6 Romantic date spots for Valentine’s Day
Are you searching for brownie points? To win your valentine over? Or simply to spend some quality time with the one you love? We have searched high and low (literally up and down Scotland) for some of the best date spots. There is something for everyone and if you take our advice, you should never end up in the dog house again.
Bross Bagels – Portobello
If you love the beach and bagels as much as we do, this is the date spot for you. Bross Bagels are now legendary in Edinburgh. Their bagels are traditional Montreal inspired bagels with New York City deli inspired fillings. Our favourites are the Hungry Vegan and Mama Bross, named after the founder, Laura Bross who saw a bagel sized hole in Edinburgh and set out to fill it. Bross now have three locations around Edinburgh, our favourite being Portobello where you can enjoy the fresh sea air and sip on a cup of eteaket tea. Look up the menu and read about how Bross Bagels started here.
2. Archerfield House – East Lothian
Archerfield House and Links are located in a stunning location that would wow anyone. You can find plenty of walks around the house and links plus a lovely restaurant with divine meal options making it a great day trip. With a spa, golf course and accommodation you could stay overnight and have more time with the one you love. Find our more information here.
3. Afternoon Tea in our Tea Room – eteaket
What’s more romantic than tea? Nothing of course. Book in for our extra special bubbly afternoon tea and surprise your loved one. You will each get to pick your own pot of tea and sandwich. Plus you will be treated to a selection of patisseries, a scone and the cherry on top some bubbles. Our Tea Room has recently had a make over and we have created a relaxing space, perfect for enjoying each other’s company. Make sure to book a table soon as spaces are filling up fast. Phone: 0131 226 2982 or email [email protected] to make a booking.
4. Blairmore Farm and Estate – Crieff
A great option for a snugly night away. Have fun meeting the animals, exploring the local area, eating, drinking (eteaket tea) and then finish the day with a board game. Sheila will be your host, her hospitality is second to none and we just think she is the best. Blairmore has a range of cottage options for your stay and is only a stone’s through away from Edinburgh. Learn more about Blairmore here.
5. Chop House – Bruntsfield, Leith and Market Street
If you are from Edinburgh, you might know Chop House. Famous for its huge beef steaks, impeccable service and yummy Sunday roasts. It is a great valentine’s date spot. There is more to Chop House than beef although it is very important to them. They also have an impressive range of vegetarian options, crazy cocktails (our favourite is the Cosmo Cooler) and lets not forget the stylish interior which is perfect for your post date Instagram pics. Word on the street is that it is booking up fast. You can book through the Chop House website here.
6. The Edinburgh Larder – Edinburgh
One of our favourite city spots, Edinburgh Larder had to make the list. If you are looking for a more casual valentine’s option, this could be the one for you. Enjoy a yummy bowl of soup or treat yourself to one of their amazing cakes. Their food is organic, seasonal, ethical and sourced locally, whats not to love? Plus they stock eteaket tea so you can enjoy your favourite cuppa alongside a chocolate brownie whilst being in the company of your valentine (perfect date if you ask us). Learn more about Edinburgh Larder here.
