It's a way of life
At Nor’ Loft, we live by the philosophy that you needn’t wait for special occasions to enjoy Champagne. We love to talk about it almost as much as we love to drink it, so whether you’re a seasoned connoisseur or just eager to learn your ‘brut’ from your ‘demi-sec’, let us take you on a journey through our carefully curated selection.
From independent growers to prestigious Champagne houses, we have a variety of
labels featured on our Champagne Table. And since we encourage you to raise a tall glass any day of the week, we offer a selection of them by the glass.
with a contemporary twist
Using the best of Scottish seasonal produce, our afternoon tea is a contemporary twist on the classic. Our flavourful sweet & savoury treats are sure to entice, alongside artisan teas.
Ditch the cucumber sandwiches and Victoria sponge and think bite-size delicacies thoughtfully combined to satisfy your appetite. And of course, afternoon tea wouldn't be complete without a tall glass, enjoy the best of both worlds with our Laurent-Perrier Champagne flight.
Available between 1:30pm - 4:30pm daily
Think of the classic Happy Hour but with a seafood twist, enjoy oysters and mignonette for £1 each, every Thursday from 4pm - 6pm! And for a little extra indulgence, we'd recommend pairing with Laurent-Perrier La Cuvée Brut, to complement the fresh oysters with a hint of citrus and spice.
Advanced booking recommended, as oysters are ordered fresh and available on a first come first served basis.

The ancient Nor’ Loch is steeped in the history of Edinburgh. Centuries ago it sat in front of Market Street at the foot of the Castle rock, now occupied by Princes Street Gardens, and was part of the natural defences of the old town to hinder invaders. Inspired by this historic icon Nor’ Loft now takes its place as part of the city’s Old Town character.
