sized dealership with a great staff, sales, service and accessories. Bikes are nice too....

Nice shop well stocked nice friendly staff

Fantastic shop very clean and well laid out with lots of really good items pricing is very good. Staff are all very nice and friendly

Great selection of products. You can also find natural beauty products. Really nice shop.


29-31 Deanhaugh St, Edinburgh EH4 1LR, UK – 0131 343 1771

This is a great little store. very thoughtfully presented in more of a boutique style than some of the other charity shops in town. Staff are always lovely and helpful. Just got a great pair of Zara jeans for £7 last time I was in. Well worth a look anytime you're in Stockbridge

Scored a pair of binoculars for £7 in here once. Bargain!

Great shop. The woman who runs it knows her stuff and was very helpful. I was buying shoes for my son.

Great service, nice range of shoes and very helpful staff who understand kids. Hairdressers are also great

Bon Tot

46 St Stephen St, Edinburgh EH3 5AL, UK – 07842 798482

My kids call it ‘mummy’s favourite shop’ and it’s true. Not only do Bon Tot have an amazing collection of children’s wear, toys and clothes for me too. The service from Kris is 1st class. If I’m in with the kids she whips them away to draw, chat or feed the shop dog Frisco so that I can shop and if I’m shopping solo we have the best chats. I just hope that they keep expanding their size range as my kids grow.

Best kid’s shop in Scotland. The coolest brands, the warmest service and a really fun environment- my favourite place to shop for my little one!


Seafield Rd E, Edinburgh EH15 1TB, UK – 0333 004 4444

A very massive Matalan store with a variety of clothing lines to choose from. Although I must say it is difficult for first time visitors to find their way into the car park, i recommend using a Satelite navigation system for this. The reason i am giving 3 stars is because it has a very depressing atmosphere inside the store which in my opinion affects the shopping experience. Other than that, good stylish clothes to choose from.

Great choice of clothes for all the family plus bedding, linen etc and other household wares. Good prices too. You need to get a Matalan card to shop there.

Mens Clothes

Slater Menswear Edinburgh

100 George St, Edinburgh EH2 3DF, UK – 0131 220 4343

I was very well looked after. A proper tailor shop where they don't just sell you a suit. They measure you and help with styles to match your shape and look. Then they tailor the suit before you collect it. They have an awesome range. I ended up buying four excellent quality suits for an amazing price. I left feeling special and my suits give me that feeling every workday when I wear them. This is where I will buy all my suits going forward.

Amazing service! Walked in, barely used the measuring tape and put my OH in a suit that fitted perfectly. Exactly what he said he was looking for style-wise and very reasonably priced. Highly recommend.

Thomas Pink

32 Castle St, Edinburgh EH2 3HT, UK – 0131 225 4264

Top quality clothing and service. The staff where extremely friendly and knowledgeable.

Excellent store in Fenwick of Newcastle and online. Based in London great quality clothes from pool shirts to suits.

Dick's Edinburgh

3 N W Circus Pl, Edinburgh EH3 6ST, UK – 0131 226 6220

Nice boutique store with lots of brands that can be tricky to find

Superb, quality goods store. I have purchased a grand fisherman Symmetrical jumper, made by Andersen-Andersen. Also purchasing a Filson Alaskan shirt. The staff are hugely knowledgeable about the products and appear to produce little waste.

Womens Clothes


35 Dundas St, Edinburgh EH3 6QQ, UK – 0131 556 5554

One of the most excellent online shopping experiences I ever had - ordered an item on one day (from Berlin, Germany) around noon and got it the other day even before noon. Outstanding!

Beautiful shop - fantastic range of clothes and cashmere, beautiful contemporary styles, and cashmere designed and made in Scotland. Also shoes and accessories. I urge you to check this shop out!

