After a major refurbishment the hotel's restaurant and bar, The Printing Press Bar & Kitchen opened in late 2015. The vision for the restaurant has been developed by one of London’s most respected restaurateurs, Des McDonald. With over 20 years’ experience running some of city’s most high profile establishments, he has shaped every aspect of The Printing Press from the concept, design and menu to bring a new restaurant experience to Edinburgh’s dining scene. The restaurant on George Street nods to the capital’s rich literary heritage: number 25 George Street was home in the 1780s to the acclaimed novelist Susan Ferrier, the equal of Jane Austen, according to Sir Walter Scott, and Robert Burns was a frequent visitor; late, in 1840, records show one John Oliphant living there – and Oliphant’s and Ferrier’s descendants founded Oliphant, Anderson and Ferrier, one of Scotland’s most prestigious publishing houses.

The Printing Press Bar & Kitchen showcases the exceptional quality of ingredients available in Scotland, creating contemporary takes on classic dishes. It is open 7 days a week offering breakfast, lunch and dinner, with a late-night bar until 01:00. Its late-night cocktail bar offers a collection of local spirits, from single malts to its own brand of Edinburgh gin and Scottish vodka.A great area for parties, The Editor’s Bar can accommodate up to 70 people and provides an elegant setting within a central location. A private bar with opulent booths provides the perfect recipe for an amazing party or drinks reception, whatever the occasion.
