My Philosophy

Here at the Scottish Arts Club in Edinburgh a warm welcome, good food and an enjoyable dining experience is all part of the philosophy we believe in.

I have a broad experience of world cuisines but love to experiment with new ideas, so both our members and guests can expect regularly changing menus with a variety of home-made foods ranging from comfort to sophistication. We believe everyone should be able to enjoy delicious food so vegetarian guests and those with special dietary requirements are always welcome at our tables.

Steve's Signature Dish

Lobster Thermidor. A basic interpretation of a classic! Boiled and cracked lobster, served with a sticky bisque of onion, fennel, garlic and tomato, and Sauce Mornay.

Lunch is served from Tuesday to Saturday, 12.30 to 2.00pm and snacks are served at other times in the Club Room. Lunches, dinners and suppers are arranged after many events. All members are asked to book for lunch and all special events.


The McTaggart Room

Named after the renowned Scottish landscape painter, Sir William McTaggart (1835-1910), the McTaggart Room is a charming space, ideal for private functions such as lunch or dinner parties, receptions and business meetings. When set up for dining, the McTaggart Room can accommodate 26 diners. For larger parties, the space can be opened up to include the Peploe Dining Room.

The Peploe Dining Room

This part of the dining room has a bright and welcoming ambiance and is the Club's main dining facility. It overlooks the delightful gardens of Rutland Square and is graced by some of the Club's many fine paintings. Used mainly for lunches and dinners, the Peploe Dining Room can accommodate 30 persons, increasing to 56 when opened up to include the adjacent McTaggart Room.


Private Events

The Scottish Arts Club is a great place for functions. Start the evening with a welcoming glass of Prosecco in the Club Room, followed by a 3-course dinner or a buffet in our Dining Room. Our lovely Steward is always happy to help plan the perfect evening.

The Club is available to hire for our Members. For availability and prices, contact the Office at any time.
