All Day Dining In The Kitchen is Back

Our food & beverage team is excited to be back, after way too long, offering delicious all day dining in The Kitchen, our beautiful restaurant, and outside on The Terrace. Whether you choose outdoors or in, you'll enjoy stunning views over the River Esk as well as great food. Breakfast, or call it Brunch, Lunch and now our lovely Light Bites too, there is something for everyone...including kids. Here's a quick round-up of what you can expect from across our menus.

Breakfast with a Bang

Yay, our famous eggs are back. Choose your favourite. Are you a Benedict, Royale or Florentine fan? It's so hard to decide because they are all soooo good. Choose our Full Restoration for proper brunch fayre of Midlothian sausage, smoked back bacon, Stornoway black pudding, Portobello mushroom, beans, roast tomato, tattie scone, two poached eggs and toast. We also have delicious vegetarian and vegan options as well as a selection of gorgeous choices for kids.

Lush Lunches

Our new Lunch menu is all so tempting that you'll have to come more than once to enjoy all of our Marvellous Mains selection.

Steak lovers will adore our gorgeous chargrilled 6oz iron steak cooked pink and teamed with chimichurri, roasted baby vine tomatoes as well as truffle and parmesan fries. Fish aficionados can enjoy our tempura seabass, Daikon and Nori salad, skinny fries, burnt lime and Nam Jim. And we don't leave anyone out. We give our vegan and vegetarian options as much love and attention as all the rest. Choose rigatoni served with butternut squash, toasted cashews, pumpkin seeds, edamame, sorrel and red pepper sauce or a mighty bean burger in a toasted seeded bun, cucumber and mint slaw with hand-cut chips. Finish with one of our died-and-gone-to heaven desserts to finish off. Highlights include our dark chocolate brownie, strawberry compote and mint syrup and our raspberry sorbet cranachan.

Dining with kids? Little eaters' mains are delightful too. And the best bit is £1 from every children's main course ordered goes to our charity partner Children's Hospices Across Scotland (CHAS), which provides support to Scottish children with life limiting conditions and their families.

Drinks with Nibbles?

It's a time for enjoying ourselves with other people once again. If you've missed catching up with friends over a glass of something lovely choose a table on The Terrace. We can offer our Drinks Menu outside. Not fancying a full-on lunch with your cold glass of Pinot Grigio? Choose one of our Light Bites from our main Lunch menu. A classic RY Caesar or roasted heirloom tomato salad? Perhaps our buddha bowl or clam chowder? Yes, we have the perfect nibble pleasers to team with our wine list.

The Terrace is Dog Friendly too
