We went for the pre Calcutta Cup lunch. Excellent food, private dining and very attentive service made for an excellent experience and a good start to the afternoon. Not the cheapest place you’ll ever have lunch but certainly good value for money.

I took a party of ten people for lunch before the Calcutta Cup and we were treated to a fabulous meal. The service was exceptional from everyone we met and the whole party enjoyed the special atmosphere and superb welcome. Thoroughly recommended.

Visited after being gifted a Groupon voucher and was very impressed with the menu. Flavour combinations made the dishes very enjoyable. The pheasant main was really good and the sauce we lovely. Restaurant was a bit on the chilly side. Would recommend.

Broughton & Calton
Lying where grandiose New Town townhouses give way to
malls and utilitarian housing, Broughton and Calton
have long been transitional neighbourhoods with a
mixed identity. It’s here that Edinburgh’s gay village
found a home in the 1980s. But gay culture is anything
but overt along bustling epicentre Broughton Street;
even if polished pubs, hip bistros, smart delis and
art galleries all speak of affluent good taste. The

Unsure. Best to phone and find out. 1st n 2nd are public holidays in Scotland. However given the location they maybe open for Scottish themed events.
