About The Raeburn
Classic brasserie in Stockbridge
Originally an elegant Georgian home, The Raeburn has been transformed into a smart boutique hotel, bar and brasserie on Raeburn Place in Edinburgh’s Stockbridge. With stripped stone walls, gleaming glasses and plush, upholstered chairs, the brasserie-style restaurant is a chic spot for a romantic dinner, family celebration or meal with friends. When the sun shines, the lively bar spills out onto the well-used terrace at the front of the building.
Modern British cooking
The brasserie at The Raeburn specializes in modern British cooking with the occasional nod towards more exotic choices such as crispy squid on Cajun polenta or the onion bhaji burger. More traditional choices might be the smoked venison with a compressed gin Waldorf salad or the rump of Borders’ lamb with navarin vegetables and a tarragon cream sauce. Popular main courses include the venison and beef burger; the corn-fed chicken stuffed with boudin noir and hake with garlic sautéed potatoes.
Pride of place goes to the top quality steaks – sourced from the Borders – and seared in the blistering heat of the charcoal-fired Josper. Dessert might be a chocolate fondant, apple and almond rose tartlet or a selection of cheeses from IJ Mellis.
