Embracing the beauty of our surrounding area.

At The Garden Bistro we are embracing the beauty of our surrounding area. Saughton Park is one of Edinburgh’s hidden gems. Covering 34 acres the park encompasses the largest skate park in Scotland, playing fields, athletic tracks, children’s play parks amongst other public amenities.

The walled garden is full of beautiful hedges, flowers, trees, herbs, fruits and vegetables. From the Italian Garden to the Physic Garden the park is awash with natural beauty and is home to the only cast iron bandstand in Edinburgh which has recently been refurbished - an idyllic venue for small weddings.

In 2019 the park benefitted from £8 million of investment.

In 2019 Saughton Park underwent a massive transformation and has benefitted from around £8 million of investment. In addition to the financial investment, local community groups such as The Royal Caledonian Horticultural Society & The Friends of Saughton Park have been key in the regeneration of the area.

“We've been overwhelmed by the reception from the local community to The Garden Bistro. It's been fantastic to welcome groups of family and friends to enjoy brunch, lunch or dinner in the beautiful surrounds of Saughton Park's Walled Garden. ”

Christopher Davidson, Managing Director (July 2020)

We have 60 seats inside the Bistro with a further 60 seats outside.

A service window facing into the courtyard where a ‘grab and go’ menu is available with a selection of hot and cold drinks along with snacks, breakfast rolls, fresh soups, handmade pies and much more which can be purchased to be enjoyed within the park. The window will open for breakfast in the morning and then a wider menu throughout the day.

The Bistro itself offers a more comprehensive menu with seated meals an option from our seasonal brunch, lunch and dinner menus and also ‘grab and go’ items from our bespoke server area offering hot, chilled and ambient items including the option of breakfast rolls, handmade pies, fresh soups, sandwiches & cakes.
