This West End wine bar has been on the go for over 30 years and is a vibrant and popular meeting place. Indeed it is quite an institution – loved by its regulars and a glimpse of real Edinburgh for the passing tourist!
A valued haunt for locals, for refreshments en route home, or for more leisurely dining, evening or lunchtime. Whighams Wine Cellar is a short stone’s throw from Princes Street. Check out their website link for details of their jazz nights too.
They make a point of sourcing seafood landed from small local boats, and their home made fishcakes are so popular I don’t think they dare take them off the menu! Their menus allow for light grazing or full dining and whilst there is always a delicious meat dish and a vegetarian option, it is their skill with seafood that I can never resist. They carefully source meats and wild game and support local suppliers for their kitchen.
As their name suggests they are famed for their wine cellars too, with a host of well-selected wines, many offered by the glass.
