We had to change our booking from Thursday night to Saturday night due to illness. The staff were excellent and accommodating. We had a fantastic night once again at this fabulous hotel. The ambiance in Rhubarb is just perfect. My husband had the guineafowl and even though my fish dish was excellent I did have food envy. Thank you Prestonfield for making Saturday our Valentine's Day.

Rhubarb is one of my favourite dining establishments in Edinburgh; it's luxurious and opulent, but without any pretentiousness. Located within the stunning Prestonfield House Hotel, the ambiance and decor are both incredible. The circular dining rooms are adorned with Victorian style drapes, rich fabrics, and antiques, and the large windows provide views of the beautiful grounds and Arthur's Seat in the distance. 

I've been to Rhubarb twice - once for dinner and once for afternoon tea - and both were fantastic experiences.

I sampled a three course dinner in October as part of the Edinburgh Restaurant Festival. Soup, hake, and a chocolate lava cake - all three courses were beautifully presented and delicious. We finished the meal with a cheese board, which was served in one of the drawing rooms on the upper level. Four Scottish cheeses, quince paste, truffled honey, and oatcakes - it was divine!

Champagne afternoon tea was also delightful. It may not seem like a large amount of food, but my friend and I both left full and satisfied. There's an assortment of sandwiches, two savoury items, scones with clotted cream and jam, and various cakes and sweets. Standouts include the fresh scones with home-made raspberry jam, goat cheese pastry, and chocolate passionfruit macaron. The champagne was lovely as well. 

The service is top-notch, and every staff member is friendly, welcoming, and helpful. 

I can't recommend Rhubarb highly enough!

This place is spectacular! The location is stunning. Countryside villa with dining Rooms, details are incredible, service kind and elegant but not too much, even in jeans you can feel comfortable. The lounge rooms upstairs are my favourite part, feel s like going back in time. Not cheap at all but worth every penny

I decided to book dinner at Rhubarb for the Edinburgh Restaurant Festival, for my boyfriend and I. The Restaurant Festival is a great chance to try fine dining restaurants at a discount price. Rhubarb has an excellent reputation; James Thomson has a few high class restaurants in Edinburgh, because of this my expectations were very high.
I love Prestonfield House, it is a beautiful building and perfect for a cold Autumn/Winter evening. The restaurant is filled with heavy drapes and warm, crimson colours. The service we received here was great, except we had to ask for the Edinburgh Restaurant Festival menu, despite stating that was the menu we wanted when booking. Also the menu that is published online for the Edinburgh Restaurant Festival is different from the one we were given. Luckily it was sill a great menu.
To start, I ordered the salmon, followed by the hake and finally, the chocolate dessert. I thoroughly enjoyed my entire meal, especially the chocolate desert, which was a chocolate molten lava cake. I would The best part is that I got all of this delicious food for £25. I was pleasantly surprised to find that Rhubarb offer a 3 course menu for £35 out with the festival, which would definitely encourage me to go back. I would also go back for a special occasion, as it is a lovely setting with a very exclusive feel.

I was actually upstairs in what used to be the smoke room - nestled by the fire and under plaster cupids for afternoon tea (which included a cheeky gin and tonic).
The food was plentiful and pretty well faultless - delicious sandwiches, mini savoury bites, plain and fruit scones with jam and clotted cream and four lovely little cakes.
The tea itself was a little disappointing and I would say service was a little off (the door staff were lovely and attentive though). 
It wasn't all that practical having everything sit on a narrow, soft footstool (with our gin on the floor) though I suppose it added to the casual sumptuousness.
But it's the kind of place I could spend hours in given the chance - lounging on chairs curled up with wine and poking about the rooms, or perched outside in summer Great Gatsby-style with a cocktail. Lookout for the sweet little nook off a stone turret stair which you can hire for two...

