Introducing Thirty Knots

Situated beneath the iconic Forth Bridge in South Queensferry,
Thirty Knots is home to an informal restaurant, a contemporary take on
the traditional pub, a private event space for up to 80 guests,
and perhaps best of all, a stunning outdoor terrace with views
across the water.

Open daily, Thirty Knots serves up a wide range of draught beer, our favourite wines by the glass, and hearty food to put wind in your sails.

Food & Drink


With a modern twist on traditional classics, we are proud to showcase fresh local ingredients from Scotland’s finest suppliers, from beer-battered fish and chips to sizzling steaks done to perfection.
