Group Dining In The Bistro and Private Bistro Dining

Perfect for parties, The Bistro welcomes groups and private bookings – for tables of 13 and over we would request a group menu which can be priced individually or a set price if easier for everyone. Do get in touch and we can forward the menus relevant for your booking.

For those looking for a private room with our Bistro menu on offer, we have also recently created our super new “Balbirnie Bistro Deluxe” Pop Up Deluxe private room. Located on the same floor as The Bistro, The  Pop Up offers private dining with our Bistro menu for up to 30 (up to 16 on 1 table, 30 over 3 tables).  Group menus applicable depending on numbers.

To make a reservation, telephone 01592 610066.

Note re. Disabled Access to Bistro: Please note that The Bistro is located on the lower ground floor of Balbirnie and access is available only via a staircase. We are very sorry but due to the inherited architectural issues of Balbirnie being a grade A listed building, we have unfortunately been unable to install a lift into this area of the old building. Our Orangery restaurant, however, is located on the ground floor and provides full disabled access for guests to enjoy drinks in the public drawing room areas beforehand, access to the restaurant and to our disabled access restroom.

In The Balbirnie Bistro

We offer various vegetarian options.

Children of all ages are welcome, and in this area, we are delighted to offer a children’s menu with very traditional child favourites, in The Bistro we do have high chairs and baby food heating facilities, as well as changing facilities. Within the hotel, we also have a number of Private Dining rooms available for hire.