Computer And Network Services (CANS) Ltd

3rd Floor Right, 7 Exchange Crescent, Edinburgh EH3 8RD, UK – 0131 541 0020

As my company grew it became obvious that my computers are the life blood of my business and I’d be crippled without them. I’m certainly no IT whiz so, on recommendation, I approached CANS to see what they could do for me. I told them what I had and where I wanted my company to go. They offered me a package to suit my current and future requirements and a quote that was well under what I had budgeted for. I signed up and they delivered well ahead of time. I was stunned. So much so that I decided to commission them to build and maintain our website. And, if that wasn’t enough, they were also able to offer me an impressive telecommunications package that couldn’t be refused. I have always found their engineers to have a professional, friendly, empathetic and reassuring manner. Any IT problems I have had are rapidly resolved and explained to me in my terms - plain facts and solutions, no jargon. Our new server and computers run faster than ever, if I accidentally delete something they can restore it, I never lose internet access and our funky new website looks great. They even monitor everything remotely so if something goes wrong they have it fixed before I even know about it! I’m especially impressed by the savings I’ve made on our telephone calls. My IT and telecommunications are in safe hands with CANS and therefore so is my business. Highly recommended.

We have used CANS services since May of this year and they continue to go the extra mile. Ross and his team have successfully migrated all of our files to the cloud and Office 365 is now allowing our business real flexibility. Three PC’s have also had Windows 10 Pro upgrades and our network is now up to date without the expense of new hardware. Sensible advice and quick responses to any issues we raise are why we would not hesitate to recommend them - Graham Davidson, General Manager.

Grant McGregor Ltd

22 Hanover St, Edinburgh EH2 2EP, UK – 0131 603 7910

St Mary’s Music School have worked with Grant McGregor for a number of years now and find the service they provide to be excellent. They respond quickly and the technical support team are very efficient and friendly. It gives great peace of mind knowing we have them supporting our school and I would happily recommend them to others.

My company has been a client of Grant McGregor since both we and they started up way back. We've maintained a first rate relationship with the company and they've always provided us with exactly what we neeed, when we need it. I would recommend them to anyone needing first rate IT support and advice. And always in language you understand.

Computer Consumables

User2 Computers

65 Inverleith Row, Edinburgh EH3 5PX, UK – 0131 552 3493

Listened to issues with my wife's laptop, suggested a solution and quoted the costs. Returned two days later, as promised. Now works better than when first purchased. Thank you.

I would highly recommend User2. I have used them on a number of occasions and the service is first class. Being a local computer shop it’s easy to pop in and get their expertise on any issues I have, nothing is too much trouble for the staff.

User2 Computers

4 S Clerk St, Edinburgh EH8 9JE, UK – 0131 662 9955

Very impressed with the service here, the guys were really helpful in fixing and upgrading an old and dying laptop... They talked me through the various options and were upfront about pricing. I received regular phone updates from them during the process and once my laptop was ready for collection.They even removed an old sticky label mark from the top of my machine, as a bonus! Great personal, friendly service and good value.

Very happy with the service here. When I took my MacBook in, I was informed of all the possibilities of what could be wrong with it and given price estimates. They said I would probably hear from them two days later, but later that afternoon I got a call that my computer was fixed and ready to pick up.

Your PC Repair Stop

123 Piersfield Grove, Edinburgh EH8 7BS, UK – 0131 258 1638

Been in today and bought one of their custom desktops. We have been going to this store occasionally for a year, both my wife and I have nothing but positive things to say about it and the gentlemen who work in it. Couldn't recommend higher, quality work, great customer service and very reasonably priced. You will struggle to find better.

Used these guys for a couple of year now, always got the job done so far no matter what I bring them. Yesterday I had a completely dead laptop with full charge - it looked a goner. He opened the back disconnected the battery or something then booted it back up. Fixed. No charge. 2 minutes.

Computer Systems


10 York Pl, Edinburgh EH1 3EP, UK – 0330 223 3011

Jonathan is the man!

Excellent facilities, and a great training course. Not just developers here. All staff were very feiendly and supportive. Well worth the money. ArcGIS Pro is highly intuitive and worth implementing now.

It is Esri UK's headquarter located in Aylesbury. They specialize in developing specialized maps for Utilities, businesses, etc.

14 Home St, Edinburgh EH3 9LY, UK – 0131 221 1117

I have been going here for a number of years and the quality of service is excellent. Recently I had to return a set of headphones that I had just bought (not compatible with my I-pod) and they accepted my refund despite them losing money (i removed the packaging). I was pretty chuffed about this since it is rare to see companies placing customers before profit.

