The Little Chartoom Edinburgh restaurant opening
Two alumni of Edinburgh’s Castle Terrace are to launch their own restaurant in the city this summer.

Chef Roberta Hall and restaurant manager Shaun McCarron will open neighbourhood bistro The Little Chartroom in mid-June.

The 18-cover dining room will offer “French British-style cuisine” described as “simple and seasonal”. It will serve lunch and dinner Wednesday to Sunday and weekend brunch.

An open kitchen is being designed to break down divisions between back and front-of-house, with the chefs set to assist McCarron with food service.

Hall spent three years working at Tom Kitchin’s Michelin-starred The Kitchin before helping mentor Dominic Jack open Castle Terrace, where she went on to become head chef.

She met McCarron during her six years working at the restaurant, where he began as commis waiter and progressed to restaurant manager.

McCarron also spent time at Simon Rogan’s original Roganic pop-up in London, and he and Hall ran The Abbot’s Elm in Cambridgeshire from 2016-17.

The Little Chartoom has been named for Hall's love of sailing, and will feature artworks made from old shipping charts designed by her mother.
