Classic Afternoon Teas near Edinburgh

You’ll be welcomed with a glass of Prosecco in front of the open fire. Tea is served in the light and sunny drawing room with sumptuous sofas, log fire, tinkling piano and fabulous views of the gardens.

We invite you to take the time to enjoy this uniquely indulgent experience: sample speciality fresh leaf teas and share our love of baking while you soak up the house’s Georgian opulence.

Classic high society teas have also become an essential theme at the best Hen Parties, a full sit down afternoon tea accompanied by Prosecco to fortify the ladies before their special evening.

As Gilmerton is an exclusive use venue, please note that bookings are for minimum parties of 12 guests.
