Abbot House is about to close so sneak in a visit and learn more about the place of Dunfermline in Scotlsnd's history - or buy some of the ale from the gift shop. This is free entry and has s cafe and garden but also gives fantastic views of Dunfermline Abbey.

On the site of a brew house still brewing excellent beer today. On our visit a live band was playing in the garden area trying to get funds for the Abbots House to pay off debts and pay staff. Well worth a visit and take home some bottles of beer

The centre doesn't look too big from the outside, but inside it's huge. The cafe on the ground floor served delicious coffee and cake. The heritage centre is free, and has volunteer guides to show you around, should you wish. We were lucky enough to be guided by David, a retired engineer, who had an encyclopaedic knowledge of the history... More

The café here in the shadow of Dunfermline Abbey is full of character and with the option to sit outside in good weather. Our lunch (for two) was delicious and very reasonably priced - less than £12 for panini, baked potato, pot of tea and soft drink. Totally recommended!

On a sunny day, the garden café is without a doubt, the best place in Dunfermline for a meal or drink in a beautiful setting. The food is good, with a large range of dishes cooked to order. prices are very reasonable.

Abbot house was very interesting to look through and my husband and I enjoyed it. Had a lovely afternoon tea afterwards. Really was not happy with the service we got in the gift shop as there was none! We had to get one of the LOVELY volunteers from the cafe to get one of the PAID staff to serve us... More
