Superb venue for a private party! We recently booked the Counting House for our wedding anniversary party and ABSOLUTELY loved the great service from the helpful staff, the great facilities and equipment provided. Everything about this venue including the decor and layout of the main room made for a wonderful party, would highly recommend to anyone. It is already hard to book because it’s so popular, but I don’t mind publicising my good review because I know I won’t need to book it for a long time, and am sure others will continue to use this great space for many years to come!

I highly recommend The Counting House as a venue. It has character, space and great staff. My brother had his wedding there and it was fab. The grandness of the room gave the wedding such ambience. It was great for a ceilidh and didn’t mean you were dancing on a postage stamp like some hotels. They provided a great buffet and the staff were up for a laugh. It’s well priced to hire and I’d recommend it for any function. They also hold “themed” evenings once a month and their vintage evenings are the best. I really enjoyed their 1940’s and 1950’s nights. The Counting House is also ideally located for students as its right by the Edinburgh uni campus!

Very central and very local at the same time – one of the gems in the Edinburgh University area. The pub is based in an 18th century house property of a former merchant, and became popular as a venue for all types of social events: weddings, ceilidh, fund raising projects. It comprises a main banqueting hall and an intimate lounge with a self-contained bar, allowing for a total capacity of 249 guests [edit: now 160] It is a popular place for tango lovers. Each Sunday eve the floor is open from 6 till 7pm for free beginner’s class and after 7.30 the floor is filled with professional tango dancers whose fiery movements can raise the temperature to the highest degrees.
