  • Brunch With Santa 2024

    £15.00 per person

    Prepaid

    30 Nov - 24 Dec 2024
    Following last year’s hugely successful Brunch with Santa, we’re delighted to bring them back for another year. We thoroughly enjoyed hosting families from near and far and can’t wait to welcome back the big man himself for another month of fun! We have a range of dates to choose from but do be careful as they sell out quickly. On the day you’ll enjoy a hearty brunch for adults (hot drink included) and we more than look after the wee ones with food & drink and of course a visit and gift from Santa.

From the warmth and comfort of your own outdoor table, you’ll enjoy your welcome dram or Prosecco, delicious sharing platters of food and of course, when the bells ring and the Castle fireworks start above your heads we all celebrate with another round of drinks to toast the new year.

    The food was great. Did not expect the open calzone to be SO good. Well done on the drinks collection. The staff were polite and lovely. Highly recommend.

    Great place to drink with friends, and 3 floors means you can change place without having to leave building for food and a change of scenery.

    Second time coming here & wow something had definitely changed from the 1st. Staff were breaking plates and glasses for a period of 40 mins. We had to always ask for someone to serve us. Then ask again to pay.. service is very much down hill! Very disappointed

    Got a roof top reservation 90 days before we traveled to Edinburgh for 4 people for dinner. Got put in a gondola with an impressively tiny table. When we asked to move we got put downstairs and had to wait an hour for drinks. Our waitress consistently disappeared with no concern for our food or drinks showing up or being refreshed. Poor customer service ruined a potentially nice evening we had waiting months to have.

    No communication between reservation team at venue and open table. Despite two follow up emails the reservation was stil made on the wrong level. YOU need to address this. Creates bad atmosphere
