1) Café Royal Circle Bar (19 West Register Street, EH2 2AA)
This bar has been here since 1863 and the ambiance of history, stained glass and ceramic murals makes it an experience as much as a bar.
2) The Witchery by the Castle (Castlehill, Royal Mile, EH1 2NF)
For a good meal in an evocative space, head here where there are two dining rooms: one dark and Gothic, the other a Secret Garden. It’s not cheap but it’s worth it for the historic setting – and the delicious food.
