The ambience was really good, however we found the cocktails (alcoholic and non alcoholic) very unpalatable and even when we asked for them to be changed, these were no better either. We had 2 people who don't drink alcohol and the price of their ticket was the same as those of us having alcoholic cocktails, which we thought was pretty poor. All of us thought that the experience was not value for money and were extremely disappointed as it was a 30th birthday bash for one of the girls.

The experience was fantastic but the cocktails weren't great. Perhaps a little tonic rather than water would help! The staff were wonderful though and overall it was fab

Not all of the cocktails were personally to my taste, but it was an amazing experience with awesome staff helping out and just making it all come together. I would recommend this to anyone wanting to have a little fun whilst making their own cocktails.

We visited as a family and had loads of fun. The team took great care of us and made sure that everybody got the ingredients they were supposed to have (non-alcoholic and alcoholic) ;-)

Its a great idea, but sadly lacking in atmosphere as there were only about 4 other groups/couples here. Staff were great, but I feel that if there were more people, it would have been a lot better. there were 4 of us which helped, but if we'd went as a couple, it would have been awful. the drinks were ok and then of us hated the last drink, and they very kindly swapped it for something else. My recommendation would be to lower the prices, and have the place full to capacity. They it would be more fun. ten people might to back, but sadly, we won't, even as die and Harry Potter fans.

Very fun, perhaps an option of what kind of cocktails to make? Our group weren’t keen on any of the cocktails which were made at the table, sadly. We had great fun and it was a good laugh. I didn’t get the lady’s name but she was only there for two days and she made us feel very welcome and provided great service. We did feel slightly rushed through our experience and the options for cocktails after were quite expensive too but if the option was there to replace the cocktails with some of the options after we would have definitely done so. Again the place looked funky, the music set the atmosphere and staff were very friendly and welcoming, everything was immaculately clean too, just sadly the cocktails made didn’t tickle our taste buds.

We felt that our potions master could have given us some more basic information at the start of our session which would have led to our experience being more positive

This was a real immersive experience, magical, enchanting! Definitely would recommend it to everyone who loves magic and also has at least a day to spend in Edinburgh! If we’re ever returning to this beautiful city, we will be more than willing to try our best in order to become a potions master! And that is a promise! 😉 P.S.: All the potions masters were absolutely delightful! Keep up the good job! And next time we’re buying a wand!

This is my second time going, I love the Cauldron and its really good fun. I am looking forward to there being different potion classes to pick from, that would be really cool. The staff are all really nice but I would love it if they where a bit more theatrical but thats just preference really.

Amazing experience and all the staff were fully enthusiastic making the whole experience even better. I would 100% recommend this and I will be going back as many times as I can as my fiancee (who loves all mafic related things) and myself absolutely loved it. Thank you again to all the staff for making it an amazing night!!!

Great idea, loved the cape and wand. However, drinks were not that great, really need to offer options on the alcohol offered eg we don’t drink gin or rum and there’s no menu to know this beforehand. Lighting was too harsh. Really need to offer each person a wand and be able to take them home as a souvenir, the experience is quite expensive so would expect this. We paid £90 and didn’t finish a single drink, and had nothing to show for the cost. Lots of hanging around, a magician or themed entertainment would have been great. But would try again in the future if We develop a taste for strong gin!

I would first like to say that the staff were all amazing and wonderful people who really wanted you to have a good experience! I think there was a little bait and switch for the advertising vs the actual experience. I don’t understand why it said that it would be an hour and forty five min experience when you could honestly get it all in in 30-45 minutes. The beer and cocktails were also not very good, the beer didn’t have much flavor and the cocktails were too sweet. Overall it was a rather underwhelming experience compared to what was advertised. It was way overpriced for what you got. Again, I appreciated the staff as they were great but I definitely felt a bit ripped off for the money paid.
