Edinburgh is home to the Georgian-style Scottish restaurant, The Atholl at The Howard Hotel. AA Rosette winner, this sought after restaurant is accompanied by a deluxe private dining area and a hidden garden.

The Atholl menu offers Scottish cuisine in the form of culinary delights like grilled Highland venison cutlets served with root vegetables and a port glaze. There is also a variety of conventional dishes with an Atholl twist like the succulent slow roasted pork belly, king prawns and coconut foam.

A luxurious taster menu is available in the Atholl’s private dining room, featuring specially prepared dishes like pan seared West Coast scallops served with Stornaway black pudding and a lemon & lime foam. On sunnier days, one can enjoy a pre or post dinner drink of Pimm’s & lemonade or a mojito in the garden.

Located in a Georgian town house, this historic theme creates a rich and warming atmosphere unique to The Atholl. The Atholl in Edinburgh is just a 5-minute drive from Edinburgh’s Waverley Train Station.

    Had a very enjoyable experience from the minute we arrived to going out the door. Enjoyed the arrival drink in the lounge where we immediately felt relaxed and subsequently in the dining room where the service and food was 5 star.
