SquareMeal Review of Timberyard

Gold Award

Finding its home on Edinburgh’s Lady Lawson street, Timberyard is a popular spot for both residents and visitors to the city. The restaurant has been praised as a “wonderful space serving wonderful food” by readers, residing in a shabby-chic timber warehouse which had a former life as a theatrical props store once upon a time.

Timberyard is rightfully proud of its enterprising approach to foraging, butchery, curing and growing your own, while the “delightful” owners also source ingredients direct from producers located in Scotland. Those choosing to dine here can pick from various multi-course tasting menus, including a four-course dinner menu, a five-course lunch menu, a pre-theatre offering and both pescatarian and vegetarian tasting menus.

Many of the dishes served at Timberyard are beautifully adorned with herbs and flowers from Timberyard’s very own garden ‘patch’. Well-balanced dishes you may come across on your visit could range from cured scallop with horseradish, onion and apple, to venison with carrot, garlic, tarragon and chard.  

When it comes to dessert, you might see the likes of summer berries paired with sheep’s yoghurt, almond and basil, while Timberyard’s drinks list is stuffed with “hidden gems”, found within the restaurants wide range of natural wines.

If you’re not in the mood for vino, try out a beer from a small-batch producer instead or choose a tipple from Timberyard’s fun selection of floral cocktails, with combinations including gin paired with gooseberry, honey and sour beer or a blend of spiced whisky, clarified milk and douglas fir.

Those looking to add a touch of exclusivity to their dining experience can book out the old brick shed for any private dining functions such as celebration dinners and birthdays, while the south-facing yard is much sought after for al fresco meals in the sunshine. Enthusiastic, knowledgeable staff and charmingly rustic interiors add the final gloss to this idiosyncratic Edinburgh destination.
