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...

Super service from the initial booking to the meal itself. Staff were warm and welcoming, providing lots of information but never intrusive. Thank you so much for a wonderful experience.

We booked the private room for 15 people and had a wonderful lunch and a very enjoyable afternoon. The food is superb, the service is excellent and the restaurant has a lovely atmosphere. We can’t wait to come back.

Really fabulous meal. Food was of the highest quality and better than a Michelin star restaurant I dined in earlier this year. Lovely relaxed atmosphere in the restaurant. Only thing, and it's just a tiny thing, would be to feel like it was OK to stay on for a couple of drinks or coffee after the meal. Didn't feel rushed to leave but didn't feel particularly encouraged to stay...wasn't offered additional coffee or drinks.

Went for lunch with a friend and was hugely impressed by the service, quality of food and the price. The only negative was how cold it was in the restaurant

Another fabulous meal at Wedgwood. Food and service cannot be faulted. Venison,as always, was sensational and the veal and its meaty bon bon was fantastic. Keep up the good work.

This was our third visit to Wedgwood. We live in London and Wedgwood is definitely on our list of restaurants to visit when in Edinburgh. The food is delicious, refined and very good value for the quality of the cooking. The staff are welcoming and knowledgable. We had a great evening.

What a nice place! Food is not cheap, but very good. A wonderful ambiance. The cellar definitely looked a bit less atmospheric, be sure to get a table upstairs.

The restaurant is noisy. The desert was a deception. Starters and mains were good. A good adresse in the old Town.

We have been to Wedgwood a number of times now, and for us no visit to Edinburgh is complete without a meal at Wedgwood. The atmosphere and service is second to none, the staff are so friendly and attentive in a really subtle and warm way. The food...oh the food...where do I start? The food is phenomenal, a menu based around seasonal produce, absolutely packed with flavour and presented beautifully. The staff are also really knowledgable about the menu so are happy to point you in the right direction. The food is beautifully accompanied by a wonderful wine list. I really can’t rate Wedgwood highly enough and already can’t wait for our next visit and will definitely be indulging in the tasting menu and paired wines next time

Our favourite bargain lunch menu in Edinburgh, in the face of some excellent competition. But just a bit more classy cooking than the opposition. And an excellent wine list.
