BURNS SUPPERS IN EDINBURGH
Nine more sleeps…..Here follow-eth a wee round up of what’s happening in celebration of the Big Man himself, Robert Burns, on the eve of 25th January.

THE DINING ROOM 28 QUEEN STREET
Date night….it doesn’t happen very often so when it does you’ve got to make the most of it… Both partial to a tasting menu (with accompanying drinks natch) we checked out The Dining Room 28 Queen Street which is part of the Edinburgh Scotch Malt Whisky Society whose home is a stunning Georgian townhouse. Don’t be fooled into thinking this is a ‘members only’ affair as the Society has happily flung open its doors far and wide so that anyone can rock up and enjoy what’s on offer. Even us! Since the recent refurb they’ve tucked the members bar on the top floor of the Society but there’s a lovely new bar downstairs and a dining room on the first floor that we were welcomed to discover.

dine out with TIGERLILY EDINBURGH
Tigerlily Edinburgh, there, I’ve said it. So what’s the first thing that comes to mind about Tigerlily? Could it be Gok Wan on the decks?! Yep, that’s happened recently…seriously. Could it be that they have one of the finest cocktail lists in town? Is it your Saturday afternoon post shopping destination for a quick drink before dinner? All of the above? Continue reading
One of the best dining experiences we’ve ever had in Edinburgh.
Dining at the newly opened Norn*(in the site of the old Plumed Horse) is incredible and a few hours of your life that you will savour for a very long time.
With great consideration for ingredients, seasonality, and sourcing, and a focus on creativity Norn has a clear edge on other restaurants in town. Forget white tablecloths and hushed voices – the Rolling Stones are playing on the jukebox, the front of house have very cool moss linen aprons and you’ll get a visit from each of the chefs in the kitchen over the course of your meal. It feels young, different and very exciting.
Enjoy the extremely reasonable 3 course lunch for £20 otherwise indulge yourself in the 4 or 7 course tasting menus (with the option of matching wines.
Chef Scott Smith created Norn……….
Really want to go out to eat but
a) don’t have the energy
b) no babysitter
c) would have to get changed from your joggers and hoodie (depending on restaurant of choice….)
d) can’t drag yourself away from the last series of Game of Thrones so eating on sofa is the only option….
If any of those apply then click on Deliveroo and let the food come to you… Oh yes sofa surfers, this is probably the best thing that has happened all year (for you!). Continue reading
