Featured Livingston Restaurants
1. Number One, Balmoral Hotel British, Modern restaurant in Edinburgh 1 Princes Street - EH2
Chef Matthew Sherry has now had a year at the flagship dining room of this Edinburgh landmark, which manages to be “incredibly grand and imposing” for somewhere in a windowless basement (“the tables are all so far away from each other!)”. Long known as one of Scotland’s foremost restaurants, ratings here haven’t skipped a beat despite Michelin having removed its star on the retirement of Jeff Bland. Service still “runs like clockwork”; and on the basis of the high-quality reports we receive (one such: “we have been for dinner twice in the last six months and had the seven-course set menu with matched wines both times… expensive but worth it”) the Tyre Man owes them their star back some time soon.
2. Aizle Scottish restaurant in Edinburgh The Garden Room in The Kimpton Hotel, 38 Charlotte Square - EH2
“A lovely setting in the atrium that’s not too formal and with a pleasant buzz” sets the scene at Stuart Ralston’s bright, glass-roofed hotel dining room (he and his team moved on from a previous venture of the same name in Newington a couple of years ago). All reports acclaim “outstandingly good and inventive cooking” from the six-course menu (going up to £105 per person in 2023 from £85) and “friendly service”.
3. Bridge 15 at The Bridge Inn Scottish restaurant in Ratho 27 Baird Road - EH28
2019 Review: “Sit next to the canal and watch the world go by” on a sunny day at this “excellently situated” and well-known pub (which you can cycle to, down the towpath), where chef Ben Watson delivers “very pleasant well-cooked food” with produce from the pub’s own walled garden and pork from their own pigs.
