SquareMeal Review of Wedgwood

Silver Award

TV chef Paul Wedgwood’s eponymous restaurant on the Royal Mile is spread over two levels, a chic yet inviting space offering fine dining without pretention. The seasonal menu takes pride in quality raw ingredients, with foraged leaves and herbs making an appearance alongside Scottish meats, fish and cheeses, while the dishes are refined yet playful – a starter of juniper-crusted red deer carpaccio was dotted with gin-and-tonic gel that offered a hint of lemon sherbet, while diver-caught Sound of Mull scallops were beautifully complemented by creamy cauliflower korma, pistachio and peanut dust.


A main of Buccleuch beef came two ways – perfectly pink fillet and slowly braised shin – with buttery potato purée, asparagus, sweet roast onion and red wine jus, while a dessert of blood orange, cardamom and chocolate tart was rich, fragrant and not overly sweet. Service never feels rushed, and the seasonal wine list is carefully designed to match the food, with a well-rounded selection of half bottles available – all contributing to the relaxed, friendly vibe. In short, a thoroughly enjoyable dining experience.
