The Royal Deck Tearoom

Ocean Terminal is currently undergoing redevelopment, adding new leisure and retail businesses, as well as residential spaces. As part of this redevelopment, Britannia will also be gaining a new Visitor Centre and Gift Shop which will involve us operating out of temporary accommodation whilst these new facilities are being created.

Whilst you are visiting Edinburgh's top attraction, why not visit the Royal Deck Tearoom? You can enjoy freshly prepared, homemade food, stunning views and a warm welcome.

The menu includes speciality coffees and cocktails, tasty soups and sandwiches and mouth-watering cakes and scones, all made on board in our Royal Galley. Perhaps treat yourself to a Champagne Cream Tea in the very same spot where the Royal Family would have played deck games and entertained?

Prices and information in sample menus below are correct from March 2024 and may be subject to change.
