"Ridley's Fish and Game" Edinburgh, in Stockbridge Sunday Market, is a multi award-winning family butcher, poulterer & fishmonger. They even have squirrel.

Ridley's occupy the prime spot as you enter the Stockbridge Sunday Market (check article).  it's a multi award-winning family butcher, poulterer and fishmonger from Hexham in Northumberland. They've travelled to Edinburgh from the North East of England weekly from the outset, becoming a permanent fixture at this intriguing market since it began (Edinburgh is not noted for its markets and in fact is one of its weakest offerings as a city, although Stockbridge Market is at the vanguard of changing that poor legacy).

What marks Ripley's out is the sheer range of items it has for sale. Game is common, indeed a fixture---even grey squirrel is often for sale. I'm desperate to try it but my wife won't let me.  

You can buy your game as nature intended (albeit dead, not alive) and prepare it yourself or choose from their wide selection of pre-cooked pies, pates etc.

It also boasts a superb fish range. And when I say range I mean it. You can get anything here.

What's more, the service is friendly and advice on food preparation helpful and welcoming.

If you're staying in Edinburgh in an accommodation that allows you to cook, this can be your Sunday afternoon treat.
