The Café Royal

19 West Register Street, EDINBURGH, EH2 2AA

Designed by local architect Robert Paterson and a listed building, The Café Royal (now owned by Greene King) is a glorious example of Victorian and Baroque, with an interior seemingly frozen in time. Elegant stained glass and fine late Victorian plasterwork dominate the building, as do irreplaceable Doulton ceramic murals in the bar and restaurant. They serve local ales such as Kelburn Ca'Canny and Goldihops, wine, coffee and fresh oysters in the bar and restaurant. In the bar there'll be dishes like haggis, neeps and tatties; and wild mushroom risotto while in the restaurant Scottish produce again dominates the menu, from starters of farmhouse pâté with mustard on cider on toast with onion chutney, to mains of Isle of Bute smoked hake, chorizo mash, green beans and crab butter. Please note, only children over five are allowed in the restaurant.
