About Ghillie Dhu
We loved the atmosphere, we had a great table and we thought the 'serving hatch' for our drinks was very quirky. Our steaks were cooked perfectly and we ordered the cheese platter to follow which had a lovely selection of cheeses. Our server was very attentive too. We had the steak and glass of wine per couple offer, which was excellent value for money. Look forward to coming back.

Laid-back West End Scottish restaurant
Located on Rutland Place in Edinburgh’s West End, Ghillie Dhu is set over three floors and although reminiscent of a traditional Scottish pub, it can deliver so much more. Ghillie Dhu boasts an auditorium for events like their ceilidh nights, a spacious bar with occasional live music and sports on big television screens as well as a welcoming restaurant serving Scottish fare in hearty portions. An inviting venue that is child-friendly until 8pm, Ghillie Dhu is also accessible to wheelchair users and close to Princes Street.
Freshly made food with the finest ingredients.
The restaurant’s menu offers something for everyone so if the locally caught haggis (yes) with neeps, tatties and a whisky cream sauce fails to tempt your taste buds, then you can play it safe with the chicken liver pate or a bowl of freshly made soup.
Main courses often available at Ghillie Dhu include a selection of pies such as steak and Ghillie ale, chicken and ham or mushroom and leek; baked fillet of Scottish salmon; battered fish and chips with mushy peas and also Marshalls’ macaroni and ham bake. Traditional Scottish dishes like the Cullen skink and black pudding also make an appearance.
