Rabble Rooms
Ranked #124 of 151 Hotels in Edinburgh
Reviewed 17 July 2017

We weren't sure what to expect of newly opened Rabble, the taphouse and grill owned by Montpelier's of Edinburgh however we booked for dinner on Saturday and went along with an open mind.

In summary, we both left feeling that on many levels it had been faultless. The service was polite, friendly and efficient, there was a good vibe and energy, the food came exactly as billed by the menu and the wine did too.

That said, why have I not given Rabble 5 stars?

Truthfully I'm not sure other than that having agreed we couldn't really fault it, we were also agreed that we wouldn't be in a hurry to return. We can't quite put our finger on why this is but perhaps it's because Rabble has something of a 'formula feel' to it. No bad thing in and of itself but maybe we were looking for something that felt just a touch more personal.

My recommendation is that if you're happy to dine in a busy bar/restaurant environment, give it a go and see for yourself.

Room Tip: We only dined here and didn't stay.

Hi Rob - thanks for your review. We're so glad you considered us faultless on so many levels. What more could we ask for!
Hopefully we can have you back sometime soon to work on the je ne sais quoi you felt was missing from your experience on Saturday.
Best, Jessica

Popped in here after dinner and wished we had gone here for dinner.
Bacardi and Pepsi may not be the most exciting drink and this is a venue with lots of lovely beer on tap, but I was served the best Bacardi ever. Very refreshing, tingly, lovely!
Really nice setting with natural light in the restaurant area at the back. Friendly staff and a good atmosphere. Would have given it a 5, but chap with laptop playing 70s tracks ala just about everywhere right now just took it to a 4 & a half.

Hi Kenzieweimaraner,

Thanks for your review - we're delighted you enjoyed your tipple! Let us know if you'd like to come back some time for that dinner :).

Sorry about the music, that doesn't sound quite right to us either. Hopefully next time you visit, we'll be a little more current!

Kind regards,
Jessica
