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 over 20 labels featured on our Champagne Table. And since we encourage you to raise a tall glass any day of the week, we offer over half 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, freshly made sweet & savoury treats are sure to entice, alongside artisan teas and local coffee.
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.

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.
