Festive Season in Edinburgh

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 fires are stoked, the smell of homemade mince pies fill the lobby and Champagne is chilling on ice. 

Let the festive fun commence!


The Spence Festive Menu

Expect warming winter dishes that embrace the change in season and the very best produce. There’s Wild Game Terrine or Heritage Beetroot to start. For main, dive into a hearty serving of Gnocci with heritage pumpkin or Venison Loin served with potato puree & red cabbage. 


The Breakfast Sarnie

We’ve joined forces with Edinburgh cult favourite – Alby’s – to bring you a festive breakfast sandwich that settles all sandwich debates once and for all.⁠ Available exclusively in The Spence until the end of December, it’s crammed full of porchetta made with pork, sage & cranberry stuffing, The Spence brown sauce, matchstick crisps, celeriac & apple remoulade and rocket. Served on Alby’s signature focaccia, freshly baked in-house.

Magical Christmas at The Spence

This year, as Townhouse transforms into an enchanted forest inspired by Scottish folklore, join us in The Spence for a truly special Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. Carol singers will serenade from the grand staircase and live music will fill The Spence. Meanwhile, let us take care of the cooking this Christmas Day as our menu transforms to feature Champagne, lobster, turkey and Christmas pudding – all served amidst a dazzling display and with festive buzz filling the air.
