About Scott's Kitchen


All-day dining restaurant Scott’s Kitchen finds its home in the heart of Edinburgh Old Town, where it serves everything from breakfast to lunch, dinner, coffee and cocktails from dawn until dusk. If you’re planning on hosting a private dining event in this historic part of town, then Scott’s Kitchen is able to host groups of up to 34 people seated (or 55 standing) in its stylish and relaxed dining room.

The best bit about hiring Scott’s Kitchen for private dining is that there is no hire fee. All you have to do is hit the minimum spend and the room is yours for the day or evening. The experienced events team will help you create the perfect menu, with both set and bespoke options to choose from, while drinks are treated with the same attention as the food.

Its unique location in Edinburgh is another unique selling point. The venue boasts a sweeping south facing terrace with views overlooking Victoria Street, so if you’d like to include an alfresco element to your event, you can.

Menus are highly seasonal and change all the time, but an example of a three-course meal you might expect to try, includes Cullen Skink to start, with smoked haddock, leeks, potatoes and cream, followed by hearty mains like casserole of the day or roast Scottish chicken with caramelised cauliflower, pickled fennel and potatoes. To finish, think sticky toffee pudding or chocolate brownie with vanilla ice cream. All its menus are designed to celebrate and reflect Scotland’s natural larder, and the team works with a trusted selection of suppliers to deliver the best quality produce it possibly can.

Scott’s Kitchen offers a varied and reasonably priced selection of wine and sparkling, as well as port, craft beers, cider, spirits and cocktails. The team can even help you organise a whisky sampling if you wish, perfect for pairing with some of its traditional Scottish dishes.

Testimonials For Scott's Kitchen

Wedding JULY, 2024

We booked Scott's kitchen around 10 months in advance of our wedding in Edinburgh city centre, for a meal for 38 of us in total, including a few kids on the day. They made the process of planning things unbelievably straightforward and smooth, and provided us with a wonderful drinks reception with canapés on the terrace followed by a delicious three course meal. The restaurant is ideally located for a city wedding, was beautifully decorated and the food and staff were excellent. I'd happily recommend it to anyone looking for a nice meal in lovely surroundings, or for anyone planning a wedding. I'd 100% do it again, but I plan on only having the one wedding!

Fantastic!JUNE, 2024

We booked the perfectly located Scott's Kitchen for a private corporate dinner for 30 people. We were blessed with good weather, so were able to enjoy pre-drinks outside overlooking the beautiful Victoria Street. It was a cosy but comfortable set-up and Fiona and the team looked after us really well. Our guests took part in whisky-tasting before enjoying a traditional Scottish dinner. The feedback from our guests was that the food, drink, ambience and service was excellent. Thank you!
