Overlooking the meandering flow of the Water of Leith at Canonmills, an exciting new dining experience awaits - The Tollhouse.

The Tollhouse

The Tollhouse is a business at the heart of the community, sourcing quality sustainable produce and the freshest of ingredients whilst supporting local butchers, fishmongers, grocers and foragers.

Spacious and bright, on the banks of what was once Edinburgh’s most vital waterway, The Tollhouse is situated on the site of one the Capital’s historic toll collection points, where levies would be collected from local merchants transporting their wares from the city’s port to the Scottish capital.


The Restaurant

The dining room situated on the upper-level hosts 40 diners, while the private dining room on the lower level is a suitably intimate environment for groups of up to 10, with a bijou outdoor drinks terrace overlooking the banks of the flowing river.

The Terrace

From kingfishers hovering mid-air to herons, badgers, ducks, freshwater trout, foxes, and occasionally the odd otter, a menagerie of city wildlife can be viewed from our terrace – though we can never promise what you may or may not spot. Sit back and enjoy a glass of bubbles as river life, well, bubble by below (Bookings are required).
