The University of Edinburgh Hospitality and Events Collection has announced the opening of Bonnar’s Restaurant at The Scott Hotel in Edinburgh.

Bonnar’s takes its name from Thomas Bonnar, a distinguished Scottish interior designer and architect whose legacy is preserved in the restaurant’s opulent rococo room, complete with original ceiling fresco. The historic setting invites diners to step back in time whilst enjoying the views through floor-to-ceiling windows that overlook The Scott’s gardens.

Inspired by the very best of Scottish produce with both an à la carte and five course tasting menu, dishes include: venison tartare with smoked egg yolk and salami spice, barley risotto with peas and douglas fir, and chocolate, blackberry sorbet and buckwheat.

The team behind Bonnar’s champions sustainability, crafting dishes that highlight the freshest seasonal ingredients sourced from local suppliers, ensuring every plate tells a story. As well as sourcing produce locally, Bonnar’s also incorporates foraged ingredients from The Scott’s very own estate, including estate-produced honey, herbs and flowers.

Gavin MacLennan, Group General Manager at The University of Edinburgh Hospitality Collection said, “We are thrilled to unveil Bonnar’s, our exciting new restaurant at The Scott Hotel. This addition elevates the guest experience by offering Scottish flavours with an elegant twist. With a passion for fresh, local ingredients within a spectacular setting, Bonnar’s will not only be open for our guests, but will also be a vibrant addition to Edinburgh’s Southside dining scene and local community.”

Tables at Bonnar’s, which has 28 covers, are available to book here for Tuesday to Saturday each week.
