It was amazing. We had been looking for a teapot gift to take back to Canada and were honestly losing hope for the kind we were looking for. Unicorn had more than one teapot that would have been perfect. Bought one and love it. Also found a beautiful silver Celtic bracelet for my wife. Service was very good and the owner was very knowledgeable. Thank you
Very small. And no discount at all. The woman who attend us really good.
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!
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.

Lovely salon. Friendly staff. The best hot stone massage I’ve ever had, bar none!
Girlfriend visited while I sat and waited, was pretty relaxing and had free wifi. She seemed very happy with her make up which was done for a wedding.

A one stop beauty salon with a great team of girls all highly trained and experienced. This hidden gem in stockbridge is a family run business that really goes the extra mile to make you feel and look wonderful.
Fantastic service and excellent attention to detail. These ladies really know what they're doing!

Absolutely thrilled with my experience at Ivy Therapy! It was my first time having lash extensions and they look fabulous! I don’t think I can ever go back to my old lashes now :) I also had a brow tint and shape and they look equally fantastic. Amanda was my therapist who was really lovely and I felt she was really delicate and meticulous when adding the lashes. Really pleased with the results, and I look forward to visiting again :)
The best place in Edinburgh for eyelashes by Amanda. Recommend Ivy to a lot of friends as the compliments just keep flowing. A must visit. Lovely salon and ladies. Thanks, see you next month x

A lovely independent bookstore with helpful, knowledgeable staff who are always keen to assist. The book displays are well thought out and inviting. Look out for author events.
Beautiful bookstore with nice staff. They had a great 3 for 2 book offer I took full advantage of.

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 !
Awesome bookstore, fairly organized, and a lovely small set up for a gallery space. I bought 3 books at highly reasonable rates.

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!

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.

Fair deal and very simple. Thanks.
92-120 Ferry Rd, Edinburgh EH6 4PG, UK – 0131 553 6276
Excellent depth of field and staff don't push or pull the trigger that choice is yours and acceptance of the truth if the car fits then it's your , can't thank the staff enough
Unheard of Customer Service. My mother recently bought a car from this garage and the feedback i have is almost unreal. It seems that nothing was too much of an ask, they were genuine and professional people to deal with. Also by the sounds of it the after care so far has been exceptional. They even tuned in the radio to her favourite stations and said she will never need to pump up her own tires. Why isn't every car buying experience like this??? I commend you!
77-87 Ferry Rd, Edinburgh EH6 4AQ, UK – 0131 553 5996

Zero hassle fuel station. These are pay at pump so card only. in return they have amongst the cheapest fuel prices.
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.
109 Queensferry Rd, Edinburgh EH4 3HL, UK – 01224 704230
Fuel-dispensing facility which supplies most, if not all, of the currently popular varieties of vehicle fuel, including unleaded petrol, diesel, and others; the pumps are self-service with nozzles designed to fit inside the fuel-intake cavity of most motorcars, vans and motorbikes. There is a shop and kiosk selling sweets, mags and drinks and a variety of other produce and a cheery wee man behind the counter
Excellent venue to buy petrol. 5/5 would refuel again!

I own a BMW R1150R - Rockster / Edition 80 I was at Edinburgh at the time, and getting ready to relocate for my seasonal job at the Highlands, Scotland I had issues with my ABS braking system at the time, and due to the remoteness and long millage that I will be doing when at the Highlands, I wanted the bike to be in a very good condition before I begin my trip there I came across Tyler (the motorcycle mechanic) by coincidence. I was out and about visiting different garages, searching for a good mechanic, when I came across him A new face in town, with hopes to establish himself I liked him from the very beginning. He had an easy going approach, pleasant to have a conversation with and was very knowledgeable and honest My trust came when I entered his garage, and before even speaking with him, my eye caught two vintage motorcycles sitting aside, which were fully refurbished by him from scratch. Beautiful bikes and very well maintained I remember telling myself, this must be a knowledgeable mechanic considering the work that he has done on these two vintage bikes Decided to give him the assignment and hoped for the best I gave him a budget that I was comfortable with, and asked him to treat my bike as if it was his own He did just that. He remained within my budget, fully informed me what had to be done upfront before beginning any work, he remained within the time frame that I gave him, did an excellent work, and most importantly he was very pleasant to deal with and honest at all times He works hard, his very good in what he does, his pleasant and his honest For these reasons I would recommend him, and I will certainly use him again for myself in the future I consider myself lucky that I came across him, when I was in need for someone I am confident that on the long run he will do well in his line of business, and I sincerely wish him all the best, as good people should always be supported These are my sincere thoughts Hope that all the above helps with choosing the right mechanic Fotis

Went in for a motorcycle MOT. It was done within a couple of hours without any issues. Very convenient for anyone living in the city looking for a motorbike MOT centre nearby.
Received a quote to fix my clutch and job was completed by the following morning. Other garages had quoted £200-£300 more which probably included changing the flywheel also, but James Allan told me it didn't need changing which proves their honesty. Speedy, efficient service AND an honest assessment&fix, couldn't ask for more. A clean and tidy workplace also, which is usually a good indication a business is being well-run. Can highly recommend and will be using again.

