Fantastic service, great ambiance with history. Start with mussels, both the shepherd pie and salmon were great for main dishes. Cheesecake was more like a moose, but still good.

We had the Shepard’s pie and the venison stew. Both were beyond delicious. Succulent meat cooked to perfection. Potatoes creamy, veggies firm. An A+ meal. Add a fine single malt and you’ve reached heaven.

This the pkace to vo with a good selection of beers and excellent domestic/ international food. Curtious waiters, fast and responsive, and a burger "to die for". My friends had pasta, haggis and Shepard' s Pie, and no complaints there either. Highly recommended.

We had no idea it would be so hard to find a table early on a Friday night. Either the pubs weren't serving and we're super crowded or there was a waiting list and we didn't want to wait. The Doric accommodated us and the...More

Princes Street and Gardens
Glaswegians tease Edinburghers that their High Street
is only half one, since buildings only line one side.
But what they don’t say is how extraordinary the views
are from Princes Street as a result. From here you
look onto expansive and decorative public gardens
beneath the mighty basalt cliffs on which Edinburgh’s
Castle stands proud above the rest of the dramatic old
town skyline. Yet many of those on Princes Street look

Hi I'm afraid we do not have a meeting room per se, we have a separate wine bar but this is open to the bar and restaurant area.
