Guest Chef Series – Craig Wood

Calling all gourmands! Our Guest Chef Series is back and with a bang!

Thursday 30th May brings the hugely talented Craig Wood, chef and co-owner of The Wee Restaurant in North Queensferry and Edinburgh, to the Vesta kitchen.

Prepare for a taste bud explosion – Craig learned his craft in some of the country’s finest kitchens including Restaurant Martin Wishart and the Crinan Hotel and has secured rave reviews from critics across the UK for his culinary creations.

Craig will showcase his signature style over four courses including an amuse bouche. It’s £45 per person with a glass of bubbly on arrival and proceeds from the night will go to our partners, Social Bite to help end homelessness in Scotland.

This is without a doubt, ‘good food for a good cause’ at its finest! So, book your table now on 0131 220 0773 or email , quoting ‘Guest Chef Night’. A deposit is required to secure your reservation.

Keep your eyes peeled for further news as we have more amazing chefs lined up throughout the year – including the return of the one and only, Martin Wishart!

Vesta Bar & Kitchen is now closed. 

We'd like to thank everyone, our fabulous customers, suppliers, friends and family who have supported us over the last few years. Together, through our Pay It Forward service, we have served over 11.000 two-course meals to people experiencing homelessness which is, quite simply, outstanding.

With the sale of the building, while it's time for pastures new for owner David Hall and the team, we're delighted to say, our Pay It Forward service has a new home at The Bon Vivant on Thistle Street! This will start in January 2024.


All bookings at Vesta from Sunday 22nd October are sadly cancelled. A member of our team will be in touch with anyone booked for Christmas, as we would like to offer alternate venues for your celebrations. If you have paid a deposit, this will be refunded.

In the meantime, don't hesitate to contact with any queries.

Once again, thank you for your support  - we've had an amazing time on Queensferry Street and we know the spirit of Vesta, and our vital work, will live on at The Bon Vivant.

David Hall and the Vesta Team
