Restaurant description

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.

    Food was excellent, tasty and good size portions, the service was also very good and friendly. On the drinks side it was missing some Malbec, Argentinian ones are usually very good.

    Generally great! Not an extensive menu so it was a shame that two main courses were not available.

    Pleasant experience and good food but disappointed in our Artisan bread and Foccaccia bread starter priced at £4.50 which was actually just brown and white bread from a loaf I’d buy at the supermarket. Service a bit slow at times but pleasant enough all round. Door to outside was opened midway through meal was freezing but shut on request of another customer. Food was good.

    The staff were lovely and attentive. However, having looked on the details for the Meerkat details it was not clear that i had to tell you what i wanted to order as the information just says book in advance . More detail relating to Meerkat deal would have been helpful.
