The Edinburgh Literary Pub Tour - 18th January 2008

Literary Supper packages

We would recommend that you give yourself at least ONE HOUR for dining prior to the tour beginning at 7.30 pm and TWO HOURS for group bookings and pre-suppers at The Café Royal. The total price for your literary lunch or supper is inclusive of the tour cost. On receipt of your booking reference, the bar staff at both The Café Royal or The Ensign Ewart will issue you with a ticket for the tour. From there, all you have to do is sit down and relax, enjoy your meal and prepare yourself for an award-winning, dramatised literary tour of Edinburgh - against one of the most spectacular and historical back-drops in the world – recently awarded the first ever title: UNESCO “City of Literature”!

Please be advised that we require a minimum of two days notice for all literary lunch and supper packages. (unless by special arrangement over the telephone).

For confirmation on the day, please give the respective pub a print out of your bookings page and give the name used to confirm your booking through our site if it is different to that on the booking form.

No refunds will be issued for any reason whatsoever, once the booking request has been confirmed by The Scottish Literary Tour Trust and subsequently relayed to the client. If we are fully booked on the date of your preferred literary dining package and are unable to accommodate your request or able to secure an acceptable alternative, we will issue a full refund to your credit card company within 24 hours. Please note that places on The Edinburgh Literary Pub & Bus Tours may still be available, irrespective of dining capacity at either The café Royal or the Ensign Ewart.

*NB please note all literary lunch and supper packages are inclusive of the tour price.
