The Radford family’s Scandi-influenced converted Victorian warehouse is “a delight for anyone looking to stray away from the beaten track” – not just for the cooking, but for its “interesting, natural and small-batch wines”. Regulars should expect significant changes, though, following the appointment late last year of head chef James Murray (ex-Lyles, Manoir aux Quat’Saisons and Nur in Hong Kong) and head pastry chef Richard Phillips (ex-L’Enclume and Waterside Inn). Chef Ben Radford, who runs the show with his brother Jo and sister Abi, is moving to a different role in the business.

“I would travel a LONG way for these exceptional, innovative flavours” says a London-based reporter about this Fountainbridge fixture, opened in 2012 in the “charismatic” space of a converted Victorian warehouse, and serving a selection of Ben Radford’s Scandi-influenced tasting menus (from four-courses to eight-courses), offset by a “long” wine list of exclusively natural wines from small European producers.

“Exceptional and interesting food” in the “atmospheric surroundings” of a Victorian warehouse can be a “stunning experience” at this modern, Scandi-influenced operation from the second generation of the Radford family (whose parents Andrew and Lisa ran popular Edinburgh restaurants Atrium and Blue).

For 31 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).
