New Asian-inspired menu at West End bar Heads and Tales

Travel guide the Big Seven recently ranked Heads & Tales, at Rutland Place, as number 6 in the list of the top 50 cocktails bars in Europe.

It described Heads & Tales as “a cocktail bar that is nestled into Edinburgh’s West end which has tapped into the current obsession with all things gin. There’s many more strings to their bow, but with so many gins to choose from you’d be foolish not to take their advice and try some new ones in a cocktail form.”
