We found this hotel while walking around the Granville Terrace area of Edinburgh. We noticed that this facility had a solarium area that looked like a restaurant and so we looked closer and low and behold it was the Royal Ettrick Hotel. We went into the bar/restaurant area and sat down for a break. I ordered a Bitter & Twisted Blonde Beer (tall) and sipped on it while I relaxed in the bar. My wife went off to find some reading material and came back with several vegetarian related magazines.
We had a look at the restaurant lunch menu and decided to stay for lunch, which was a great decision. I had an appetizer of haggis, meeps and tatties and this was my first try at haggis. It is not to be forgotten. I also had a brie dish that was out of this world. My wife had a wonderful entree as well and we even had a chat with the chef about the contents of haggis. All the staff were wonderful and we'd go back to the Royal Ettrick Hotel and restaurant if we are back in Edinburgh. It used to be a ship captain's estate and it's a lovely spot.
