Festive at Townhouse 

The festive season is a special time in Edinburgh, with the cobbled streets dusted in snow and twinkling lights lit around the city from dusk. At Townhouse the fire will be stoked, the smell of homemade mince pies spilling into the lobby, and Champagne chilling on ice. 


Let the festive fun commence!

Throughout the month of December our à la carte menu in The Spence highlights the changing season, embracing the best of winter produce alongside our signature dishes. Come in out of the cold and kick start your festive plans with warming winter dishes or celebrate the season in style with a cosy Hot Buttered Rum tipple, or Veuve Clicquot & blood orange sparkling aperitif.
