Restaurant description

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

Please note that from 29 November 2019 to 5 January 2020, the table d'hôte menu is not available but diners can order from the festive menu.

    We dined early evening and had a very pleasant dining experience which was partially spoiled by the limited choice on the fixed price menu. If you wish to receive service second to none - it's the place to go - never seen so many staff for the number of diners. Food quality was good, quantity was a little small. Best value wine was the Chablis at [$] a bottle from the very extensive 20 page wine list.

    We ate at 18:15 - great timing for a leisurely dining experience. Taste and variety were excellent.

    Booked our table for 4 for 8.15 pm and only managed to start our main course at 9.30 pm. Slow but still very pleasant as we were with friends. Set menue was very good & very interesting but the drinks were way over priced. Gave up waiting on our coffee in one of the snug areas which was a shame. Would go back though & not order so many drinks !

    The whole experience was something else. We went for a combined birthday and anniversary and we could not fault anything. down side getting there, a taxi is best.
