Edinburgh Michelin-starred Restaurant Rolls Out Four Day Working Week

Edinburgh’s Michelin-starred restaurant with rooms 21212 in Edinburgh is introducing a four-day working week for its 20 strong team.


From November, 21212 will be putting its team’s work life balance first as they reduce hours and maintain salaries. The aim is to allow this change to fuel the team’s creative flare and produce dishes better than ever before.


21212 is Edinburgh’s only Michelin star restaurant with rooms situated on Royal Terrace.


Co-owner and chef, Paul Kitching said, “This is a tough industry and we thrive on the energy and passion behind our chefs. We are about constant innovation and re-invention of dishes and the creativity needed for this is incredibly important. We believe that by reducing our days that this creativity will grow and we will be able to push our menu and dishes to another level. I am really looking forward to the future and to see how this change is going to see our restaurant flourish further."


21212’s restaurant will be open from Wednesday to Saturday and closed Sunday, Monday and Tuesday. Their rooms will remain open for seven days a week and continue to welcome guests from all over the world.


21212 recently retained their Michelin star for the ninth year in a row.

Paul continued, “This change comes at a brilliant time for us as we have just received our Michelin star for the ninth consecutive year. Reducing our days to four is by no means a way of scaling back, but a way for us to improve and grow further as we reach our tenth year on the Royal Terrace. Our rooms will remain open seven days a week so 3 Royal Terrace will continue to be busy welcoming guests throughout the week."
