Delicious food in an idyllic setting, the high spot of the Royal Mile.

Children are welcome for lunch and early evening, though we don't have a children's menu or high chairs and it is not practical to allow buggies or prams in the dining rooms. We ask that under 8s leave the dining rooms by 8pm.

We regret that our historic, listed buildings are not wheelchair accessible and most areas are accessed via original stairs.
