The Witchery not only has a prime location by Edinburgh Castle, it also occupies genuinely archaic & atmospheric premises with extravagantly baronial decor – no wonder it’s a favourite haunt of
visiting celebrities & destination diners. Immune to culinary trends, the cooking remains largely Franco/Scots in style & the kitchen isn’t afraid of big flavours: hand-dived, herb-baked
scallops with pancetta & garlic could be followed by a huge double sirloin served on the bone with chips (cooked in goose fat), salad & chophouse butter. After that, perhaps Valrhona
chocolate tart with pistachio ice cream. If you want to sample the Witchery experience without paying top whack, take advantage of the two-course menu at £14.95 (available at lunch, pre-theatre
& in the ultra-romantic, post-theatre slot) or the three-course table d’hôte (£30). Either way, it’s worth splashing some extra cash on the remarkable wine list.
