We had a lovely brunch on Saturday. The staff were attentive and pleasant. The brunch was good value, anti pasti stater and dessert were buffet style. The poached haddock kedgeree was first class and you also get a side dish and glass of Prosecco!

In a majestic building steeped in literary history, The Printing Press serves up the best of the Scottish larder, on Edinburgh’s well-heeled George Street. The varied menu is available all day, with a late-night bar serving drinks and bar bites until the early hours.

Hand-picking produce from some of Scotland’s finest suppliers, The Printing Press menu features rustic classics including smoked haggis, puréed neeps and crispy potato, as well as craft ale-battered day boat fish and chips, along with modern Scottish cooking such as slow-braised Huntingdon Farm lamb breast with celeriac gratin, charred hispi cabbage and gremolata. A range of steak cuts, from grass-fed Tweed Valley Scotch beef, aged for a minimum of 28 days sizzle on the josper grill, all served with chips and a variety of sauces.

Be tempted by classic and contemporary desserts including pumpkin cheesecake with rum and raisin ice cream, or baked Alaska with chocolate ice cream. A children’s menu is also available at The Printing Press in Edinburgh.

Acclaimed chef Colin Fleming heads the kitchen at The Printing Press, bringing a wealth of expertise honed at some of Scotland’s best restaurants. Edinburgh Waverley Station is just a 7-minute walk away.

    Food, location and service were all flawless! Can't fault the experience! Good value and size portions too.

    We arrived and had 2 staff pass us - ignoring us in the process, vefore our waiter came after about 10 minutes. He turned out to be very firendly; but the service was disorganized. For example we only got our glass of wine when we had finished our mains.
    Pity really, as the food was excellent.

  • (**** 11 September 2019 by Alan from Edinburgh

    Not impressed. Service was really slow which was surprising because the restaurant wasn’t very busy. I had a sirloin steak that was over cooked and generally not great. Very over priced for a sub standard meal. Won’t be back and certainly wouldn’t recommend it.

    The food was not good and the service was sub standard There were 7 guests which we hosted for my birthday celebration and it was embarassing because of the poor service and the less than average food and presentation

    Service from waiter was excellent , would rather have been in restaurant as bar seats uncomfortable but didn’t open till 530pm
    Waiter arranged for steaks as that menu not available £100 spent for a bar experience was a bit extravagant !
