The Royal Yacht Britannia, Leith

This was another one of our tourist days when my parents visited. Given the yacht was not in commission when I was alive, I did not know much about it but it was actually pretty interesting! The best part though was the cafe up on the top deck as this was where all of the yummy food was!


All of their soups are gluten free and they had three gluten free cake options when I went in. I cannot remember whether they offered gluten free bread to make up sandwiches (if you had not guessed by now, I am not the biggest fan of sandwiches) but they had gluten free rolls for the soup!


I went for the soup of the day with the gluten free roll and it was delicious. Possibly the best soup I have tried in a very long time, could tell it was freshly made! I also had a gluten free fruit scone which came with warm and with a side of butter and jam. It was great (probably helped that it was warm) but did not have anything compared to Loudon’s scones! The milkshakes are a delight though, I went for the banana one!


Although my food was yummy and the restaurant itself is very pretty, especially on a sunny day, their website states that they offer gluten free afternoon tea which I had gotten extremely excited for. However, this is not advertised on their menu and by the looks of it, it does not look like the afternoon tea I see photos of on instagram with towers of different cakes and snacks to try.


One plus is that once you have paid to get on the yacht, you can then apply for a free years pass!
