Twenty Princes Street Sunday Roast

Sunday lunch at Twenty Princes St

2 Mins

The perfect end to a long week has always, in my opinion, been a Sunday lunch. So my prayers were answered as we exited Princes St stage left and ventured above ground level to the beautiful surrounds of Twenty Princes St overlooking Edinburgh's Old Town. Truthfully I’ve always been much happier watching shopping from a distance and preferably with a dauphinois on my fork.

To start, we ordered the Buccleuch Black Pudding and Haggis French Toast (£7.50) and the Beef Carpaccio (£10.50) with a bottle of Borsao Garancha (£19.50) to accompany. Delicately sized and delicious, they were just enough to whet our appetite. Onto the main event and you have the option of roasts to share (from £60) or, as we chose, individual plates. For me, it was the Slow Roasted Beef (£18) and for my dining partner the Shoulder of Lamb (£17). Boat-sized Yorkshire puddings were accompanied by honey glazed carrots; broccoli with a parmesan crumb; beef dripping roast potatoes and lashings of home-made gravy. As a side we added the Bone Marrow Dauphinoise (£5) which might have seemed like over-kill but honestly, they really weren't.

With just enough space left for something sweet, we shared a Dark chocolate and basil fondant (£7.50) and Banana Bread and Butter pudding (£7.50). Velvety rich and moreish, we fought right down to the last spoonful. 

Available every Sunday from noon, to book Tel: 0131 652 7370 or visit, 20 Princes St, Edinburgh EH2 2AN
