Used to do wonderful afternoon teas and be in the Top 5 for the UK for gluten free afternoon teas. Went lots of times with friends and family to celebrate special occasions. Last time there was Feb 2016.

We visited on Friday night during a long weekend in Edinburgh. Although the restaurant itself is slightly lifeless (probably being in a hotel), the food was lovely. An incredibly reasonably priced tasting menu, aperitifs and bottle of wine. We would definitely visit again. The following...More

Old Town
Few Edinburghers live in the Old Town, but its
labyrinth of dank alleys and steep streets suggests
this was not always the case. Today, it’s mostly
visitors, tartan-flavoured souvenir shops, and pipers
that you’ll find on its cobbled streets. This is the
place to get a feel for Auld Reekie (Old Smelly), as
the town was once nicknamed, and stroll the Royal
Mile, the thoroughfare that links the castle with the
