“Good food, but don't expect too much about cheesemaking”

Reviewed April 21, 2016

Firstly, I was expecting the opposite of what we got when we visited this place. I assumed it would be a cheese-making dairy with a cafe added on. However, it is the opposite.

There is a cafe and deli. The cafe is very popular and for good reason. The food on offer is a mix of standard dishes with some unusual items. I went for the cheese board - well, what else would you have? It was great, although I have yet to have cheese or pate with anything like enough biscuits/toast to go with it!

The cheese-making part would be a let down if you went just for that. It is a video. You can watch this next to a large window looking into the factory...but the lights were off and nobody was home when we visited. Still, the cheese was great!!

My husband and I cycled along today. Last time I visited was not long after it opened and today we were really impressed by the menu, the food and all the beautiful baking. We had delicious soup, shared a lovely tasty toastie and made room for the best Victoria sponge ever- justifying it by cycling home! I pass the farm every day going to work and will visit much more often. There is outside space with tables facing the sea and its licensed and would be a lovely spot when it's weather to sit outside, sip prosecco (wines very well priced!) and have a delicious salad. Lovely wee gift shop too- great alternative in the area to the standard fish n chips!!

Visited the cafe for morning coffee, a lovely light-filled building with fabulous views. Three of us had the cheese scones that were just out the oven and they were the best we have ever had! My 2 daughters had the Victoria sponge which was also delicious. Lovely fresh home baked food; would definitely recommend a visit. A great selection of cheeses to purchase too.

4 of us dropped by for apres lunch and found plenty to please and choose from, although the range for lunch menu seemed small and the prices a little high, would be good value if the portions were large... but we couldn't tell. Tea, coffee, chocolate and St Andrews brewery beer were served timely and a couple of cakes were shared and were all delicious.
Views of Fife coast is superb, from Crail round to Pittenweem, toilets are immaculate and well worth a visit.
They have a viewing gallery where you can watch the cheese making process but there was none on in winter weekend. They have a range of cheeses and other products for sale but could do more to provide a cheeseboard selection to sit in. As one of our party said, it would be great to sit outside on a summer's day with biscuits and cheeses and a wee glass of wine or port. We'll need to give it a try.
