Owner's description

Wedgwood the Restaurant is the vision of owners Paul and Lisa Wedgwood’s perfect night out. It is this concept that has inspired every aspect of the beautifully intimate restaurant, nestled in an historic building on Edinburgh’s Royal Mile. From the carefully curated wine list to the innovative menu, the warm and friendly service offered by their team to their extensive whisky collection. Diners are invited to relax, indulge in a glass of something bubbly and some canapes before enjoying the laid back gourmet experience offered by Paul and Lisa. Diners can be safe in the knowledge that they won’t be rushed or hurried along as the table is theirs for the whole night.

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.”
