Once again we’ll have live music and dancing throughout, plus a countdown for the bells on our big screen and a live stream of the official fireworks.

All guests will receive a wrist band to come and go as you please, perfect should you wish to walk up Calton Hill beside Edinburgh Street Food for a fantastic view of the city’s fireworks or walk just 10 minutes to the street party… just know you’ll always have delicious food, quality local beers and cocktails, and a warm vibrant atmosphere for you to come back to!

Our line up of live bands will be published nearer the time.

Please note, in accordance with our licensing, children (aged 0-15 years old) must leave by 11pm and young persons (aged 16 or 17) must leave by 1am. Sorry about this – we don’t make the rules!

We can’t wait to see you to bring in 2025 in style! Edinburgh Street Food style 😎

Edinburgh Street Food is home to 11 traders and 3 bars. We’re typically dog friendly but don’t recommend bringing dogs on a loud and lively New Years Eve.

There is no seating plan – we have over 500+ seats and lots of standing room, plus room for dancing. Our brilliant team of hosts will work hard to get your party all seated together. We have long communal benches with nearby hooks to hang up coats and bags.

Tickets are just £10 per person (early bird) or £15 per person from October 2024 onwards. All ticket types are non-refundable. Tickets include entry, a great atmosphere and live music until 2am. Food and drinks are to be purchased separately on the night.



Group Bookings

We can’t wait to see you at Edinburgh Street Food! We are an independent street food hall and we have over 550 seats inside and out. We launched group bookings to help your party of 10+ people secure a table all together and have an epic experience at ESF. Don’t panic if you have a smaller party or don’t want to commit to a booking, we still have room for over 300 walk-ins any day at any time. If you’d like to make a booking for more than 60 people please email us at events@esf.ltd, we’ll be more than help to help.

Our group booking times are intentionally staggered to help our vendors keep up with the demand during busy service. If you can’t see the time you’re looking for – please walk in! We don’t take bookings on Saturdays.

Each booking gets 1 hour and 45 minutes on their table. 

Please note, our kitchens are open until 9pm on Sundays -Thursdays and until 10:30pm on Fridays & Saturdays. In July, August & December our kitchens are open until 11pm.

Ts & Cs 

We really rely on our guests honouring their reservations. If you need to make any amendments to your reservation, please do so as soon as possible through Resdiary or by contacting our fabulous front of house team on foh@esf.ltd. We do not have a phone number and cancelling bookings via social media won’t be accepted.

For all reservations, we require card details to secure your booking. These details are securely kept with a third party called Stripe and will only be charged if you don’t meet our terms and conditions:

  1. If for some reason you need to cancel your booking, you must give Edinburgh Street Food at least 24 hours notice before your reservation or you will be charged a £10 per person fee.
  2. If your party arrives with less than the number of guests originally on the booking, then you will be charged £10 per person for the missing guests.
  3. All bookings come with a 15 minute grace period. If you’ve not arrived at ESF within 15 minutes of your booking, your table will be released to walk-ins and you will be charged the £10 per person fee for every guest on the booking. Please bear in mind that we do not have a phone number – we really rely on you being punctual.

You’ll receive an automated email 48 hours before your booking, please do click to amend or cancel the booking, if required, once you receive this.

Our tables are long and communal – if your party doesn’t fill a whole table, it’s likely other customers may ask to sit with you.

ESF is suitable for guests of all ages, we’re buggy accessible and have lots of high chairs available. Please include all babies and children in your booking numbers and specify how many high chairs you’ll need so we can best accommodate your needs. We’re dog friendly too, don’t forget to ask our team for a water bowl!

Whilst we do see ourselves as a special occasion venue and will endeavour to meet any requests you might have, we’re a very casual street food hall and the ten traders (and additional guest traders) within Edinburgh Street Food operate independently from us. Unfortunately we can’t offer any freebies for Birthdays or unique celebrations, but we’ll be happy to store a cake for you.

By making a booking at Edinburgh Street Food you agree to our reservation cancellation terms.

We look forward to rustling you up an award-winning street food feast at ESF, beside the oMNi Centre on Leith Street, Edinburgh, EH1 3AU.
