About A Room In The West End

An outpost of superb Scottish cuisine in the Scottish capital, A Room in the West End is the product of years of dedication to local ingredients and traditional cooking styles. Peter and John, the Highlanders that founded the initial Room in Marchmont in 1996, soon outgrew their premises and moved to William Street in Edinburgh’s West End, where their reputation – and whisky selection – continues to grow and grow.

Further Information

Peter Knight and John Tindal are two Highlanders made good in the Scottish capital. They met while working in a hotel on the Royal Mile, but soon opened up their own place, dedicated to the finer points of Scottish cuisine. Highlanders are sometimes known derisively as Teuchters, so when the Thurso and Kirriemuir duo opened a bar to go along with their William Street bistro, Teuchters seemed the obvious name. Thus A Room in the West End – in Edinburgh’s West End, surprise, surprise – was joined with Teuchters Bar to offer Scottish food and Scotch whisky.

Here Scottish food is based around the superb array of fresh ingredients and local products available. Edinburgh’s A Room In The West End takes advantage of the exceptional meat and game of the Highlands and North Sea. Cullen skink, featuring smoked haddock, Scottish charcuterie, with venison salami and the iconic haggis, neeps and tatties are all essential parts of the menu. Steaks come from the Borders, grouse from the Highlands: even the ice cream comes from Luca’s in Musselburgh. Lovers of Scottish cuisine would do well to get down to William Street in the West End to enjoy the best that the country has to offer.

Love the place. Being going for a good number of years and always great food. Have to say today it was quiet but it was really cold the whole time I was there with my friends

We visited Ona cold Monday evening but received a very warm welcome. The food was excellent and a very warming Bowmores Tempest whiskey brisked us away.

Absolutely delicious food & great service despite being packed on a Saturday night. Mackerel starter & succulent lamb which I thoroughly enjoyed. BYOB keeps the price down too :)

a lovely seating arrangement downstairs from Teuchters Pub up above...some little snug alcoves fitted for 'a table for 2' for you candle lit dining lovers. . The menu on the website said from 18 Jan but it was not the menu we had 11 May. Maybe that was 18 Jan 2016 ;-) Its not a wide ranging menu selection but the starters/mains were excellent. 4 of us with 4 separate mains - delicious. Recommend the scallops in a wee risotto mix. Stuffed sea bream was also recommended. BYOB was also good to know corkage wine £4.50 and £5.50 for Fizz Very friendly staff An interesting mural décor too.....go just to identify the celebs and staff on it :-)

We chose this restaurant as we wanted to enjoy real Scottish fare on our trip to Edinburgh. We weren't disappointed. The waitress was on hand & happy to explain the dishes & although we thought initially the menu was a little limited we weren't disappointed. 2 courses off the set menu would cost £20 or you could choose a different main & pay a small supplement. I have to say the 'Cullen skank' was delicious. We all chose steak for our main which were perfectly cooked & we're happy to pay the small supplement. 2 course with wine will cost around £35 per head. The restaurant is a little off the beaten track & beneath a very busy pub but well worth a visit.

A superb little find...tucked away in the West End, on William Street. The food was excellent, I dont think I have ever had such delicious "Greens" as a side, cooked perfectly. I had a chicken dish which was probably one of the tastiest I have had. The service was excellent, all the staff very friendly, we were not rushed, and the fact that you could BYOB was a bonus, as they do serve wine. The charge for corkage was a mere £1.50. Would definitely recommend and we will certainly be back.....The Sticky Toffee Pudd was ti die for!!

Another memorable lunch at A Room In The West End, Excellent attentive service from Susan, a good variety of homely dishes available to choose from for each course. All 6 of our group thoroughly enjoyed the tasty and well presented food along with the relaxed ambience. The 3 course set lunch offers excellent value for the quality of the food delivered and the BYOB enables the overall costs to be kept very reasonable.

Having been fortunate to have eaten Lobster in Jersey, Oysters in Sydney, clams in Canada & Tuna in the Maldives, I can honestly say that the fish dish I was served on 14th Feb 2016 at 'A Room in the West End, Salmon with King Scallops was one of the Best meals I have ever had. This is an undiscovered treasure, tucked away, but well worth visit. The Rubarb & Ginger Procesco was also a delicious aperitif :-)

Really pleasant staff, they were very accommodating despite us arriving much later than our initial reservation time. I couldn't fault the food either; top quality yet reasonably priced and the bread basket upon arrival was a great touch. The alcoves at the back of the restaurants are lovely and cosy. The fantastic Teuchtars pub just upstairs is perfect for pre/ after dinner drinks. Very much looking forward to the next visit!
