About Holyrood Distillery

This year we have partnered with award-winning Edinburgh caterers, Hickory, in bringing back our very popular Courtyard Bar for Summer 2021 – a safe, sunny, south-facing, outdoor space for you to reconnect with friends and family, whilst enjoying some of the best food and drink Edinburgh has to offer!

This year we have invested in a covered and heated seating area, have expanded our beer options, and have introduced an ‘at table’ ordering app.
Don’t be disappointed – please book in advance, to guarantee a spot in the sun (or warmth and shelter!)

I think the atmosphere will be better once covid restrictions are reduced.

Didnt like the ordering process and paying after each order. Plastic pints, not great. The weather was kind to us too. Made it more bearable as the atmosphere was non existent. Service was really good and the covid restrictions were acceptable as didn’t hinder the experience. Overall decent

Despite booking online and requesting a covered area, they were unaware of my request. It was a cold, wet afternoon and the heating was inadequate to cope with it. The food choice was limited and quality varied. Chips good, chicken burger poor value for money. Serving staff were friendly and helpful but we won’t be in a hurry to return.

It was a great opportunity to get together with family. The weather was against us but luckily we were under canvas. The staff were very helpful with the ordering process. For us oldies the seating could have been more comfortable but we coped! It was a pleasure to be out in company. Thank you.

We came on May 7th for lunch - even though it was pouring down, the service was absolutely impeccable! The food was incredible, the drinks were artisanal and we had a great time. Fantastic location for a lovely experience. Already planning a return trip!

We were quite disappointed at the choice of both drinks and food when we arrived - we don't drink beer or gin, or eat bread but - once we got our drinks (crabbies) and food - 1 hamburger and 1 fries we changed our minds - a better choice would be nicer but what we had was very good, the service and care was amazing and the space is fab - we will be back. Oh - next time we will wait to order the drinks till the food comes as the food was rather slow ;-)
