About Dining Room at The Royal Scots
Lovely pre theatre
lovely situation, food pipping hot, friendly staff
Elegant New Town Scottish restaurant
The Dining Room at the Royal Scots Club is located on Abercromby Place in the heart of Edinburgh’s New Town. Part of a terrace of Georgian townhouses, the Royal Scots Club is a private members’ club but diners are welcome to enjoy meals in the first floor Dining Room restaurant overlooking Queen Street Gardens.
The restaurant serves Scottish cuisine, oozes character and offers a unique Edinburgh experience. A smart casual dress code is in place at the restaurant, with jacket and tie preferred during high tea and dinner and a necessity at lunchtimes in the members’ dining room. Needless to say, jeans and trainers are an absolute ‘no-no’.
Scottish produce with modern & traditional dishes
Scottish produce is very much to the fore on the menus at the Dining Room at the Royal Scots. Starters at the restaurant may include the smoked salmon with pickled cucumber and Arran mustard dressing or the wild boar terrine with redcurrant and juniper jelly. Main courses such as the rack of Borders lamb served with a heather honey and rosemary jus or the escalope of venison with a whisky, shallot and mushroom sauce may also feature.
Although focus is on showcasing the best of Scottish produce, the kitchen also looks further afield for inspiration with dishes such as the sautéed king prawns with black garlic and lemon on wilted greens or the red Thai vegetable curry with noodles.
Close to Waverley station & bus routes
On Abercromby Place in the New Town, Dining Room at The Royal Scots is around ten minutes on foot from the Edinburgh bus station and fifteen minutes from Waverley train station. Some major bus routes are close by and the restaurant is accessible to wheelchair users. Metered street parking is available with no charge after 6:30pm.