Met by a very professional and friendly guy at reception who answered all my questions with ease. They fixed my phone camera lense quickly, cheaply and to a very high standard. Would recommend to all.


91 Easter Rd, Edinburgh EH7 5PW, UK – 07803 341338

My laptop was completely dead. He fixed it in no time at all (maybe couple of hours), hardly charged anything. And now it is way!!! Way better then it was before. I hardly recommend him!

Excellent speedy service. Fixed my audio amplifier, serviced laptop, & I recently asked these guys to build a custom PC which is working well for it's intended purpose. Very reasonable prices, useful advice, guaranteed work & laid back attitude. Recommended

The University of Edinburgh Gift Shop

2 Charles St, Edinburgh EH8 9AD, UK – 0131 650 2252

Friendly staff. I was pleasantly surprised by the diversity of products. Shouldn't be hard to find something nice for every taste and budget.

I can't compliment the gift shop enough for their extraordinary, friendly and timely service in helping me order an item. They were wonderfully helpful and patient with my order (which was complicated by the fact that I live in the US). Thank you!

Royal Mile Armouries

555 Castlehill, Edinburgh EH1 2ND, UK – 0131 225 8580

Interesting shop full of eclectic edged weapons and armour. The staff were very friendly and knowledgeable without being pushy. I spent a good hour in here as there is so much to see. The prices were reasonable but I didn't buy as I was too worried about transporting a full size Claymore home on the plane.

It is a bit pricey but it's a good spot to buy some authentic souveniers

Although this might not be the best Café in Edinburgh in terms of quality of coffee or when it comes to the offered pastries (or lack thereof), this is a great place for families. The staff is always friendly and Prices are fair, which makes it affordable for every family. It is nice to have a Café in which you can just sit down and play with your child(ren), whilst having a coffee.

Evans Cycles

1A, Exchange Place, Fountainbridge, Edinburgh EH3 8BL, UK – 0131 255 0500

I have had absolutely fantastic customer service and banter from this store. I really feel like the guys there go out of their way to make sure they understand your needs and find the product / service for you. I recently needed a new saddle and fortunately Kirsty came and offered me some help. She teaches yoga and does an anatomy course on the side so was ridiculously knowledgeable about picking the right saddle(and really nice). I was in tonight picking it up and one of the mechanics Tomasz fit it for me really quickly and tweaked my bike in a few ways. This store and its staff are brilliant! P.S. they price match also which is wicked!

Inconsistent service. Was there about a month ago selecting a pair of spinning shoes. It wasn’t until I was handed over to Richie that I felt like this was someone wanting to help and took the time to answer questions about my Cube modifications which led me to spend more in accessories which I would not have done. Richie is one of your best people- great service knowledgeable and helpful!

Soul Cycles

1 Brougham Pl, Edinburgh EH3 9HW, UK – 0131 228 5913

These guys are brilliant mechanics who go out of their way to help you as well as they can for as cheap as they can. They have some brilliant bikes for fantastic prices and their servicing is considerably cheaper than Evans. Really fantastic shop and brilliant lads!

It's a great place to get your bike prepared for season or buy nice second hand one. I've done both and can recommend this place to everyone! Staff is experienced and patient to answer your questions, they have good range of bikes and accessories in good prices.

The Bike Station

250 Causewayside, Edinburgh EH9 1UU, UK – 0131 668 1996

Fantastic, speedy and value for money! I popped in for what I thought would be a drop off of my bike to pick up in a few days. I knew I needed a new chain and cassette, but the staff told me it would take 5-10 minutes and did it. They also checked and adjusted my disc brakes. Not only this, they showed me how to do a better job myself in maintaining all three aspects so as to save me time and money in the long run. Very pleased, thank you!

