Squaremeal Review of Timberyard ?

Housed in a shabby-chic timber warehouse and one-time theatrical props store, aptly named Timberyard is rightly proud of its enterprising approach to foraging, butchery, curing and growing your own. The owners also support Scottish producers, as well as stuffing their drinks list with natural wines, floral cocktails and small-batch beers. Meals revolve around a choice of multi-course menus, with many of the seasonal dishes beautifully adorned with herbs and edible flowers from the Timberyard ‘patch’. Well-balanced small plates might range from cured sea bream with gooseberry, cucumber and dill to ox heart with tarragon, malted barley and wild leek, while bigger items could include lamb with black garlic, spring onion, turnips and nigella or halibut accompanied by cockles, clams, celery and white asparagus. For dessert, sweet strawberries might appear alongside lemon verbena, sheep’s yoghurt and elderflower. Private dining takes place in an old brick shed and there’s a sought-after south-facing yard for alfresco meals, while knowledgeable, enthusiastic staff complete the pacakge at this exciting Edinburgh destination.

    The cornerstone of the Timberyard’s menu is seasonality and local sourcing. To give our review a little more of a rounded feel, and to illustrate the menu is indeed ever-changing, we decided to visit on a couple of occasions, before delivering our verdict.

    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...
