Cannonball House opened in 2014 by married couple Victor and Carina Contini, who also run long established Edinburgh favorite Contini George Street as well as the popular cafe and restaurant inside the Scottish National Gallery.

The building is split over three levels. The restaurant is located on the top floor with an iconic backdrop that serves the best Scottish food with stunning views of the Edinburgh skyline and our next-door neighbour Edinburgh Castle. A seasonal tasting menu offers a delicious peak into Scottish cuisine.

Cannonball Bar is located on street level, serving over 150 Scotch whiskies has become a firm favourite whisky bar for locals as well as visitors from further afield.

Our private dining room, The Glengoyne room, is located on the lower ground floor and offers fantastic private dining for groups of 15 to 40 guests. Perfect for birthday celebrations, whisky tasting dinners and weddings.
