Cold Town House For Castle Views, Beer and Stone Baked Pizza

Why does pizza taste so good after a few drinks?

Combine day drinks with Edinburgh Castle views at Cold Town House (4 Grassmarket) then tuck into a stone baked Neapolitan pizza with flavoursome tomato topping and gooey cheese.

I am honestly salivating remembering this pizza lunch…

Cold Town House Pizza Bar Food Grassmarket Edinburgh

Pizzas are hand stretched and cooked in an artisan built wood fired oven from Naples.

There are ten pizzas all named after Edinburgh neighbourhoods or attractions (£10-15) and are six dips such as pesto to tomato chilli jam.

Mmmm pizza crust dipping.

Visiting with kids? Go for the bambino menu mini pizza.

Gluten free bases are available with any of the pizzas and vegetarian/vegan options included.

Sweet tooth? Try the Nutella pizza!

As the kitchen uses fine flour, you need to contact Cold Town House in advance to let them know about a severe wheat allergy.

Let the server know about other allergies when you order.

Wash it all down with a Cold Town House brewed beer or frose.

There’s not shortage of things to do near Cold Town House as it sits in the shadows on Edinburgh Castle, on the Grassmaket in the Old Town.

Walk off some pizza by heading up the Miss Jean Brodie steps of The Vennel to get that Instagram pic of the castle, bar hop through the Grassmarket, to the Cowgate and back up to the Royal Mile or wander up Edinburgh’s Diagon Alley, Victoria Street.

Pizza in Leith and Abbeyhill

Matto Pizza

Matto Pizza (12 Cadzow Place) is a little out of the way in Abbeyhill but the good news is that it delivers pizza around Edinburgh.

The shop itself has a few window seats but the space is pretty bagged up with delivery drivers.

Matto Pizza Edinburgh

Close by is a great pub called Safari if you fancy a pint while you wait on your pizza order.

The Belhaven Taproom is also nearby.

Matto’s Neapolitan style pizza dough is made from 00 flour and is baked at 500 degrees for 60 seconds or less. 

The ‘dough nerds’ use San Marzano tomatoes and Fior di Latte Mozzarella then your toppings of choice.

Pizzas start at £6.

Southside Pizza

Pure Pizza/Go Pizza

The name of this place has confused us for a while but both Pure Pizza and Go Pizza have the same address at 6 Morningside Drive so we’re going to assume they are the same pizza delivery in Edinburgh.

Pure Pizza can be ordered from Deliveroo and Go Pizza from Ubereats.

There’s a fair bit of variety with the Create Your Own 12 inch pizza including gluten free, dairy free, vegan and halal.

Pizza toppings include vegetables, meats and seafood. Choose between 1-4 for just under £10.
