Geoffrey Smeddle protégé to take over Edinburgh restaurant

Chef Scott Smith, a protégé of Michelin-starred Geoffrey Smeddle, owner of The Peat Inn, is taking over the site of the Plumed Horse on Henderson Street in Edinburgh's Leith to open a new venture called Norn.

The 36-cover restaurant is set to open in early May and is named after an ancient Scottish language, paying tribute to Scotland's food landscape and heritage.

It will offer a fixed set menu of four or seven courses that will change regularly and reflect the best of Scottish produce.

Smith has spent 18 months building relationships with local producers, including butchers, foragers, farmers and seafood specialists.

The wine list will be looked after by sommelier Sandro Colavolpe who has come from Brawn in London and previously worked at Terroirs.

There will be seating at tables for 32, with four seats at an ash wood bar overlooking the pass.

The chefs will bring dishes from the kitchen to the table.

The restaurant will be open from Thursday to Saturday for lunch and Tuesday to Saturday for dinner.

The four-course menu will cost £40 (plus £35 for matching wines), £65 for seven courses (plus £60 for matching wines), and £20 for a three-course lunch menu.
