The Two Bridges, South Queensferry

Dinner time after a sunny, hot day and we find ourselves in South Queensferry with nowhere booked to have some light supper. We tried our luck at The Railbridge Bistro but it was packed, no chance to get a table for the four of us.
Next option down the road was The Two Bridges that is under a new management or owners. There was no customers sitting on the tables outside, which worried me a bit, but we were absolutely starving so decided to give it a go anyway.
We ordered pots of tea, soups and starters. I had 'French toast with chili and basil, served with fresh rocket and parmesan cheese' and it was nice, moist and spicy, but unfortunately they have seemed to run out of rocket, oops! Luckily the homemade, seriously good and thick lentil soup saved this meal.
 What a funny place this is. Like they started re-decorating&furbishing with enthusiasm and then just sort of... gave up. The upstairs and downstairs don't quite match. There is no atmosphere. The staff seemed bored to be working there. You can see what the owners are trying to achieve, but it's not anywhere near it yet. It's a pity, because of the location and area this could be a superb addition to South Queensferry's restaurants.
