Named Scotland’s Family Outlet of the Year 2015/2016, Charwood certainly lives up to its name, boasting a charcoal-burning Josper grill and a woodburning pizza oven that give the fresh, locally sourced food a tasty, rustic quality. The impressive handmade, wood-fi red pizzas are delightful and the selection of seven dry-rubbed, mouth-watering Scottish steaks with delicious bastes will have you coming back again and again, thanks to their amazing summer barbecue flavour.
Charwood’s location in south Edinburgh, just outside the city centre, means you can escape from the hustle and bustle without travelling too far afield. The stunning floor-to-ceiling windows provide beautiful views over the Pentland Hills – a great feature in the winter, when you can watch the snow fall as you enjoy a sumptuous Sunday roast and a mug of mulled wine. In the warmer months, make use of the spacious beer garden while sampling from the range of wine, beer, cider and whisky. Open from 9am, a visit in the morning brings the opportunity to sample from the scrumptious array of breakfast options.
The restaurant is a beautiful, family-friendly environment that can cater to any occasion. Live sports and major fixtures, including those featured on BT and Sky Sports, can be viewed from the lounge bar on the three TV screens. There’s also a separate bar and two function suites, making Charwood perfect for weddings, birthdays and any other celebrations.
