Booked for a party of five to celebrate our son's graduation and we were so impressed with the food and service. The fusion of ingredients and the resultant flavours were brilliant. For starters we had bread and butter pudding, the 'vegetable garden', and scallops, whilst for mains we thoroughly enjoyed venison, roast cod and beef fillet. We kept space for... More

I have now been here twice. The first visit was really great, super service and food. However I took family a few weeks ago and everything was fairly average. I don't think I will be returning again as there are plenty of better places in Edinburgh.

Very nice place! Lot of drought beers. Good red wine. We took the Italian burgers. It was the right choice! Juicy and tasty meat. Perfect!

All in all not a bad night but from previous visits I think the quality of everything has a little bit gone downhill should we say!!! In no way do I mean it's not great it's just lacking in that bit of oomph it had before in some of its dishes and verve of its staff

After extensive research, not very thorough though I'm afraid, we ended up going to Wedgwood for lunch due to the fact that we absolutely wanted to try the famous Haggis! The restaurant had a strong smell once we walked in and I thought that must be the haggis! However it turned out that they only serve it at night -... More

Having read the reviews for this restaurant on trip advisor I thought we were in for a real treat. However,not so. Firstly we were seated downstairs in a small dining room, characterless with no natural light. Access was gained down a fairly steep set of stairs which would have prohibited anyone with mobility problems. We opted for the set price... More

This is really a 3 1/2 star review. While I enjoyed my food throughly; there were a few factors that dampened my overall enjoyment. The restaurant has 2 levels and luckily we were seated on the first floor. (Washrooms located on the lower level revealed a 2nd dining room that felt isolated and cramped.) The upstairs dining room is very... More

Visiting Edinburgh and Scotland for the first time and was invited to the Wedgwood. The restaurant looks fairly standard from the outside but as soon as you get inside you understand that this is something extra. Creative dishes with interesting fusions and cross-over food. A good selection of beer, wine and whiskey. And most of all, staff that focus to... More

I visited for lunch, when they have a much shorter set menu than their evening fare. 4 choices for each of 3 courses, and a set price. We turned up quite late, 1.30, and most tables will full with diners who were on their mains. We got a small 2 seater table and staff were so helpful. From where we... More

Staying in Old Town

Neighborhood Profile
Old Town
Few Edinburghers live in the Old Town, but its labyrinth of dank alleys and steep streets suggests this was not always the case. Today, it’s mostly visitors, tartan-flavored souvenir shops, and pipers that you’ll find on its cobbled streets. This is the place to get a feel for Auld Reekie (Old Smelly), as the town was once nicknamed, and stroll the Royal Mile, the thoroughfare that links the castle with the royal palace – two of Edinburgh’s great set-piece attractions. But there’s lots more exploring to do here down dozens of little alleys, or wynds, while at night the city’s busiest clubs erupt along the Cowgate which is closed to traffic for this purpose.
