We brought friends who were up for the Festival to The Dining Room for lunch, and it was an oasis of tranquillity amid the Princes St/George St Festival madness. The food was wonderful and beautifully presented, and gave us the strength to tackle the next lot of shows.

The food was top class and as good as Michelin-starred restaurants I have visited. The number and quality of the amuse bouche was an excellent bonus. The staff in the bar and restaurant were very attentive and professional

What an amazing restaurant! The staff and kitchen were wonderful, the menu interesting, and the whisky pairings spot on. A special thank you to Javier who, from our first email through to our getting in the taxi at the end of the meal, was friendly, incredibly helpful, engaged and engaging. He made us feel special, and we felt that way about him.

Booked for Ruby Wedding Anniversary with a range of dietary needs including coeliac for which they both understood and managed beautifully without fuss! Food was excellent and the surprise tasters between courses added to the whole experience and were enjoyed by all.

I took a mixed group of whisky enthusiasts and novices to dine in the Library. The enthusiasts expressed delight at the unique experience and were appropriately appreciative of the whiskies on offer. We also found a malt that the novice enjoyed, and she was, if not 'converted' , at least open to the possibilities of malts being on her agenda in future

As a first timer, I highly recommend the Taster Menu with Whisky pairings. This was a fantastic experience and offered the best way to enjoy many of SMWS's whisky offerings. The chef and aficionados did an excellent job with pairing tastes and smells. I will certainly be back!

Service during the final courses was a little slow, and we waited nearly 15 minutes for the check after coffee. However, that will not stop me from returning, it was a fantastic experience.
