Gordon Ramsay secures former Drake & Morgan site in Edinburgh


Chef Gordon Ramsay will open his first Bread Street Kitchen concept outside of London in the former Drake & Morgan site on Edinburgh’s St Andrews Square.

Bread Street Kitchen will occupy 3,728 square foot on the ground floor and a further 3,357 square foot on the first floor. Bread Street Kitchen currently operates from four locations across London.

Said Andy Wenlock, chief executive Gordon Ramsay Restaurants, “We have taken our time to look for the perfect location for our first Bread Street Kitchen & Bar outside of London and we are delighted with the site we have chosen in Edinburgh.

“Such a vibrant city with a cool food scene, it really feels like the perfect match for Bread Street Kitchen & Bar. All the team are looking forward to bringing this popular all day dining concept to our new neighbourhood guests later this year.”

The concept offers ‘sophisticated, yet approachable all day dining’, inspired by classic Ramsay dishes.

Earlier this month, Drake & Morgan said it has been served with notice by the landlord, and announced plans in April to close three sites, which did not include the Refinery in Edinburgh. The company, which runs 22 venues in London, Manchester and Edinburgh, said it was taking action to survive the challenging trading conditions brought on by the pandemic and was seeking the support of its landlords to secure the future of the business by moving to a turnover-based rent model.
