A contemporary bistro in the heart of Leith


Welcome to Borough, a relaxed, independently-owned restaurant in the heart of Leith serving up an ever changing set menu.



The Team

Borough is independently run by husband and wife team Darren and Aleksandra who bring their passion for all things local, seasonal, sustainable to the menu. Chef Darren oversees the kitchen with his flair for unique and interesting flavour combinations while restaurant manager Aleks creates a welcoming, friendly atmosphere in the dining room. 


The Food

Our Set menu changes regularly to showcase the very best in seasonal produce. We maintain a close relationship with all of our local suppliers to ensure that we not only use fantastic ingredients in all of our dishes, but to make sure that everything that comes out of our kitchen is sustainable and environmentally responsible, too.

Our Home

Borough is located in Leith, Edinburgh’s portside neighbourhood. Leith was formerly a separate Municipal Burgh and its strong sense of independent community is still evident today. A foodie haven, with Michelin-starred restaurants, coffee roasters and street food vendors shoulder to shoulder, Leith is warm and welcoming and we’re proud to call it home.

Contemporary Scottish cuisine inspired by seasonal sourcing and partnerships with local suppliers.
