James Thomson's grand hotel has a restaurant to match the sprawling decadence of this restored country house.

The Times.


Decadent, stylish and very, very, glamorous, the restaurant occupies a pair of spectacular oval rooms at the heart of Prestonfield. Alongside are a collection of chic bars and salons for cocktails, drinks or afternoon tea and some even more sumptuous drawingrooms in which to enjoy coffee and liqueurs by our log fires.

Exceptional Scottish produce, much sourced from small artisan suppliers, is handled with terrific skill and flair creating a gourmet destination with a reputation among the capital's most memorable dining experiences. Rhubarb has a range of menus including a la carte and a very special dining offer - 3 courses at either lunch or dinner for just £33. There is also a great two-course lunch menu at just £20.

To accompany such accomplished cooking Prestonfield has an award-winning cellar and temptation lurks in the wine list of over 800 bins. From famous name wines for very special occasions, to a hand-picked selection of 14 wines available by the glass, you'll find your ideal dining companion within Rhubarb's acclaimed list.

The pick of the bunch is Rhubarb.
