“Excellent Afternoon Tea”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 February 2014

My friends and I were looking for somewhere to have afternoon tea as a treat to celebrate an occasion. The Edinburgh Residence seemed like a good place to try. On arrival we were greeted warmly and taken through to our table. There were 8 of us in our group, but this was not an issue and a table had been provided to seat us together. The staff were fantastic - very friendly, professional and attentive. The teas / coffees and food arrived quickly and were beautifully presented. The selection and quantity of sandwiches and cakes was just right for our group and looked fresh and tasted great. The scones in particular were wonderful (and we all got two each!). Everyone left feeling happy and full!

“Afternoon Delights”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 June 2012

We arrived at the Edinburgh Residence for a Pimm's Afternoon Tea for two which was just delightful.

The serve was excellent, the food was amazing.

The tea consisted of an abundance of Egg, Salmon and Roast Beef sandwiches which were stuffed full. The thickness and taste of the beef was beautiful

The scones were so fresh and the selection of mini cakes were so nice.

We were sat in the drawing room with a beautiful view out the window.

Definately worth every penny. I will be back!!

“Go with a group”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 October 2011

The food and service in this very small hotel restaurant are excellent. You can take over this room with 10 people and bringing your own party would create the perfect atmosphere. The food and wine selection are gorgeous and though not cheap, are good value for the quality, presentation and intelligence. A high quality eatery.
