#EH Dinner 25 February at 7pm – The first of our exciting #EH Dinners takes place on February 25th at 7.30pm.  Each month we feature one of our amazing local suppliers from within the Edinburgh postcode.  They produce the product, we produce the dinner!  In February we showcase Whitmuir Organic Farm at this special event.  The farmers themselves will attend the dinner and tell you all a little bit about the farm, the produce and the way that we work together to keep things genuinely local, ethical, sustainable and in this case, organic.  The chefs are featuring Lamb on this occasion. You will experience a divine 3 course dinner with a welcome drink, fine company and a great atmosphere.  Look forward to seeing you there. 

The Larder Bistro – Our Bistro tucked away on the corner of Alva Street in the West End is nearly always described as a hidden gem. Our menu changes monthly, we have a special dish each day, Tuesday night supper club – pre theatre menu ALL night J Friday night is Steak and Craft beer night and each month we feature a different organic animal on the menu, butchered expertly by the chef and inventively used from nose to tail. Laid back and cosy vibe which is how we like it. We are open from Tuesday to Saturday for lunch from 12 – 2.30, for dinner from 5.30 – 10pm.

Our menu offers a variety of vegetarian dishes, and we have a separate vegan menu. We are also happy to cater to other dietary requirements. Because all our dishes are made fresh in the kitchen, if there is anything specific you require or would like information about please just ask one of our friendly staff.
