Gala Dinners

A feast of joy and laughter

Consummate Scottish Dining

We want you to experience the very best hospitality at your gala dinner, whether you’re entertaining clients, rewarding colleagues or celebrating success.

Gilmerton House works with passionate, food obsessed, consummate Scottish caterers. Our catering team are ‘famous for food’ and pioneers of precision hospitality. They also hold a Royal Warrant.

For smaller parties, our local, East Lothian chef has a career which spans 5 continents, Michelin Star restaurants and super yachts, and serves up delectable dinners.

"Our team were looking for somewhere peaceful with beautiful scenery, and shut off from everyday life. Not your typical corporate establishment. [The team were] very accommodating. The butler was exceptionally helpful. Not your typical hotel – its history and tradition make it a unique venue."

Sheila Lyburn, Craneware

Our gala dinners are popular with businesses that want to reward their staff, spend time with clients and bring people together for a good cause.

Past clients have included Oboglobal, Highline, the National Trust and Craneware.

We’ve also been lucky enough to welcome David and Victoria Beckham for a Haig Club lunch where Tom Kitchin was the crafting the food.

And, if you want less formal fare, we can also lay on delicious buffets, light lunches, barbecues, picnics and hog roasts.

We can help put together a social event that shines. To give your guests a truly memorable evening we can organise entertainment:

  • a wine, whisky or gin tasting always goes down well;
  • a live band or DJ is always a hit; and
  • games are guaranteed ice breakers.

Gilmerton House is the perfect gala dinner venue for parties of 20 up to 60. Our wood panelled Music Room and dining room have seen many memorable dinner parties.
