Had a lovely birthday meal, the cocktails and food were very yummy. James made an extra effort and had a candle and lovely desert brought over which was a nice touch. Thanks again Hun xx

It was my 4th visit to the Refinery since May and on this occasion the noise level
was so high we could not hear our conversation. We appreciated being moved upstairs to a quieter area.
Is it necessary to have such loud music and could the volume be turned down ?
Service was very good and food good value for money.
Kind Regards,
M. S.

A very good vacation brunch meal. It was our first day in Edinburgh and the Refinery was just down the block on the lovely St Andrews Square. We enjoyed our meal and pleasant conversation from the staff. The food was creative, good and right sized.

Amazing warm staff. The decor has been done very thoughtful. The food quality and portions are value for money. The staff will also guide you about this which is good as wastage is save as I honestly and truly admired and most places will see how much money they make. Nice lively music. Would definitely recommend for food and drinks. They have got nice options for alcoholic and non alcoholic drinks.

My sister and I had a lovely lunch. We were well looked after by our waiter who was attentive and also knowledgeable re the wines. Once we had eaten we took our last glass of wine upstairs. The view across the square is lovely - really enjoyed the people watching
