Cannonball House

"We loved holding our wedding reception at Contini Cannonball. The team at Contini Events were so helpful and considerate, discussing our ideas and helping us choose a delicious and memorable menu. We held our drinks reception in the bar area, and the raised area provided the perfect stage for our speeches. The canapes were delicious and went perfectly with a few glasses of prosecco. Dinner was held upstairs in the restaurant and it looked beautiful (you can't get a closer view of the castle!). Our three course dinner was perfect and the cheese boards afterwards were a delicious addition. We loved Contini's focus on fresh, local produce and slightly unusual ingredients. If you want a relaxed, intimate wedding where good food and wine are the focus, then Contini Cannonball are the perfect hosts! "

Just imagine - fine food and a warm welcome 

There are very few venues that can boast a location as iconic as Cannonball House on Castlehill, directly next to Edinburgh Castle. 

We love Cannonball House with all its history and all the character you would expect from an Edinburgh Old Town building that dates back to the 17thC.  Cannonball House captures all the mystery and history of the best dining on the Royal Mile.  You’re dining in the shadows of the first Duke Gordon, the first key keeper to Edinburgh Castle who originally owned Cannonball House.   

Cannonball House is set over three floors.  Each with it’s own individual character but linked by the old school staircase which gives a hint to one of its many lives over its 400 year old history.

The top floor showcases our Restaurant with stunning double high ceilings and views north, south, east and west of Edinburgh. Suitable for parties of 30-70 guests.   

The middle floor hosts our whisky bar with its list of over 150 whiskies and is perfect for pre or post wedding breakfast drinks. 

The Glengoyne Room is situated on the lower ground floor and is suitable for the smaller more intimate party of 15-40 guests. 

The building has its own dedicated lift that services all levels.

Our menus change with the seasons and can be bespoked especially for you and your guests.  

We pride ourselves on our relationship with our suppliers.  Buying direct from as many of Scotland’s small producers as we can allows us to showcase Scotland at its best throughout the seasons. Whether it’s Glamis Asparagus that we normally get in May or foraged fresh Chanterelle that we get in September or glorious Grouse in August our suppliers are there to source the best freshest produce so we can prepare for you and your guests.

Your dedicated wedding planner will be present to welcome your guests and service your events with warmth but with the discretion your wedding requires.  The Victor welcome with Carina’s passion for the best produce and our team delivering everything else in-between. Great food and a warm welcome are what our reputation is based on.  We’re here to ensure that you and your guests have the very best experience and enjoy the best of Scotland’s Larder in one of Edinburgh's most iconic buildings.
