Booking A Table

Please read the information below carefully before booking.


To avoid unnecessary queues and to ensure we have availability for your group, we strongly recommend booking a table in advance. Reservations will last for two hours and will be held for 15 minutes after your scheduled arrival time.

We will accept walk-ins if we have space, but we cannot guarantee availability.

To ensure there is plenty of time for us to clear and sanitise tables, we may ask customers to leave 5-10 minutes before the end of their booking.

We have small tables available for two people, and picnic benches for up to six people*. For the safety of our staff and customers, we are asking you to abide by the Scottish government’s extended household group policy at all times.

If you have special access requirements or have any questions not answered above, please email

(*Our picnic benches are perfect for four people, or up to six if you’re comfortable rubbing elbows!)


Health & Safety

Just like in 2020, we’ve been working hard behind the scenes to ensure that the courtyard is as safe as possible for our customers and staff.

Professional cleaning company Daybreak regularly deep clean the entirety of Summerhall, using a sanitising solution that is 99.99% effective against harmful viruses and hospital-grade testing to declare Summerhall as Covid-19 Hygiene Certified.

The following measures are in place to ensure the safety of our staff and customers at all times:

  • Physical distancing between all outside seating areas and queuing positions
  • Constant cleaning cycles by dedicated staff members during courtyard opening hours, including toilet facilities
  • Face masks, gloves, and other PPE worn by staff at all times
  • Hand sanitiser stations provided
  • Card payments only
  • One-way routes across the site, including toilets, entrance, and exits
  • A Covid-19-specific risk assessment, available to view here.


Alongside our full menu of alcoholic drinks (including Pickering’s Gin and Barney’s Beer, both produced on site), we also offer a range of refreshing cold soft drinks, hot drinks, and pub food.

Summerhall takes your safety very seriously, so please be aware there will be SIA badged security staff on duty at all times and if  anyone is found to be in contravention of these rules or current Scottish Government Guidance, they will be asked to leave the site
