"We held our end of year company conference in the Burns Room at Rabbies and were extremely impressed by the service we received. With around 28 people, including our executive board from London, we were provided with a great meeting room with a huge TV screen for presentations, constantly replenished coffee/tea station and a cracking view of Edinburgh's Princes Street. The staff were friendly and extremely helpful even when we had some minor technical difficulties with our laptops and presentations! All in all a great venue for meetings and corporate events and located just a stones throw from Waverley Station. Highly recommended."

Graham Turnbull - Consultant, Harvey Nash

"Rabbie's were efficient at both events we were hosting in their upstairs venue. The location is central and excellent. The room is bright and spacious with an amazing view down the length of Princes Street. Locals were impressed, non-locals even more so. The full "room height" Georgian windows lend the room class beyond the price."

Richard Meadows - Director, Great Grog

"Scottish Enterprise used the Board room within Rabbie’s offices at 6 Waterloo Place for a 2 day team development workshop. The facilities were perfect for our group (up to 20 pax) and the central location (2 minutes walk from Waverly station) was ideal. The room layout and facilities allowed for a comfortable & relaxed working environment. All catering (lunches and morning & afternoon snacks) were delicious. The food was obviously home made on the premises and lunch in particular received high praise (from our normally picky team). The food was fresh, tasty and a lovely change from typical business lunch offerings. We’d have no hesitation in using the venue again, and have already recommended it to colleagues."
