Moira Alexander, co-owner of Spoon explains why this Edinburgh restaurant is perfect for festive dining


If you are looking for something new, fresh and original for the festive season, Spoon is just the place for you.


We like to do things differently. But you can be sure that whatever you choose to eat, it will be delicious.


Our Christmas menu starts with a glass of festive mulled wine to enjoy while you decide which of the tempting options to choose.


How about parsnip, chilli and pear soup to start with? Or gravadlax with dill mustard dressing and pickled cucumber; or game terrine?


If you like to celebrate Christmas with turkey, you can be sure to find it here. We add a tasty twist though, complementing the stuffed turkey leg with goose breast, three root mash and cranberry jus. Others might be swayed by our baked hake with roast sweet potato. And vegetarians will love our nut roast with mustard buttered leeks, baby potatoes and bread sauce.


What’s for dessert? Either a light and tangy pannacotta with rhubarb, or our mouthwatering sticky toffee pudding. If you prefer something savoury to round off your meal, a selection of Scottish cheeses is on the menu too.


It’s great value for money, at only £25 per person for three courses.
