Among its many superlatives it is known as “The ultimate romantic bolthole.” The Witchery is lavishly unique and steeped in history. Right next door to Edinburgh Castle and elegantly theatrically styled, it is always a gastronomic delight to dine here.
Over the last 44 years, The Witchery has received some of the most prestigious awards in hospitality in recognition of its gothic charms and achingly romantic suites. The AA 5 Gold Star Breakfast Award 2023, The AA 5 Gold Star Restaurant with Rooms Award 2023, 5 Gold Star rating from VisitScotland for Restaurant with Rooms 2023, to name only a few.
This year, The Witchery was thrilled to be awarded the AA Best Restaurant with Rooms Scotland 2023/2024.
The menus are brimming with carefully sourced ingredients from across Scotland – only the best – from the freshest shellfish to the finest cheese, expertly cooked beef and seasonal game, be it a la carte, luncheon or afternoon tea – all with the most exceptional wine list to accompany the experience.
Now in its fifth decade it is rightfully a living legend in Edinburgh! This is James Thomson’s first restaurant venture in Edinburgh (now also with the award-winning Prestonfield) and still winning accolades today. In addition to the Baroque panelled Witchery Room there is the candlelit Secret Garden on the lower level and nine indulgent incredibly fabulous suites, stunningly decorated and embellished, in which to stay…so whether you dine or stay be ready for a memorable and wonderful experience.
