Prestonfield introduced Scotland to Rhubarb as an ingredient in the 18th century, now, three centuries on, the story continues…Rhubarb takes its name and renowned colourful look from this iconic British culinary classic.
Rhubarb has all of the magic, gourmet delights, drama and romance you would expect from the creator of the Witchery by the Castle. Dramatic, this stylish and opulent occupies grand Regency rooms at the heart of Prestonfield House. Dine in a gourmet retreat with a reputation as the capital's most memorable dining experience.
Rhubarb’s menu showcases the best of Scottish ingredients, from briny-fresh shellfish, lamb, Angus beef and wild game from our hills to crafted artisan cheeses. Helpful sommeliers will introduce you to a cellar packed with a world of wonderful wines and our bartenders’ cocktails will hit the spot.
Rhubarb offers Edinburgh’s finest destination dining each day. Expect the same exceptional experience at afternoon tea as you would with dinner a la carte – our in-house pastry chefs work equally hard creating both.
Our base at Prestonfield House means you get all the glitz and glamour of Edinburgh’s highest-rated hotel too!

Summer sees the terrace and gardens sought-out and winter the comforts of log fires and candlelight.
