My friend and I visited on 9 February for afternoon tea. We chose the prosecco afternoon tea, and after a lengthy wait, 2 glasses of flat and lukewarm prosecco finally arrived. When the sandwiches were eventually served, they were slightly stale and beginning to curl. The vegetarian selection was uninspiring - dry white bread and grated cheddar anyone? I ordered... More

We received an afternoon tea voucher as a gift and it was really lovely. Water as soon as we sat down (free) and didn't wait too long on everything arriving. Prosecco was great, selection of sandwiches and cakes was varied and more than enough. We were stuffed by the end but still had room for tea! My fish sandwich was... More

I went with my boyfriend who was taking me out and everything was just lovely! We were actually a little late for our reservation but they still had our table and quickly seated us in a lovely table at the end of the restaurant. The atmosphere was lovely! Dimmed lights, good music and candles. The cocktails were fresh and fantastic... More

The whole evening was outstanding. The staff were discreet and attentive; never letting anything slip. Really helpful. Food was fantastic - we all enjoyed everything and we were a group of 11. The library area was ideal to have a conversation (we asked to have music turned down and it was no problem), whilst still feeling the atmosphere of the... More

I came for a meal/drinks for my 21st on 25/01/17 with friends and couldn't have asked for a better night. Food and service were excellent, which resulted in us going back on the 26/01/17 for drinks! Special thanks to Seli for being a great waitress and I would highly recommend the 'Nightingale' cocktail! Thanks again Tigerlily, I will be back!

Went for lunch with a couple of friends. We opted for the sandwiches with fries, I had the Tiger club (£10) and I would have preferred the sandwiches to be quartered rather than halved, easier to eat. Surroundings are fabulous, waitress was pleasant and would eat here again. We had the sparkling Chandon Rose went down very well.

Staying in New Town

Neighbourhood Profile
New Town
Suits and shopping bags rule the streets of New Town, until after dark when strappy dresses come out to play. This is the city’s central business district with its smaller offices, clothes boutiques, and many of the city’s flashiest restaurants and ritziest clubs. The architecture along roads like George Street helps give it a swank and formal feel: it’s a planned Georgian development of regal townhouses, geometric squares, and self-important statues. But it’s also a very wanderable neighbourhood, with a healthy bustle at almost any time of day and fine people-watching in places like St Andrew's Square which fills with picnickers around lunch. You’ll also find a series of cheerful basement bistros on Hanover Street, while dark Rose Street has something of the feel of an undiscovered back alley and is chock-full of characterful pubs and small independent shops.
