Warning: do not under ANY circumstances embark on an Edinburgh stag night without eating. Get a three-course meal down your gullet and hit Princes Street fully fuelled up and ready for a night of serious drinking in the bars of Grassmarket and West Port.
We've teamed up with a couple of quality restaurants slap bang in the middle of Edinburgh. These tried and tested eateries always hit the spot and serve up man-size food portions and excellent booze. There's not a deep fried Mars bar in sight.
Go Italian and fill up on dough balls and stone baked pizzas or tuck into big boy burgers with cheese, bacon, and chipotle sauce, followed by warm chocolate brownies or key lime pie.
A three-course meal is a great way to get everyone together and plan the rest of the stag night. The cost is clearly set out in advance so you know how much you're paying before you even arrive in Edinburgh. No wincing when the bill arrives, everything's gravy.
For stag parties with big appetites, this is a must. You get enough food to be satisfied, but you will still have enough space left over for the most important food group of all: beer and whisky. You are in Edinburgh, after all. It would be an actual offence not to try the angel's drink. Cheers!
