The Art Gallery Cafe with its Famous Staircase at Royal Highland Hotel

To the right of the spacious lobby and grand staircase is the Art Gallery café. Ideal for those mainly wanting a lighter bite or snack, although an extensive menu does cater for more substantial meals too as a relaxing alternative in a completely different and more classical ambience to that of the more contemporary, chic Ash Restaurant

The Art Gallery Café provides a great meeting point for discerning locals and residents alike – who prefer to relax in its stylish surroundings, linger a while and chat or read a book - and enjoy a superb daily offering of beverages (including speciality teas and coffees), home baking and pastries, soft and alcoholic drinks table served – and a delicious extensive daily light bite menu - with something more substantial always available to ease the hunger pangs

Open daily early till late, this is a very spacious area which also serves as a very pleasant, quiet pre and post dinner drinks, aperitifs and liqueurs alternative to the more vibrant Ash Bar adjoining Ash Restaurant. The restaurant is easily accessible by level access from the Gallery Café

And nothing epitomizes the hotel’s majestic style and great historic past, than the Grand Staircase which faces you the minute you enter our Gallery Cafe and hotel reception area.

The majestic staircase, which inspired the designers of the Titanic (the inspiration for the stairwell in the ballroom on the Titanic), forms the whole focal point of the building – and provides a most impressive lead up to the hotel’s 84 bedrooms
