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

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.

My friend and I had a lovely meal here on a recent visit to Edinburgh. We were given a very warm welcome. The choice of dishes on the menu was very good. Our meal was delicious and the service was excellent. I would certainly consider going back when I’m back in Edinburgh again.

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!

3rd visit here and yet again a superb meal. We arrived at 6.30 on a Monday evening so lovely and quiet with the gentle lilt of bagpipes in the background.

Staff as attentive and helpful as ever.
Food wonderful. I had the smoked mackerel mousse and my partner the haggis in full pastry which I knew was good as had had it before!
We then both had the lamb which was as succulent as ever.

All washed down with a gin and a glass of cabernet sauvingon.

Can't wait to go again.

We ate here in the first week of December to have their Christmas menu. The food was perfect and I would definitely recommend it. It was midweek at lunchtime and the restaurant was extremely quiet.

Absolutely delicious food. We found the main course portions a tad on the smallish side, although they'd be ok if you had a starter or a pudding. My lamb was beautiful and my husband enjoyed the steak pie very much. The cranachan parfait was excellent. Staff were lovely and friendly, attentive without being intrusive. The restaurant is nicely decorated and there's Scottish music playing, which made for a very pleasant ambience. We were very pleased with our evening and would highly recommend the Pibroch.
