Salad lovers delight as Edinburgh eatery launches summer menu
The Villager on George IV Bridge has captured the essence of summer as it launches its new summer menu.
With the warmer weather has come the introduction of lighter meals and a more streamlined offering of freshly-cooked dishes.
All tastes are catered for with vegan, gluten-free, vegetarian and dairy-free options all available.
Manager Caz Park said: “We felt a summer menu was necessary. We have added lighter dishes with a bigger focus on sharing dishes. The size of the menu has been reduced which will make it easier for customers to decide.
“All the dishes are cooked fresh with the best of local produce used where possible.”
Each of the summer salads will cost between £8 and £9. However, although the menu has been streamlined, customer favourites still remain.
Popcorn chicken and popcorn prawn with The Villager’s twist of a crushed prawn cracker coating can still be found on the menu for £7 as well as the ham sandwich, which is made with a whole ham hock cooked in-house, glazed with rum and sticky sauce, and packed between two thick slices of bread for £10.
Caz added: “Whether you are a tourist or a local, you want good food at reasonable prices. We are sure people will like what they see with the new menu which we’re confident will be well received.”
The Villager reopened earlier this year after a makeover and in April introduced a Sunday brunch for the first time as part of an improved dining experience for customers.
