    The sandwiches were excellent and we really liked that the scones with raisins also had some spices added, a different but lovely touch. The pastry for the little tart was crisp and buttery, as was the shortbread base for the strawberry shortcake. We also loved the little cup of soup, it was very similar to our grandmas soup. The staff were also very friendly and attentive. Overall an excellent experience.

    Lovely setting and very attentive staff. Salted caramel brownie is the best thing I have ever eaten in my life! This is a beautiful, grand setting that is well worth a visit

    Afternoon tea was excellent, the staff were very helpful, and the experience is one that I would be very willing to repeat.

    The only unfortunate thing was the disabled toilet in The Stables was out of order and I had to take my husband to the Ranger centre which was a very bumpy ride for him in his wheelchair.

    received a warm welcome from the staff. Food arrived promptly and was described perfectly by server. Particularly loved the pea and mint broth and the salted chocolate brownie. Beautiful surroundings, a relaxed and thoroughly enjoyable experience.

    I thought the afternoon tea was excellent. The sandwiches were so fresh with delicious fillings and the scones were lively. The choice of cakes was amazing and everything was so dainty - just as the perfect afternoon tea should be. There was no shortage of tea and the choice of teas was good.

    My friend and I enjoy trying different locations in and around Edinburgh for afternoon tea. Hopetoun House was not the best we have experienced but it was passable. The food was fine but neither of us was very impressed by the tea. The first we got was a couple of tea bags in a pot with no choice of teas which is traditional. When we asked for a refill, I think we were given the same pot simply topped up with hot water as the tea was so very weak we had to complain. Luckily, we mentioned this to the manageress who brought us a pot of proper loose leaf tea which made all the difference. The food was good with a nice variety.
