Bank Holiday Monday approaching!

As we sit here with the rain battering off our heads, yes we should wear hats but we’re just too busy, we realised we are heading for the August Bank Holiday.

It seems little different this year without the Edinburgh Festival footfall and buzz but nonetheless it is a day off for most and bookings are busying up.

So this is just a wee reminder to book your table sooner rather than later, we would hate you to be disappointed because of course Monday 31st is the last day of Eat Out To Help Out Rishi style. Boooo.

But the very next day we launch Eat Out To Help Out The Sequel Yeh!!  Which is exactly the same deal as before, eg 50% off everything on our menu (except alcohol), up to a maximum of £10 discount per diner. Valid every Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and we’ve added a Thursday too!

This deal is available in all three of our Edinburgh restaurants, Howies  Waterloo, Howies Victoria as well as our wee sister Scotts Kitchen which is open from 10am just above Howies Victoria Street on the beautiful Victoria Terrace.

Oh and please note  as a one off,  next Tuesday, Wednesday, 1st and 2nd September Howies Victoria Street will be closed as we complete our interior tweaks.




Howies Victoria Street Reopens Wednesday 19th August.

We are excited and delighted to announce Howies Victoria Street is reopening on Wednesday 19th August 2020….and that we are taking part in Eat Out To Help Out too…so what a great way to kick off!

We open for lunch 11.45 last reservation 2.30pm

We open for dinner 5pm last reservation 9.30pm

The team is making everything ship shape for our customers and team and inline with Howies Waterloo and Scotts Kitchen, Howies Victoria have also been awarded The Visit Scotland Good To Go green tick. Below you can see the day to day measures we have put in place and of course we will be following the ever changing Government Guidelines to the letter. 

The fun part  of all this is the menu which is being developed as you read, we are holding the tasting on Tuesday and are good to go go go on Wednesday!

Keep up to date with us on social media for all the details and some temping pics too as the kitchen gets fired up on Tuesday in preparation for reopening on Wednesday.

But for now it’s all about deep cleaning, fogging Saturday and Sunday,  reorganising our space so there is ample space between tables and  then we rebuild, and put everything back in situ so everyone feels confident and happy when we fling open our doors for business.

Have a great weekend! 


The Happy Smiling Howies Team.
