The Caves is a truly unique venue that makes up the sub-structure of the 18th Century South Bridge. There is no venue more Edinburgh than the Caves, or more Scottish, if you consider there was once so much Whisky stored here that it became known as "Whisky Row".

Every room has a story to tell and a special place in Scottish history -from vaults that served as the stables to the French Cavalry who were at one time body guards to the Royal Family, to remains of the houses that pre-date the Bridge itself - with the original terracotta floor tiles still intact!

Today, after over 100 years of being lost, the hidden Edinburgh vaults were rediscovered and the original stone vaults of the Old Town Edinburgh have been magnificently restored by the current Managing Director, Norman Rowan junior.

With great regard for preserving the authenticity and history of this venue, for many years they have painstakingly excavated these vaults which is a UNESCO World Heritage site, thus creating this spectacular and very unique venue...

  • Hello Caroline, Thank you so much, we had the best day on Saturday! We would both like to thank everyone at the Caves (especially yourself!) for organising a fantastic day and helping with the planning process. We have had lots of lovely comments from family and friends about the venue, food, organisation etc. Thank you helping make our special day even better than we could have imagined!

  • Our wedding was absolutely amazing, the Caves is the perfect venue for couples looking for something a bit different. Our wedding coordinator Amy was a delight to deal with. Professional, highly responsive, flexible to our needs and she helped us with everything to run smoothly up to and on the day. We were able to trust her with all our requests and she carried these out with passion and care. The venue is stunning, the food is absolutely beautiful and the staff are a delight to deal with. They were so attentive to our guests and weeks on we are still receiving so many compliments about them and our day. Would absolutely recommend the venue and the whole experience to anyone looking for something unique! Thank you for making our day perfect.

  • Just wanted to say that we had an absolutely fantastic time on Saturday night! It was such a joyous evening, and all our guests had a lot of fun. Once again everyone commented on how amazing the venue was. Chelsea said she'd never seen that many guests still dancing at the end of the night. We feel so lucky to have been able to celebrate at the Caves not only once, but twice. Certainly a very special first anniversary! Thank you for everything Caroline!

  • To Caroline and All of the Team at The Caves. Thank you so much for everything you did for us in the run up and on the day of our wedding. We had the most beautiful day and felt so relaxed knowing that you had everything in hand. The venue looked so beautiful Caroline, it really was everything that we wanted.

    Katie and Chris via Letter
  • Dear Caroline, I was going to email you today to thank you so much for a wonderful day, but have been travelling since early morning so you beat me to it. We know how much work you put in for us and it definitely showed!From start to finish you have been excellent to deal with very professional, super friendly and extremely flexible. We had a wonderful day, everything was perfect and all the staff were first class. Please thank everyone involved from us.

  • just wanted to say a huge thank you to you and the staff at the caves, the day was incredible! You all went above and beyond and we are grateful for all the hard work and attention to detail. The day was perfect :) We are still getting emails / texts and having conversations about how all the guests absolutely LOVED the food. Everyone keeps going on about how good it all was and how impressed they are. I've also had many messages asking how they can get their hands on that cheesecake! Please pass our compliments on to the chef! Also to you and Caroline, I can't thank you both enough for all the emails, phone calls, and everything you did behind the scenes up to and on the day, you both made planning a wedding a lot easier than expected. To you personally, you have been fantastic and I just wanted to say an extra thank you for that little glass of prosecco before the ceremony, that 5 mins with my brother and MOH was the tiny bit of peace I needed before it all started. Thank you for providing that bit of serenity, you are so kind. Joseph and I had such an incredible time we want to do it all over again!

    Amanda and Joseph via email
  • just really wanted to say a huge thank you for everything you did for us in the run up and on the day of our wedding. You kept us really calm, especially on the day before when the storm was brewing and things felt like they were going wrong. You really reassured us and we felt everything was always in safe hands. The venue looked so beautiful on the day and I know you played a huge part in that. The ceremony was so perfect with all the jars and flowers everywhere. I'm also so grateful in how much you did in setting the tables up for the meal. You really went above and beyond and it looked exactly how I'd imagined. From helping me with my dress to being there with champagne at the end of the aisle, you were truly wonderful and we were so lucky to have you!

