Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2019 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £5.95 (+p&p).

You could live a lifetime in Edinburgh and not come across Ten Hill Place, which is tucked down a side street in the city’s Southside. That would be a shame as the hotel and restaurant run by the Royal College of Surgeons is a very pleasant place to grab a bite to eat, especially before or after a concert at the Queens Hall. A 2018 renovation and expansion has seen it open a new modern restaurant with a creative Scottish menu. Starters range from scallops to a fresh and tasty tartare of Highland beef with toasted aioli ciabatta. Garlic lovers will enjoy an unusual and filling chicken Kiev that oozes truffle butter and comes with a flavoursome fettucini. Guinea fowl breast, nicely roasted on a bed of mixed grains and savoy cabbage, will suit smaller appetites, or there’s a good choice of steaks for traditionalists. A child-like joie de vivre suffuses the dessert menu, so leave room for the simply lovely rhubarb soufflé with a pink rose of candy floss.
