Royal Dick Courtyard Bar open April 26th


Summerhall will reopen its Royal Dick Courtyard Bar Monday, 26 April. Online table bookings will open Friday 26 March at 9.00am.


The Royal Dick is situated in the courtyard of Summerhall, with plenty of outdoor space providing lots of socially distanced seating. Pickering’s Gin and Barney’s Beer will be available on tap, alongside a pub food menu.


Tables for two and picnic benches for up to six people from three households will be available in two-hour slots. Summerhall is ensuring that the courtyard is as safe as possible for customers and staff by following all Scottish government guidelines. Also, Summerhall resident cleaning company Daybreak continues to regularly deep clean the entire site, using hospital-grade testing to declare Summerhall as Covid-19 Hygiene Certified.

Rowan Campbell, Summerhall General Manager, commented:

We have been looking forward to announcing the reopening of the Royal Dick Courtyard Bar for many months, and we’re thrilled to finally be able to do so. We can’t wait to welcome our local punters back to Summerhall and hope that this is just the beginning of a continued opening of Summerhall towards summer.”
