Very enjoyable tea although it would have been nice if we had been able to select the fillings in our sandwiches.

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.

The afternoon tea for two was average for what was paid. The decor was shabby. The waiter had not had cocktail training yet and no one else was with him. Had been looking forward to a fancy treat but would have been fancier having a sandwich,scone and cakes at a bakers

The staff were very helpful and friendly. However, the selection of sandwiches were just two options; ham & tomato and cheese & pickle when normally afternoon tea sandwiches consist of three or four choices. The staff were glad to change the cheese & pickle as I don't like pickle.

We had booked sparkling afternoon tea at Hilton grosvenor. It was very disappointing. Our table was stuck in a corner when I had asked if possible to have the nicest table available. The bar area where afternoon tea was served was not busy and there were nicer tables. We had to ask for tea and coffee, the mugs for our drinks were chunky Costa mugs and not clean, we had to go to the bar to get clean ones and it took ages to find clean ones. This was unacceptable. We had to ask for knives to cut the scones and also had to ask for butter and cream for the scones. This was a gift for our anniversary and it was very poor and not worth the money. Disappointing experience.

Was disappointed. Asked if possible to have plain ham sandwiches. But dry egg, salmon and cheese was what we got. Never came back to ask how it was. Wouldn't go back.
