The Stables Tearoom at Hopetoun House offers a quintessential Scottish experience in the grounds of this stunning stately home. Restored from 18th-century stables, the restaurant now serves up seasonal light bites and indulgent afternoon teas.

The Stables Tearoom menu uses locally sourced produce to make simple, hearty fare. Try a smoked Scottish salmon sandwich, the signature Stables club sandwich, or a freshly prepared soup of the day served with crusty bread or delicious Fife handmade Scottish oatcakes.

Afternoon tea at Stables Tearoom West Lothian is made from scratch and changes daily to incorporate seasonal, local produce. Indulge in a cake stand stacked with gourmet sandwiches, homemade scones and an assortment of sweet and savoury treats. The prosecco afternoon tea offers some extra indulgence, whilst a children’s afternoon tea is also served.

Hopetoun House near Edinburgh sits in a beautiful rural setting, 20 minutes from Edinburgh Airport.

    Loved the extra touch with the teacup of soup. I'm a savoury person so took the cakes home for my family but the food was fresh and very tasty. Couldn't fault the food or staff but the side room we were in was extremely cold and lacked atmosphere. Maybe having some background Christmas music on and heaters next time?

    We arrived at 13:15 for a 13:30 booking and were told that we wouldn't be allowed in until 13:30. We then didn't get to sit at our table until 13:45. It was another 20 minutes before someone came to take our tea order and our food finally arrived at 14:15. The food was nice although the cream had been missed out of most of the eclairs.

    It was nice however service could have better
    Food pleasant -but quite forgetable really
    All in all it was merely ok.

    Lovely afternoon tea with my mum. Staff really nice and attentive - food was lovely, really liked the soup and quiche idea on a cold winters day - thumbs up ???? As alway too much to eat so would be nice if there was a takeaway box rather than a wee bag to take them with us - that’s the only improvement I’d make.

    The restaurant/tea room was quite busy, but it was clear from the queue that there was NO organisation. We presented our email confirmation of our booking and I might as well have presented a roll of toilet paper. No one seemed to know anything about any bookings, luckily as we stood there a table opened and we were ushered into it. The service took sooooooo long we had to call a waitress over to take our order, it seemed that in asking the Tea to be changed to Coffee for the cream tea was like asking for the mathematical proof of the roots of an equation! The waitress could not grasp I wanted COFFEE with my cake not TEA! The Food took an age to come, once again the staff needed to be prompted - several folk who had come in AFTER us had got their food - we had only asked for soup and a sandwich! Once that came and went we AGAIN had to ask when our Cream Teas were coming, once the scones etc were delivered - we had finished most of them before we AGAIN had to prompt for the drinks! Dreadful service. The 2 stars are 1 for the nice surrounds and 1 for my Husbands Cullen Skink which he enjoyed!

    Big queues waiting to be seated but plenty of empty tables. Even when we told staff that we had booked for the afternoon tea they seemed to be clueless. After eventually being seated the wrong order was brought out and had to be taken away. Then we were just brought sandwiches and had to ask if we were getting our cakes. Also had to ask about our tea which someone had taken the order for. A bit chaotic. Food was excellent though.
