The presentation & selection of treats on the afternoon tea was faultless. Very nice indeed. The atmosphere was very enjoyable, relaxed & classy. A wide range of cakes, so definitely something for everyone. I would definitely recommend it.

The Dungeon Restaurant and The Orangery at Dalhousie Castle sit in a 13th-century fortress on the banks of the River Esk. The fine food from local produce has earned the venue 2 coveted AA Rosettes.

The Dungeon Restaurant menu offers gourmet Scottish and French dishes in the unique setting of the castle’s historic dungeons. The rich ingredients and exquisitely presented creations are befitting of the elaborate location, with dishes that include roast partridge with a purée soubise, served with creamed haricots blancs and pickled girolle mushrooms. Elsewhere on the menu, try loin of pork with crackling and apple and bramble compote, or the aromatic cod with pak choi, smoked mussels and lemongrass sauce. The Orangery offers a more informal alternative, with views of the river and surrounding woodland. The menu is a lighter selection of contemporary Scottish and European dishes, with the same commitment to quality, local ingredients.

Afternoon tea at Dalhousie Castle offers a traditional, sophisticated experience to match the unique setting. Alongside classic finger sandwiches, cakes, shortbread and scones, enjoy a glass of Champagne at one of Scotland’s most impressive dining spots.

Just 8 miles from Edinburgh city centre, Dalhousie Castle in Bonnyrigg is surrounded by idyllic countryside.
