10 November 2014
We’re delighted that our new restaurant, Contini Cannonball is featured as one of the ‘top 5 historic places to dine in Edinburgh’ by Marketing Edinburgh! What a achievement this is. We hope that you can come visit our 300 year old venue soon, and enjoy the amazing views of the Royal Mile and Edinburgh Castle with you. Have a look at the article here.
“The newly opened Contini Cannonball at Cannonball House has brought this 300 year old building back to life. The initials of some of the early owners can still be seen carved above one of the upper windows – Alexander Mure and his wife Margaret Niellems with the date 1630. As you enter, look out for the ‘tirling pin’ still fixed to the main door, old Edinburgh’s version of a door knocker. But why the name Cannonball House? Look carefully on the side of the building facing Edinburgh Castle and you will see a mysterious cannonball fixed high up into the wall.”
