Opened in 2007, Swanston Farm’s public 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 (with the exception of Christmas Day), our Brasserie offers something for everyone – from a hearty breakfast to a pre-stroll lunch, a romantic dinner or a celebratory outing for a large group.  Golfers are also welcome to make use of Swanston Brasserie (no spikes allowed).

All of our dishes are freshly prepared and where possible, we use ingredients sourced from local producers and seasonally from our 700 acre farm, including our own lamb and eggs.

We have a fully-stocked bar, including local draft and craft bottled beers as well as a range of coffee options and delicious speciality teas, a variety of soft drinks and non-alcoholic beers.  Set on the first floor with disabled access and a lift, everyone is welcome. There is plenty of free parking and easy access, which means less stress and no limits on the time you want to spend with us.

We warmly welcome families, children and buggies.  Buggies can be bought up to the Brasserie in the lift and our staff will seat you at the best table available at the time that gives you, your buggies and surrounding customers plenty of room.  Please note that at peak times our staff may request that your buggies are parked away from your table to avoid congestion or trip hazards.  We have a number of high-chairs available which can be pre-booked (at no charge) for your table as well as our Swanston Brasserie ‘Lending Library’ with a selection of books for children to borrow whilst you’re visiting the Brasserie – these can be found next to the leather sofas.  The children’s menu also has an activity sheet on the back and our staff will pop some Crayola Twistables on your table to help keep your little ones entertained.  Most of the staff at the Brasserie have children of their own, so please do ask if you need help with anything during your visit – most of the staff have raised their own children here!

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 here is relaxed, flexible and your event will benefit from our accumulative decades of experience in catering and events.  Take a look at our Events & Room Hire section then download our booking form.

You’ll find Swanston Brasserie offers a great space to relax, dine and socialise.

“On the 22nd September, 2018, the Swanston Brasserie hosted a truly wonderful wedding reception for my daughter and her husband. Heartfelt thanks, great respect and praise belong with the Manager, Wylie, and his team. Every step of the way, time and care were taken to ensure the reception would be a very true to the couple occasion. And it was, and then some. The planning and preparation were exemplary and led us to a reception which was perfect in the ways we had hoped for, as well as in ways we had not even dreamed of.  The joyful, relaxed atmosphere of the wedding ceremony continued beautifully into the Brasserie. It was in our ideal setting, nestling into the Pentland Hills with breath taking views across Edinburgh. This was particularly special because a number of our guests had come from far flung places.  The amazing service we had over the course of the evening was second to none. It was friendly, warm, well-timed and unobtrusive. The meal was of excellent quality, delicious and enjoyed by all the guests.  Although I have tried to, I do not think I could ever sing the Swanston Brasserie’s praises enough. Thank you for giving Christina and Manaba, along with their families and friends, a wedding reception with such happy memories to treasure for evermore.”

“I just wanted to drop you a line to thank you and your team for the wonderful afternoon tea you organised for my mother’s 90th birthday.  You completely surpassed what we expected!  We thought there would be some scones and cake but you provided the most delicious array of sandwiches, wraps, cakes, etc – my mother and her friends were delighted.   It was one of the best afternoon teas we have ever had.  We would also like to thank the very charming waiter who was allocated to look after us – he was so helpful and lovely. Thanks again –  it is much appreciated and made an elderly lady very happy.”
