The historic mansion in the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh (RBGE) will open as a fine dining venue for corporate events for one month in December 2013.
Inverleith House is the world’s only art gallery based in a botanic garden and its 2012 exhibition by Luke Fowler was nominated for the Turner Prize.
Now Sodexo Prestige Scotland has been granted permission to transform the building into an exclusive fine dining venue in December, when guests will be served locally sourced and sustainable produce, including plants from the Garden, prepared by top chefs. It can accommodate up to 90 for dinner, or 150 for a drinks reception.
Paul Mitchell, Sodexo Prestige catering services director at RBGE, said: "We have longed for the chance to use this outstanding space for fine dining and show what is possible here.
"Given the cultural and historical importance of the building and the gallery, we are thrilled it has now entrusted us with this opportunity."
