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.

    Slow service. It took 40 mins to get served and another 20 for the food to arrive. Food was ok but not as good if compared to places charging similar prices in town.
