Locally sourced seasonal food, served in a relaxed atmosphere with stunning views of the Pentland Hills & Edinburgh.

Opened in 2007, Swanston Farm’s Brasserie beholds fantastic views from its vantage point, overlooking Edinburgh, the Pentland Hills, Firth of Forth and towards the distant East Lothian beaches. Open all day, every day from 9am, our Brasserie offers something for everyone – from a hearty breakfast to a pre-stroll lunch, a delicious afternoon tea to a romantic dinner or even a celebratory outing for a large group. All of our dishes are freshly prepared and where possible, we use ingredients sourced from local producers, seasonally, from our 700 acre farm, including our own beef, lamb and eggs.

We have a fully-stocked bar, including local craft beers as well as a selection of coffees and speciality teas. For the designated drivers we also have a variety of soft drinks and a range of non-alcoholic beers.

Set on the first floor with disabled access and a lift, everyone is welcome. Free parking means easy access, less stress and no limits on the time you want to spend with us. You’ll find Swanston Brasserie offers a great space to relax, dine and socialise – for adults and children alike.

Swanston Brasserie is also able to host your own private event, from a children’s party in our ground floor function room, to a Christening or a wedding upstairs in our main Brasserie area, a drinks reception on our terrace overlooking the fairway and the Pentland Hills or your office Christmas party. The space available at Swanston Brasserie is relaxed, flexible and your event will benefit from our accumulative decades of experience in catering and events.

Cream Teas are also available at Swanston Brasserie 7 days a week.  At £9.50 per person, it includes a selection of finger sandwiches and wraps, mini quiches, mini tray bakes, mini cakes and mini scones, along with unlimited tea and filter coffee.  For a bit of sparkle, you can add some Fizz from our fantastic wine list.  Presented on crisp white linen, our Cream Teas are the perfect birthday treat, family outing, girly get-together, or just because!  Cream Teas need to be pre-booked at least 24 hours in advance and are available between 3pm and 5pm.  Special Occasion Cream Teas can, however, be booked outwith these times, again, at least 24 hours in advance.


Swanston Brasserie is open from 0900 until late every day. Seasonal variances may apply.

“My husband and I dine at Swanston Brasserie every month and never tire of the stunning views, fantastic menu and wonderful staff. Over the years we have got to know the staff very well and love that we feel so at home there.

We spent last Hogmanay at the Brasserie too, with a large group of friends and enjoyed the brilliant live music and Hogmanay menu. We can’t recommend it highly enough.”
