Tearoom & Gardens

Our Tearoom near Dumfries is a favourite place for a chat with friends over morning coffee, a light lunch or Afternoon Tea. We provide table service, so no queuing with trays.

We’re busy in the kitchen from early morning every day to produce our home-cooked food. The first things into the oven are the scones. And, there are always a couple of homemade soups being prepared for lunch.

It’s important for us to support local producers. You’ll find many of the region’s finest ingredients on our menu, as well as fruit and salad from our own gardens.

With a good understanding of vegan, gluten-free and lactose-free diets (from personal experience) our team will be happy to help you choose something suitable from our main menu or from the special dietary menu.

If you like being outdoors, then you might enjoy our patio garden which overlooks Sweetheart Abbey. It’s a popular spot with walkers, cyclists and four-legged friends.

We also have dog-friendly tables indoors, with views of Sweetheart Abbey and Criffel.
