Your Perfect Venue

Balbirnie has seven quite different private dining areas which can accommodate anything from small private dining parties to larger events for up to 216.

The Orangery Chef’s Table Room

For an experience to remember, this is a totally unique private tasting room for 4-6 covers only, located directly looking into our main kitchen. Diners will be able to watch (and listen if they wish!) the kitchen brigade via a 3 metre stretch of one-way glass.

The Garden Room

Overlooking the gardens, this lovely room seats up to 16 for lunch or dinner on 1 table, or up to 20 on 2 rectangular tables)– ideal for smaller occasions which require a private room.

The West Room

Again overlooking the garden lawns, The West Room seats up to 24 on one table or up to 50 on 5 round tables.

The Ballroom

The Ballroom was built as our purpose-built largest event room in 1999. It has been designed in keeping with the old house and with Georgian arched windows around the room, the room is flooded with natural daylight. This area can seat up to 216 for lunch or dinner and up to 168 guests if space for a dancefloor/band is also required. Also with its own private and secluded gardens, perfect for summer entertaining.

The Orangery

This is our main restaurant which can also be reserved for private events, accommodating up to 80 for private and corporate gatherings.  The Orangery is a fabulous room to host an event, with floor to ceiling lunette windows, a glass roof ceiling and is sumptuously decorated in shades of silver, copper and chocolate.

The Bistro

The Bistro is our alternative restaurant at Balbirnie, offering a more casual dining experience with a relaxed and informal ambience in an authentic Bistro style setting. The Bistro can seat a maximum of 46 guests.

The Bistro Private ‘Pop Up’ Deluxe Room

Brand new and by very popular demand we are now very proud to introduce Balbirnie’s Pop-Up Bistro Deluxe!

We are now able to convert a section of Balbirnie’s Business Centre into an evening Private Dining Room within which we can offer our restricted Bistro menu, for up to 30 guests. The dining room is candlelit and equipped with low level contemporary mood lighting, dark copper blinds, background sound dock (bring your own tunes if you so wish), with scope to use the room’s audio visual surround system, to project for example, some special family memories … or in business terms, some corporate highlights.

There is currently no room hire charge for the Pop-Up.

We highlight that the Bistro Deluxe chairs are wonderfully comfortable. Magnificent chrome framed Boss design with Andrew Muirhead soft Scottish chocolate leather. The room itself offers scope for linen-clothed rectangular tables, and as we are deluxe – crisp linen napkins of course!
