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.

    We had been to the restaurant for lunch in January 2017 and it was nothing special, plus there was no chocolate on the cappuccino coffee!! A big let down. This time we had elderly family visiting and were looking for somewhere not too rowdy!! This was the perfect choice, the ambience was nice and the food was good. And there was chocolate on the cappuccino:-)

    My family and I loved our lunch. From our seats we had superb views and the surroundings feels so classy. Great value for money meals and I thoroughly enjoyed the vegetarian starter sharing board.

    Restaurant was nice with good views and nice food. Venison burger was delicious.

    Wonderful first experience at this restaurant - absolutely no faults (except for the tiny bit of plastic wrap on the cucumber in the House salad - but this was very minor, and in no way changed our opinion of the restaurant!). Thank you so much. Just about to book again for this coming Saturday - and towing my parents along too! Huge thanks to your wonderful waiting staff - they were perfect and enhanced our night. 10/10!

    Very good, freshly prepared food, scallop starter was particularly well done. Steak was done to perfection and was very tender. Service was good, staff attentive. My only suggestion is that the hotel could use better lighting in this fine restaurant

    The whole experience was amazing, food brilliant, service fantastic, can recommend enough! The crab starter unbelievable. I worked in hospitality for 20 years and is one of the best dining experiences I have had.
