Hotel dining in the heart of Edinburgh’s bustling Southside
This review is taken from the 2013 edition.
While it might be primarily geared up to cater for visitors staying in one of its 77 rooms, Ten Hill Place has enough individuality to make it worth a visit for those who already have a bed in the city to call their own. The plum and white dining room and the bright, modern wine bar – both the product of a recent refurbishment – are comfortable, pleasing spaces, although neither quite shakes off the hotel vibe. The food, however, largely avoids a similar fate. Bar options include a number of tapas-style snack plates and more unexpected dishes like goulash and a croque Norvégien, while the restaurant menu sheds most of the shackles of typical hotel catering, showing some ambition with dishes like trio of rabbit and confit fillet of trout, even if they feature some incongruous elements (a clam and rabbit miso and dill sorbet respectively). Claims to be sustainable, seasonable and local are bolstered by the use of ingredients like rainbow trout, kale and forced rhubarb, although an accompaniment of griddled asparagus suggests they haven’t quite perfected their sourcing policy yet.
- High point: Unfailingly cheerful and attentive staff
- Low point: Neither the noise from the kitchen or the smooth jazz interpretations of 'classics' do much for the atmosphere
