We visited the Dome twice. On 14th Jan 2017 we called in for a drink and a small bite to eat. We both had scones, they where as light as a feather and truly the best scones I have ever had. Our next visit was on the 15th for dinner, again the food was excellent. The only thing that let... More

This is a must see place to understand Scottish tradition and class! From the toilets to the Grill Room and the impressive Club Room, one can see the tasteful decoration, the impeccable behaviour of the staff, the quality of service, food and ambiance.

We had first visited The Dome two years ago, before Christmas - a wonderful experience that we decided to repeat immediately after Christmas 2016, We knew to book a table for dinner well in advance - the decorations are breathtaking, the whole interior of the Dome totally amazing, but better viewed from the relaxing viewpoint of a dining table than...

We went for a drink as we know The Dome has a stunning interior. Upon entering that element of the place didn't disappoint as with the Christmas decoration up and a massive tree, it was like no other place I'm see in a long long time. However the place was rammed, not the slightest chance of a seat, the best... More

I am so glad we booked as it took all the worry of not getting a table. My mother would not have managed to stand for long. As usual the decorations were outstanding and there was a lovely feeling of Christmas. The cocktails were brilliant and the food was outstanding. All the staff were professional and approachable. I shouldn't be... More

The Dome is just one amazing place. Fortunately we made our visit this Christmas time and the beautiful tree was in place for all to see. Nothing anywhere can compare to this. The morning coffee we can was excellent along with cakes and then we returned for afternoon tea. You get what you pay for and that is, excellent service,... More

Staying in New Town

Neighbourhood Profile
New Town
Suits and shopping bags rule the streets of New Town, until after dark when strappy dresses come out to play. This is the city’s central business district with its smaller offices, clothes boutiques, and many of the city’s flashiest restaurants and ritziest clubs. The architecture along roads like George Street helps give it a swank and formal feel: it’s a planned Georgian development of regal townhouses, geometric squares, and self-important statues. But it’s also a very wanderable neighbourhood, with a healthy bustle at almost any time of day and fine people-watching in places like St Andrew's Square which fills with picnickers around lunch. You’ll also find a series of cheerful basement bistros on Hanover Street, while dark Rose Street has something of the feel of an undiscovered back alley and is chock-full of characterful pubs and small independent shops.
