The Dining Room at 28 Queen Street is located right in the heart of Edinburgh's new town within a beautifully restored Georgian building, also home of independent bottler The Scotch Malt Whisky Society. Elegant and modern, the restaurant is yet inserted within high ceiling rooms boasting magnificent original plasters and features. Head chef James Freeman's cooking is thought around the freshness and seasonality of ingredients.
In this respect, all ingredients are sourced from local suppliers. His approach is more about trying to keep up with what is readily available in the nature, and local farms and fisheries are used as often as possible, when it's not actual week end fishing and foraging.
We offer diners the choice from our Menu du Jour, full A la Carte or our Taster Menu. The later is truly a sensational experience featuring a regularly changing five course menu including your choice of wines or whiskies, expertly paired for each dish by our sommelier.
