Imaginative Menu, Good Execution *

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... read more

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

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

I was in Wedgwood with 3 friends in February (not for the first time I may add) and it was delicious. This is probably my favourite restaurant in Edinburgh. The staff are staff are amazing and extremely helpful. Makes for a very enjoyable evening.

My Husband and I were passing and fancied lunch and we weren't disappointed. The service from staff was outstanding and the meal itself was exceptional. The beef wrapped in pastry was the best I've had in any restaurant I've been to. :)

Myself and my boyfriend visited Wegwood on the 29th of May and loved it! We both thoroughly enjoyed the meal and the wonderful service. The waitress serving us was lovely and she ensured we were always comfortable and well looked after. The food was just amazing, my boyfriend and myself started with the duck and the scallops which were both... More

All was ok but nothing special. Bland and underseasoned food. Had bones in my fillet of fish! Wouldn't go back.

A wonderful restaurant on the Royal Mile in Edinburgh. Excellent in every way. Could not fault the surroundings, staff, service or food. Will be going again soon.

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.
