Sometimes you want the buzz of a restaurant but sometimes only the privacy and exclusivity of a private dining room will do. At Rhubarb you can have either. Alongside the most glamorous restaurant in the city, you can find a unique collection of private dining rooms, perfect for events of any size or style.
Choose a room to suit your mood; the elegant Garden Room with its own private terrace, the colourful Stuart Room or historic Italian Room.
From the first kilted welcome at the door, your event will impress. Expect capital canapes, drinks in a dedicated reception room (even in the gardens in summer), slick service and fantastic food to delight and impress your guests. Most rooms can work in a variety of table formats to suit your event and our events team will help with every detail; from sumptuous flowers and linens to the last place card and personal menu. Our bar team will find the perfect Champagnes, wines, and drinks to suit your tastes, your menu and budget.
And if you don’t want your private dining experience to end? Just book one of Prestonfield’s luxurious rooms and at least you get to stay for breakfast.
If you are entertaining just one other guest there is the bijou Salon Privée, the size of an opera box. Entertaining on a grand scale? Rhubarb can be available on an exclusive use basis for up to 50 or 100 guests.
Our private dining rooms aren’t just for lunch or dinner. We’ve menus for business breakfasts that need to pack a punch or celebratory afternoon teas. Rhubarb’s chefs have created a selection of special private dining menus enabling parties of up to 24 guests to dine from choice menus or create your own special menu to delight your guests with.
