Leith’s favourite neighbourhood bistro is marking Valentine’s Day with a surprise five course tasting menu, cooked by award winning chef Roberta Hall-McCarron (formerly Castle Terrace, The Kitchin) and served by husband Shaun McCarron.

A labour of love for the couple, The Little Chartroom opened in June 2018, and has received a stream of praise, from food critics Marina O’Loughlin and Grace Dent. Dinner will be served from 5:30pm; and although the exact dishes will be a surprise, expect fresh seasonal ingredients in Roberta’s French-British bistro style.