    Katie and Chris via Email
  • Thanks again for all of your help! We had an amazing day and our guests couldn't stop telling us about what an amazing time they had :) the staff were so nice and took great care of us on Saturday!

    Tanya and Alan via email
  • Hi Caroline, Thank you so much for all your help on our big day at The Caves. All the staff were brilliant and so helpful and you did an amazing job putting the venue together. Everything was so beautiful and all our guests said the venue was stunning! I’ve got a couple of our professional photos but not them all. Honestly thanks again for everything. We’re on our mini moon just now at our log cabin.

    Erin & Stephen via email
  • Hi Lisa and team, Just wanted to send a quick email to express how happy Danielle and I were with the whole day on Saturday. The venue looked stunning, and you guys were excellent from start to finish. The whole team was polite, happy and came across as you wanted to be part of the day. We had the best time possible on Saturday and it was well worth the delays and stress to get there! Thank you to the whole team for making it such a special day! My personal highlight was walking back in as a married couple to Praise You, that was a little bit special! Thank you again, we genuinely had a better day than we even hoped for. It was outstanding.

    Danielle and Neil via email
  • To Caroline and The Caves' Team, Thank you all so very much for everything you did to create our dream wedding day! We can not thank you all enough- we were so so happy, the dinner and evening were just perfect!

  • Hi Lisa! Its been a month ago since we tied the knot…What a day! It couldn’t have (and wouldn’t have) been as perfect as it was if we didn’t do it at The Caves and have all your assistance on the day, and on the build up to it. It’s a bit boring now actually! Been planning this wedding for years, now I don’t know who to send an email to every 10 minutes a thought pops into my head!? We will send you a few of the wedding photos once they get sent to us (should be very soon) and you can stuck some on your instagram if you want. We both really appreciate the complete hassle free job you made it for us. And everyone on the day loved it - people are still talking about it. Party of the summer? I think so. Thank you again! Maybe we will be back to renew our vows? lol.

    Sean and Hayley via email
  • Thank you for your email, and thank you and all your colleagues for making our day truly amazing. We all had such a great time - the staff were great, food was amazing, venue was beautiful! Everything went perfectly and we wouldn’t have changed a thing!

    Amy & Brian via email
  • I was at a Burn’s supper last night at the caves. I wanted to just send a quick note to say thank you very much to the staff. Every person whom I met was excellent. The doorman was welcoming and helped me with where to go and my coat etc, the waiter who twigged really quickly I was (v sadly) not drinking and handed me a flute which meant I looked as though I had something interesting, the waiting staff at the tables were super, really easy to catch their eye to ask for a drink. They were all very happy and having attended lots of these things over the years, the usual hassled, tired and disinterested faces were replaced with bright, open smiles. I was highly impressed and would without hesitation be recommending the venue in future.

    Claudia via email
  • We just want to say a massive thank you all so very much for an absolutely fabulous day, you all made it go effortlessly; us and our guests had such a lovely time and were all taken with the beautiful venue and excellent service provided

  • We held our Geological Society Ball here this March and were thrilled with how the event turned out. To begin with, the venue was amazing and also perfect for the 125 (+30 after dinner) guests that we had. Communication from the office was always prompt and super helpful. They were extremely professional and made planning our event much easier for us which was a big bonus. On the night, the tables and everything looked incredible, the service was efficient and we felt like we were treated very well. The two supervisors in charge, Tommy and Jacqueline, were incredible throughout and ensured the smooth running of our night. A massive thank you to all of the staff here, would absolutely recommend this venue!

We are still processing what a beautiful, amazing, and perfect day it was, but we just wanted you to know how much we loved everything and how much we appreciate all you did for us.

For me, I just wanted to say how impressed I was with the whole team, both in the run up (apologies again for how many questions I asked you!), on the night and afterwards. It just felt like everything ran so smoothly, and on the night itself the staff just made us feel as if nothing was any trouble.Thank you again and I’ll be thoroughly recommending the Caves to my family for any parties or celebrations they may plan in future!

We had so many compliments about the venue and how well organised everything was. You were also so quick to reply whenever I had a question and help me with other suppliers which was brilliant esp at times when I felt worried or suppliers hadn’t been in touch. Thanks again for everything. The day was perfect! Such happy memories.

