Well today is our last full day in Edinburgh before we head back to the United States. Jen and I decided to stop at the Royal McGregor for a bite to eat and some drinks (Scotch flight for me). The Royal McGregor was busy, both the Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo and Fringe Fest crowds are starting to dwindle. However there is a contingent of protestors in Edinburgh, protesting Brexit.
I was saddened to learn that due to Covid-19, the Royal McGregor has had to close its doors for a final time.
Message from the owners of The Royal McGregor
It is with a heavy heart that we need to inform our dear customers that the Royal McGregor will not be re-opened by the McGregor family who have operated the site for the past 20 years.
With only 18 months left on our current lease the COVID-19 pandemic could not have come at a worse time. Despite our best efforts our landlord would not agree to a lease extension which would have made continuing to trade a viable option.
We have shared so many wonderful memories with our loyal customers, family and amazing staff and will miss you all dearly. Thank you for being part of our success story, we will forever be grateful.
Please share any pictures you have either enjoying our hospitality or working with us. It would be nice reminisce! https://www.facebook.com/TheRoyalMcGregor/
Best wishes for the future.
James & Marie-Claude
