Conservatory Restaurant Edinburgh

If you're looking for a restaurant, Edinburgh has a fair few, but none so fine as the Conservatory Restaurant at the Aaron Lodge Guest House Hotel. Combining both mouthwatering, authentic Scottish cuisine with the airy, spacious, and laid back atmosphere of our glass house, the Conservatory Restaurant is the ideal place for a casual dinner with friends, a romantic supper with a loved one, or a lively celebratory event. Not hungry? No problem! Our bar area is ideal for enjoying a refreshing beer after a busy day sightseeing in Edinburgh.

What makes our Conservatory Restaurant so unique is the blend of succulent Scottish fare and spectacular service that you won’t find at any other restaurant nearby and if you're visiting the ERI, we're the nearest restaurant to the Edinburgh Royal Infirmary. During the day, our glass roof makes it feel as if you’re dining al fresco (even if it’s raining!), while at night the conservatory is one of the best places in the city to gaze out at the moon and stars without getting a chill. It’s this one-of-a-kind atmosphere that makes us the go-to place for all manner of occasions and parties.

Our talented Executive Chef and enthusiastic and skilled culinary and catering teams are happy to cater for parties and events for up to 60 guests. Our menu is simple yet vibrant, with plenty to suit all tastes and palates. We’re experienced in hosting birthdays, christenings, weddings, funerals, and more, so give us a call and see what we can do for you. We’re confident we can provide you with an unforgettable dining experience that will far exceed your expectations.

Conservatory Restaurant open Monday - Friday.
