Overall, we had a great time! Lots of fun memories. The food was good. Yummy autumnal soup, haggis (thank goodness for the gravy!) and lemon dessert. But you really go for the entertainment. I guess I thought it was going to be a little more...serious. Like more formal. But don't get me wrong, cheesy is fun. The host was very... More

The show was fine. The venue was hot and crowded with no room to move for customer or waiters. The beef was so over done it could not be cut with a knife let alone chewed. Sent first piece back got an even worse one. No one in our group of 20 got a good meal. The fish dish was... More

Okay, the food is good, not excellent, but the meat was tender and people that have tried other haggis said this was particularly good haggis. The show was a lot of fun, the music was a nice mix and the dancers were good. This is a really fun night, just enjoy! Yes, the chairs are not the greatest, but it... More

The Venue: Prestonfield House is a haven in the centre of Edinburgh. Very "country house" in the middle of town, hidden away at the end of a residential area and at the foot of the fabulous Arthur's Seat. Peacocks and parklands set off the wonderful buildings which form Prestonfield House (do go early and have dinner or even just a... More

We had a wonderful time! We were seated at a table with no one able to converse as we were the only two English speakers. We muddled through and ended up having fun. The music and singing were great. The dancing was fun to watch. For a large venue serving a lot of people at once I feel they did... More

Following a two year break, my friend and I made a return to the historic and beautiful Prestonfield House and the Stables for the world famous taste of Scotland show. Prestonfield is set in beautiful country estate on the outskirts of Edinburgh in the shadow Arthurs seat and makes the perfect setting for an evening celebrating the best of Scotland's... More

Was asked along to this show and really wasn't sure what to expect.....it was brilliant I had a fabulous night. The setting is stunning in a marque, beautiful, clean and warm! The production of the show was 2nd to none, Scottish music played with bagpipes, a drummer, an accordion player, a violin.. The dancers doing a variety of Scottish dancing... More

This was an optional extra on our 22 day bus tour. I read the reviews good and bad and thought the good outweighed the bad. People PLEASE listen to the bad reviews and believe them. This place is terrible. Terrible good, terrible service and terrible show. The unlimited alcohol clearly helps but nothing can make me recommend this show. My... More

Show was ok. Good singers and pretty dancers. Food was not good. Terrible service esp one waiter. Pretty rude. Half of our table had their dessert late and I spoke to the waiter requesting for assistance, he started saying he had another to serve. All I wanted him to do was to remind our wait staff but boy was this... More

Uncomfortable chairs, poor quality food and entertainment, and really expensive for what it is. Overall a very disappointing evening in what seems a beautiful setting!
