Description
Rabble is a, a boutique hotel, restaurant and bar located in the heart of Edinburgh. Upstairs, above our glass roofed garden, you’ll find 10 effortlessly hip and comfortable boutique bedrooms – a relaxed, urban base ideal for business, pleasure and those looking to enjoy everything that Edinburgh has to offer. Rabble is also home to Edinburgh’s first low and slow taphouse where locally sourced, quality produce is given the love and attention it deserves. Meat and fish is slow cooked over white oak charcoal on our open fire pit and unpasteurised craft beer is poured from our copper tanks, fresh from the brewery the way it was intended. Our skilled bartenders shake, stir and build an impressive selection of cocktails and drinks, whilst our team of chefs are dedicated to working with local suppliers to ensure quality and provenance in every dish we serve. From lazy mornings with boozy brunches, to afternoon cocktails, à la carte dinners, quick bites at the bar and big celebrations.
