We are proud to announce our first place position at the top of this years’ Out To Lunch Soil Association Visitor Attractions League Table!


Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh has shot up the league table to claim first place – Bravo! Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh is all about quality ingredients. The adult and child menus include veg that has been organically grown on-site in their Market Garden, while many of the other ingredients are sourced locally and from within Scotland. All their meat is farm assured and the fish on the menu is sustainable. And not only this, their meals are delicious! Our secret diners reported a fun-filled day out, learning about the many plants in the gardens before then eating the many tasty plants on offer in the restaurant.

Do they serve fresh food you can trust?

Do they offer a healthy choice?

How family-friendly is it?
