Championed by Elle magazine as 'Edinburgh's most indulgent retreat', Afternoon Tea at Prestonfield presents a historical setting, filled with luxury. Guests can bask in the lavish dining room, or the rolling acres of the garden during summer.

Showcasing the finest Scottish produce and time-honoured flavours, the Prestonfield menu presents a nostalgic selection for afternoon tea. Dainty finger sandwiches are filled with honey-roast Ayrshire ham and mustard, whilst sweet options include homemade pastries, and fruit scones lathered with jam and clotted cream. Mini desserts sit atop the assortment, with flavours including dark chocolate éclair, or clementine cheesecake.

Housed within a site dating back to 1687, the dining room at Prestonfield Edinburgh is filled with rich plush fabrics and baroque-style features. As well as a range of fine leaf tea blends, Prestonfield offers an indulgent champagne accompaniment.

Set within 20 stunning acres, Prestonfield restaurant is surrounded by lush greenery. Holyrood Park is just 5 minutes’ walk away.

    Wonderful setting and atmosphere. Reception staff were charming and the location and grounds, as always, didn't let me down. The only disappointing aspect was the service was very slow (although it was busy) and they forgot every drinks order! My orange juice didn't arrive. Later, I had to ask twice for a second coffee and then twice again for glasses of water. I highly recommend the window seats, which have a beautiful view.

    Prestonfield is one of our favourite places to visit.
    Afternoon tea was very good as usual except for one small point - the bread on the sandwiches was not soft and fresh as it should be.

    It was great- exceptional service, choice of room for our party of 7 ,good balance of sweet and savoury -3 sandwiches 2 scones ,2 little savoury amuse bouches,4 2bite cakes and a huge pot of tea from a fantastic selection.The bonus glass of fizz because we had to wait for our table was an unexpected bonus. A real treat.

    The staff we amazing and cakes and coffee gorgeous. The scones were flat I make better and the haggis Bon Bon was greasy. I would not complain to staff as they were a triumph but it was not worth £50 at all. Very disappointed but staff made the place

    The setting was beautiful and we thoroughly enjoyed tea. We would have preferred to have a slightly larger portion of savoury sandwiches to balance the sweets.
