We have visited Ardross several times during our stays in the East Neuk. After a previous visit in the Autumn we really looked forward to a steak pie from Ardross. That and all the other delicious food on offer. This time in March we came prepared with freezer bags to take food back to our home in Oban on the... More

Stock is well laid out with a huge range of sauces and oils. many of these are products that are hard to find in a supermarket. A huge range of frozen organic meats, pork,beef,lamb and chicken,...

I visited this farm shop on the recommendation of an acquaintance. I found the range of items to be quite good, but the staff were quite offhand, and there seemed to be a rush to get you in and out with minimum customer service.

We were tempted in by their sign for home made steak pie and were not disappointed. With 3 hungry boys we've tried many steak pies but the consensus is that Ardross is by far the best. The food is of superior quality, reasonably priced and beautifully presented. We'll definitely be back to fill the freezer. Thanks for a lovely dinner!

The usual type of farm shop, over-priced goods, but attractively laid out, only spoilt by rude, impersonal service, a 'please' and 'thank you' would not go amiss.

I stock up on Ardross beef every time I am in the area because it tastes so much better than anything I can buy at home. The other meats they sell are equally tasty and come from other producers in the area. The vegetables taste like vegetables should taste and are for sale at the right time of year (no... More

If you like locally grown produce and a bit of variety and quality that's different from supermarkets, it's worth a trip to farm shops like this. You may pay a little bit extra, but there's a distinct feel good factor when buying fresh produce. And there's no doubt it tastes better. This farm shop has friendly and helpful staff, and... More

We stopped here while walking on the Coastal Trail. It was wonderful! We wanted to go back to pick up some things for dinner but never made it. It closes at 5:00 and with all our sightseeing, we were unable to make it back on time. Wish we could have!

Thank you very much for reviewing our shop, we are thrilled to hear you enjoyed your visit. We shut at 5.30pm so perhaps you could have made it back after all. We often keep products in a fridge or freezer for people who are walking and you can collect them later, even if it is after opening hours. Next time... More

Do you remember when seasonal fruit was sold in pop-up stalls at the side of the road? Too many of these became 'farm shops' that usually disappoint, selling expensive eat-in snacks and stocked with exclusive brand treats and tourist tat. There may be a poor selection of fresh produce, a distant reminder of bygone days. So imagine my delight when... More

We had the most amazing beef burgers from here. Staff were very friendly, it was a very clean, well layed out shop. Easy to move around and find things. Reasonable prices for the quality and types of food available. Cant wait to go back and stock up!