  • Dear Emma, We're so sorry it's taken us so long to write to you but we just wanted to say a MASSIVE thank you for being absolutely amazing with our wedding on Jan 6th. You were absolutely brilliant, so helpful, and flexible with all my MANY requests and questions. We have our wedding photos back now and I just wanted to send a couple to you to show you just how happy you made us (plus a sneaky one of you handing us that much needed bubbly after the ceremony). We were so impressed by all the staff, the food and the whole venue. Our friends and family all told us it was the best wedding and venue they'd ever been to and how impressed they were with all the caterers and bar staff in the evening too. Thank you again for making our day so special, and run so smoothly.

    Lara and Simon via email
  • Thank you SO much for yesterday. I can’t even begin to tell you how easy you made it all for us and especially whilst we have been in New York. The venue was magical and it was seamless for us with all your hard work. Thank you again!! What a team you have!

    Ailsa and Darius via email
  • We just wanted to say thanks again to everyone helped make our day as perfect as it was. All our guests have been raving about the venue, the food, the atmosphere, the band and many more parts of the day and generally what a great day they had. Most have said best wedding ever! The photographer said it was the coolest wedding ever! Andy and I appreciate all the help you guys did into making it our dream wedding. I have attached a couple of our amazing pictures, which is part of the reason we chose The Caves, to get pictures like this. Our daughter had such a good day, she has asked to have her 7th birthday party there! Might not be the most practical or cost effective for that but I have said lets save for her 18th!

    Rachel and Andy via email
  • Hi Caroline, We just wanted to say a massive thank you to everyone involved in our Wedding celebrations at The Caves on Friday. Everything was brilliant! The venue looked amazing, the food was awesome and the whole day went to plan perfectly. Jonas was excellent and looked after us very well, he did a really good job in keeping us in touch with the order of the day and was very attentive with every detail - he was incredible! The day was definitely everything that we hoped for and more.

  • Thank you so much for helping to make my sons wedding so amazing. Last January when they told us that they had set a date and where it was I wasn’t quite sure what to expect. I got onto your website and looked at the photo’s and was very pleased with what I saw. But Wow the photo’s don’t do the venue justice, the place just blew me away. I always knew that Simon (Ash, to most of his friends and Lara) would do things a little differently, but it was amazing. Thank you to you and your amazing staff, whom did an excellent job, I’ve had loads of compliments about their unobtrusiveness and professionalism on the day. Thank you all once again and for making it a truly remarkable day to remember, and best wishes for the future.

Many thanks for all of your help you really are a huge assest to the team at The Caves and we cannot thankyou enough!!

  • "I just wanted to say a huge thank you for all of your help and support with the wedding. We both had an amazing day, and everything was perfect – we’re excited to get the photos back from the photographer. Ewan also did a great job running around and looking after us all day, and we couldn’t have asked for more. If anyone ever asks us what we thought of The Caves, you can be sure that we’ll have nothing but praise for the venue and staff (and we’ll point them in the direction of Emma)!

  • Dear Lisa, On behalf of the staff and students at Edinburgh Universities' Royal Naval Unit, I write to express my sincere thanks to you for accommodating this years' Burns Night. We are one of 2 URNU's that celebrate Burns Night and with that we take great pride in being the only URNU in Scotland's capital City. The evening was an important event in out Unit calendar and it was thoroughly enjoyed by the members of the Unit, not least because of the attendance of so many members of the civil and military communities of the city. Burns Night is traditionally on of the highlights of the year for any URNU and we are honoured to have been able to hold it at your stunning venue. All the delegates and Service personnel who attended commented on your teams' professionalism and the welcoming atmosphere throughout the venue. In particular, our event would not have run as smoothly without you and the support of your staff, and you should all be commended for the attention to detail and the ability to go the extra mile. Once again, please accept my utmost thanks on behalf of my team here at Edinburgh URNU, the delegates who attended, and the Royal Navy. Yours sincerely, Neil Young

    Neil Young via letter
  • We don't even know where to start in thanking you for everything you did to make our wedding day absolutely perfect. To say you gave us the special day of our dreams hardly seems enough - it was more amazing than we ever could have imagined. We are so grateful and wish you all nothing but the very best.

