Afternoon tea was excellent, among the best we've had, with pleasant service. Will certainly return.

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.

    The Stables was cold. Felt chilled. Noticed lots of people kept coats on
    Burger whilst very tasty was just warm. I like hot food to be hot. Good price with Itison voucher but wouldn't have liked to pay the full price.
    Have been a few times before this visit, will probably return

    This is the second time we have visited stables for afternoon tea and will definitely be back again

    The Stables restaurant is a large welcoming space,where tables are just far enough apart for privacy. The staff are very warm,professional, friendly and helpful. The tables are traditionally set with white table cloths,flowers and silver ware.
    We had afternoon tea,which came on a traditional three tear cake stand and started with an amuse bush carrot and sweet potato soup....lovely.... then we worked our way through a selection of crust off sandwich triangles,mackerel,ham,egg a savory pastry then mini plain and fruit scones with cream and raspberry jam,mini fruit pastry,fruit mousse and an absolutely scrummy salted caramel opera style cake...... We started with cool sort drinks and ended with tea and coffee. Altogether a very nice afternoon and next time we will buy a ticket and view the house as well.

    Booked afternoon tea through Itison for the day following fathers day as part of my fathers day gift. A friend recommended the afternoon tea so thought I would give it a try. It was lovely. The waitresses are pleasant and friendly she took our hot drinks order and came and asked later if we wanted anymore hot drinks. There was a small cup with carrot & sweet potato soup which was lovely. 3 types of sandwiches, 2 mini quiches, 2 scones each one fruit & one plain with cream and jam. The top plate had a lovely selection of cakes. My favourite was the lemon parfait served in a small glass. My dad really enjoyed his afternoon. I would definately like to return and I would recommend their afternoon tea.

    Excellent afternoon tea, much higher quality than many I've been to. What wonderful surroundings too at Hopetoun House. We struck luck as there was a Rolls Royce Rally there and a pipe band from George Heriot's School.
    On a minor note the decor would benefit from some colour, maybe some wild flowers on the table or a couple of floral arrangements in the stables.
