Hotel restaurant is new to The Neighbourhood

EDINBURGH hotel The Bruntsfield has expanded its offer with the launch of a new restaurant.

The Neighbourhood is positioned as having a “relaxed atmosphere reminiscent of an elegant home”. The hotel is promoting the space to diners, home-workers – who can use it as a work space with access to wi-fi and bottomless tea and coffee for £10 a day – and dog walkers, who are welcome in the venue’s ‘secret garden’ outside area. In the evenings the space will operate as a late-night cocktail bar.

The restaurant menu, which has a focus on fresh Scottish produce, includes dishes such as seared scallops served with smoked cauliflower puree and Stornoway black pudding; and haggis ravioli with crushed neeps, crispy potato and whisky cream sauce.

“We want The Neighbourhood to be an extension of our guests’ homes to unwind and reconnect with friends and family,” said Bruntsfield general manager, Alistair Bruce. “Somewhere to work and play with homely food, creative cocktails, and true Scottish charm – from our service to the suppliers sourced throughout our menu and our quirky design.”
