Dining at The Glasshouse

We are very happy to announce that from 6th February, our Observatory Restaurant will be opening on selected days between 6pm to 9:30pm for hotel guests to enjoy an exciting new dinner menu with us at the hotel. 

Using only the very best, locally sourced produce, we aim to deliver a range of seasonal, Scottish cuisines to satisfy even the most discerning of diners.


Breakfast is served daily in The Observatory from 7am to 11am. With beautiful views over Calton Hill, offering a wonderful opportunity to start your day with views of one of Edinburgh’s World Heritage Sites, whilst you tuck into our choice of Continental or full-Scottish a la carte breakfast. We also offer room service until 11am should you prefer.


Our afternoon tea menu is served daily between 1pm and 4pm in our cosy Snug, with its roaring open fire, and direct access to our two-acre roofgarden. We invite hotel guests to while away the afternoon with our range of delictible sweet treats and freshly prepared sandwiches. Prices start at £20 per person, or £24.95 including a glass of Prosecco. Please note, afternoon tea bookings need to be made 24 hours in advance. 


For hotel guests looking for a sumptuous dinner, we offer evening meals from our exciting new dinner menu within our Observatory Restaurant on selected days of the week. Alternatively, our Snug is available for dining throughout the week from our room service menu.

Our Head Chef's seasonal and locally sourced menus will give you a dining experience to remember. If you prefer, your meal can also be served to you in the comfort of your room. Enjoy your meal al fresco on your balcony overlooking the city, or your terrace facing on to the 2-acre roof garden with views of Calton Hill.
