Mrs Order and I are making the most of our kids going on a ski trip with the school. Anyone have any good tips for restaurants and stuff to do in Edinburgh?

Awesome vinyl store just off the golden mile. Got some cracking stuff there a couple of years back.

Around the uni there are some really nice 'earthy' places to eat. Can't recall names, but we ate well.

Poll: Tea bag or loose leaves?

I recommend going to the train station and buying a ticket to Glasgow.

To be fair Edinburgh is a nice place but the locals are completely up themselves. I might have to go up there soon anyway as my mate just got blown up and has now been airlifted back to a hospital there.

Rose Street and the agrass Market are both good for bars. Tiger Lilly is a nice cocktail bar/restaurant. It’s in George Street which runs parallel with Rose street.

Check out a bar called Panda & Sons. Speakeasy type place down stairs below what looks like an old school barbers shops. Really good vibe in there, great drinks and IMO fairly reasonably priced considering. The Dome is another pretty cool bar. Both on the swankier side if that floats your boat. Couple of nice pubs on the Grass market.

I thoroughly enjoyed the free walking tour. They meet outside Starbucks on the royal mile and it lasted about 2 hours. Very interesting place. Could check it out online.

Food wise a restaurant called STEAK is fantastic. Best steak in the city for me.

Of the two, I prefer Glasgow for the nightlife but Edinburgh has the nicer architecture.

Superb choice for a weekend.

When the wife and I go we always make a trip to https://thewitchery.com - enjoy a few drinks at the Bank Bar http://edinburgh247.com/city/edinburgh/restaurants/the-bank-bar/#.WmrP1nCnyEc and have the best Japenese I’ve had anywhere in the world at https://www.tangsgohan.com

Both are brilliant cities - we're have a week in Scotland in February and will be based near Edinburgh but are having a day in Glasgow and going to Celtic v Zenit. If you're about that day Glassers, we could have a beer or a cuppa!

To keep everyone happy take a trip to Shotts, it is bang in the middle between Glasgow and Edinburgh, has a wonderful prison and the best high street of metal shuttered shops I have ever encountered.

You might find this useful from when i asked the same question last year
Edinburgh by BlueinBrum 16 Jun 2017 10:42
Off to Edinburgh with lady brum today for the weekend.

Any suggestions for restaurants/things to do?

Please & thanks



Per my final comment, two suggestions would be
Restaurant called Field up near the uni
Comedy club called The Stand

Have a good one, it's a great place

Vietnam House restaurant is really good, it's near Haymarket. Best Vietnamese I've had. The Jolly Botanist just round the corner from there is a good bar too. Enjoy, I really like Edinburgh.
