The Witchery by the Castle


Hotels Scottish

The Witchery by the Castle is one of Edinburgh's most iconic dining and accommodation locations. With its lavishly decorated historic building dating back to the sixteenth century, you feel as though you are stepping back in time when you walk through the door. It is for good reason that the restaurant is frequented by both locals and celebrities - the cuisine is of the highest quality and is always presented elegantly. The chef serves only the best of Scottish produce in both traditional and modern preparations. Delightful lunchtime and theatre menus complement a sumptuous a la carte menu that will have your mouth watering.

The Witchery remains a destination for many celebrities visiting the city, including Vivienne Westwood,  Jack Nicholson, Ewan McGregor, Pierce Brosnan, Dannii Minogue, Matt Groening, Dan Brown and many more, with Lord Lloyd Webber describing it as the prettiest restaurant ever!

Should you decide to stay at The Witchery during your stay in Edinburgh, you are in for a treat. The rooms are luxuriously and tastefully outfitted with a historically-minded style. Each suite has its own unique character, and all include services that ensure you will be more than comfortable throughout your visit - you will be pampered as a guest of this fine establishment!