Great little charity book shop! It was smaller than I hope it would be but the books are in good condition and have reasonable prices (the academic books a bit less)
Quality and unusual selection of used books.
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
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!

Great selection of children's clothes and a brilliant selection
100 George St, Edinburgh EH2 3DF, UK – 0131 220 4343
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.
A great place for men to suits and casualwear. They also do clothing for special occasions like Proms and Weddings. I've bought two 3 piece suits from Slaters and I'm very happy with them both. When I went I was seen to straight away. The staff knew what they are doing and they have a good eye on what suits the person and what goes with what. I was treated with respect and the staff are very kind.
3 N W Circus Pl, Edinburgh EH3 6ST, UK – 0131 226 6220
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.
This is a gorgeous menswear shop for the sartorially savvy. From beautifully finished brogue boots and Scandinavian chic jumpers to cherry wood kitchen knives and glass coffee pots, everything they sell is a highly crafted work of art. The shop itself would look at home in the pages of Wallpaper. It's pretty much perfect. Yes, I am jealous that there isn't a girls' version!
7 Drumsheugh Place, Queensferry Street, Edinburgh EH3 7PT, UK – 0131 226 5582
Excellent products and service. I use it always.
Recently had a bespoke jacket and waistcoat made from some Harris Tweed and I really can't praise this place enough. Both fit perfectly and the difference in getting made to measure is clear. As well as fitting me precisely, the standard of the tailoring is exquisite. Down to the very small inner pocket detail - everything is perfect and has clearly been made by an expert tailor. Very reasonably priced and Derek is very helpful and knowledgable. Delighted with my items!
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!
34 George St, Edinburgh EH2 2LE, UK – 0131 629 9261
Love this shop, very helpful freindly staff 👍☺
on sale on October!
39 - 41 George St, Edinburgh EH2 2HN, UK – 0131 260 5200
This is my favourite shop in Edinburgh, I have to say. The design of the shop is changed quite often and that makes you want to go again and again to see what is new. I love the fact they are so creative and they also have nice workshops or competitions going on. Their cups and plates are so unique and quirky. Of course I had to buy some. If you are in need of some inspiration I would recommend paying them a visit- either if it is for interior design, clothes or accessories. I can’t wait to go again!
Really cool shop with a load of cool, quirky home wares. It's very expensive, but you won't really get too many of the things elsewhere. The shop itself is nicely laid out with a homely, earthly feel.

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.

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.

I was looking for Toner cartridges for a Laser Printer so phoned Capital Cartridges and told them what I was looking for and they called me back promptly with a competitive price. Delivery was arranged direct to me which cut out a journey to Edinburgh. Paid by debit card job done . I prefer to shop local even if its by phone or email. A good small business giving their customer an excellent service . I would definetly recommend Capital Cartridges for your cartridge supplies.
Been using Capital Cartridges few years now and always a polite and efficient service and delivery service a real bonus. Raymond

I dropped my Mac off to this guy at 9am on a Thursday morning... collected at 1pm the same day REPAIRED! Im aware that apple have started to go down hill the past few years but this company puts my faith in know I can pay an apple tax for a product and still get the customer service and after care I used to get from apple! CHEERS MATE! I will be back!

I’ve used Flying Computers twice. The first time was a battery replacement for my 4S around 2012/13, the second was a home button replacement for my trusty old 5S today. Service was quick and friendly. The repair was estimated to be 15 mins. It was completed in around 10. The price was very reasonable. I would have no hesitation in using the shop again.
Great service, great price and honest staff with lots of knowledge and skills. Down side, they are closed on the weekend.
91 Easter Rd, Edinburgh EH7 5PW, UK – 07803 341338
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
Went for a repair on my Apple laptop, full screen replacement needed, ordered the part and fit it within 3 days. Excellent service, great shop, will be my go to shop for all future tech repair needs. Cannot recommend enough.
107 Hanover St, Edinburgh EH2 1DJ, UK – 0131 539 8087
Phoned on my way in to check if they had a new screen in stock and was told they had three. What I wasn't told was that they didn't have the necessary replacement batteries! Fortunately these came in the post when I was at the store. My phone was fixed and the staff couldn't have been more helpful. On their recommendation I purchased the new 'case friendly' screen protector. Complete and utter rubbish! I followed the instructions fully and it stayed on for less than 15 hours, and i was asleep for 8 of those!! Useless waste of money....do not buy this product.....unless, of course, you like throwing your money away!
Wow first class service, I took my phone in at 13:00 and was complete and ready for me to collect at 17:00. They deserve an award. Thanks guys solid service. 👍

The Works is known for books, toys, gifts, stationery and arts & crafts. You will discover a huge range of products at great value prices. Every year more than 40,000 products are sold. At The Works, you will always find something unique from educational products to beautiful collection of gifts. I love the works and will be shopping soon again for Easter.
Nice shop for Scottish souvenirs, gadgets and more. Plus books, games and stationery. Worth a look around

Delightful most helpful place; the amazing choice of Scottish and Shetlands wool also helps. Staff is amazing, they are interested and interesting and so keen in asking abiut current and future projects whether you are a regular visitor or a first time. You are made to feel so welcome. A favourite place to visit everytime.
If you are a keen knitter this is one of the best wool shops for variety of wool, extremely helpful staff who know their product. Most prices are keener than internet only companies which is a bonus

Big thanks to this great shop and Euan who worked on it for sorting my elderly bike out when passing through Edinburgh on a round UK coastline bike trip. Some essential work was needed and it got done quickly. Now two days further down the road I can confirm the work was done very well and she is riding better than ever. Thanks guys. @hughsrefilltour
Nice visit to this cooperative. Went in with a flat tire and met really helpfull staff to help me with the repair.

