The Witchery by the Castle


The Witchery by the Castle, Castlehill, The Royal Mile, Edinburgh, EH1 2NF

    A memorable, magical and mouthwatering experience.

    Located in a historic sixteenth-century building at the gates of Edinburgh Castle, we aim to create memorable and magical dining experiences for locals, visitors and celebrities alike.

    The Witchery is rich, warm and atmospheric, its oak-panelled walls hung with tapestries, mirrors and carvings. The painted and gilded ceilings celebrate our links with France in the Auld Alliance, whilst much of the panelling was rescued from St Giles Cathedral and a Burgundian Chateau.

    We source the very best of Scottish produce which features on a classic menu in a relaxed and unfussy style. Scottish lobster and rock oysters regularly feature alongside Witchery classic dishes such as hot smoked salmon with leeks and hollandaise or Angus beef fillet with smoked garlic broth.
