Situated in the heart of Dalkeith Country Park, is Restoration Yard, where you’ll find our award-winning restaurant, The Kitchen. Set in beautifully restored 18th century stables, The Kitchen offers morning or afternoon coffee and cakes as well as breakfast and lunch menus. Sit inside or on the terrace to enjoy stunning panoramic views of the estate and historic Orangerie.

Offering hot and cold drinks, as well as kids lunch boxes, soup, stovies, freshly made sandwiches, cakes and Giacopazzi ice-cream, it’s the perfect stop off during your visit to Dalkeith Country Park.
