Inside the prestigious Prestonfield Hotel is the opulent fine dining restaurant, Rhubarb Restaurant at Prestonfield Edinburgh. Within 20 acres of lush parkland, Rhubarb serves fine Scottish cuisine in 2 spectacular Regency dining rooms.

Opulent and theatrical, Rhubarb Restaurant exudes an almost regal feel with silk wall coverings, ancestral portraits and elegant purple and black décor throughout its 2 oval dining rooms. A kilted porter will escort you through and there are beautiful rose-filled gardens.

From the creator of the Witchery by the Castle, Rhubarb Edinburgh boasts an award-winning cellar which features a wine list of over 800 labels. Popular dishes on the Rhubarb menu use the finest Scottish produce including roast red grouse, sauerkraut and prunes with Armagnac or the braised haunch and roast loin of Glenalmond Estate roe deer.

In a beautiful countryside setting, Rhubarb Restaurant has chic salons and bars for cocktails, and divine drawing rooms in which to enjoy liqueurs by the log fires.

    We arrived on a wet windy day but was immediately welcomed by a man wearing a kilt and armed with an umbrella. From that moment until we left the staff were excellent,pleasant, courteous, willing to chat and well informed. We were shown into a warm welcoming lounge with sumptuous furnishings and a log fire and immediately offered refreshments. We then perused the menu and made our selection. After being taken through to the restaurant we were seved with the most beautiful 3 course lunch. The service and food faultless. We then returned to the cosy lounge for coffee and petit fours. The whole experience was wonderful and we hope to return again soon but this time hopefully for an overnight stay.

    My husband and I went here for dinner to celebrate his birthday. Wonderful experience from start to finish! The decor is magnificent...old Scottish country house in style with lots of antiques and paintings on the walls. Loved how all the waiters, doormen etc were dressed in kilts as well. Service was impeccable; attentive yet discreet, and nothing was too much bother. The staff are friendly, humorous and informed. We dined at 7pm and had the table for the whole evening making for a very relaxed occasion. The food itself was delicious. The portions are not big, but rich in flavour and beautifully presented. I have to say that by the end of the three course set menu which we had chosen, my husband and I were both saying we felt full and satisfied. The champagne we had as part of the book a table deal was also delicious. When we go back to Rhubarb, as we most definitely will, we will be ordering a glass of that champagne again! Lovely aperitif.
    Dinner was rounded off with coffee and melt in the mouth petit fours in the lounge. We were both sorry to leave after a wonderful 3.5 hours there. We will be back...soon!

    Excellent food, service and wine. The chairs in the dining room, (club armchairs) are comfortable to sit in, look great but they are too low for dining. This was the only downside as I felt my shoulders and arms sore stretching up from the low position and I'm tall. Worth having someone sit there through a meal and share my experience!

    Staff very friendly and enthusiastic about the house and service offered.

    Service excellent, dining experience beautiful. I went for items on the menu which normally I wouldn't have so I won't blame the chef for not enjoying things quite as much as I might have if I'd have chosen differently. It was a lovely evening and I would very much recommend Prestonfield - especially for a romantic dinner.

    We (4 of us) had an excellent dining experience at the Prestonfield Hotel, the ambiance of the Rhubarb Restaurant was very comfortable, the attention of the staff easily on parr with any other top restaurant and the food second to none. It was cooked to perfection with nuances of magical flavours teasing the palate, all in all a great day.

    This was a dining experience I will never forget. I was utter magic from the moment we arrived to the moment we left! I cannot recommend it highly enough. The staff were fantastic and the surroundings sublime. It was like stepping back in time and being invited to a sumptuous Country House for an intimate dinner! We loved it!!
