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.

Not been here for an Afternoon Tea for a few years but it was as delicious (even more so) as I remembered it to be and so filling! Catered for allergy requirements and great for kids too.

Food was great but not worth an extra £15 each on standard afternoon tea, compared to what people on next table had. Staff were friendly and helpful, service was good.

This was my first visit and I cannot wait to come back for another afternoon tea! Everything was exceptional from the service (Juan) to the food. We were attended to right away and there was nit even a wait for our tea etc to be served. Next time I will bring my little girl so she can sample the kids afternoon tea. Thank you for a wonderful afternoon!

Good value for money, but would have preferred a table for 4 rather than a long table with a bench seat. Sandwiches, scones and cakes were all excellent.

While the food was above average and the waitress was pleasant. The service was bellow average. We had to ask for clean plates to use when eating our sweet treats,,then nask for our dirty dishes to be removed to give us more room to enjoy our second course. The surrounding were cozy and clean. Thanks for giving me this opertunity.

Had afternoon Tea for 4, service was excellent , thought that there could have been a better selection of sandwiches as part of the tea, also could have been displayed better.The cost is the same price per person as in a Edinburgh 5 star Hotel however standard not quite the same.
