Across the Firth of Forth from Edinburgh, in the town of North Queensferry, the Wee Restaurant has remained a Fife standout for more than a decade. As its name implies, it’s a small spot with just 40 seats, but the close quarters create a relaxed, intimate atmosphere. Here, husband-and-wife team Craig and Vikki Wood offer simple food like char-grilled sirloin steak and smoked haddock with potatoes alongside a carefully considered selection of wines. In addition to à la carte dishes, the restaurant serves a seasonal “Menu du Jour” at lunchtime Tuesday through Saturday and in the evening from Tuesday through Thursday. It’s perfect for lighter appetites and offers great value, with two courses for £16 (around $21) or three for just £20 ($26).
The Wee Restaurant
In the port of North Queensferry, the Wee Restaurant sits in the shadow of the famous Forth Bridge, a short train ride from Edinburgh. Small by name and nature, the dining room holds 40 maximum. Owner and chef Craig Wood trained in some of Scotland’s finest restaurants, and here serves a menu highlighting local and seasonal ingredients, such as steamed sea bream with crab and ginger mousseline or smoked wood pigeon with cassoulet.
