About The Orchard

The Orchard Edinburgh in Canonmills is an inviting bar and restaurant, located just a hop, skip and a jump from the Royal Botanic Gardens in Bonnington. Situated on Howard Place, the team behind The Orchard put great emphasis on fresh, locally-sourced produce and as a result the menu changes depending on what ingredients they get each week from their dedicated suppliers. But what exact dishes can you expect to tuck into? Well, for one, you don’t want to miss out on their extensive sandwich offering, each of which is served on a fresh crunchy ciabatta with an optional side of hand cut rooster chips. For the main event, perhaps some steak pie might tickle your fancy? Whereas the twice-baked goats cheese souffle with hazelnut crust, sweet oven roasted cherry vine tomatoes and green salad makes a great choice for veggies. No matter what you eat, however, it’s sure to be delicious – just make sure you book in advance to avoid disappointment.

We received a warm and friendly welcome on arrival, and the food and service were excellent. The portions were generous and very tasty. This was our first visit but we are looking forward to many more future ones.