Friendly expert service. Well worth it
Excellent bike fit which has made a huge difference to my road and time trial bike position. Douglas is friendly, knowledgeable and very professional, he is not forceful on new component buys which is a major plus to your bank balance compared to others! Never would I have imagined I would be comfortable in a time trial position but the retul system and Douglas service has done this, pain free and power gains for £250 (double bike fit).. You cant beat it! If you are on the edge of deciding to do it or struggle on, go for it! Best bike buy by miles, the figures do not lie! The detailed report you get afterwards will help for years to come! Its 5 stars from me! 500+ mile round trip was worthwhile after all! Keep up the good work! I have even decided to go back for my frame finder for my next project!

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.

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 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.

As soon as you entered this cozy shop run by Italians, my wife and I immediately breathed the air of home! Local products and delicatessen on the ground floor and restaurant / bar on the first floor. Excellent food, polite and friendly staff. Highly recommended!!!
Very helpful staff, I'm pretty clueless about fine cheeses and meats but they were able to put together a great selection for me

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.

Nice wee shop with very helpful, approachable staff. Stocks some hard-to-find vegan favourites like Nutcrafter cheese, Sghaia mheats, and Booja-Booja chocolates.
Great selection of supplements and health foods, and amazing and knowledgeable staff that will help you to find the right thing.

A gem for fans of middle eastern cooking. The owner is very knowledgeable and happily gives free samples. Tried some lovely sage tea.
Really good greek yogurt, a huge selection of infusions and teas, really good selection of powder species. Really good place for natural food

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.

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.

Well laid out store. Great bargains and discounts on already low priced but quality goods. Staff are helpful and knowledgeable on products, even if it's stuff not necessary to be aware of. Turned up on day that had 30% discount but was hoping it would be 50%.
Fairly small shop with limited amounts of each item of stick on display. Presume more in storeroom. Mostly about footwear really.

I went there to print some documents, get some photocopies and buy a few stationery items. They were super fast, quick, neat and helpful.
Went there once: a nice lady helped me find what I needed and the price was ok

Wonderful neighbourhood stationery shop. Very good offering within the shop for personal or small business needs and, in my experience, any additional requirements can be delivered for the following morning. Mae provides a very helpful service.
Truly excellent shop: it's amazingly well-stocked for such a small shop, and the staff are friendly, helpful and extremely knowledgeable. My favourite shop in Stockbridge.
7-11 Nicolson St, Edinburgh EH8 9BE, UK – 0131 668 1223
A stationery fan's dream! The staff are friendly and helpful without being pushy. A huge range of stationery items -if they don't have it, it probably doesn't exist!
Staff was extremely helpful when we needed some help, even with closing time fast approaching on New year's eve. Much appreciated.

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.

Mette created exactly what I was looking for, I couldn't have been happier with the way it turned out. I was a bit nervous at first about getting a dress made in case it wasn't how I imagined but the process Mette has in place and the prompt communication from her made me feel at ease that it was going to be exactly right. Thank you! x
Mette responded to my initial inquiry and listened to my ideas when several other dressmakers wouldn't, given my rather small budget. She invited me to pop in and showed me what might be possible based on my ideas and within my budget. From there on I knew I had to go with Mette to make my wedding dress, she was so attentive, creative and enthusiastic. The end result was a custom made dress that fitted me perfectly, was unique and exactly what I wanted. Very easy to communicate with, always ready to answer any daft questions or concerns I had and always listening and responding to my ideas - I couldn't recommend Mette or her company enough!

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.

Thank you so much to 3D Cakes for our wonderful wedding cake made for us last weekend. The process of ordering and design was so much fun and Ian put us right at ease from the moment we met him. The cake looked fantastic and the flavours were incredible. We cannot thank you enough..
Great service from start to finish. A special thanks to Ian for taking the time to sketch the design Lisa wanted. The wedding cake was extraordinary. Perfect cake on a perfect day. Couldn't ask for more. The cake tasted delicious! Highly recommend!!

This place used to just be a wine shop but now its become a wine shop and bar - great idea. Fabulous choice of strictly Italian wine although delightful staff are from Moldova or Romania. Very good value wine and excellent platters of cheese, cold meats and breads to wash down with the wine. Very civilised and beginning to take off although it is located in a rather grotty location. Go and have a good value glass of wine, I think you will be surprised.
A nice place to enjoy a good Italian wine and some nibles. We had a taste of different wines the waitress suggested. Delicious.
