What to expect

Scotland’s heritage, stories, food and music all combine for a captivating evening that indulges the best of Scottish traditions.

Your evening will begin as all the best evenings do; with the warm Scottish welcome, famous the world over. You’ll be made to feel right at home in our dining room, with Edinburgh Castle as your neighbor. To start, you’ll enjoy traditional Scottish prose as our chefs prepare the freshest, finest food from our larder of locally sourced ingredients. You’ll hear all about the very icons that symbolise Scotland and how they came to be part of the character and culture. Saint Andrew, the national patron saint, the beautifully striking saltire flag and the prickly purple thistle, the flower of Scotland. And of course your host for the evening, dressed for the occasion, will tell you all about that curious Scottish skirt - better known as the kilt – the famous dress of the Scottish Highlands.

Scotland’s myths, music and food are served at your table: you'll have time to make new friends whilst eating the finest of Scottish fayre. Edinburgh Haggis, Scottish Beef, seasonal vegetables and creamy traditional Cranachan will be enjoyed amongst the tales of Scotland. No Scottish evening is complete without whisky of course so you will be served a ‘wee dram’ of our national drink, our ‘water of life’. And to ensure you can raise a glass like a true Scot you'll learn a Scot’s toast as well as a few phrases. By the end of the night you’ll feel like a local.

So huddle in and join an exceptional night or as they say in Scotland - ‘Coorie in’, ‘lend us yir lug’ and enjoy a ‘rare’ night in.
