The Melville Inn
Melville Nursery, Lasswade, Midlothian, EH18 1AR 0131 660 4925
We’ve got everything you need from a country pub near you.
Melville Castle sits to the south of the Inn. This three-storey gothic styled castellated house has recently been restored. It replaced an earlier tower house built by Henry Dundas, the first Viscount Melville. A mile to the east of the Melville Inn are ancient fortification mounds known as Sheriff's Hall where there has long stood an old house in which George Buchanan is said to have written the "History of Scotland".
Our menus are full of hearty favourites and country pub classics, as well as our seasonal spring dishes, and we’ll be ready with a well-stocked bar, including cask ales, fine wines and British gin to suit very taste - which will taste all the better when enjoyed either in our beautiful gardens or by our crackling log fires.
Planning your Christmas celebrations? Our chefs have created special menus for Christmas Day, Boxing Day, New Year’s Eve and during the festive period for you and loved ones to enjoy. Take a look here and book your table for Christmas today.
We look forward to welcoming you!
