Exclusive Private Dining near Edinburgh

testimonial We had the perfect day, from the moment we arrived... to us leaving. Stunning house, stunning grounds, very attentive staff, amazing food, fun event. We were made to feel ‘at home’ the whole time.

Winton Castle is a renowned private party venue near Edinburgh and has been hosting special private dinners for birthday parties, wedding anniversaries, family get-togethers and other celebrations since 2000. As an exclusive use private dining venue, it’s all yours for the duration of your dinner party.

The castle’s flexible layout and extensive gardens mean that we can cater for a wide variety of different requirements. From intimate private dining, birthday parties and anniversaries in the Cabinet Room or 500 year old Vaulted Cellar, to larger formal lunches or dinners in the Dining Room and Octagon Room for 10 to 130 people.

Informal Private Dining Specialities – Hog Roasts, BBQs and Picnics

For less formal parties, you can choose from a hog roast, barbecue or picnic in the gardens. This is a great way to enjoy Winton’s gardens and cater for larger numbers (from 20 – 200) and make your budget go further.

We often base the hog roast or BBQ on the Peacock Balcony next to the castle. This means that events can be run throughout the year and you can also eat inside in comfort when the weather’s less good.

Food and Drink of the Highest Quality

You and your guests will enjoy mouth-watering, freshly prepared dishes created by our award-winning chefs, accompanied by carefully selected wines and locally-sourced beers, malt whiskies and liqueurs.

Finish your Party with a Winton Ceilidh

Why not have one of our very popular Winton Ceilidhs to round off your evening? You can let your hair down, work off your dinner, and may even be able to persuade Sir Francis Ogilvy to lead the dancing.

Please call us with your tastes and we’ll give you some tantalising menu options.
