Our flagship restaurant Howies Waterloo remains open 7 days a week.
Restricted hours from 11.30 until 6pm and no booze but other than that….it’s business as usual!
Lara and team are looking forward to welcoming you in to enjoy our new Autumn menu all the seasonal goodies you expect from your local restaurant.
At this time of year we all need a virtual hug as we are not able to give a real one, and to this end we have launched the Howies Roast on a Sunday. Mmmmm. BOOK NOW
The Roast will vary, from Scottish Beef to Scottish Lamb for the meat eaters and a deliciously bespoke Vegetarian Roast for those who prefer not to eat meat.
The accompaniments are staying the same week to week, the main reason being we are all hooked on these extraordinary Yorkshire puds….just look at these little beauties and tell me you’re not licking your lips.
Tier 3 is where we stay for the moment so our opening hours remain 11.30am until 6pm.
During the rollercoaster that is November 2020 in Edinburgh we have temporarily closed Howies Victoria Street.
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.
At 10am this. morning Scotts Kitchen reopens!
Our south facing terrace is the place to be for coffee, snacks, drinks or something more substantial to eat....the joy of sitting in the heart of Edinburghs Old Town over looking what is generally believed to Europes most beautiful Street, Victoria Street cannot be over estimated.
Booking for this toasty spot is recommended…..BOOK NOW.
Yes the streets are quieter just now for obvious reasons but the air is clear, the sky is blue and the remarkable smells coming out of our kitchen as the team get ready for your arrival…..defy description…so chop chop!
Head down off the High Street, or the Royal Mile if we’re being formal, and take a left just before Victoria Street, it’s a traffic free, haven….
A new menu, a new normal, a new day….we can’t wait to see you!
And don’t forget your SPF!!
