Class of 2023! University Graduation celebration in Edinburgh

After a final year of hard work, it will soon be time for the graduation ceremonies and celebrations to begin at Universities across Edinburgh. For most young achievers, it will be a once in a lifetime occasion with family and friends. So why not make it an even more memorable experience with a special dinner?

This is exactly what awaits graduates at Prestonfield, as we toast the successes of the class of 2023. It doesn’t get much better than an award-winning three-course meal at our Rhubarb Restaurant.

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.

Or turn your party into a special Edinburgh break

With a wonderful prime city location just two miles from McEwan Hall, where most Edinburgh University graduation ceremonies take place, less than 20 minutes to Usher Hall, the venue for Queen Margaret University ceremonies and just a 30 minute drive from the Heriot-Watt Edinburgh campus, Prestonfield is perfectly situated for a short break. Other locations to make memories nearby include Arthur’s Seat and highlights such as Edinburgh Castle and the Scottish National Gallery.

Whether you stay for one night or several, we have some of the best luxury accommodation in Edinburgh. Every single one of our luxury rooms and suites is an indulgent delight, with character and features galore. An unmissable Edinburgh experience to make your graduation stay truly unforgettable.
