A stone’s throw from The Royal Mile, Pibroch is a charming family-run setting that celebrates Scottish tradition. In a cosy setting with rustic wooden furnishings & tartan décor, tuck into time-honoured traditional dishes, along with local beers.

The menu offers diners a full line-up of recipes from across Scotland, all made to traditional recipes. Start off with Cullen Skink or the Stornoway black pudding with beetroot salad, poached egg and sea salt croutons. Haggis is available the traditional way or made to a special vegetarian recipe and comes served with the traditional neeps & tatties as well as a red wine reduction or shallot cream sauce.
For dessert you can indulge in sticky ginger and date pudding.
A selection of whiskies from across Scotland are available as well as beers from the Edinburgh Beer Factory.

Filled with homely Scottish charm, Pibroch is a great way to experience traditional Scottish dining. Edinburgh Waverley Rail Stat

The ambience and decor are lovely, understated but very Scottish. The food is delicious and the wine list has something to meet all tastes.

Service was excellent, and I would recommend this restaurant to everyone.

Absolutely fantastic experience. Food was delicious and the service second to none. The haggis was the best I’ve ever tasted and the Cullen skink blew us away.
Will definitely be returning next time I visit Edinburgh.
Made a brilliant weekend perfect.

Food was very good. Everything well cooked and presented. Fairly simple menu and style which was great, but that made it a little pricey for what it was. The service is what made this restaurant stand out. It was excellent. Just the right mix of friendly but professional.

Absolutely wonderful experience! The staff were extremely friendly and knowledgeable about their traditional food. The Cullen Skink I had for my starter was the best soup I've ever had! And my first experience of haggis, neeps and tatties set a high bar. We went early on in the evening so it was quiet when we came in but as time went on the atmosphere was lovely in a beautifully decorated setting. Would 100% recommend.

Staff were lovely and welcoming. My husband had the haggis parcels . I had a small taste and they were really good. I had the lamb and my husband had the steak pie. I was jealous as his was fantastic. My lamb was beautifully cooked but the sauce was a tad sweet for me.. that was just my personal taste though ..absolutely nothing wrong with it. My husband had the apple and pear Tart Tatin. Pastry and the creme anglaise that I managed to stealwere so tasty. Wee bit lacking in atmosphere but service more than made up for it.

Thanks to its authentic Scottish atmosphere, it is one of the best restaurants for me to bring a friend who live in another city or country. It was the second time to visit here. I've satisfied with their sevices and delicious dishes. Staff members are very kind. A waitress changed her direction for me and my friends because she noticed that we was takig a picture of us. So kind!
