Visiting Edinburgh in the winter is a wonderful experience as you can enjoy the wide range of events and the city is alive with activity, as much as it is through the rest of the year, but it is cold and it can be wet and snowy and sometimes, a night in the comfort of the snug and traditional surrounds of our restaurant and lounge is much more appealing than heading out into the cold and looking for another dining option. The Royal Scots Club restaurant has a regularly changing, seasonally-led menu which includes dishes sourced locally and a wonderful range of choice for meat eaters, vegetarians and everyone in between.
Our restaurant offers genuine Scottish hospitality and the warm, welcoming surrounds of a traditional club environment. Our food has been developed with care by our experienced head chef and in addition to our range of private dining options, our open restaurant has a wonderful menu with classically flavoured dishes to enjoy.
The dinner menu at our wonderful restaurant is a mixture of locally sourced high quality produce including Scottish Borders ribeye steak and pork fillets. There are also fish dishes including North Atlantic turbot fillet and a starter which brings together the harmonious flavours of smoked salmon, trout and mackerel in an appetising terrine. Our restaurant menu is further supported by a more informal and relaxed bar menu which includes a mixture of toasted focaccia, rustic chips and freshly made soup.
Private Dining at the Royal Scots Club
If you are visiting for a special occasion then our private dining options offer an excellent range of menus, and the comfort of your own private space in which to celebrate. Our private diners can enjoy a range of set celebration menus with the choice of mixing and matching different meals with everything from sumptuous supreme of chicken with a tomato and basil stuffing to braised daube of Scottish beef in bourguignon sauce and a fish option of baked salmon on samphire with a vermouth butter sauce. Both members and non-members of the Royal Scots Club can book a private dinner room from our choice, available in different sizes to cater to your party.
Our menus regularly change and are updated to reflect the seasons and this winter we believe we have a menu which will more than make you want to stay in and enjoy our renowned hospitality and wonderful restaurant environment. Our restaurant is open for dinner Monday to Saturday from 7pm until 9pm, with further settings taking place for High Tea between 5.30pm and 7pm, Lunch between 12pm and 2pm and there are breakfast settings daily for guests too.
