The Townhouse Restaurant at Hilton Edinburgh Grosvenor blends Scottish favourites with modern European dishes. The innovative dishes are crafted using fresh, local produce and can be savoured with an elegant cocktail or fine wine from the bar.

The Townhouse menu showcases traditional Scottish dishes, with gourmet touches and Mediterranean influences. Start with local duck egg with black pudding and cauliflower purée, or the exotic salmon and chorizo fishcakes with sweet chili and lime sauce. Main dishes are led by the very Scottish roulade of chicken with haggis, potatoes, and malt whisky sauce, whilst other enticing options include sustainable coley fillet with purple Shetland potatoes and chervil and chardonnay cream, and pumpkin tortellini with oyster mushrooms, spinach and parmesan sauce.

Amongst the tempting handmade desserts are raspberry and coconut shortcake, and lime and mint buttermilk panna cotta with poached lavender pear. Characterised by an informal atmosphere and subtle sophistication, The Townhouse Edinburgh is decorated in rich red and white, with dark wooden floors and sleek wooden chairs.

A short stroll from the castle and the cultural heart of the city, The Townhouse at Hilton Edinburgh is a 3-minute walk from Haymarket Train Station.

    We had afternoon tea but there was no choice of sandwiches so if you didn't like salmon or cheese you were unable to eat anything. The should give you a choice for the sandwiches of say chicken or ham salad like most other restaurants. Drinks were good, and service also. Greta location but No parking anywhere near though unless you want to pay £3 per hour for on street parking.

    I did enjoy our afternoon tea at the Hilton Grosvenor. The room was very pleasant though there was a draft when the door was opened. This was only where we were sitting so did not affect everyone.

    The tea, itself, was good though I feel we could have been asked if would like anything changed as we did not like or could not eat i.e. salmon or nuts.

    I would go back

    Mixed feelings about my visit. The afternoon tea was lovely but this was dampened by the fact the bar area was cold and draughty where we were seated. We shortened our stay. I was disppointed for my friend as i was treating her for her birthday.
    Also asked for a coffee and had to pay an extra charge for this.
    Would i return , not sure!

    The smoked salmon mini burger was really good.

  • ((((( 8 June 2016 by Audrey Gristwood from Edinburgh

    The food was very good and asking for a change of sandwich was no problem. Nicely presented on cake stands and just enough. The prosecco hit the right spot as did the generous pots of tea. The staff were very helpful and nothing was a problem for them. We were in a little snug out of the way which made conversation very easy. A very pleasant afternoon!

    I was given a Proseco tea for 2 voucher for my birthday at the hotel. The staff were nice and friendly and the food was lovely. Very fresh and tasty. The restaurant is lovely and modern. I would definitely go back and would recommend to friends.
