Gleneagles Townhouse to open in Edinburgh next month

Gleneagles Hotel will open its first venture beyond the Perthshire hills in its almost 100-year history next month.

Gleneagles Townhouse will be a 33-bedroom hotel, members’ club and all-day restaurant located at 39 St Andrew Square in Edinburgh.

The Townhouse and its all-day restaurant, The Spence, will open exclusively to members and hotel guests for an opening period before opening its doors to the wider public in early summer.

Originally home to the British Linen Company before becoming the Bank of Scotland, the building has undergone a five-year restoration by Ennismore Design Studio.

At the heart of the townhouse will be modern brasserie The Spence, led by head chef Jonny Wright. Signature dishes will include wild mushroom tart with goats curd and hazelnuts; whole roasted turbot with fennel and chilli; and Scotch baba with praline sauce and mascarpone for two to share.

The space will also house a central bar that sits underneath a glass-domed ceiling from which a seasonally rotating, locally inspired list of cocktails and local whiskies will be served.

The venue will also have a members’ lounge and snug where food will be served and roof terrace bar Lamplighters, which will be open exclusively to members.
