About Witchery By The Castle, Edinburgh

The Witchery by the Castle is a restaurant on the Royal Mile near Edinburgh Castle which also provides bed and breakfast accommodation. The restaurant was opened in 1979 by chef James Thompson. At the start there were just three staff but the business has now grown to employ over 70, including several housekeepers, a night porter and 16 chefs. The building is said to be haunted by one of the thousand people who were burned for witchcraft on Castlehill in 15th and 16th centuries. The eight bedroom suites are furnished in a gothic style with oak panelling, tapestries and antique features. Notable people who have stayed there includes Andrew Lloyd Webber and Catherine Zeta-Jones.
