    That Room at the West End was fabulous

    Although it was a gorgeous sunny day and the restaurant is in the Basement of the building we did not feel we missed out. Our Ladies Who Lunch group thoroughly enjoyed the lunch on Saturday. We all picked different dishes although Cullen Skink was much in evidence, deliciously so, both as a starter and a main course. The service was excellent, we will be back!

    One of my favourites now

    Great service and good food, would definitely go back. The long painting on the wall of the famous and not so famous is a real talking point!

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.

Local attractions and transport links

A Room in the West End is on William Street below Teuchters’ Bar. There is restricted on-street parking and pay parking at The Sheraton or Castle Terrace. Haymarket and Waverley train stations are both within a fifteen minute walk and William Street is very near the tram line and numerous bus routes.
