With many families (including especially now our many previous Balbirnie brides and grooms!) wishing to return to Balbirnie over the years, we would be simply delighted to assist with your special event. We cannot even begin to convey how special it has been over so many years to see these celebratory occasions taking place in the house on a daily basis. So very special. And long may we continue.

And a little reminder of those special particularly celebratory years:-

25 years – Silver, 30 years – Pearl, 40 years – Ruby, 50 years – Golden, 60 years – Diamond


In an overall planning context, as always, we say that we start with a blank canvas. We hope that our suggestions are helpful, and if you, as our client, have any special requests or suggestions, then please do let us know. We will always be absolutely delighted to consider incorporating any and all special requests which we consider we can physically deliver, and we certainly do not mind being put to the test!

Over the years we have seen some quite incredible parties here at Balbirnie, and here’s to those wonderful celebrations ahead!




We are justifiably proud of the enviable reputation we have for dining at Balbirnie. We are always pleased to discuss individual ideas and develop special menus for your own celebration.

The Pop-Up Bistro @ Balbirnie House


In addition to offering 30 – 40 guest private booking capability in our Balbirnie Bistro, we are now able to convert a section of Balbirnie’s existing Business Centre, into a day or evening Private Dining Room, within which we can offer a version of our lovely Bistro menu. For up to 30 guests.


Arrival drinks are served from the Bistro Pop-Up Lobby area, providing you and your guests with time to mingle before dinner. The dining room itself is candlelit in the evening, and equipped with low level contemporary mood lighting, dark copper blinds, background sound dock (bring your own tunes if you so wish), and for clients who are Ipad or laptop equipped, we offer the scope to use the room’s audio visual surround system, to project for example, some special family memories …

We also 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!!!


The Courtyard @ Balbirnie House – a totally unique dining facility, for private and corporate special events.

The Courtyard design was inspired in 2016, by a visit to Denmark, specifically Copenhagen’s StreetFood market. This Scandinavian-inspired area was created for Balbirnie, in conjunction with Carlsberg, and provides you and your guests with a truly unique outdoor dining experience!


Brand new for 2017, The Courtyard setup allows 4 tables each for up to 8 guests, with gigantic parasol, overhead heaters, sheepskin rugs, and Carlsberg blankets as required. Whilst equipped with overhead heaters, guests are advised to arrive dressed for outdoor dining. On the coldest winter days, please bring, hats, gloves, and coats.


The Courtyard is equipped with overhead fairy lights, incredibly romantic at night. The area also has a sound dock, with low level in-house playlist.