    Bailey and Thomas via letter

  • Caroline, Rachel is on her honeymoon this week so while still fresh in the memory I would like to say how much we were impressed with the caves as a venue for the wedding. The venue itself was decked out precisely in the way that Rachel wanted, the tables design and decoration were fantastic, the welcome greeting to all guests was very professional, the food and timely service were easily the best I have seen at any wedding with the synchronised service to all the tables massively impressive.All through the day the staff performed their duties without fuss and nothing was an issue. The final topping on the cake was the evening hog roast which provided all with a welcome and enjoyable food break. You will probably have guessed by now that we were overwhelmed with the service provided and would ask if you could feed this back to all the staff involved for a magnificent effort. We personally received feedback from many of the guests who expressed their delight at the reception many who said that it had been the best wedding they had ever been to. Thank you again on behalf of the Clough and Summers family and if you would like me to make a posting on Trip adviser I would be delighted.

    Rachel and Neale via email
  • Huge thank you from everyone at Heriot Watt SBC to The Caves! Everyone had an amazing night for our graduation ball and would definitely recommend this venue - absolutely beautiful and amazing service - Lisa was a huge help to us in the organisation and Ewen and Lisa made everything run very smoothly on the night. Lovely details and set the perfect atmosphere for what we wanted. Thank you!

  • Hi Caroline and everyone else at The Caves, I just wanted to drop you a line to say a huge thank you for organising such an amazing day for us on Saturday 2nd July in The Caves! We had an absolute ball at our wedding! Thank you for everything!

    Kate and Michael via email
  • 'We had our wedding reception at The Caves in February and from start to the 3am finish it was brilliant! The meetings and assistance with planing were fantastic and really reassuring, every time I had a new question someone got back to me right away and the staff are so professional and organised that it really does take the stress away. We were a little concerned about the food because we didn't do the trial; it was delicious, I know I'm biased but it's the best food I've had at a wedding and loads of the guests commented on it too. The venue looked incredible, all of our guests are from away as we're English and haven't lived in Edinburgh for that long so they'd never been before and they were blown away, it looks truly spectacular on the day. The staff are relaxed, friendly and professional - nothing is too much trouble - the food is delicious and the venue is stunning. We loved it! Thanks Caves '

  • Just a quick note to say a huge thank you to everyone at the Caves who helped make Blair and I's wedding day so special. We had an absolute blast, as did our guests. The day ran so smoothly, the food was exceptional (so many of our guests made a point of saying how great it was!), and the front of house managers were brilliant. It was such an amazing day. Thanks again.

    Kirsty and Blair via email
  • Dear Emma and The Team at The Caves Thank you for all of your hard work to make our day so special! You were amazing from the beginning with any and all questions in the run up to the Big Day!

The stunning venue was everything we had hoped for and beautifully complimented by the wonderful staff- thank you so much to all for making our day perfect!

  • We had a fabulous evening at The Caves on Saturday for Marcus's 21st. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves and was very complimentary about the venue. We couldn't have done it without you - huge thanks to you and the rest of the team on the night, everyone was very professional. Ewen deserves particular thanks for managing everything so perfectly - he couldn't have been more helpful.

  • 'As we approach our first wedding anniversary on 21st March, I thought now would be a perfect time to officially thank you and the rest of the staff at The Caves for giving us a truly fabulous wedding reception. A huge thank you to you for your excellent organisation and to all the staff for their enthusiasm and laid back but attentive attitude all through the evening, especially Ewan who looked after us so well. The Caves is such a special and spectacular venue, intimate with a real wow factor and we enjoyed absolutely every minute of our experience with you from making the booking right through to leaving at the end of the night. So many of our guests have commented on how incredible it was - especially the excellent quality of the food and service. Nothing about our experience with The Caves was run of the mill, which was exactly what we wanted. I can't thank you enough.

    Martin and Kim via card
  • We would like to say a special thank you to you and everyone who was working on the 25th of October, You all did an amazing job and turned our wedding day into the most perfect and relaxed day. So again a massive thank you to all of you, it was such a pleasure to deal with you!

