    Great food at a great price!

    Everything about this experience was good except it was hot and the air-con was on as I had asked for it to be. Another table came in and complained it was too cold and their server switched it off. I got too hot and had to leave as soon as I had eaten my main course - no way I could stay for dessert and coffee.

    Quality, tasty lunch

    The food was very tasty and well presented. We ate from the set menu which had a limited but excellent range of options. There was a large party in at the same time as our table but we were still served quickly and efficiently by friendly attentive staff.

Scottish bistro in West End

Along with its sister restaurant in Leith, A Room in the West End offers Scottish bistro dishes at affordable prices. Informal and friendly, the West End restaurant is underneath the vibrant Teuchters’ Bar. It is a cosy, candle-lit spot with wood panelling and white-washed stone walls. The two-seater alcove tables are perfect for a romantic night out.

Fresh, local ingredients

Scottish ingredients and recipes are very much to the fore at A Room in the West End. This might mean classic options such as the haggis, neeps and tatties or tweaks on traditional dishes such as the Cullen skink served with paprika puff biscuits. Sirloin steaks from the Borders are always popular and Scottish seafood is well represented in dishes like the smoked North Sea halibut with a caper and mizuna salad. When in season, Scottish game features prominently and the Scottish cheeseboard always wins new fans. The Dunsyre Blue and brie-style Broon Coo come recommended.
