Great venue in Edinburgh. Corinthian columns, marble bars and palms in separate rooms for fine dining, light lunches or teas. Good food and service. Would recommend

Historic building with a wonderful room topped by a dome. Food was terrific, the wine list extensive and affordable and the service was first-class.

Service was very good, friendly and helpful staff in reasonably pleasant surroundings. However, afternoon tea is a bit overpriced for what you actually get, but in general a pleasant experience.
