Went to the Piper’s Tryst as a group of 10 and had a superb night. Had Cullen Skink for a starter, fish and chips for main course and creme brulee for sweet. All three courses were excellent and I was most impressed with the dining experience, as were all of the company. Great food served by very pleasant staff, well worth a visit.

Tucked away from the noise, but close enough to walk everywhere, the Piper’s Tryst is in a great spot. A large, comfortable room with a monstrous bed and good facilities.
The small restaurant downstairs has excellent food and friendly, professional staff.
A perfect city stay.

Great restaurant and excellent food. The haddock risotto is the best I have had in a restaurant. Relaxed atmosphere and very friendly staff – no pushing additional sales or hurrying us up to leave! The deal we got is one of the best we have ever had on 5pm – we will definitely be back here.

“We stopped in here for our first meal in Scotland, and it was a good choice. The restaurant and the National Piping Centre was smaller than I expected. We shared the Pipe Major’s breakfast, which had it all: egg, tattie scone, potatoes, tomato, mushrooms, haggis, black pudding, sausage and bacon, along with an order of the smoked haddock with poached eggs. Everything was delicious, the smoked haddock remarkably so. I’m glad we got in some haggis and black pudding right at the start, because they are both very tasty, and it would have been a shame to not know that until our trip was about to end.”
