The Chaumer Teahouse and Bar
A stunning Queen Street tea room and wine bar that prides itself on its brilliant breakfasts and charcuterie platters.
Initially conceived as a sort of glorious waiting room for customers of the adjoining Stewart Christie and Co tailors and guests of the rooms above, the Chaumer it has already grown into a far more special venue in its own right. The menu boasts a roll call of respected Scottish producers from Jarvis Pickle pies to Glutteny cakes alongside sandwiches and salads prepared onsite, with an extensive choice of teas and an approachable wine list. Asparagus and barley salad is flavoured with an unobtrusive dressing that allows for the vividly fresh ingredients to speak for themselves, while the smoked cheese and Puddledub ham grilled sandwich is satisfyingly comforting. The setting, with its ornate cornices and quintessential New Town architecture, feels special while service strikes the elusive balance of true professionalism and genuine warmth.