Awesome service! Mangled my 29r wheel at Glentress. The guys at the bike station got me up and rolling again with fresh sealant too. Great job 🤙👌

Vital Home Essentials

269A Leith Walk, Edinburgh EH6 8PD, UK – 0131 476 0405

There is simply not anywhere near enough space here to even begin to describe my many varied experiences in and around the area of Leith Walk and in particular the shop know as Home Essentials. Vital Home Essentials provides every essential item for the home. From the semi holographic Elvis pictures to brooms and everything in between, this is the shop that drives the dynamic pulsating social hub that is Leith! This is where I met the man with an orange for a head. They also sell great advent candles in January, which is when all good satanists celebrate the coming of the lord. Today I was rudely ambushed by the God of the broken shoelace whilst I was on my way to film a documentary about mental health. Who was the angel that appeared to save me on a Sunday from such a predicament, Jesus? Jehova? A Mormon? Buddha? Nope! None of them batted so much as an eyelid as I was almost taken to the hell gods realm; forever to be tormented by broken shoelaces. The angel that came to my rescue was Vital Home Essentials. These people deserve to be worshiped. And I can now confirm that they do sell shoelaces in red and blue as well as the more conventional for Leith which is black and white. Most films that are shot in Leith are in the black and white format. But I digress, would you like to know more about how I met the man with an orange for a head?

Truly has everything vital for the home.

This is a wonderful charity store with super friendly and welcoming staff and with lots of good quality, and sometimes exceptional quality furniture and accessories. Definitely worth perusing if you are after something for your home and are happy to purchase something "used".

Fantastic place in every way. There's a fair bit of new/expensive stuff here compared to Dalry road. Shipping is also more expensive here. But worth checking out.

Overall a wonderful experience with Simpson Florists.

The bouquet was beautiful, my girlfriend loved the flowers. I plan to use Simpsons in the future...

Great service, Gale, Pam, Margaret are all amazing in accommodating any weird request... They are always friendly and nothing seems too much trouble for them. The creativity in creating something special for you is amazing!!! Well done to all of the team, keep it up ladies!!!!

Garlands Florist Edinburgh - Florist - Wedding Flowers & Wreaths

We were really thrilled with our wedding flowers and have had a huge amount of very positive comments about the beautiful arrangements on the day. I was particularly pleased with my bouquet and am really grateful for the way in which Garlands effortlessly accommodated my request for sunflowers, presenting a very personal yet very pretty bouquet. Garlands provided a very professional, hassle free and friendly service. It is a huge relief when planning a wedding when you feel you can have 100 % confidence in those you are working with, and we most certainly felt that with Garland's.

Ordered flowers for my mums birthday they were spectacular and lasted lot longer than others I’ve purchased elsewhere

Fioritalia florists. Plants & flowers

6 Rodney St, Edinburgh EH7 4EA, UK – 0131 556 9623

Fioritalia did my wedding flowers last month and I was totally delighted with them! Giovanni was really helpful and took the time to discuss all my many questions. They created my bouquet, the bridesmaids bouquets (pictured below), the buttonholes for the men, and a foliage canopy in the church - all of which were stunning. I didn't have a set idea of what kind of flowers I wanted, but gave a budget and colour scheme which Fioritalia worked to. The flowers they delivered on the day totally exceeded my expectations. I would 100% recommend them as wedding florists!

Very helpful and arrived extremely quickly. Would definitely recommend.

Great selection and fair prices. I've just moved back to Edinburgh having lived overseas for 5 years and wasn't sure where I'd find grains to make my hot morning 3-grain cereal. Real Foods delivered, and more: Bulgur wheat, millet, quinoa, Farro and Pinhead oatmeal. Definitely a place to go to. If you need to take a car, try parking near Leven Terrace/Glengyle Terrace and walk round.

My place to go for all organic groceries. Wide range of products and friendly, well-informed staff.

