Our largest function room, the Lothian Room, seats up to 250 people theatre-style, making it suitable for press conferences, product launches and larger meetings. Decorated in classic Scottish style, it’s also one of Edinburgh’s most popular wedding venues. This large, flexible space can be divided into four smaller rooms, for parties of between 25 and 150.

We have three further rooms suitable for board and team meetings, training sessions, presentations, interviews and private dining.

All our meeting rooms come fully equipped with
• Air-conditioning

Mix business with pleasure

You can choose from a wide range of refreshments, including healthy options, and make use of our Craig’s Restaurant and Boston Bean Company Bar. And whether you’re planning a board meeting or a birthday bash, our dedicated Meetings & Events team will help you from start to finish. 

So when you’re hold business meetings in Edinburgh, or seeking a stylish, easily-accessible wedding venue, look no further than Thistle Edinburgh, The King James.