Prestonfield has a reputation for luxury, opulence, decadence and indulgence. I've twice before, some years ago, and on both occasions food and service were exceptionally good. The Hotel looks simple from the outside but inside is grand, sumptuous and elegant. At Christmas it looks particularly wonderful . We entered along the main hall past 2 huge Christmas trees sparkling with twinkly red lights and made our

On a very snowy Sunday afternoon just before Christmas I went for Champagne Afternoon Tea at Prestonfield House Hotel with six gorgeous girlfriends. What an afternoon it was! Oooh super-fabulous doesn't really cover it. Arriving in full snow-gear Prestonfield was very busy so we were in Rhubarb (the restaurant) rather than the Tapestry Room but it was wonderful there too. Cheers! When the cakes and sandwiches arrived there was much excitement. Mmmmn My heart was racing at the prospect. Look at the beauty of these cakes. I bet your mouth is watering. They were scrumptious, fruity and squashy and lovely and oh SO good. The close-up. Oh it was SO good! Just in case you want a little more. More eye candy The ladies toilets also require some attention. You see at Prestonfield the ladies toilets are exactly as ladies toilets should be. That is to say, padded and pink and floral with the essential chaise longue.

The Rhubarb Restaurant is absolutely lovely. The ambiance was perfect for a cold and snowy January. You definitely have to visit Prestonfield to truly appreciate how magical it feels when you are there. 

We came for afternoon tea and being so hungry didn't think the beautiful selection which arrived would be enough for the two of us. About half way through, we realised there was definitely more than enough. There were small sandwiches, small bites and then amazing little desserts- small macaroons, small cheesecakes, fruit and plain scones with clotted cream and jam - the list goes on! The staff were so accommodating and friendly and frequently topped up our tea and coffees. 

The only reason I haven't given 5 stars to Rhubarb is because I would have liked more savoury and less sweet options for the afternoon tea -  but this is a personal choice, other people may prefer more sweet options!

My partner and I had a spectacular dinner at Rhubarb. We're both gluten free, and we were told that we could have ANYTHING on the menu! They also brought us this delicious, warm, gluten-free focaccia and a plate of entirely gluten-free petits fours.

The Rhubarb at the Prestonfield hotel is absolutely delicious! The salmon, trout mousse, haggis balls, tea and fish and chips were all unbelievably amazing! The ambience is fantastic and the hotel it's in is fantastic as well! I highly recommend it 👌 👍 As a follow up, breakfast was included with our room and was also delicious! Wow!

Lovely experience and service. Shout out to sommelier Lukas for his impeccable patience and expert recommendations. Also, for those ornithologists, quite the sightings on the vast well manicured grounds.

One of the best experience in Edinburgh. Not only the food was delicious but the service was brilliant and adorable. We even had a complementary tour of the hotel with the concierge walking us through history of the place and historic pieces, decor and suites. It was nothing but a luxury adventure. Thank you for making my partner’s birthday so special and for the unforgettable memories!

We had a lovely experience at the Rhubarb restaurant on the Prestonfield property. The setting and restaurant space are lovely. The staff are helpful and friendly. We enjoyed the tasting menu for lunch and found it was some of the best food we’d had in Scotland during our entire trip. We were seated by a window and got to enjoy watching the resident peacock strut about as well. We’d love to return!

Oh what a joy the afternoon tea here was. Very pricey, but worth every penny. Staff absolutely brilliant and the food was too good for this earth. One hell of a whisky selection too with some rare additions that are really hard to find.

There are a lot of great things about this restaurant and I'm not sure where to start. This is probably one of my best dining experiences in the UK. Not only the food is great but also the architecture, vibe and service of this restaurant are just outstanding. Each room has a very unique and gorgeous decor. It was good that we decided to have a glass of wine on the first floor before going to the dining room. It was right after the Easter bank holiday, so I was told by a waiter that it was a lot more relaxed on that day. We then went to a dining room and got a seat by a window. We could see beautiful nature with a lovely ox. All waiters were kind and welcoming. We had a 3 course set for £65 and we thought it literally is a bargain for having such a great experience in the peculiar place and indeed a delicious meal. We will definitely come back here soon, hopefully we would love to stay in the hotel too! ❤️

Great old manor. We were there yesterday, December, so it was also beautifullly decorated. We had a wonderful long lunch alone in a room. Don’t go if you like minimalistic decor, otherwise it is very enjoyable. Food is good and people are extremely nice.

This is definitely the most beautiful restaurant we’ve visited in Scotland. We first came for tea then decided to come back for dinner. So I recommend both their tea service and their dinner. Service was also exceptional, our first bottle of wine was corked, so we opened another one, which turned out also to be corked. The staff was very gracious and opened yet another for us. Food was good. I ordered the guinea fowl which was a bit on the salty side. Desserts were exceptional, I love that they incorporate produce from their property wherever possible. The rhubarb at Rhubarb is indeed amazing.
