Prestonfield House: A truly exceptional place to celebrate your graduation with loved ones

A unique occasion demands a venue to match; and you could not wish for a more elegant and iconic setting in the city than Prestonfield. Indeed, your graduation pictures are sure to look stunning! A place for big celebrations since 1687, the hotel is quite simply the best place to celebrate in Edinburgh.

Not that our unmistakable style and atmosphere are the only reasons to book, because the Rhubarb Restaurant is equally renowned for its daring and delicious food. Our award-winning menus use the very best of Scottish produce, along with a truly outstanding international wine list, to offer a dining experience fit for the most special of occasions.

As for the curious name of our restaurant, this derives from the fact that Prestonfield Estate was the first location in Scotland where rhubarb was commercially grown. To this day, we still love this classic flavour and use it regularly in signature dishes and desserts.

Of course, you could also join us for Afternoon Tea, another true delight with the strutting peacocks, stunning rose gardens and Arthur’s Seat backdrop.
