Your Senses

Our restaurant and bar Printing Press and Burr & Co remain closed for the time being.

As much as we want you to enjoy all the delights our wonderful city has to offer, you cannot miss out on our inviting options to dine here at InterContinental Edinburgh The George. The Printing Press Restaurant and Bar offer stylish drinks and a modern take on the best of Scottish produce, whilst Burr & Co. provides a cosy rendezvous, serving comforting coffees and irresistible homemade cakes.

The Printing Press Restaurant

Where the classics come to life

The legacy of the capital’s rich literary heritage weaves throughout The Printing Press which gets its name from the link to Scotland’s prestigious publishing house, Oliphant, Anderson and Ferrier, founded by renowned writers from the late 1780s who were also residents at this address.

The Printing Press Bar

A Scottish style of its own

Alongside The Printing Press restaurant, you have the welcoming Printing Press Bar, a late-night beacon of hospitality that exudes elegance. It shouldn’t come as a surprise, but the Bar was the winner of Cocktail Hotel Bar of the Year at the Scottish Hotel Awards 2019. Here we have a collection of local spirits from single malts to Edinburgh gin and even Scottish vodka. Cocktail masterclasses are available for the adventurous guest who loves to learn about the local tipples.
