Wedgwood – A Modern Scottish Dining Experience

A recent weekend in Edinburgh allowed me the opportunity to sample the wares on offer at Wedgwood; one of Edinburgh’s fine dining restaurants.

Having opened five years ago, Chef and co-owner Paul Wedgwood has created an unpretentious atmosphere coupled with excellent (and inventive) dishes.  On their website they place emphasis on the fact that they do not “turn” tables, therefore diners are allowed to relax and enjoy their meal for as long as they wish without the feeling of being rushed.

Wedgwood is found in the Old Town on the Royal Mile; however it is far removed from the ‘touristy’ restaurants found in the area.  How about king scallops with cauliflower korma, pistachio and peanut dust for starters?  Followed by an equally unique creation of wild deer with haggis, herbed barley, pickled squash and truffled jus?  To add to the distinctive dining experience, be sure to order a side of wild foraged leaves when available – you won’t receive the usual side salad!

Tip – try to request a table which is on the street-level as the downstairs level doesn’t offer the any natural light.
