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

Free to enter and to poke about, the house is full of entrancing nooks and crannies and a spooky tale to make your spine tingle and your eyes watchful.

Went to Abbot House for a quick lunch with a friend. I ordered their Belter roll with sausage.fried egg and black pudding for £4.50 -was excellent.Quality products used and menu looked good (not limiting !) . Always liked their paradise cake tray bakes ,so will be back to try them again soon -hopefully still exist. Great spot for a lunch.

Having wandered around the park and abbey area we went for lunch at Abbot House. The menu was very limited but I chose one of the daily specials, fish and chips, along... More

Pleasantly surprised with the building, very quaint and made you feel you had stepped back in time. The upper floors were full of information and the artwork giving history of Dunfermline was excellent. The coffee shop on ground floor was excellent and as the weather was superb the gardens were just so relaxing and overlooked the abbey.
