The Rosehip offers a real genuineness in their friendly relaxed service, with a background of vintage decor, the clinking of antique crockery and chilled out tunes. A supremely fresh high quality of rotating specials and classic main meals, there is also the generous grill menu for those who need a more hearty feed. The head chef has a flare for finding fish and meat from the local suppliers which is evident in the tasting. Of a lunch time a quick bite can be found in the soup and sandwich menu for £6.50, And the restaurant is child friendly. The bar offers the biggest selection of whiskies in the New Town, an extensive wine & spirits list and a range of Scottish bottled and draught beers. It certainly is nice to see a quality central site independent of any of the chains which are so prevalent these days. Open for a hearty breakfast from 10am-12noon during weekends, summer and festive season.

We found the restaurant as a refuge from the rain and really glad we chose this option from the many on Rose Street, this was so good we decided to comeback when we passed back through Edinburgh. The atmosphere is relaxed and pleasant, the staff are friendly without being annoying. The menu has interesting options in among the more standard,... More

Food was very good and service was very friendly. Lovely place for lunch in central Edinburgh. Indoor and outdoor seating available, unfortunately slightly too cold for us to sit outside.

I went for the haggis and it was great. In my opinion it was not very traditionally served but nevertheless it was the best haggis I had while in Edinburgh. The recommended seasonal beer with the haggis was also very good. For anybody who is into haggis I highly recommend to check out this place. The staff was very nice... More

We met up with some family members who were going back to Canada last week for a farewell dinner, and chose the Rosehip as it catered for all our needs. When booking our table, the person I spoke to was incredibly friendly and very helpful and this was exactly the same when we arrived! The food was good - most... More

The dishes we had were flavorful, but poorly executed. Had the cullen skink, which was a quite runny and tasted like a tub of cream with fish and potatoes. The pork and chorizo burger was very dry and the fries were undercooked - they were not eaten. We would've shared this feedback with the staff, but we were never asked... More

Staying in New Town

Neighborhood Profile
New Town
Suits and shopping bags rule the streets of New Town, until after dark when strappy dresses come out to play. This is the city’s central business district with its smaller offices, clothes boutiques, and many of the city’s flashiest restaurants and ritziest clubs. The architecture along roads like George Street helps give it a swank and formal feel: it’s a planned Georgian development of regal townhouses, geometric squares, and self-important statues. But it’s also a very wanderable neighborhood, with a healthy bustle at almost any time of day and fine people-watching in places like St Andrew's Square which fills with picnickers around lunch. You’ll also find a series of cheerful basement bistros on Hanover Street, while dark Rose Street has something of the feel of an undiscovered back alley and is chock-full of characterful pubs and small independent shops.
