Quiet Man Taverns, aka brothers Daniel and Finbarr McNally, has taken over The Dogs restaurant in Edinburgh and renamed it The Perch. It has had a £120,000, six-week refurbishment, with the total number of covers being increased to 68, while there’s also a 20-cover private dining room.
Daniel said, “The Dogs was a well-known restaurant in town for a long time but we are excited about what the future holds for The Perch. I’m confident the public will like the new look and more importantly the food. We are offering modern Scottish food at a reasonable price, food that people can relate to that won’t break the bank.”
All 13 existing staff members were retained, with five new recruits joining the team. The McNallys have owned The Kilted Pig on Colinton Road for 10 years and have owned the Scotsman Lounge at the top of Cockburn Street since 2015.