Real Foods

37 Broughton St, Edinburgh EH1 3JU, UK – 0131 557 1911

I placed an order for 10 boxes of Artichoke Tea with Real Foods as it was a good price and I didn't have to pay postage. I got in to it in Vietnam. It's good for digestion. But it's not easy to find in the UK so I was delighted when I found Real Foods sold it. Shortly after I ordered I received an email saying they only had 8 boxes in stock and I could either just take the 8 boxes, but would have to pay postage as it brought me below their postage threshold, or wait until the could send all 10. As one of the reasons I had ordered with them was the free postage I chose to wait until they could deliver all 10 boxes and was pleasantly surprised that within a day or so they confirmed they could ship the full order which arrived yesterday, Saturday afternoon. Wonderful! they had said 2 working days so I had expected Monday or Tuesday. I would definitely use Real Foods again, and this would have been a 5 * but for the email that they couldn't deliver in full. Many thanks!

I order the Chicory regularly now as a perfect substitute for coffee. The quality of the product is outstanding. I love it! The service is perfect too: prompt delivery with regular updates about tracking, really well packaged and great value for money. Real Foods/Chicory was recommended to me by a friend and I must say I'm a big fan.

Jan de Vries Healthcare

39 E Newington Pl, Edinburgh EH9 1QW, UK – 0131 662 0250

Love this place. Small but has most of the things you could need, and the good brands that I look for. They sell laundry detergent and shampoo in bulk so once you buy some laundry detergent, you can just go back and refill your container. An excellent idea. The staff has always been very nice.

Great, just bit expensive

We visited the Royal Botanic Gardens in the Autumn, my favourite time to visit Edinburgh! So many golden brown trees, plants and plenty of wildlife. We also visited the huge Victorian tropical house which is beautiful from the outside and adorned with rare and exotic plants from orchids, succulents, cacti and more. The fish pond is also a great spot to sit and reflect!

Beautiful and amazing variety of plants and trees from around the world! We spent all afternoon here. Lovely, tranquil and informative way to spend our afternoon!!

Great service from the lads, it was delivered when specified , the quality of the wood is first class , and the Security pack was very reasonable

Drew was extremely helpful when I explained the problems I was having with another company. He came to look at my shed immediately, quoted me a price, arranged for the work to be done the following day and it was carried without any fuss. I am more than satisfied.

I'm not normally a fan of the chain store jewelers. but i was lured in by a 50% off sale & needing to replace my watch. I found two that i liked and swithered between the two, eventually deciding on one, getting as far as the car before deciding to go back and switch it for the other one. The staff in the shop were more than helpful and did a great job of putting up with me. Thanks Guys

Very helpfull stuff thanks my girlfriend love the ring:)

Outdoor and Camping

Cotswold Outdoor

72 Rose St, Edinburgh EH2 2NN, UK – 0131 341 2063

Prices similar to competitors, but they offer student discount so that's what gets me inside. A fairly large range and big sized shop (not as large as in Liverpool though). Staff friendly, and helpful. Only issue being a couple things didn't have price labels so you would have to find/ask staff.

I find it very difficult to get boots, rucksack and hiking clothing which fit me, to the point where I've just been using stuff I've owned for years which isn't great, but at least I know what the problems are. But after two weekends of not-very-enjoyable hiking, feeling too hot, too wind-blown, and too wet, and constantly trying to adjust by taking things off and putting other things on and then off again, I decided to try Cotswolds (I normally shop at the less pricey Mountain Warehouse). And I'm glad I did: the lovely sales assistant, Sarah, listened really well to what I wanted and didn't want, and found several really good options which fit me and had the features I wanted, and she talked me through several rucksack options, discussing very knowledgeably all the features, and I'm really, really happy with my purchases. I went into the shop feeling I probably wouldn't find anything close to what I wanted - this has happened many times before - and I've come away feeling satisfied that the rucksack and jacket I bought are the best possible options for me. The shop has lots of good stock, but Sarah's help was crucial for me.


27-29 Frederick St, Edinburgh EH2 2ND, UK – 0131 225 7456

Very good pet supplies shop and they sell some reptiles and small pets like guinnea pigs and rabbits. They have a vast array of cat toys and accessories like collars, catnip, toys etc. They even have 2 resident cats in the shop. Edinburgh's premier pet shop and has a long established reputation from the days they were based at the end of London Road.

