Edinburgh’s burgeoning St Andrew Square is something of a hotspot these days, spilling over with big foodie names who’ve made the journey north from London. In fact, take yourself on a wander around the square and you might think you’re in the Big Smoke with The Ivy, Dishoom, Hawksmoor and Franco…
The Refinery St Andrew Square brings a touch of glamour to the city´s drinking and dining scene with a stunning setting that is sure to delight locals and visitors alike. From replenishing breakfasts through to power business lunches, late-night dinners, cocktails, masterclasses and pop-ups, the new bar & restaurant will be an all-day escape for Edinburgh’s most discerning drinkers and diners.
Spread across two beautifully designed floors – visible through ground to ceiling glass windows – and separated by a show-stopping spiral staircase, guests will be greeted by a beautiful bar and casual dining area, with a statement back bar illuminating the various bottles of wine and spirits available. Towards the rear is an intimate restaurant and open-plan kitchen with sit-at counter dining, bringing all of the action of the grill to diners who want a front row seat. Curiosity will almost certainly lead guests up the staircase to the restaurant’s library lounge where they’ll be able to sink into comfortable armchairs draped in fur. There will also be an alfresco terrace, complete with blankets and hot water bottles for year-round revelry.
The Refinery St Andrew Square will be keeping cocktails above the standards of even the most demanding connoisseurs, serving up seasonally inspired concoctions influenced by the latest global trends. The varied menu will have plenty to please. Small plates and mezze boards, ideal to share, will be available whilst larger mains – served from lunch to late – come in the form of beautiful burgers such as the buttermilk chicken burger or wagyu beef burger. Superfood salads and classics such as hot smoked salmon with betroot, greek yoghurt & horseradish; lemon chicken with sweet potato & caramelised onions; and braised beef shin with polenta are just a few examples of the dishes diners can expect to find. Those with a sweet tooth can indulge in a selection of moreish puddings.
Open seven days a week, The Refinery St Andrew Square channels everything people have come to love of a Drake & Morgan bar & restaurant, while adding bold new touches across all aspects from the fantastic drink and food to the inspiring interiors, ready for the new Edinburgh scene.
