Fizz will be once more be on the menu as Edinburgh’s newly refurbished Signet Library throws open its doors for the Festival season from Monday 3 August to Monday 31 August 2015.
Following a £250,000 refurbishment to create Edinburgh’s most glamorous afternoon tea destination, Colonnades will feature the Pommery Bar favourites during the month of August. The Colonnades menu will be expanded to include the popular whole lobster, Aberdeen Angus burger and sharing platters to complement our superb new afternoon tea which has received rave reviews.
Our Pommery Champagne seasonal tasting trays are amazing. The tray showcases four distinctive styles of champagne presented as seasons. The styles are all distinctive.A leaflet provides information on each of the champagnes illustrating an aspect of a complex region and a fascinating winemaking process. Once the tasting exercise is complete, a full glass of your favourite is served. It's a wonderful experience, dare we say unique and a wonderful antidote to the hurly burly of the Royal Mile in the Fringe.
The Colonnades afternoon tea, served on stunning bespoke silver tableware by our friendly staff, is set within beautifully refurbished elegant surroundings. It is fast becoming the talk of the town. With the finest hand crafted pastries from our resident pastry chef Matthew, previously of One Devonshire and Cromlix House and the full range of Pommery champagnes and cocktails, which you can enjoy year round.
Open seven days a week during the Edinburgh Festivals season, the Signet Library is always the place to see and be seen in August, and now this year, it is even more stylish - definitely the place to relax in and absorb the fabulous atmosphere.
