Gluten Free Restaurants in Edinburgh - The Doric

If you are living a gluten free life, then as you and I know - eating out in any unfamiliar city can be rather daunting. It's always a huge relief when you find an Edinburgh restaurant that has a well marked Gluten Free Menu, and with many of their dishes GF (not just salads and baked potatoes). They even have GF bread.

If you are looking for a restaurant in Edinburgh with a nice Gluten Free Menu then after recently eaten here ourselves we highly recommend 'The Doric Tavern'. This is located just down from the Royal Mile on Market Street, just 2 minutes walk from Princes Street. You will find a cosy restaurant upstairs that offers fine dining, from fish to steak, and a super amount of gluten free options. Childs menu available.

You can visit their website and reserve a table in their bistro here

Short breaks in Edinburgh over Christmas

The German Markets are returning to Edinburgh from the 17th November through to the New Year. Along with these markets, there are many other festive events, activities, and craft fairs through the holiday season. A particular favourite of ours is the Christmas Arts and Craft fair held at the Assembly Rooms in George Street, this will be on the 2nd and 3rd December.
