  • It is in Edinburgh's new town and old town between the bridges. May, Waverley bridge parallel to the bridge, station, and transport hub of catch on the Royal Mile is climbing up the slope requires. Towards North Bridge, Royal Mile Hill climb down but when you have luggage so that you can access, I recommend here.

  • The North bridge Brasserie have recently launched a set lunch menu. We went on a Sunday lunch time to try out the menu. Having popped into a free show at the Tron beforehand we were all starving when we arrived! We were sat down at the table and presented with a problem – I wanted everything on the menu! After much deliberation I decided on the Seaweed and apple cured Loch Duart Salmon with mushroom, apple and seaweed salad, my dining buddies chose the Summer Pea and lettuce soup and Dave ordered everyone’s favourite Venison haggis fritters with whisky mayonnaise. My salmon was one of the prettiest plates I have ever been served and the flavours were sublime – it looked far too good to eat. The salmon was delicate and the apple matched perfectly with the seaweed and wasabi in the sauce. Despite my love of haggis fritters I didn’t share! Pea soup went down very fast indeed and the silence was evindent everyone was very happy! For the main course I was still trying to be good (wedding diet!) so I ordered the Roast Fillet of Gurnard, caramelised chicory and orange salad which was a lovely light option and having never tried Gurnard before I certainly will look out for it next time I am in the shops. The boys went for the classic roats Scotch Hangar steak with duck fat chips, watercress and béarnaise sauce. There was a brief moment of food envy, not helped by the constant reminders that their steak was so good and the chips awesome but I decided to ignore them! Dessert was also a really hard choice – I had hoped for their signature dish which is on the website: Hot chocolate mousse with toasted marshmallow ice cream and crunchy milk rocks, however that was not on that day so the Vanilla Pannacotta with strawberry jelly and basil sorbet was my choice. The pannacotta was silky smooth and perfectly match with the sweet strawberry and sharp basil sorbet. It was a fantastic end to a really delicious meal and I didn’t feel too naughty either! The boys had sticky toffee pudding with ice cream which was a huge portion which despite them feeling there could have been a little more sauce was nothing short of perfection. We had a fabulous lunch in a beautiful setting and will most certainly be back. Not least to try the afternoon tea that was coming around as we were leaving!
  • as an extra EXTRA special treat, i went here for a champagne afternoon tea. the service (as you would expect from a 5* hotel) was expectional. the surroundings were luxurious and we were made to feel welcomed immediately. the cakes were beautifully presented, delicious and overall perfect for the occasion.
