We wanted just a quick snack as we walked a lot and this was perfect for a 30 minute top up! We went for tea cakes etc but sandwiches were good too. Nice atmosphere and easy to find.

The tea room is pleasant and is situated close to the Great Hall. The staff were welcoming on arrival though we had to wait a long time for a pot of tea and a piece of gingerbread. When our order eventually arrived we were pleased with the quality of the tea and the gingerbread was lovely. There was a good... More

Stopped here for a light lunch during our visit to the castle. The soup was wonderful, the service was good and the ambiance pleasant. The rest of the menu looked good but we didn't try it. A pleasant find that's much better than restaurants in similar castles.

We visited the castle on a cold and windy day and entered the tearoom (with our 2 year old) for lunch. The hostess while made a point of mentioning how there was another cafe more suited for children. But we were hungry and cold, so we pressed on in spite of her rather not-so-subtle hint! After we were seated, and... More

We were a party of 6 and had to wait a while to be seated as some people had booked and the weather was terrible, forcing people to come in. when we were seated... More

The Queen Anne Restaurant was the perfect retreat from the rain. The cakes looked superb however we opted for the warmth of potato and Leek Soup and were not disappointed. Very well priced too!

We visited the castle on a very cold day and popped into the team room to warm up and get a hot chocolate. Don't get me wrong the staff were pleasant and professional but gave the over whelming impression that they did not want children here. The staff that greeted us informed us that they did not have any drinks... More

What a delightful little restaurant with friendly staff, fresh scones and a perfect pot of tea. The staff were friendly and efficient and the facilities spotlessly clean.

Staff are very attentive and polite. Enjoyed a very good and well presented salmon mousse. A generous portion of mussels in a tasty white wine, garlic and cream sauce. Limited selection of wines. The furniture in the courtyard is a bit rickety but were lucky to be able to change tables before the food was served. Only rated average because... More

We visit Edinburgh Castle twice a week and usually go to the Redcoats café (which is good) this time we decided to try the Queen Annes room tea room and came away very disappointed. Luckily we were seated in the front of the tea room as the courtyard seating is very close together. We ordered 3 scones with jam and... More

Staying in Old Town

Neighbourhood Profile
Old Town
Few Edinburghers live in the Old Town, but its labyrinth of dank alleys and steep streets suggests this was not always the case. Today, it’s mostly visitors, tartan-flavoured souvenir shops, and pipers that you’ll find on its cobbled streets. This is the place to get a feel for Auld Reekie (Old Smelly), as the town was once nicknamed, and stroll the Royal Mile, the thoroughfare that links the castle with the royal palace – two of Edinburgh’s great set-piece attractions. But there’s lots more exploring to do here down dozens of little alleys, or wynds, while at night the city’s busiest clubs erupt along the Cowgate which is closed to traffic for this purpose.
