Modern Scottish Brasserie
A welcoming brasserie located in the heart of Edinburgh, One Square offers a modern Scottish take on drinking and dining. Open from early in the morning until the wee small hours, this is a place to enjoy local and seasonal produce in perfectly relaxed surroundings.
From the well-stocked bar to the ever-popular tables overlooking Edinburgh Castle, One Square is somewhere to spend leisurely afternoons, to meet with friends for dinner or sit out on the terrace and sip a perfectly-poured G&T.
The simple yet memorable name, One Square, was inspired our iconic address, One Festival Square. As the host of the world’s biggest arts festival every summer, Edinburgh is celebrated worldwide as the Festival City, and One Square is at the centre of it all.
Modern, seasonal and honest, the One Square menu features an inventive range of Scottish favourites, with an ever-changing selection of signature dishes on offer. From prime ribeye steak and Atlantic hake to Shetland mussels, the focus is firmly on the finest Scottish ingredients, and we have forged links with local suppliers to ensure that our produce is fresh, traceable, and delicious.
Although the atmosphere is informal, service is never anything but professional, and with a private room for up to forty guests, One Square is just as suited to a special celebration as it is to a working lunch, a quick bite to eat between shops or an indulgent afternoon tea. For an even more memorable experience, there is always the option of Dining at The Pass, where you can watch our chefs apply the finishing touches to your dishes just before they are served.
When it comes to drinks, One Square is famed for its extensive selection of gin, with more than 90 different varieties available behind the bar, including our very own One Square Gin made by hand by Pickering’s at Summerhall Distillery. Whether recommending local distillers such as Edinburgh Gin, Blackwoods and Caorunn, or singing the praises of classics such as Tanqueray 10, our expert bartenders are passionate about their craft. While gin is a house speciality, our wine list has also been expertly considered, not to mention our refreshingly varied selection of Scottish beer.
See you in the Square!
