Found within the Braidshill Hotel and boasting exceptional panoramic views across Edinburgh and the Firth and Forth, 1886 Restaurant follows the seasons to produce beautifully presented, classic dishes, made with premium ingredients.

With smooth wooden flooring and natural light flooding in, guests can enjoy the views through the large windows, or sit outside on the terrace. The 1886 menu might feature dishes such as cod with crushed fennel potatoes and caper salsa, or roasted loin and braised haunch of venison with celeriac purée and roast beetroot hash.

Desserts such as pear frangipane tart with vanilla ice cream frequent the list of puddings for an impeccably created finish at 1886 in Edinburgh. The cocktail list offers the perfect start to the evening, before moving on to a wine choice from the affordable, well-compiled cellar.

Decked with stained glass windows and surrounded by beautiful gardens, this Victorian building is a picture-perfect environment. Find 1886 in well-heeled Morningside, just outside the city centre.

    Disgraceful decision by the chef and manager to not permit elderly customers to chose a main and a bit of ice cream for the special. We were the only persons in the 1886 between 12:20 and at least 3pm on 18th May. You will notice WE DID NOT LEAVE A TIP. Says it all. We have been coming to the hotel for years and have never experienced this level of meanness before. Restaurant was empty. Terrace was empty. Wake up 1886 and Best Western, not good enough. I doubt if the 1886 manager will call to apologise but it should be done. We ate and paid for three courses but only wanted two. Another thing, starter said charcuterie bruschetta but there was no cold meats on the bread, only a few bits of salad and a tiny bit of cheese. Wake up 1886, no wonder you're empty.

    Nice location, really nice food, a bit pricier than expected but freshly made and nice portion sizes. Was with elderly relatives who struggled to hear the conversation at the table as the background noise was quite loud with a lot of other things going on in the same room - table setting and cleaning for an event i think - which spoiled it a bit.

    Great service and great food.

    Very friendly staff. Provided access facilities for 90 year old relative. Lovely situation. Toilet facilities were really good- plenty oom for mobility imparted folks. - needed cleaning monitoring though. One toilet of 3 was badly soiled and was in same state when we returned in evening.
    Waiting staff, while approachable weren't attentive- ordered soup but forgot to tell us what soup was on offer and served it anyway without spoons! Veg option was under seasoned and over cooked. Main course was served immediately after starter plates were removed. Same speed was applied for dessert. Impression was staff was focussing on larger party. Overall we were underwhelmed.

    Pleasant dining room, good menu choice, well cooked and presented.

    My friend and I had a lovely afternoon tea. We sat at a table near the window were there was a lovely view. The staff were very attentive & pleasant. The range of sandwiches & cakes & warm scones were a delight, we didn't know where to start. The toilet facilities were very tastefully decorated & spotlessly clean. I would definitely recommend The Braidhills Hotel to friends , and I would return without hesitation. Regards Brenda Cullen.

    Staff very welcoming with excellent service throughout. Starts and Mains was so full of delicate flavours - plates were returned empty with a desire to experience the food all over again.
