Cranston's Restaurant is located in central Edinburgh in the Old Waverley Hotel. The restaurant offers some of the best views in the city and specialises in traditional Scottish cuisine using local ingredients where possible.

Thanks to its prime location on Princes Street, Cranston's Restaurant is the perfect place for dinner or a spot of lunch while exploring the city. If visiting for lunch, options include delicate Highland smoked Scottish salmon to start, followed by West Coast grilled haddock or chicken supreme with red wine jus. The evening menu features starters of warm honey roasted duck and homemade fish cakes, mains of pan fried rack of lamb and North Atlantic baked salmon fillet. Vegetarian options are also available in the form of grilled aubergine to start and chef's wild mushroom penne pasta as a main. Guests should save space for dessert too, with a tempting selection including indulgent sticky toffee pudding and decadent chocolate lumpy bumpy fudge cake.

Built in the first half of the 19th Century, The Old Waverley Hotel is one of Edinburgh's oldest hotels and something of an institution. It was originally built by the restaurant's namesake Robert Cranston and was known simply as the Waverley Hotel until he built the New Waverley Hotel in Waterloo Place. The dining room at Cranston's Restaurant has been recently refurbished and offers diners an elegant and relaxed atmosphere, perfect for a meal with family or friends. Tables by the window guarantee stunning views over the green city of Edinburgh and the castle. The restaurant couldn't be easier to get to either, located just a few steps away from Waverley Station.

Whether booking an intimate meal with a loved one, or celebrating a special occasion with a larger group - and this is a popular graduation restaurant - Cranston's Restaurant is the ideal location for a memorable meal and unforgettable views.
