Fantastic meal and atmospheres
04 March 2019
At the gates of Edinburgh Castle, The Witchery is a unique, distinctive restaurant with an enticing gothic appearance. The opulent interior and Scottish cuisine befit its status as James Thomson's flagship dining venue.
Near to historic landmarks such as the Scottish Parliament, the Museum of Scotland, St Giles and the National Galleries, the Edinburgh surroundings of The Witchery have established it as a highly desirable destination for city locals, tourists and celebrities from around the world. Only ten minutes' walk from Princes Street, George Street and Edinburgh railway station, this enviable location is enhanced by the internationally renowned a la carte menu. Traditional Angus beef, lamb and game dishes are highlighted alongside seafood specialities ranging from Scottish lobster and rock oysters to smoked salmon.
A formal yet relaxed ambience makes The Witchery a popular Edinburgh for entertaining and impressing business clients, as well as for couples enjoying a special meal or groups holding a private function.

The meal was OK - as a vegetarian I found some good choices - but nothing extraordinary. Prices are massively inflated - cost us more than twice 2 other meals we had elsewhere that were better.
Obsequiousness of the waiter was very annoying - I'd rather be left to eat my meal in peace without being fawned over all the time.

Excellent service & customer care by the staff as always but this visit we really felt that the menu was poor for a decent selection of Scottish cuisine. It was a real let down.

We’ve been coming to the witchery for many years and unfortunately we found the food very bland. We wanted something special but the food was the opposite. It’s such a beautiful restaurant but I don’t think we will be returning.
