The Original Dining Room

Step into a world unlike any other, where history and culinary excellence intertwine to create an extraordinary dining experience. Nestled within a sixteenth-century merchant's house, The Witchery stands as a testament to Edinburgh's rich heritage and offers the city's most exceptional and atmospheric dining destination.

Indulge your senses in the opulent surroundings of the Original Dining Room, adorned with rich baroque décor that exudes timeless elegance. This historic space, with its ancient oak panelling and tapestries, transports you to a bygone era. Painted ceilings, meticulously depicting the Auld Alliance and Edinburgh's Royal past, come alive in the soft glow of countless antique candlesticks. As you dine, let the historic stone walls whisper tales of the building's remarkable four hundred years of history.

Our menu showcases the finest Scottish ingredients, from succulent Scottish lobster and langoustines to perfectly aged Angus beef steak tartare.

In order to maintain the ambiance of our dining rooms, we regret that we are unable to accommodate children under 10 years of age or parties larger than 6 guests.
