Michelin Star Dining In Edinburgh


The cooking at the restaurant reflects Tom’s own Scottish heritage, blended with the inspiration he garnered working at some of the world’s leading restaurants.

Produce arrives at The Kitchin fresh daily, direct from land and sea, thanks to a close team of selected suppliers, showcasing the very best of Scotland’s natural larder. Chef Kitchin’s passion for his homeland shines through in every dish. The menu celebrates the bounty of Scotland’s natural larder, with fresh, seasonal produce arriving daily from a trusted network of local suppliers. Imagine succulent seafood plucked straight from pristine waters, or tender cuts of lamb raised on rolling Scottish hills. These ingredients become the foundation for culinary masterpieces, where Chef Kitchin’s innovative techniques and international experience weave a symphony of flavor.

The Kitchin’s setting adds another layer to the dining experience. Located in a converted whisky bonded warehouse in Edinburgh’s historic Leith district, the restaurant boasts a unique ambiance. Dine amidst the exposed brick and beams, a subtle nod to the building’s industrial past. But the true spectacle lies within the heart of the restaurant – the kitchen’s glass window. Here, guests are treated to a captivating performance as Chef Kitchin and his talented team work their magic, the rhythmic clatter of pans and the tantalizing aromas creating a mesmerizing culinary theatre.

Opening Times

The Kitchin is open for lunch and dinner Tuesday – Saturday.
