Harden's says

Star Edinburgh chef Tom Kitchin opened this new restaurant on the Bruntsfield site formerly occupied by his bistro Southside Scran, which closed down in 2020 after barely a year’s operation – a victim of both flooding and the pandemic.

Tom Kitchin’s “fantastic” follow-up to his short-lived bistro Southside Scran, which shut in 2020 post-flood and pandemic; this “informal” yearling turns out relaxed Scottish dining, combining “great food and great service from a well-managed team”. Kitchin’s empire currently includes The Bonnie Badger in Gullane, East Lothian; Stockbridge pub The Scran & Scallie; and his acclaimed Edinburgh flagship, The Kitchin.

Summary

Tom Kitchen created this new gastropub to replace his bistro Southside Scran, which closed down in 2020 after barely a year’s operation: a victim of both flooding and the pandemic. It opened in August 2022, too late for our annual diners’ poll – reports please!

For 33 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
