“The Radord family excel at this great space” – a converted warehouse with outside terrace near the Traverse Theatre. “Tastebuds are tantalised and challenged, but in a good way” by the “fascinating” Nordic-inspired cuisine, and it’s an “exciting” venue – “lovely lighting, candles and woodburner” (and “great cocktails”) – even if “you never feel hip enough to eat there”.
“Scandinavia meets Scotland” in this “forgivably pretentious”, “hipster” hang-out – “a converted brick warehouse, with outside terrace in an unremarkable street”, near the Traverse Theatre. “Sustainable is the watch-word”, on the “eclectic” menu – “it’s an amazing place to sample local produce”, with “great cocktails”.
With its “postmodern industrial setting”, this former costume store, near the Traverse Theatre, is now the “coolest” venue in town; sample its “imaginative” menu (strong on “unusual locally-foraged vegetables”), and then “relax with a post-prandial drink by the wood-burning stove”.
This converted warehouse – built as a prop and costume store – near the Traverse Theatre, has been “beautifully renovated” by the Radford family; it’s now a “trendy” hang out (“just the right side of pretentious”), with “exceptional” cocktails, and where the food’s “very interesting” too.
Timberyard Restaurant Diner Reviews
"Really inventive location and cooking to match. This is rightly highly recommended in Edinburgh. Mainly a large room (there is a garden but it was too cold in August...) with wooden table, logs to hold the water jugs (both still and sparking are offered) and well spaced so you have privacy - the high ceiling absorbs noise. The menu is limited but it is more than enough for all tastes."
