Oasis of calm in Arbroath
Jun 2021
On a sunny afternoon in June we tried this cafe out and enjoyed a wonderful lunch of freshly prepared food. Sitting outside admiring the walled garden we decided we shall definitely be back!

New Cafe
Jun 2021
A cafe is now open Thursday to Sunday adjacent to The Fernery, friendly staff, good menu choices, prices may be on the high side, but well worth a try.

Great wee cafe and gardens
Jun 2021
The house is being renovated so we could only walk round the gardens, but we enjoyed that. The small fernery is fairly unusual too. The new cafe has outdoor and indoor seating, and uses local produce. The soup was delicious!

What a Surprise!
Aug 2019
We have lived not too far from Arbroath for over 30 years but never visited Hospitalfield House. Some months ago, BBC4 produced a programme about a valuable work of art that had turned up here. Included in the programme was a lot of background information about the history of Hospitalfield. The house looked so attractive with many works of art, that we decided we should visit. Some time later, our daughter-in-law, who hails from Arbroath, decided to host her 40th birthday celebrations here. What a lovely venue!

The old house is slowly being renovated and I believe it is owned and run by a charitable trust. The gardens were superb and our evening meal was absolutely delicious, with many of the vegetables sourced from the organic garden. The beetroot ketchup "was to die for." Indeed, it proved so popular, even among the children, that our group ate the lot. The meal was held in the greenhouse, a pleasant and relaxing place to be on a summer's evening.

We were guided round the house and were amazed by the many works of art that had been collected and displayed. Allegedly, it was Scotland's first school of Fine Art and many art students have trained here. It is also said to be one of Scotland's finest old houses. Most tourists and many people in the Tayside region, are unaware of it's history and also it's captivating charm. It is well worth a visit. It should be on the radar of any tourists visiting this area as well as worth consideration for a romantic, Victorian venue for a wedding.

A brilliant event
Aug 2018 • Friends
We went to an event here recently. It's a gorgeous place but more importantly the service by the staff, led by Scott and Rio was just exceptional. Felt like a home from home (quite a home!)

A lovely day
Jun 2018 • Solo
I thoroughly enjoyed my trip to Hospitalfield Arts. I did one of the guided walks (quite short), had lunch and then did the guided tour of the house.

The venue is largely staffed by volunteers who clearly enjoy what they are doing.

I had never heard of the venue but would come again as it was very interesting. The guide who took us round the house was very knowledgeable and entertaining.
