About The Printing Press Bar & Kitchen
Really nice food. Both had the burger and it was delicious!
Was staying at the hotel for the night and had eaten there before so it was great to get 20% off the food bill. you don't get offers for this hotel coming up very often so it was a pleasant surprise especially when staying at the hotel. Thank you again 5pm, you never disappoint.
Handsome city centre brasserie
Set in a row of townhouses with an illustrious literary heritage, The Printing Press Bar & Kitchen is located on Edinburgh’s opulent George Street and is part of the George Hotel. Serving the best of the Scottish larder, it is an opulent city centre brasserie with intricate cornicing, glittering chandeliers and a chic sense of style. The cocktail bar has its own bar menu and serves snacks until the early hours.
Hand-picked Scottish suppliers
Thoughtfully sourced and seasonal Scottish produce drives the menu at The Printing Press Bar & Kitchen. The all day menu changes depending on the seasonal ingredients available but typical starters might be the smoked haddock rarebit; the house-cured salmon with mango, avocado and mustard or the chicken liver parfait on toasted brioche.
A selection grass-fed, 28-day aged Tweed valley beef steaks are cooked in a Josper for that fashionable smoky char while other main courses include North Sea cod with heritage carrots and seaweed potatoes; truffled-honey chicken with onion spelt plus craft ale-battered fish ‘n’ chips made with fish from sustainable day boats.
Many diners leave space for desserts like the bramble panna cotta with Earl Grey poached pear or the Sea Buckthorn tart with Katy Rodger’s crème fraîche. Packed with Scottish sweet treats, the afternoon tea is very popular.
