Quaint little restaurant in a great location. Enjoyed the soup and sandwich lunch deal, with delicious homemade soup. Very reasonably priced and cute decor throughout the restaurant. Highly recommend for a quick lunch stop.

Popped in after a bit of shopping on Rose Street. Cozy place, nicely decorated-a bit rustic. Waiters were quick to take our order. When one of the draft beers was not available any more, we were offered an alternative and a bit of background on...More

Our family of 4 ate lunch here on a recent tip to Edinburgh. It was just OK. My soup wasn't very good. The kids liked their burgers, although we asked the server twice to hold the mayo since one of our kids is allergic to...More

New Town
Suits and shopping bags rule the streets of New Town,
until after dark when strappy dresses come out to
play. This is the city’s central business district
with its smaller offices, clothes boutiques, and many
of the city’s flashiest restaurants and ritziest
clubs. The architecture along roads like George Street
helps give it a swank and formal feel: it’s a planned
Georgian development of regal townhouses, geometric

The Rosehip offers a real genuineness in their friendly relaxed service, with a background of vintage decor, the clinking of antique crockery and chilled out tunes. A supremely fresh high quality of rotating specials and classic main meals, there is also the generous grill menu for those who need a more hearty feed. The head chef has a flare for finding fish and meat from the local suppliers which is evident in the tasting. Of a lunch time a quick bite can be found in the soup and sandwich menu for £6.50, And the restaurant is child friendly. The bar offers the biggest selection of whiskies in the New Town, an extensive wine & spirits list and a range of Scottish bottled and draught beers. It certainly is nice to see a quality central site independent of any of the chains which are so prevalent these days. Open for a hearty breakfast from 8am Monday to Friday and 10am-12noon during weekends.
