Stockbridge & Dean Village
Just downhill of New Town and attractively straddling
a river near the elegant Royal Botanic Garden, it’s
small wonder that Stockbridge became one of the city’s

fallen away as its residents have matured and the area
has gentrified. Some second-hand shops cling on, but

Description
The cuisine at our restaurant in Edinburgh is natural, fresh and often organic, with ingredients farmed, caught, raised or bred in Scotland. Our beef has been raised in a traditional and sustainable manner in the wilds of the Scottish Highlands, our rare-breed pork and lamb are organically farmed in the rolling hills of the Scottish borders and our fish is from the Highland lochs and North Sea. With over 25 Scotch whisky blends and single malts, our bar also focuses on local flavors.
