A new restaurant with stunning coastal views is set to open in one of Scotland’s most picturesque waterside towns this summer.
The Lawn, which will open as part of the Marine & Lawn Hotels & Resorts collection at Marine North Berwick, will be accompanied by a stylish, laid-back bar and lounge, The Bass Rock.
MasterChef: The Professionals’ Chris Niven, previously executive chef at The Fairmont, St Andrews and The Scotsman Hotel in Edinburgh, will head up The Lawn restaurant.
The informal restaurant overlooks the green lawns from which it takes its name, and has expansive views across the walled garden, along the coast towards Fife. The Lawn will offer an all-day, seasonal, à la carte menu, as well as a set lunch menu that will change daily with dishes such as Whole plaice for two with seaweed, lemon & capers and Niven’s take on a classic Cranachan.
As well as The Lawn, Niven will also oversee the menus for the hotel’s bar and lounge, The Bass Rock. There will be a range of small and large dishes to choose from Loch Fyne oysters, Mackerel pâté and Steak and bone marrow burger.
Chris Niven comments, “I am thrilled to be launching the dining concepts for such an iconic property like Marine North Berwick. I have been championing Scottish produce for 20 years now, so getting to work with the fantastic local suppliers around East Lothian is a really exciting prospect. The menu is being created around the very best ingredients. Dishes will not be complicated; the flavours of the produce will really shine through. North Berwick is such a beautiful location with a real sense of community. It is not too far from Edinburgh as well, making it the perfect escape from the city.”
