Description: The Rosehip offers a real genuineness in their friendly relaxed service...
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.

Family holiday great meal

The great food and whisky menu drew us in but the relaxed atmosphere perfect for kids and post marathon run made it excellent! Food and service was good but it was pretty busy.

We were looking to try as many scottish national dishes as we could possibly fit in (did not think we could manage 3 of them in a single meal) AND we did it here. The best Cullen skink (a kind of a haddock chowder) in all of Scotland (and I loved it so much here, I tried it every day... More

Friendly staff and good price compared to other restaurants about. Home cooked feel in a cosy setting. We looked out for it was as we came two years ago with our daughter who loved the dogs on the stairs.

Edinburgh is putting out some incredible new gins. We sampled 3 while we accomodated a very harried wait staff, but it was a wonderful way to make new friends with other diners.

We chose The Rosehip for a meal on our last night in Edinburgh and we were SO glad we did. The staff were lovely, friendly, welcoming and helpful.

Visited with my friend a few weeks ago. She was visiting from the highlands and we wanted to go lunch in the middle of our shopping. After passing a few grubby looking pubs we decided to just stop at this place as we were tired and couldn't be bothered looking anymore. Well we were so glad we did it was... More

stumbled on this restaurant on our first night in edinburgh. Luckily got a table for 5 as the place is ordinarily very crowded particularly friday thru sunday. The goat cheese appetizer & pumpkin soup were scrumptuous as were the crisp fish & chips. Service (& refusals!!) were always with a smile & staff are very accomodating. Reasonably priced at 13-16...

The food was delicious and really good quality. The service was quick, very friendly and faultless. Loved the ambiance and decor. We'll definitely be back next time we're in Edinburgh.

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.
