The best seasonal Scottish food served in a glorious setting on The Royal Mile.

Wedgewood is owned and run by Lisa & Paul Wedgewood and they clearly love this business. A feeling that is rather infectious as you experience the care and detail with which they present and run their restaurant

To be honest locals tend not to eat out on The Royal Mile as it is so popular with visitors but Wedgewood is the exception. Two years ago the whispering started and now people stand and shout from the rooftops - eat at Wedgewood it is fabulous! It is.

The Royal Mile has good, bad and in this case exceptional restaurants and bars. If you only eat in one, make it this one.
