Our Take-Away is Back on the Menu!


We hope this finds you well and you’re keeping safe.  In light of the Scottish Government’s announcement yesterday – it’s with a heavy heart that we need to close our family run bar & restaurant from 6pm tomorrow 9th October until 25th October, to customers coming in to drink & dine.

However, we are delighted to let you know, that as from 16:00 tomorrow, our full take-away service is back on the menu!  And we’ll be offering some of your favourite home-made dishes as well as our special kid’s menu – direct to your door* or for you to collect from us, if you prefer!

We’ve also got a superb range of drinks, from wines, craft beers, whiskies to gin and soft drinks.

Our take-away food is available for delivery or collection from Thursday to Sunday with last orders 30 minutes before, the times mentioned below;

Thursday – Deliveries from 4pm – 8pm

Friday – Deliveries from 4pm – 9pm

Saturday – Deliveries from 4pm – 9pm

We really hope we can bring a bit of the good old Mercat Grill cheer and great, homemade cuisine into your homes at this challenging time for all of us.

Take very good care and thank you for your support.

With best wishes,
Graham Blaikie

We’ve Extended Our Food Donations to the Animals at Edinburgh Zoo!

That’s right folks – we’ve extended our food donations and we’re now going to regularly donate food supplies to the animals at Edinburgh Zoo, in addition to people, desperately in need of sustenance in our local area.

Graham Blaikie, owner of the Mercat Grill said: “My Mum heard that Edinburgh Zoo was in urgent need of monetary donations to help finance feeding their 1000 animals during lockdown, which costs them tens of thousands of pounds every month.

“So, following on from our ‘Soup(er) Hero campaign to help feed people in desperate need – we wanted to do what we can to help the animals at this incredibly difficult time, when the bulk of the zoo’s income, comes from visitors. Therefore, we’re going to donate as much produce as we can on a regular basis.  So far, we’ve dropped off 12 crates of fruit, vegetables and salmon.”
