New wine bar and restaurant set to open in Bruntsfield

Decanter, a new wine bar and restaurant, will open next month in Brunstfield.

The new wine bar and restaurant will open in December.

The aim of Decanter is to provide diners with a carefully selected wine list, served in a casual setting. Billed as a 'winery and dinery', the team want Edinburgh locals and visitors to enjoy the relaxed ethos, which owners hope will quash the wine bar stereotype.

The wines will be served with a menu of locally- sourced food, making Decanter as ideal spot for after work drinks or weekend socialising.

Jonathan and Billy, the restaurant’s owner and head chef respectively, want to make wine accessible and provide high quality food to the local area by creating a space that’s ‘not your average wine bar and restaurant’.

They said: "We feel that wine can often be intimidating, so we’re trying to take all that fuss away. Instead of stuffy and pretentious, think quirky pairings, cool labels, and just really great food. We clearly look casual with our beards and tattoos – we’re just two friends passionate about high quality food and wine in the local neighbourhood that we love."

Located on the former site of Inca, the restaurant’s launch will be in two phases, the first of which will take place next month with the opening of the bar and restaurant upstairs.

Phase two is scheduled for the spring and while details aren't confirmed, Jonathan and Billy hint at a private dining/speakeasy space downstairs, with an impressive cocktail list.

Decanter is set to open in mid-December, with more information available here.
