Bar & Restaurant

Breakfast at the Nira Caledonia Edinburgh is extremely popular with guests. Enjoy organic rare-breed back bacon that has been dry-cured by hand, piece-by-piece, for 8 days. Similarly, the chef insists that the organic sausages are hand-made using traditional methods. Both come direct from Peelham Farm in Berwickshire. As for the smoked salmon, the chef obtains this from a small artisan smokehouse in Dunkeld, Perthshire.

Monday – Friday 7am – 11am
Saturday & Sunday 8 am – 12noon

As you can see only the best produce that is sourced locally and within Scotland is reflected in the Blackwood’s Grill menu.
The beef has been raised traditionally and sustainably in the wilds of the Scottish Highlands, the rare-breed pork and lamb are organically farmed in the rolling hills of the Scottish borders and the fish is from the Highland lochs and the North Sea.
