We are currently on the lookout for a quality Sous Chef to come and join our new team here in the heart of Edinburgh.

Start a new story with us…

The Wordsmith is the start of a new chapter within the iconic & historic Scotsman building situated on Northbridge. Opening early Summer 2018, our new restaurant and bar will pay homage to the hustle and bustle of the former advertising room, where journalists, editors and quick witted wordsmiths would rub shoulders.

Just as The Wordsmith straddles both the Old & New Towns of Edinburgh; our new dining & drinking experience will combine the timeless elegance of the past with the energy of a bustling brasserie.
