Whenever we visit Edinburgh we always try to visit the Doric. The food is excellent and service is great. Tentative service but does not pester. Which is just the right balance. The food is lovely, recently had a steak which was perfect. You will never...More

Enjoyed this historical place and the sticky toffee pudding. Very tasty Shepherds Pie with Lamb (as it should be ... not beef). Nice selection of beers. It was a chilly early March night and the Doric was just the ticket.

This was where we decided to try Haggis and we were not disappointed! Everything is made there on the premises and you can taste it! I think its Edinburgh oldest pub and it has the atmosphere to boot! I would definitely go again!

Princes Street and Gardens
Glaswegians tease Edinburghers that their High Street
is only half one, since buildings only line one side.
But what they don’t say is how extraordinary the views
are from Princes Street as a result. From here you
look onto expansive and decorative public gardens
beneath the mighty basalt cliffs on which Edinburgh’s
Castle stands proud above the rest of the dramatic old
town skyline. Yet many of those on Princes Street look

Hi I'm afraid we do not have a meeting room per se, we have a separate wine bar but this is open to the bar and restaurant area.
