The Palmerston, a new dining concept located in Edinburgh, has officially opened its doors in the city’s West End.

Founders James Snowdon and Lloyd Morse have transformed the former 20th-century bank, located at 1 Palmerston Place, into a neighbourhood restaurant with a bakery, coffee shop, bar, and in-house butchery.

The venue said it aims to showcase the “best food and drink” from across Scotland and beyond, seasonal menus will feature produce from suppliers including award-winning Ardoch Hebridean Sheep and Edinburgh’s Welch Fishmongers.

The restaurant’s bar will also serve craft beers from Newbarns Brewery,gin made by Electric Spirits Co. 

The venue will also include an in-house bakery and coffee shop, freshly baked bread. Pastries will be served daily from 9.00am alongside coffee from Obadiah Coffee.

James Snowdon, co-founder and general manager, said: “We wanted a space that naturally synched with the building. The 14ft ceilings give a sense of grandeur and mixed with our laidback decor and furniture, we’ve created what we always wanted – a relaxed dining experience.

“Some of my favourite features include the bank’s original vault which is now the ultimate wine cellar and the oak doorways that remain untouched.”
