For the same price, vegetarians can choose from their own six course menu which shares the same seasonal Scottish ingredients heritage.

Cannonball owner, Carina Contini, said the new menu offers an opportunity to share one of Edinburgh’s most iconic settings along with Scotland's seasonal larder.

“We love showcasing this truly beautiful building. Enjoy cocktails in our bar before dinner and then take in the stunning views upstairs and enjoy six beautifully balanced dishes, available with matching wines. It’s a very special, relaxed and great value evening out.

“We work with over 60 artisan producers and we wanted to give them a stage to show what they can do. The tasting menu is a journey across Scotland sharing how wonderful our produce is. It is a great way to get a sense of our natural larder, according to the seasons.

“Everything we serve at Cannonball has been grown, raised or caught in Scotland and we are incredibly proud of that”, said Carina.

The tasting menu begins with an amuse bouche, homemade bread and whipped butter and a 10 year old Glengoyne whisky to prepare the way for the feast of Scotland ahead. A specially selected drinks pairing is available with each course.
