A short trip from Edinburgh to South Queensferry finds you in the 18th century splendour of Hopetoun House – one of Scotland’s finest stately homes. Stables Kitchen (open from Friday 19th April until 29th September 2019) is in the less formal surroundings of the stables and courtyard and serves guests hearty and rustic fare, the perfect destination for a delicious lunch or a tasty treat with friends.

The Stables Kitchen operates friendly counter service and offers guests home-style fare such as pork and haggis sausage rolls as well as ‘made from scratch’ sweet treats and bakes such as our famously light scones and rich chocolate brownies. We strive to source locally where possible, ensuring we make the most of seasonal produce.   

We treat our guests like family and this shows in our casual but comfortable décor, with large cushiony sofas, long shared tables and even small tables and seats for the wee ones! We want you to know you can sit back, relax and let us look after you, whether it be a scrumptious lunch with your loved ones, or a catch-up with friends over our famed afternoon tea or even our Fairtrade coffees and delicious cakes. Have a look at this year's menu here

Whether you’re visiting Hopetoun House for the day, or simply want to get away from the hustle of the city and want to try our delightful homemade dishes and bakes, visit us for the next Hopetoun House season between Easter 2019 and 29th September 2019.

Whilst you're here you can purchase a house or grounds pass to spend the day at this five star visitor attraction. You can enjoy scenic walks and nature trails within the beautiful grounds and discover the stunning collections that fill the spectacular Hopetoun House. Find out more here.

Why not buy a gift voucher for Afternoon Tea and spoil your nearest and dearest in true style? Our monetary gift vouchers also make excellent gifts for friends and family and can be used across all of our cafes.
