Afternoon Tea

Once a rather stuffy affair, afternoon teas have, quite rightly, reclaimed their place in our nation’s culinary heart.

The Maryculter House afternoon tea is no exception – a sumptuous celebration of seasonal savoury and sweet treats, it’s the ultimate indulgent experience. Add a glass or two of bubbles, and what better way is there to spend an afternoon?

The Maryculter Sunday Roast

Sundays are our favourite days at Maryculter House. The aroma of rich, home-made gravy and fluffy Yorkshire puddings, the joyful clinking of glasses, the gentle hubbub of conversation and laughter – it’s what Sundays were made for.

We source all of our meat and vegetables locally when they are in season. Our beef is worthy of a mention all of its own.

It is served every Sunday from 12:30pm to 3:00pm

Private Dining

Special get-togethers call for special surroundings. Fortunately, we have those in abundance. Our private dining rooms offer the perfect space to enjoy that much-anticipated family reunion, celebration or business dining. Our Godfrey dinner room can host up to 12 guests and our Priory dining room up to 40.

Both rooms are located in the original part of the building, with open fires and original stone walls, providing a touch of historical Scottish grandeur for your special event.
