The Refinery rolls into Edinburgh

Refinery 1

The Refinery, the first Scottish venture from London restaurant group Drake & Morgan, has opened in the new Standard Life Building at 5 St Andrew Square in Edinburgh.

The two-floor, 160-cover restaurant is fronted with floor to ceiling windows and has a contemporary, industrial décor.

General Manager Sean Weeraratna said, “We’ve already had great feedback and are busy as we anticipated given our great East End location. The brand new building is amazing. The designers have done a fantastic job – visually it’s really impressive. In terms of design and atmosphere we are bringing a style of service from London to Edinburgh that is friendly, efficient and second to none. So far everyone is enjoying it.”

The Refinery also provides blankets and hot water bottles to diners in its al fresco terrace and window seating.

Sean added, “The hot water bottles are being refilled at least ten times a day so they’re definitely going down well!”
