Showcase at Inverleith House

February 19, 2013

Event: Showcase event at Inverleith House in the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh – 31st January 2013

Sodexo Prestige Scotland has been granted permission to transform the building into an exclusive fine dining venue for just 30 days in December, when guests will be served locally sourced and sustainable produce, including plants from the Garden, prepared by their top chefs. Sodexo work at some of the most unusual and interesting venues in Scotland, including castles, museums, stately homes, and other amazing heritage buildings.  Inverleith House will go straight to the top of the list of must-try destinations.

The showcase event proved that Inverleith House works as a fine dining venue, every bit as special as they hoped it would be. The fact it will only be available for 30 days is guaranteed to increase its appeal. Coupled with the quality of fine-dining , expectations are high.

Sodexo Prestige Scotland also run RBGE’s Terrace Cafe, East Gate Lodge Coffee Bar and run events and conferences across the site, including at its Caledonian Hall, all of which has helped the Garden earn coveted five star status from VisitScotland.
