The Dome

14 George St, Edinburgh EH2 2PF, UK


The Dome is the kind of place Hercule Poirot might dine with an associate just before something truly awful happens. Its famous skylight dome dominates but columns, ornate iron-paned windows, chandeliers and magnificent flower arrangements complete the scene. Fortunately for Edinburgh diners, the Dome’s friendly and efficient staff run a smooth ship where nothing as untoward as a misplaced fork occurs. The Grill Room menu reflects this, offering solid takes on all the Scottish classics. The haggis is specially made by Lothian butcher Hornigs and is presented as a neat starter, nicely wrapped in filo pastry. All the meat and fish are sourced locally, and the Angus venison fillet is lightly seasoned and delicately cooked, complementing tasty gratin potatoes – only a wee blue cheese bon bon feels a bit odd. Surly teenagers forced into a posh suit aren’t forgotten and might even crack a smile when they spot the massive Dome burger with a mound of chips. Desserts include a lovely lightly poached pear sweetened with butterscotch sauce. Afternoon tea is on offer in the separate Georgian tea room.
