About The Dining Room
The Dining Room at 28 Queen Street welcomes new faces and old friends with traditional fine dining paired with culinary invention, expertly prepared by our chef James Freeman. Enjoy distinguished flavours with personable service in our relaxed, refined Georgian dining room.
We had a wonderful evening at SMWS! Superb whisky pairings, food, and service. We were a little disappointed that the five course taster menu was not available when we arrived. We made our booking months in advance specifically for the five course taster menu based on the times provided on the website, but were informed upon ordering that it was too late. We ordered Á La Carte and everything was delicious! We would love to join the society but shipping is not available where we live in the US (North Carolina). We really enjoyed your unique and “curious” approach to whisky tasting and how it brings people together. Looking forward to visiting again next time we are in Edinburgh!
Our first visit and the dining rooms were a treat. Fabulous Adams decor were an ideal surrounding for excellent food and welcoming staff.
The service was very good (attentive and polite) and the food was delicious (we were not expecting it to be so good). Will be back and will recommend to friends as a venue.
Phenomenal food!! Definitely worth going for the experience. The staff was so attentive. And that's off to the chef. I was a vegan and the chef have me the most amazing five course meal. Will be coming back.
Had some friends in who were visiting from the States. Excellent meal and service.
Excellent lunch. Very helpful and informative waiter. Beautiful dining room with views over Queen St Gardens.
Beautifully prepared and presented food, superb selection of whisky, relaxed atmosphere, attentive yet unfussy staff. In comparison with other dining rooms attempting a similar standard the value for money is excellent.
excellent service, food was glorious and had a very attentive yet relaxed experience. highly recommended
Great food and a super atmosphere. Thanks to Hannah and the team for arranging our event for 30 guests, many from overseas. We will be back!
Excellent experience all around. It was my second time back and I would gladly go again.
This was our first visit to The Dining Room, as we have just joined the SMWS, & it was fabulous. Our 3 course meal was as good as any meals we had in our 11 day trip thru Scotland. The Scotches were the best & our servers - Hanna & a tall young man were superb. We will tell all our customers to join The SMWS & go to The Dining Room!! Stan Stack

Great dining experience, can’t wait to return.
Great experience all round. Will definitely be back.
Absolutely lovely experience, all the way from service to food to whisky.
Nil to add
Really impressed with the service, we felt like truly honoured guests. The food was delicious and every dish beautifully presented. I’ll be back!
Delicious food. Menu du jour is great quality and very good value. Wines chosen were also very good.
I suspect bread was not freshly baked that day but otherwise excellent and unbelievable value.
Excellent as usual.
