Wine List

World Renowned Wine List

Prestonfield is home to some of the world's most famous wines, with over 600 different varieties available.  James Thomson has a reputation as a restauranteur who understands the place of fine wine with fine food in luxurious surroundings. From small producers scattered around Europe to pioneers in South Africa’s Swartland or Pinot Noir from the southerly extreme of New Zealand’s Central Otago. We try to seek out wines that are simply too delicious to ignore.

The Whisky Room

The Whisky Room

Quirky antler furniture, deep sofas and even deeper glasses of Malt whisky are the order of the day in this clubbable retreat with its roaring log stove. Hung with a rare collection of antique equestrian portraits, our even rarer collection of Malt whiskies could keep you occupied for some time too.

If you're joining us for a stay and want to ensure we have your favourite whisky, wine or anything else then please give us a call on 0131 662 2300 and our team will see what they can do. Or email  and let us know.