  • I am writing on behalf of the SELMAS Committee to thank you for the great service we had at our Conference at the Caves last week. Our delegates were blown away by the venue – it was definitely one of the stars of the event and that’s a first for us! It looked amazing, the food was great and the service was fist class. We were given everything we asked for and much was anticipated for us in advance of even asking. We would most certainly use the Caves again and would thoroughly recommend it to others.

    Gillian via email
  • To ALL the staff at The Caves who made Sascha's Bar Mitzvah such an incredible night! The feedback we have had is immense, all together we blew everyones minds and expectations and I think the night will be one which will be remembered by many for many years to come. Thank you for all the additional efforts in the planning and orchestration of the Big Band entrance it was "007 AMAZING" and thanks to your seamless co-ordination....IT WORKED!!!!

  • Hello everyone, Sorry it has taken us a while to get around to messaging you, we had an extra few days in Edinburgh and then it took us a while to come down from cloud 9, plus we have a Halloween themed wedding to attend this Saturday too! We both wanted to express our thanks for such a wonderful day and night. Everybody was simply blown away with the venue, the friendliness of the staff and of course the food, we honestly did not hear a bad word about anything, and both of us had the best day ever, so thank you so much! I'm afraid we can't remember all of the individual names but a few staff in particular really stood out, so thanks very much again. We are now looking forward to planning and saving for our honeymoon, and our 1 year anniversary is already planned in Edinburgh again and we cannot wait.

    Sean & Laura via email

Everything worked like clockwork, the venue was very romantic and atmospheric, the food was delicious and presented perfectly and the staff were all very friendly and welcoming. The only negative thing about the day was that it had to end! Thank you all so much for giving, not only the bride and groom a wonderful day, but also for giving all the guests a day to remember.

  • I just wanted to email to say thank you for everything on Friday - and all the days leading up to it. We've been impressed with your organisation and efficiency all the way along and I'm so glad it all paid off. It must be a complete nightmare making sure that everything runs as smoothly as it can and trying to herd everyone to be in the right place at the right time. I suspect we were pretty frustrating so thank you for your patience! Thanks too for such a wonderful meal and for making such an effort with the tables and candles. The whole place looked beautiful. If we need to do anything at all, please let us know. Thanks again. We're aware of how lucky we are to have had such a lovely day

  • Thank you so, so much for all the hard work and effort you put into arranging our wedding on May 2nd. The entire day was perfect, and we are so thankful for everything you did for us. Lisa – thank you for remaining so patient with all our silly questions in the run up, and for all your help and suggestions for decorating the venue, we absolutely loved it. Chris (and the entire on-the-day team) – thank you so much for keeping us so well informed in what was a blur of a day, and for the friendly and professional running of the day. It all went perfectly and was entirely due to the wonderful staff at The Caves. Thank you for giving us a perfect wedding day!

  • I just wanted to drop you a line to say what a truly fantastic evening we had on Saturday. It was such a memorable event for us, getting people back together after more than twenty years. Your team did a superb job. The food was delicious, service was great, and we felt looked after all evening. I can't tell you what a pleasure it was to be one of the party organisers, but with absolutely nothing to worry about from the moment we arrived to the moment we left! I have had so many compliments from various guests about the evening in general and the choice of venue in particular (see below). So a huge big thank you to Chris and all the team on the night, and of course to you for helping us along the way. If you can bear to have us, I think we might well be back in a few years time! all best wishes, and again very many thanks, Jessica "Thank you for organising such an epic evening in what has to be the coolest venue on the planet!" "What an absolute hoot girls!! Well done getting everyone together and choosing such a cracking venue. Blown away by what a blast it was, want to do it all over again already!" "What a awesome epic weekend! Feeling frazzled but still high reminiscing.... A knock out!!! Unbeatably brilliant from start to finish... " "What a night, what a blast. Thank you or making it all possible. Am still riding on the crest of the reunion wave! Superb night. What a total joy to see everyone. Girls, thanks a million times for bringing us all together. So special. "What a huge huge success last night was - I just can’t believe it’s over!!!! Enormous thanks to you (and the team), it truly was an unforgettable night."

