The Stables Tearoom at Hopetoun House offers a quintessential Scottish experience in the grounds of this stunning stately home. Restored from 18th-century stables, the restaurant now serves up seasonal light bites and indulgent afternoon teas.

The Stables Tearoom menu uses locally sourced produce to make simple, hearty fare. Try a smoked Scottish salmon sandwich, the signature Stables club sandwich, or a freshly prepared soup of the day served with crusty bread or delicious Fife handmade Scottish oatcakes.

Afternoon tea at Stables Tearoom West Lothian is made from scratch and changes daily to incorporate seasonal, local produce. Indulge in a cake stand stacked with gourmet sandwiches, homemade scones and an assortment of sweet and savoury treats. The prosecco afternoon tea offers some extra indulgence, whilst a children’s afternoon tea is also served.

Hopetoun House near Edinburgh sits in a beautiful rural setting, 20 minutes from Edinburgh Airport.

    Lovely afternoon tea, particularly the savoury section which I've found can sometimes be disappointing but not here - it was excellent. The house looked amazing too!

    Afternoon tea was served on a temporary location. It was a pretty poor experience. We had a 92 year old with us and the room was cold. The 'prepared' fire in the grate remained unlit even though we asked that it should. The china used was utilitarian and not at all what I expected. We had to get up a couple of times to ask for attendance.
    A bit disappointed really.

    A lovely experience, the afternoon tea was delicious , the service was polite and attentive. Particular favourites were the tiny apple tarts and the carrot cake

    The interiors is clean and elegant, but it could have had a bit more character: some flowers, candles on the tables, staff that showed a bit more enthusiasm.
    Our waitress was sweet but clearly inexperienced. Our waitress accidentally spilled a glas of champagne on me and even though I know that happens and I wasn't angry there was little effort to make up for it. Ideally I would have like to have a sincere apology and maybe offer us a free glass of champagne. I thought it weird that the only staff was two young people with limited experience, I think the whole service would have benefitted from having one senior staff member there.
    The afternoon tea was good, but not exceptional.

    It was an excellent afternoon tea. The staff were very efficient and friendly. It was a lovely mix of goodies, particularly the soup and the posset.

    Have to say I have had a few afternoonteas at Hopetoun house but by far this was the best one. Cakes and sandwiches delicious. Will definitely be looking for this deal again for myself and girl friends. We had a bottle of bubbly as well reasonable price. Service very good.
