  • Charming
  • Neighbourhood gem
  • Good for groups
The Abbotsford serves wholesome pub food in one of the busiest parts of Edinburgh’s New Town. Classic pub fare is the mainstay of the menu, with dishes including beer battered haddock and chips, steak and ale pie, and haggis, neeps and tatties, and diners have the choice of dining al fresco, in the main bar, or in the restaurant. Situated at 3-5 Rose Street this is a pub beloved by diners and popular with locals and tourists alike. Edinburgh Waverley station is a five minute walk on foot, and historic Edinburgh Castle and the famous Royal Mile are a ten minute walk.

    We had a lovely time on Friday night, the food was totally fantastic and we would recommend the Abbotsford to friends. Our waiter was 100% brilliant, helpful, knowledgeable, funny and caring, he really is a character and must be the best people person we have ever met. Will be returning for lunch soon with a friend.

    Just the place I wanted to meet friends for lunch. Nice food reasonably priced, plenty of options on the menu. Also importantly not noisy so we could chat, and we weren't rushed out.
