Full description
Sample fantastically fresh Scottish oyster daily at Cannonball House, with daily deliveries fresh off the boats from local areas.

Served as they come with 2000 year old Roman sauce, Red wine vinegar and shallot dressing, Lemon and tabasco Or Kilpatrick served grilled with Isle of Mull Cheddar, Worcester sauce and crispy bacon

Cannonball Restaurant & Bar at Cannonball House is ideally located the very top of the Royal Mile overlooking Edinburgh Castle. The name Cannonball House comes from the gunshot lodged high on the wall facing Edinburgh Castle. It is rumored to have been fired by Government troops towards Holyrood Palace when Bonnie Prince Charlie was in residence in 1745 during the Jacobite Rebellion. However, it is more likely the cannonball was placed there by engineers to mark the gravitational height for the first piped water supply to Castlehill Reservoir across the road.
Either way, it’s a little piece of history and well worth a look when you leave. The one surviving feature of the original building is the 'oldest knocker in the world' door that adorns our entrance off the steps from Royal Mile.
  • Either 3 or 6 oysters per person
