sea food chowder recipe below as chef has unfortunately misplaced his copy. Possibly the most tasteless soup I have eaten – thin white sauce with lumps of uncooked flour unseasoned with bits of bacon, sweetcorn and salmon.
Warm one pint milk with two bay leaves and one pint fish stock, add one lb of mussels bring to the boil, cover and simmer for about three minutes or until mussels are opened- discard any still closed. Peel and boil one large potato in salted water until cooked. Peel and dice two large potatoes add to one small leek finely chopped and one large onion also finely chopped in one ounce of butter or bacon fat – sweat for about ten minutes, or until potatoes are cooked. Mash the boiled potato and add it with approx. one lb of white fish fillets cut into chunks and five fl. ozs. double cream to the milk and stock mixture. Simmer gently for about three min. or until fish is just cooked. Return mussels, diced potato, leek and onion to pan and check seasoning. Sprinkle with parsley and serve with wheaten bread. Delicious. – How difficult can that be?
Quite pretentious with a price tag to match. Food is OK but takes for ever to come. Their speciality burgers are huge, too huge and very salty.
Staff OK but more interested in chatting amongst themselves.
Can’t say that the view from the window is anything special.
Nice place for a meal lovely views
Across th forth to Fife & the two bridges.
Food was so/so , side salads were a bit tired ( probably due to being left out all day ) service was excellent & very prompt. Only gripe was when we got the bill we were over charged £11 for someone else's drinks through in the bar area so beware ! Always check your Bill.

Stopped in here for a quick lunch on a recent trip to south queensferry.
Fantastic place to stop, incredible views out its main window of the forth. It was busy but not overpowering just the right ambience There was even a tv with some football on tucked inconspicuously away.
Service was great and I couldnt complain about the price. Definitely find the time to stop in if you are in the area.
overpriced, over rated and overwhelming the rest of the traditional high street feel. A lovely small hotel/bar/restaraunt has now turned into another pretentious eaterie which is trying to dominate the beach front of south queensferry !!
No wonder this place is always busy, it really has one of the best views in the world. We took two teens here to eat and they loved it. The staff squeezed us in on condition that we vacated before the booking that was coming in later. It is a boutique hotel, I’ve only eaten here and if that’s anything to go by I’m sure staying here would be great. As South Queensferry was a small fishing village, parking is really difficult. Be prepared to park and walk to the restaurant. Even if you don’t want to eat, this is a nice place to go for a drink.
Have eaten here on several occasions - always best to book, even on a normal sunday afternoon. this is both a restaurant and hotel. The restaurant food is excellent with mains averaging at around £12-15. While the food is great I always feel a little crammed in here unless you are lucky enough to get a booth to sit in. Again great views and also an outside eating area with fantastic views overlooking the forth and down to the rail bridge. I haven’t stayed here but from the brochure it looks very well worth a visit. A very poplular venue for local weddings too I believe
Orocco pier i found to be seriously overpriced compared to what you would get in other hotels in or around Edinburgh.
Rooms were small and the meal plans for weddings were expensive compared to other hotels such as the Macdonald hotels and other privately owned hotels in the centre of Edinburgh.
Even though the hotel is very modern and up to date, it certainly does not fit well with the feel of South Queensferry.
Food is horrifically over priced for what you get and i would advise to walk a few minutes further along the road to the boat house, which is very family orientated and owned by a Queensferry family too.
I stayed here in my wedding night as we had oure reception in Orocco Pier and the room was just lovely.
It wasn’t a huge room but had an amazing biew out over the Firth of Forth and had a large tv, dvd player, tea/coffee facilities and a lovely range of Molton Brown products for use in the bathroom.
The hotel is small but is very decadently furnished and has a very luxurious feel. Although situated above the bar, we were not troubled by noise or disrupted in any way.
My great-aunt had the room next to us and she was over the moon as she had a balcony which she had her breakfast one.
The prices are very reasonable and on a par with the same standard of Edinburgh hotel.
