an experience to savour
High above the Dickensian rooftops of Edinburgh's magical and atmospheric Old Town, dinner at The Tower is an experience to savour. Panoramic views across Edinburgh’s spectacular skyline are an exquisite backdrop for your dining experience at James Thomson’s rooftop Tower Restaurant. As Fodor's Guide puts it "The Tower is quite an event, first timers might take time adjusting to the opulent aura".

THE BEST OF SCOTLAND’S LARDER
Our evening menus showcase the best Scotland's larder has to offer as well as some of the most accomplished cooking you will find anywhere. Expect delicious fresh seafood; briny Scottish oysters, lobster from the Isle of Skye and scallops hand-dived by Guy Grieves and his Ethical Shellfiish Company off the Isle of Mull.
Our chef sources only the most tender and flavoursome meat; rib-eye, sirloin and fillet beef all direct from award-winning butcher, Simon Howie, rich game from Perthshire and only the finest haggis from Dingwall will do.
The Tower pastry team create the most wonderful puddings and our cheeses are sourced by Scotland's premier cheese distributor I. J Mellis.
