Galvin Restaurants appoints new executive chef in Edinburgh

Allan began his role earlier this month working with both Chris and Jeff in London to develop new dishes, and has this week begun overseeing the kitchens of Galvin Brasserie de Luxe and the Pompadour by Galvin, both within the five-star Waldorf Astoria Edinburgh - the Caledonian.

Allan was previously head chef at Galvin Brasserie de Luxe, from its opening in 2012 until 2014 when he left to pursue another role.

During his time at the Brasserie, Fraser led the team to win a Michelin Bib Gourmand in the 2013/14 guide, the only new award issued by Michelin in Scotland that year. He was also instrumental in the Brasserie being awarded Restaurant of the Year at the Scottish Hotel Awards 2014.

Jeff Galvin said: "I am thrilled to welcome Fraser back to the Galvin restaurants in Scotland. We worked particularly well together in the past when Fraser opened Galvin Brasserie de Luxe for us in Edinburgh in 2012, achieving a Michelin Bib Gourmand. Fraser will be at the helm of The Pompadour by Galvin where we are looking forward to welcoming our loyal guests back after our winter break."

Both dining outlets were opened by brothers Chris and Jeff Galvin as part of the hotel's £24m refurbishment in 2012.
