Originally named The Pompadour Restaurant, this elegant restaurant first opened in 1925 at the heyday of Victorian railway travel to serve the rich and famous of the time, for which The Caledonian was the hotel of choice in Scotland.

Having been restored to its former splendour, the Pompadour by Galvin continues its tradition of classical French excellence under the guidance of the Galvin brothers.

Savor selections from the à la carte and tasting menus that feature classical French-inspired dishes prepared with locally sourced seasonal Scottish ingredients, as well as traditional Scottish and English favourites. The Galvin brothers showcase the very best of the region's produce presented in their unique style. Appreciate the specially selected collection of French regional wines that has been created by the highly experienced sommelier to complement each of the menu selections.

The hospitable, professional, and knowledgeable team at The Pompadour by Galvin welcomes guests and attends to their needs, making the dining experience an enjoyable and memorable one.

In the private specialty cocktail salon, enjoy pre-dinner apéritifs, or coffee and digestifs after dinner, along with spectacular views of the castle and cityscape.
