About The Doric

Edinburgh’s oldest ‘gastropub’ The Doric is also among its very finest. Dating back to the 18th century, this Market Place favourite has served locally sourced food and remains true to its roots to this very day, offering Scotland’s most celebrated dishes. The Doric’s dining room encloses its diners in claret-tinted warmth, rustic scrubbed floors accompanied by swagged curtains, the day’s specials scribbled on a blackboard, traditional in décor but without any sign of twee-ness. Likewise the menu balances Scottish tradition with contemporary tastes, changing with culinary fashion without trying too hard to impress. An a la carte menu is complimented by always popular roast dinners and a long list of blended whiskeys and malts.

We had an excellent meal at the Doric. The Cullen Skink was out of this world! Both of us had Rib eye steaks and they were good. The service was great even though the restuarant was busy. Will go again.

Friendly, relaxed service. Well presented and prepared food.

The Doric in the heart of Edinburgh delivers on taste and quality as a hidden gem just of the Royal Mile. This bistro is hidden away on Market St and is perfect to attract visitors for both the New Town and Old Town. No the cheapest but the quality and size of the portions feel you are not being ripped off. Worth a visit for good Scottish food. I will be back!

The Doric was pleasant. Great service

special meal for new year eve 35£ at the Doric (Edinburgh) great food and great service, in a very quiet restaurant room. Definitively a very good value. You can finish the meal with a drink downstair.

Doric Edinburgh - lovely, many thanks

Met up wth some old friends at The Doric in Edinburgh. My friend had the set Christmas menu which was good value at £25 for 3 courses (we shared the Christmas pud which was lovely). Mussel starter was average - many mussels closed and sauce was Ok but not great. Main course of prawn linguine was tasty and other main courses went down well. Evening wasn't great for a chat as there were a couple of big Christmas party tables which were very noisy.

the doric edinburgh.

service was excelant

food was good

wine list was adequite but cheapest wine was expensive for the quality of the wine

A bit rushed last night even though the restaurant was empty. Food was okay but having the courses forced on you in quick succession made for a less enjoyable evening.

The Doric - Edinburgh. Our first visit to this establishment and enjoyed it. Simple decor, restaurant is upstairs and not overcrowded; we had (one of the best) tables by the window, such tables we were informed are "often reserved for those who book in advance". Food was lovely (particularly recommend mussels starter). Staff very attentive. We would return.

Great food and ambiance! try the haggis

Doric, Market St, Edinburgh Attractive dining room, attentive, pleasant staff; food tasty enough but overpriced for what it was

The Doric is one of my favourite places to eat. Lunch was excellent although a little pricey as we went during the Edinburgh festival.

The starters were tasty but a bit meaty for my personal liking, but the main course choice is excellent.

Would recommend this restaurant.

The Doric was the perfect place for an early pre-theatre dinner - good gastro pub food, nice and busy and great staff. Would come again.

Good service, Good Value, Good Location, Food wasnt disappointing but wasnt overly exciting. Tables were cramped and sticky, glasses and cutlery were stuck to the table when we arrived. Gents toilet very small.

Our visit to the Doric in Edinburgh was very enjoyable.The munu was nicely varied and the food and service excellent.

My husband and I really enjoyed our dinner at The Doric in Edinburgh. It was a great first meal in Scotland. My steak, fries, and mushrooms were excellent, and my husband says that his fish and chips were the best he had ever had.

It was a celebration dinner at the Doric for our grandson who had just graduated with a first in physics at Edinburgh university. We had chosen well and we all enjoyed our evening.

With five friends I recently had lunch at the Doric, Edinburgh. We l enjoyed our meals and the service was first class. It offers traditional pub food as well as hints of fine dining. The Scottish dishes were up to standard. I note haggis was popular with the tourists there who appeared to enjoy it. However Gents toilet experience could be improved. (Girls one okay, I am told!)

The Doric in Edinburgh provided us with good quality food with a nod to Scottish fare in comfortable pub like surroundings.
