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...

I booked for Christmas lunch with colleagues and the festive menu did not disappoint. The staff were extremely friendly and the food was fabulous. The restaurant was really busy but this didn’t negatively impact on the service. Another brilliant experience, highly recommended.

A wonderful restaurant, small and personal, with wonderful attentive service. I went with my sister for her birthday, and the food was beautiful, fresh and flavoursome, and we were made to feel very special during our visit. When I return to Edinburgh, I’ll definitelt be going back, and I recommend this to everyone without reservation.

We are so happy we chose Wedgewood for my husband’s special birthday. Our visit was faultless - from the initial online reservation process through to leaving when we were ready, rather than feeling rushed out. The food was tremendous and the service friendly knowledgable and efficient. We have had a lot of fine dining experiences and this was up there with the best. Thank you so much - we can’t wait to come back. Rosie, Steve and family.

Food was fantastic, such a varied set menu that we all struggled to decide. But I can't thank the staff enough, 2 of our party had newborns and they couldn't have been more helpful. Firstly making sure there was room for a buggy next to the table and even offering to hold the babies to allow the mothers to eat. They are truly a credit to your restuarant.

Each time I have eaten here the food has be exceptional. The variety and presentation is wonderful. The lunch menu is amazing value for the quality of the food . The combinations that the chef thinks of are always interesting. Sure you could get more food else where , sure you could get bigger portions but would you want to....I don't think so , one of my favourite restaurants in Edinburgh with staff to match .

Love this restaurant. Have been there 3 times and have the same meal as it’s so fantastic. I have the scallops to start & venison steak for mail & the cheese platter to finish off. The chef certainly knows how to cook venison. Well done Wedgewood I will be back. Soon....

We had a lovely night at Wedgwood. The Wee tour of Scotland menu was great, the wines of the wine menu matched perfectly, and the service was great. If any the portion sizes could be a little bit bigger, but mainly because the food was so good that I would have loved to have more.

Wow! Absolutely amazing from start to finish. This is my second visit and first with the taster menu and I was just as amazed as last time. The staff were attentive and friendly, they dealt with a food allergy so well, replacing a dish with something just as delicious as everyone else had! They took time to explain each dish and the matching wines, it felt like such a personal experience. The restaurant is small which I think is what helps to make it such a good experience, we at no point felt rushed in any of our 7 courses. I aim to go back again as it is the best restaurant I have ever eaten in.
