Sat on Festival Square, One Square will combine the offerings of both their Bar and Brasserie to provide an elegant journey through the evening.
Champagne on arrival is the only place to start. With the perfect blend of Scottish and luxury to accompany: canapés of Haggis bonbons with onion chutney, smoked salmon blini with caviar & crème fraiche and a beetroot & feta tartlet.
The 5-course menu that follows explores the very best of Scotland’s natural larder, and truly personifies the farm-to-fork culture at One Square. From the hand-dived scallops of Orkney, to the Highland fillet of beef. The perfect accompaniment could quite possibly be one of the variety of local Edinburgh gin’s the One Square bar has to offer.
And this is how your evening will continue, as the fireworks light up the Edinburgh skyline, and the bells ring out, guests are invited to the Pickering’s Terrace. See the New Year in with their choice of Hot Toddy, or a Pickering’s Sloe Gin cocktail using one of Summerhall Distillery’s finest exports from just across The Meadows.
For those with a bit more festivity still left in their stockings, the night doesn’t have to end there, as the resident One Square Bar DJ will entertain guests until 2am for you to dance the night away.
Gather with family and friends to start the year as you mean to go on with the impressive New Year’s Day buffet. If you’re a fan of the famous Sunday Lunch at One Square, this New Year’s Day offering takes things to the next level! With champagne on arrival, the usual impressive selection of terrines, verrines and more to start, as well as an elevated choice of prime cuts, and all the trimmings you could wish for; I just hope you’ve left room to indulge in the mouth-watering selection of desserts!
Jazz band Viper Swing will of course be there to entertain you throughout your lunch, as well as the ice-cream cart and chocolate fountain that puts a smile on faces both young and young-at-heart.
If you’ve already got your plans in place for Hogmanay, or have unfortunately missed out on availability at One Square, do not fear as there are a number of other festive offerings available this Christmas.
The recently launched Winter a la carte menu has some wonderfully intriguing options such as the Rabbit & pistachio terrine and Highland Wood Pigeon risotto. The usual high quality 8oz Scottish beef cuts are of course available, as well fan favourites such as braised ox cheek and house-oak smoked loch salmon.
Running alongside the a la carte this winter is the Festive Dining menu, perfect for your office Christmas parties or those looking for a bargain warming lunch this Christmas. 2 courses for £26 or 3 courses for £32 when there are options such as a full roast turkey Christmas lunch and mulled poached winter fruits available is an option too good to turn down!
If you’re looking for something a little more celebratory, you can also indulge in One Square’s festive afternoon tea offering. This year’s selection includes their most creative offering yet with an original take on some of your festive favourites such as yule logs and miniature Stollen cakes.
Vegan and kids alternatives are available throughout the period, but do book ahead to avoid disappointment for any of the options mentioned here!
The offering at One Square has been propelled to the forefront of hospitality in Edinburgh over recent months with the exciting new launch of their innovative new cocktail menu alongside the return of their unique gin-tastings (that are paired with incredible gin-spired seasonal canapes!); each cocktail has been curated to pay homage to nine iconic squares around Edinburgh and their influence of the city’s modern-day and historic culture.
With so many fabulous options available, sit back and relax while One Square brings the magic of Christmas to you.
