The Gateway Restaurant at RBGE

The Gateway Restaurant at the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh (RBGE) has earned a prestigious listing in The Good Food Guide thanks to the bespoke and innovative service provided by Sodexo Prestige.

The accolade is doubly satisfying for the team at the Gateway restaurant as venues run by major contract caterers are normally excluded from the guide.

In highlighting to publishers of the guide the restaurant’s unique service, focus on seasonal Scottish produce and culinary heritage and inventive menu, which includes produce from the garden, Sodexo Prestige catering services director at RBGE, Paul Mitchell, secured it’s place within the renowned foodies’ bible.

The Good Food Guide Consultant Editor, Elizabeth Cater, was hugely complimentary of the restaurant, saying: ‘The Gateway Restaurant is that rare thing – a good restaurant catering mainly for tourists via a hard-working kitchen that puts quality and seasonality first.

“Well done Sodexo for having the vision to put in place a talented head chef and give him the freedom to do his own thing. If only more visitor-led venues could be like this.

As well as catering for daily visitors, the Sodexo Prestige team handle around 90 wedding parties each year, as well as dozens of conferences, corporate events and other functions. RBGE is one of 17 top class venues where Sodexo Prestige operates in Scotland and over 50 across the UK.
