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.
