Welcome to The Witchery

Scotland's most famous restaurant

James Thomson’s The Witchery by the Castle is the most spectacularly atmospheric dining destination in Edinburgh.

Now in our 5th decade the stunning décor, legendary food and award-winning wine list have ensured the Witchery by the Castle has become a much loved Edinburgh institution. Dine in the rich baroque surroundings of the original oak-panelled Witchery or among the elegant candle-lit charms of the Secret Garden. There are also 9 theatrical suites - perfect for those looking to stay in the most indulgent settings. Lavishly decorated, our suites scream romance with a capital R! Whether you stay or dine The Witchery is an unforgettably magical experience.

We are open all day from 12noon - 11.30pm (last reservation), 7 days a week.  We hope to see you soon.