  • We cannot thank you enough for being the best venue we could have wished for for our wedding last Saturday. The team took the time to organise all the personal touches we wanted, the staff were great and we literally had the best day ever- couldn't have asked for anything more. Thanks again x

  • I wanted to write and thank all of the staff at The Caves for making our wedding on the 11th so wonderful. Particularly to the Wedding Team and Manager, Chris, and the staff working that day who were excellent. Our guests all commented on how impressed they were with the venue, the catering and the service. We also had many guests saying that it was the best wedding that they'd ever been to. We would agree but then we are rather biased. We also wanted to say that as a gay couple, finding a venue that would treat us with courtesy and sensitivity was really important and, even though it's increasingly rare these days, you do still hear of horror stories for some gay couples trying to book venues. We would happily recommend you to anyone! In fact, we originally approached you because we had used a quote from a female couple a few years ago who had their civil partnership at The Caves. We knew therefore that we would be welcome. Anyway, thank you again for giving us the best day of our lives. We will never forget it.

  • Daryl and I had the most amazing time on Friday and there is absolutely nothing we would of changed about it. Everyone said what a perfect venue it was and how it truly reflected us. I loved in particular that nothing much, if at all, needs done to decorate the venue as it screams character and provides a romantic setting without even trying. I can't thank you, Caroline, enough for all of the support over the last year and you truly made the process a lot easier for me. I don't even want to count the amount of emails I have sent you, especially the ones the night before the wedding. I loved how I could ask you any question and you always gave me a practical answer. You were the best wedding planner I could have asked for! Ewen, your service and attentiveness was incredible on Friday, all of the family have commented on how great you were and I'm sorry for being so late... You covered this up so smoothly as we began to run late. Everything ran perfectly, even with the builders and the cement thing, but it only added a unique anecdote for us in the future. You were definitely more worried than we were. I cried, when I came to collect our things on Tuesday, not sad tears but tears because I was reminded of what an incredible day we had at The Caves. I hope we will be back in the future. To be honest, I'm already planning an anniversary party here, in my head. Take care everyone and I hope business continues to boom. This is only a great reflection on the amazing service you provide and the magical setting that is The Caves.Caves good

  • We just wanted to take this opportunity to thank you and everyone at The Caves for an incredible evening! It was perfect! The atmosphere, the ambiance, the appearance of everything was amazing.

  • Thanks so much for your hard work and patience at making the event such a success. It was an absolutely brilliant night and everyone had a smashing time. I must admit I was incredibly proud to host the event at The Caves and it really didn’t fail to impress the company and all of our guests! It would be great if you could pass on special thanks to Ewen as he was a great event manager on the night. I can’t tell you how impressed I was by him ‘having our back’ as it over and above and ensured that we didn’t go overboard. I’d happily recommend your venue to anyone having an event and would absolutely use it again in the future.

  • Thank you for all of your help to make Friday such an amazing day. John and I had the best time and loved every minute of it. Our guests had a fabulous time too and all commented on how great the venue was. The food was fabulous and the staff were so friendly and did everything we asked to help make our day special in whatever way they could. The Caves was the most amazing place to get married in and left a lasting impression on many people. For John and I, it will always be a very special place. Thank you for all of your help and for keeping me calm in the run up to the day!

  • I just wanted to email and thank you all so much for such a great day on 29th. Everything went exactly according to plan, except the Best Man's speech (mortifying!) and ran perfectly on schedule. Your front of house manager was a delight, please pass on my thanks to him for looking after us so well. Everyone absolutely loved the venue and thought it was so different. The food was exquisite and you had the tables laid out exactly as I wanted. Thanks very much again,

  • My daughter and son-in-law married in The Caves on 23rd July 2016. The venue speaks for itself and Ailidh, our wedding co-ordinator was fantastic in helping us about adding the personal touches on the day.What a lovely young and gracious lady! The staff were so helpful and cheerful even though we did run a little late due to the Bride arriving late.The meal was superb and service impeccable.Throughout the evening the staff continued in the happy cheerful manner that had been around from an early start.At the end of the night they helped in so many ways to arrange the return of the personal items we had used in adding personal touches. All guests commented on staff and fantastic food. In conclusion Ailidh in particular and the remaining staff catering ,bar ,and the security person contributed to making a very special day a relaxed and wonderful occasion for the happy couple and all guests.Many ,many thanks.X
