Seasonal cooking, social dining.

In 2012 chefs Dale Mailley and Ed Murray re-invented dining out in the capital with their restaurant The Gardener’s Cottage. The roaring success of their evening offering, a 7-course set-menu served at communal dining tables, proved that fresh, innovative thinking is a vital part of culinary evolution.

Dishes are artfully crafted from indigenous seasonal produce - including fruit and vegetables from the restaurant garden - by a team of creative chefs. The restaurant, a charming cottage of two rooms, is also open for lunch and weekend brunches.

Designed by William Playfair, the cottage was built in 1836 for the gardener at Edinburgh’s Royal Terrace Gardens. Today, the intimate atmosphere and warm ambiance allows the diner a real sense of escape from the busy city.
