Vegan fish wraps at The Gannet fish bar

The Gannet is our brand-new sustainably focused fish and chips bar! It has been named to celebrate the first animal species to be held at Edinburgh Zoo, the gannet.

Stop by to enjoy delicious locally sourced Scottish fish and chip dishes, from Cullen skink to vegan haggis and fish cakes, available to sit-in and takeaway. The Gannet uses high quality, locally sourced ingredients and offers the country's only 'fully Scottish' chip – grown within 50 miles of Edinburgh, chipped in Dunfermline and cooked fresh here at the zoo.

Sustainability is at the heart of what we do, so ensuring we used local suppliers who share our values was incredibly important.

From MSC certified fish to Scottish potatoes, we want to present our visitors with some of the best of what Scotland can offer.
