The Bonnie Badger – Gullane, East Lothian

By CTH Editors

1 year ago

Chef Tom Kitchin wowed the world with Edinburgh hotspot The Kitchin, which saw him become Scotland’s youngest winner of a Michelin star in 2007. Just over a decade later, in 2018, Tom and his wife Michaela opened The Bonnie Badger, a modern Scottish restaurant with rooms, in the enchanting coastal village of Gullane, on the outskirts of Edinburgh. And, once again, Tom has nailed it with his ‘From Nature to Plate’ philosophy, combining French techniques with East Lothian’s bountiful larder. There’s an enviable range of dining options to showcase it, too, from à la carte dining at The Stables to exceptional pub classics at Broc Bar, seasonal favourites straight from the grill in the garden and carefully crafted afternoon tea. It’s no surprise that they are proud holders of both a Michelin Guide Bib Gourmand and 5 AA Gold Stars. But it’s not just about the cuisine here. There are 12 lovely individually designed bedrooms and one master suite, spread across the main house and two cottages, adjacent to the beautiful garden. Bring the whole gang – children are warmly welcomed with a special ‘Scallie’s Corner’ and ‘Cubs’ menu and it is dog-friendly too. 

Rooms from £225
