About Wedgwood The Restaurant

Wedgwood the Restaurant is the eponymous restaurant from one of Scotland’s best loved and well respected chefs, Paul Wedgwood. Together with his wife Lisa they have created an award winning restaurant which is popular with locals and visitors to the city. Set in the heart of Edinburgh’s historical old town on the famous Royal Mile the restaurant rightly deserves its reputation as one of the best in the city & has a whole host of accolades to show for it.
In 2016 it was named “Best restaurant outside London” in the Food & Travel Reader awards beating a host of Michelin starred establishments to take the title. Add to that a listing in The Sunday Times’ Top 100 UK Restaurants, SLTN’s “Wine List of the Year” and  more than a handful of accolades & commendations from the UK’s top restaurant critics and guides and you can be guaranteed that a meal here is a very special culinary experience indeed.
Diners who indulge in the unique “deciding time” option upon arrival will be treated to a glass of Champagne and canapes while they take their time to peruse the menu. Paul’s seasonally changing menus never cease to amaze and delight; whether it is the two or three course lunch menu or the full a la carte, the innovation, skill and high quality ingredients shine right through all the dishes from Lobster thermidor crème brulee, bloody mary sorbet, parmesan shortbread to Venison, red cabbage, apple and black pudding bon bon, smoked beetroot, rowan to the final flourish of dessert which just might include the Very sticky toffee pudding, Caol ila butterscotch and vanilla ice cream.
Refurbished at the start of 2016 the restaurant is Paul and Lisa’s vision of their “perfect night out”: The chic dining room is light, bright, stylish and inviting featuring comfortable banquette seating and low lighting making the atmosphere both relaxing and intimate – the perfect setting in which to enjoy Paul’s outstanding menu and Lisa’s immaculately paired wines.

Wedgwood Restaurant review
10/10
It was a cold October evening in Edinburgh and we were excited about where we were going to warm our cockles and soothe our rumbling bellies. We were wondering down the Royal Mile, on the way to Holyrood, towards Wedgwood, the restaurant. Wedgwood is owned by Paul and Lisa Wedgwood. Paul has worked everywhere from pubs and leisure parks to fine dining Michelin-starred restaurants. It’s an award-winning restaurant, having previously been included in The Sunday Times Top 100 restaurants in the UK in 2015, based purely on guest reviews. Plus, their wine list was announced as the best in Scotland...

Fabulous experience, friendly and really engaging service, delicious food and superb (reasonably priced) wine. Lisa and her front of house team really know what customer service is all about.

If I keep recommending Wedgwood to everyone I know who's going to Edinburgh, you will become so crowded I will never be able to get in anymore!

Truly The best dining experience ever... Beautiful, calm, stylish ambience. Wonderful, friendly but discreet service and the food was just superb. Taste of Scotland tasting menu just kept delivering more and more incredible dishes which combined local ingredients with international flavours and innovative combinations and all for an extremely reasonable price. Loved, loved, loved it!

As regular Wedgwood diners and fans, food and service exceeded the high standards set by Paul and Lisa. Our large group of 6 adults and 2 children had all their individual dining preferences met. The wait staff continues to handle food orders and plate service professionally and with the best patience and attitude. Your recognition and ratings continue to be well deserved.

This has got to be one of Scotland's best restaurants. Seasonal menus, fresh ingredients, friendly and helpful service, and fabulous food. Get the canapés and champagne for the "deciding time" - they are beautiful, creative, and delicious little bites! We had haddock puree and scallops for starters (with crips from the haddock skin!), smoked salmon and venison for main courses, and lemon tarts and sorbet for desert. Even the inside of the restaurant is beautiful. We're California foodies that highly recommend this place!!

Top notch “wee tour of Scotland” with paired wines - a must when you visit Wedgwood. Every dish is amazing!

Excellent food and great service, very little to fault but if I were to dine there again I would request a table on the ground floor rather than in the basement.

Very good and well-presented food, with friendly and professional service. The restaurant is compact, in an excellent location, with a pleasant understated modern design. The express lunch menu in particular is excellent value for money.
