Hotel dining in the heart of Edinburgh’s bustling Southside
In the heart of Edinburgh’s Southside, Ten Hill Place nestles in a peaceful Georgian oasis just off the ever-bustling Nicholson Street. Owned by the Royal College of Surgeons, profits are re-invested into the College. Maroon walls, thick-pile carpets and cosy seating bode well, but these touches struggle to compete with a brightly lit kitchen pass, breakfast buffet station and incongruous background music. Popular with tourists and conference attendees and priding itself on the use of local and seasonal produce, the menu is appealing. Tartare of Highland venison loin with confit egg yolk looks pretty but the seasoning is inconsistent, while breast of wild grouse with Stornoway black pudding displays cheffy techniques and processes which don’t quite live up to the well-sourced ingredients. The keenly priced wine list is the star of the show, featuring an impressive 28 wines by the glass as well as the ‘Surgeon’s Cellar’ selection of classic French vintages at their peak.
- High point: A great wine list
- Low point: The menu never quite lives up to expectations
