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.
We are delighted to let you know we are re-opening our doors on 26th April 2021
Our team are hard at work to ensure our historic dining rooms and suites are ready to welcome you back safely. The air is full of excitement and the hope and optimism of spring - we cannot wait to see you again.
This spring, let's celebrate all we have missed.
Opulent eccentricity... flamboyant decor, attention to detail and cossetting service create an environment of pure decadence.
