Balbirnie Bistro


Our Bistro is currently only available for private dining between 20 and 45 guests.


Created from the old kitchens of the house, The Bistro offers casual dining, delicious and authentic Bistro cooking. It is located on Balbirnie’s lower floor, due to the architecture and layout of the Grade A Listed building, access to The Balbirnie Bistro and The Balbirnie Business Centre involves navigating a minimum of 6 steps, without ramp access. (From site investigations, ramp access cannot be established due to the physical angle of the stairs within the architecture itself.

Group Dining In The Bistro and Private Bistro Dining

Perfect for parties, The Bistro welcomes groups and private bookings – for tables of 20 to 45 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.
