Harden's survey result
Paul and Lisa Wedgwood’s contemporary dining room halfway down the Royal Mile (much of it below ground) achieves nothing but positive feedback for its warm welcome and modern Scottish cuisine.
“Halfway down the Royal Mile – a charming little restaurant” (much of it in the cellar), which is many locals “go-to destination for a celebration meal” thanks to its “charming” style, “faultless service” and “excellent value and original Scottish fare”: “it’s so hard deciding what NOT to have for dinner!”
Paul Wedgwood’s small contemporary basement, just off the Royal Mile, has a name for its highly accomplished cuisine, and again won solid ratings this year. Top tip – “excellent value lunch, with some dishes that are remarkable at the price”.
Paul Wedgwood's “very special” spot, just off the Royal Mile, provides “faultless cuisine, with service to match”; the “only quibble is related to the size of the restaurant (small)” and its basement setting (“slightly sterile”). Top Tip – “the incredibly low-price lunch menu is Edinburgh’s special treat”.
Regular travels around the world inspire both the food and award-winning wine list. Wedgwood is renowned for its eclectic menu, peppered with foraged wild herbs and leaves and some more innovative dishes always reflecting the seasons and what can be locally sourced. Diners can expect to see dishes such as Paul’s signature Scottish lobster crème Brulee, Isle of Mull Cheddar bread and butter pudding and Venison with its own haggis bon bons on the menu.
Recently refurbished, the light and bright restaurant pays homage to the history of the Royal Mile building blending original features with modern design and comfort and a Scottish twist.
In 2015 Wedgwood the Restaurant won SLTN’s Wine Award and also featured in the Sunday Times Top 100 Restaurants list of 2015 with them commenting:
“The dynamic young chef Paul Wedgwood and his wife, Lisa, have created something very special among the tartan gonks of Edinburgh’s touristland, to show visitors the joys of Scottish food.”

Wedgwood Restaurant Diner Reviews
"I think I must have been unlucky. The intended concept was clear - the refined and genial casual dining - but was somehow out of reach on my visit. Perhaps a crucial team member was missing or there was a kitchen disaster they couldn’t handle. But overall my experience didn’t live up to the descriptions in either cooking or service."
"A lovely dinner here - hogged was cooked to perfection, as was the monkfish with lentils and smoked sausage. Extensive wine list with many single glasses and a good range of prices. Great service. Will return"
