Latest opening to be the cornerstone of the Morningside community

The exciting new addition to Edinburgh’s Holy Corner puts food and drink, provenance and family at the top of the menu.

McLarens on the Corner is the most recent opening for Scottish hospitality collection, Signature Group, home to a number of quality food and drink venues across Scotland.

Spilt across three floors, the restaurant, bar and event space will offer something for everyone, from breakfast to start the day, relaxing lunches, casual and formal dining, finished with an impressive cocktail offering.

The McLarens menu has been inspired by research trips around the world, bringing new and exciting concepts back to the capital for local residents to discover. Working with local Edinburgh producers such as I.J. Mellis and Andante Bakery, dishes include langoustine, monkfish and squid fritto misto and hand cut wild mushroom pappardelle.

Nic Wood, Owner of Signature Group said:

“We’re proud have opened McLarens on the Corner after many months of planning, designing, research and renovation.

McLarens on the Corner celebrates the work of former Edinburgh Lord Provost, Duncan McLaren, who served from 1833 to 1881. Described as the ‘rescuer of the city’, McLaren was responsible for restoring Edinburgh’s finances after it ran into bankruptcy.

As well as his financial expertise, in 1835 he pioneered free education for all classes, opened the Meadows to the public and established the Industrial Museum, now the National Museum of Scotland.

The family and dog friendly venue is the second new venue to be opened by Signature Group in the last 12 months. Flagship venue for Cold Town Beer, Cold Town House opened in Edinburgh’s Grassmarket in March 2019.

Find McLarens on the Corner at 8 Morningside Road, Edinburgh, EH10 4DD. The bar, restaurant and event space are open seven days a week from 8am until 12am and 8am until 1am on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays offering family friendly locally sourced food and drink.
