Scottish restaurants: Timberyard and Heron get Michelin stars
28 March 2023
The Michelin Guide in 2023 sees Scotland's total number of Michelin-starred restaurants increase to 12, combined with two restaurants in the capital: Timberyard and Heron
Bosses of Heron Tomazs Gormley and Sam Yorke were 'delighted' to be announcing the award on their social media accounts.
"ethos that centres around the local, the seasonal, and letting ingredients speak for themselves" - Sam Yorke
Timberyard was praised for its "rustic aesthetic" achieved by their venue - a repurposed warehouse dating back to the 19th century
The Michelin guide attributes their new star to an "ethos that centres around the local, the seasonal, and letting ingredients speak for themselves".
"It takes a lot of skill and no little ability to take just a few prime ingredients and produce dishes that are so well defined and satisfying – and the Radford family now have a chef who can do just that," it adds.
"You can warm yourself by the stove in winter or sit in the walled courtyard in the summer. The lovely service team are on the ball and the music’s great too."
