The Pompadour restaurant in Edinburgh closes after 95 years

The Pompadour restaurant at The Caledonian hotel in Waldorf Astoria Edinburgh officially shut its doors yesterday (26 January) after 95 years in the city.

A statement posted on the restaurants’ social media platforms said: “After careful consideration, we confirm that we will close our doors for the last time this Sunday. We are proud of the achievements and memories over 95 years. Thank you to our customers and suppliers.”

Recently, the restaurant was fronted by chef Dan Ashmore after cutting ties with the five-AA hotel last year.

Before Ashmore, the restaurant traded as Pompadour by Galvin, under the group headed by brothers Chris and Jeff Galvin.

The Galvin group has previously run Gavin Brasserie de Luxe at the hotel, which was succeeded by chef Mark Greenway. 

The Waldorf Astoria Edinburgh was built in 1903 and underwent a £24m refurbishment before relaunching in 2012.
