For more than four decades, The Witchery has served traditional Scottish fare in a 16th-century building near the summit of the Royal Mile. Legend has it this Old Town institution is haunted by the ghosts of women who were burned at the stake on neighboring Castlehill during the reign of James VI. Children are welcome at lunchtime and in the early evening, when the restaurant serves its popular pre-theater supper.
