Our diners are often well travelled, but our dishes are more stay-at-home. We serve local and regional cuisine, making sure to trace the provenance of our food, focusing on fresh, seasonal supplies. Keeping food miles to a minimum, our Chef Gordon Inglis is incredible at creating succulent Scottish dishes, and our restaurant has been awarded the Taste Our Best accreditation.

Breakfast

From pork to fish, all ingredients we serve at breakfast have been locally-reared. We select organic rare-breed back bacon that has been dry-cured by hand, piece-by-piece, for 8 days. Similarly, we insist that our organic sausages are hand-made using traditional methods. Both come direct from George Bower Butchers. As for our smoked salmon, we obtain this from Hong Kong-born Eddie Kwok’ Marchmont Institution.

Monday – Friday 7am – 11am
Saturday & Sunday 8am – 12noon

Dinner

We source local and regional cuisine featuring ingredients farmed, caught or bred in Scotland. From farm or fishery to fork, we trace the provenance of our food, focusing on fresh, seasonal supplies. True to our name, we use charcoal to grill our meat, fish, poultry and game. Across all dishes, the burning embers add an authentic caramelised charcoal flavour. From Shetland rope grown mussels to Chateaubriand for two, we offer something for every taste.
