The Newsroom


A cracking Edinburgh haunt for all your drinking and dining needs, be that cool concoctions or classic gorging, this is one of the only occasions that we'd recommend you'd listen to the news. The Newsroom that is. 

Split between three sumptuous spaces, a main bar, restaurant area and downstairs club space, The Newsroom is something of a Jack of all trades in Edinburgh. Boasting fresh and contemporary interiors, where white furniture, walls laced in and fresh plants reign supreme, The Newsroom is a homage to all things charming. Heading to 511 downstairs? Expect ambient lighting, lush booths and all the space that a private party could hope for. 

So you've made the sensible decision to dine at The Newsroom, but what can you expect? With fresh, international dishes to tuck into there's a little something for everyone, be that a Texan Burger brimming with home-made chilli and jalapenos for just £10, or a rich herb crusted salmon with creamed kale and leek sauce at £9. Cocktails? These are top fare at Newsroom with palates being pleasured by the likes of a French Martini for just £6, or a Passionberry Fizz for the same price. Looking for other tipples to wet that whistle? There's craft beers, local draught and international wines to tuck into too.
