Square Meal Review of Timberyard ?

Housed in a shabby-chic timber warehouse and theatrical props store, this fascinating addition to the Edinburgh scene comes courtesy of Andrew and Lisa Radford – one-time owners of the famous Atrium restaurant. Their son and daughter are also on board, along with a “bright young team” who understand all about foraging, butchery, curing and growing your own. The result is a “new Nordic-inspired” enterprise and urban eatery for our times, offering an “expertly sourced” seasonal menu loaded with on-trend flavours: duck heart, liver, mushroom and buckwheat; beetroot with smoked curd, ramsons and spelt; halibut and lobster with peas, broad beans, lovage, leek and potato. Desserts are out of the same eclectic mould – think a breakfast-style assemblage of honey, nut, lemon thyme, oatmeal and milk. Drinks include lots of “serious” floral cocktails, plus Scottish ales and eclectic wines galore. Private dining takes place in an old brick shed, and there’s a sought-after south-facing yard (complete with fire pits and a veg patch) for alfresco meals.

    On our first visit, Timberyard was top of the list of “hot new places” in Edinburgh, closely pursued by the Galvins’ twin-pronged attack at the Caledonian Hotel, and the Gardener’s Cottage, although the latter was probably just about reaching the point where it was bedded-in...
