Welcome to Cannonball Restaurant & Bar. A stunning three storey historic building with all the character you would expect from an Edinburgh Old Town building that dates back to the 17th Century.  Cannonball House captures all the mystery and history of the Royal Mile. Enjoy a delicious five-course tasting menu showcasing Scotland’s artisan suppliers and growers.

  • A six-course tasting meal with matched wine for your first four courses and a dram of whisky with dessert. Followed by tea or coffee and shortbread
  • A host to escort you from Cannonball House to the Castle Esplanade
  • A prime location seat in the outdoor arena with exceptional views of the performance
  • An official Tattoo Show Programme

Whilst there is no dress code for this package, we ask that you respect your host and fellow guests and dress accordingly, i.e. avoiding short trousers and sports shoes. As you are sitting in the outdoor arena for the Tattoo performance, a warm top layer or coat is recommended.

Bookings for our hospitality experiences will be based on shared tables with other guests.
