About The Stables Kitchen @ Hopetoun House

The Stables Kitchen
One of the delights of Hopetoun is a visit to the Stables Kitchen, a clever and sensitive restoration of the 18th Century Adam Stables transformed into a comfortable and cosy eatery, complete with table service and a delicious contemporary menu. Only a few miles from Edinburgh, you can escape to another world and soak up the relaxed atmosphere within a spectacular setting.

Home Cooked and Freshly Prepared Menu
The ingredients we use in our cooking are important to us. Food provenance in the form of local, Scottish, good welfare and ethically traded ingredients is a key element to ensure we are providing fabulous food quality with minimal environmental impact and are supporting the local economy.

We love celebrating what Scotland has to offer, and our chefs prepare our menu using seasonally Scottish ingredients wherever possible. The eggs in our baking are Scottish free range and we’re proud to use Graham’s Family Diary milk, butter and cream throughout our menu. As well as this, our delicious Sunday roast dinners are a crowd-pleaser, using local produce and meat.

We do hope you enjoy your visit and agree that our menu reflects some of the best food Scotland has to offer. It is advised to book in advance to guarantee a table at your preferred time.



Traditional Afternoon Teas
For a special celebration, treat someone to a unique experience in style, and book a traditional full Scottish Afternoon Tea.

At Hopetoun House our Afternoon Tea is a gourmet delight offering filled sandwiches, homemade fruit scones with lashings of organic cream and Hopetoun strawberry jam, along with a fabulous assortment of freshly made savoury and sweet treats. Included is a pot of loose leaf organic, fair trade tea, speciality coffee or a rich Belgian hot chocolate.

We also have a wonderful selection of treats available on our children’s menu including our Afternoon Tea, specifically designed for small fingers.

It would have been really helpful to have signage and someone on hand to tell people where to go. We were not the only ones wandering around looking lost.

It was lovely if a wee bit expensive. Having said that one of our party was unable to make it due to illness and I was pleasantly surprised not to be charged for her. Also pleasantly surprised that those of us who didn't drink tea were provided with a soft drink included in the price. A lovely afternoon experience.

Afternoon tea was wonderful. The only thing that spoiled it was that screaming toddlers were allowed in. I don't think that toddlers should be allowed during the Xmas Fayre unless they are very well behaved. I am a grandmother and have nothing against children but this is not the time nor place for them.

Lovely experience. Well looked after by staff. Nice selection of food but perhaps too much emphasis on the sweet items? I would have preferred more savoury. Tables were lovely with a Christmas poinsettia, a tea light and crackers. Delightful occasion.

First time I had ever been to the Christmas fair and booked the afternoon tea as a surprise for my sister. We had a wonderful time! Food was excellent, staff were really lovely and friendly and quality was brilliant for the price. Will definitely book again for next year!

The Stables Kitchen itself left me feeling quite cold against the wonderful surroundings of Hopetoun House. The staff were attentive but never felt like we had a dedicated server which would have enhanced our experience. I personally only liked the filings in one of the sandwich choice. Might have been good to have been asked beforehand if the choice to be served was suitable. We asked for fresh plates after the sandwiches but were only given one plate for the two of us so my husband had to spread scones on a plate with remnants of the sandwiches on it. Have experienced other afternoon teas before and this sadly did not compare as favourably.