Capital Pets

134 Easter Rd, Edinburgh EH7 5RJ, UK – 0131 661 8011

Excellent and friendly service. I have never been disappointed and every time I went I found what I needed, whether it is for my hamster or more lately dog. The owner always has good advice and is clearly passionate about animals. Prices are very, very reasonable for a small pet shop and sometimes cheaper than major pet supermarkets. I don't understand how people would be disappointed by the place, unless you don't understand the meaning of local shops or you expect Disneyland.

Capital Pets provides a fantastic service. If they don't have it in stock, they will order it. If you need some advice, they can provide it. Donald is passionate and knowledgeable, friendly and obliging. I got my first dog five years ago and have been a loyal customer ever since. Now I have two and they love going to visit the shop. Considering the size of the shop, there is a pretty big range (as I say above, they can order just about anything that they don't have on the shelf and have it delivered in a few days), and things are extremely reasonably priced. If I shop elsewhere, I inevitably feel a little bit guilty now, but more importantly, I invariably find out I get a worse deal.

Nice collection for all kind of sports wear from head to toe. You have different variety of products and brands you can choose from your likes. Price is also reasonable for most of products. Also if you want anything specific you can actully go online and order if not available at store or if available at store you can book it for your self. Also you get discounts when shopping online

Richer Sounds, Edinburgh

1B Chambers St, Edinburgh EH1 1HR, UK – 0333 900 0026

I originally found Richer Sounds through Amazon as I was looking for an amp to power two 100 watt vintage speakers my Dad bought in the 1970s. I spoke to a knowledgeable friend about the Amazon speakers and he suggested that I go into the Richer Sounds shop to get some advice. All in all a very good experience, it is quite a big ticket item for me so I was happy to make the purchase in the shop as I think I now have a product which I am comfortable will work well. Also, I have had a very nice email asking how everything has gone etc.

Honest advice from knowledgeable, professional and friendly staff coupled competitive prices on quality products makes Richer Sounds the best place for audio visual kit. Recently had a TV fail under warranty, no problems getting a credit note and good advice on choosing a replacement model. Would definitely recommend.


Leith, 3-4 Newkirkgate Centre, Edinburgh EH6 6AA, UK – 0131 553 1815

Very friendly staff and very clean and tidy...

some of the service is good like the chit chat with the employees but they have no clue on what up selling and consumer relations are and should be trained better in consumerism, i was sold an item "refurb" and you have the same item brand new for 50 pence more a week "with a 4k ultra option" and your staff did not try to up sell me for the better product but rather let me go into the agreement which i found weird as you would think the employees would know whats on the website/in the shop etc so i was not happy they did not try to offer me the better product "which most stores" would try to sell me a better option, ill stick to my original agreement with the product im getting but not to happy that no one made me aware there were other better options at a slightly bigger price which would have been very acceptable to me and i would have gone into an agreement for the brand new product...

Ginger Snap did the catering for my 40th in 2007 and have just done the catering for my 50th. The food was delicious, the staff were really helpful and I would strongly recommend using them if you're looking for a caterer.

Ginger Snap catered for our wedding in Glasgow a few weeks ago and everything was beyond amazing! We have had so many guests contact us to say how impressed they were with not just the food ( I will come on to that later 😉), but how lovely your team were! They all struck just the right balance of friendliness and kindness, with outmost professionalism and excellent service practice. Nothing was too much trouble and they all really seemed to be enjoying themselves which is fantastic to see. Our event manager, Mary, was amazing! She made everything seem so effortless and is so much fun to work with! In short, Ginger Snap made whole process a complete joy! Last but by no means, least the food! Three weeks on from our wedding and people are still raving about the food. It was all absolutely delicious. Non-fish lovers are now converts thanks to our delicious sea bream main and a non-chocolate lover made a point of letting us know that they polished off the uber chocolatey dessert with glee! Those with special dietaries have also individually approached us to say how fantastic their meals were. A celiac friend was particularly impressed and said this was the first event in ages where she felt like she wasn't an inconvenience and that her meal was just as special and made with just as much care as everyone else's. I have lost count of the people who have said that this was the best wedding food they have ever had as well as a number of 'best wedding ever' comments. I could go on, but in a nutshell, Mary and her team played a huge part in making our wedding the best day of our lives and we can't thank them enough for that.
