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.

    Rhubarb is an absolutely delightful place. Lovely ambience - relaxed but with attentive and non-invasive service. We had the set menu which was excellent value at £22 for two courses. We went straight to the main course to ensure we had room for pudding afterwards. The roast beef was so nice. (My only complaint is that there wasn't enough gravy (or sauce or jus) but that's my complaint wherever I go!). We had coffee afterwards and the petit fours were gorgeous. We've booked to go back for the festive afternoon tea in December so I'll look forward to that experience very much.

    Rhubarb at Prestonfield House is a hidden gem of a venue. The dining rooms are small and intimate, but beautifully presented with traditional & period furnishings and dressed with fine art & some fascinating artifacts. The staff are all top performers; attentive, helpful, cheerful and well informed. Nothing is a problem. The food is awesome, exquisitely presented in well-judged portions that don't leave you feeling overfed, especially as you'll be unable to stop yourself emptying the plate. This also means you'll be tempted to finish with one of their fine deserts. Great ambience, service and food.
