We serve breakfast, light lunches and cakes and our aim is to provide simple wholesome food with our baking and locally sourced food. We bake fresh everyday and have a range of bread, bagels, croissants, cakes and lots more available to enjoy in the tearoom or takeaway.

“Best homemade bread ever!”
Reviewed October 20, 2013

A delightful tea room where the food is made with care with top quality ingredients. Excellent coffee is on offer alongside homemade breads and oatcakes which are delicious. Good value for such top quality produce. A real gem in the village and well worth a visit.

“Delicious Soup of the Day”
Reviewed October 15, 2013

I went on a tour with Afternoon Tea Tours and we stopped here for lunch. It is the oldest working water mill in Scotland dating back to the 1590's. I loved the old world feel and just the coziness of the place. I had the soup and bread and enjoyed it very much. I would have loved the recipe. This gets a thumbs up!

“A wonderful opportunity!”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

This place is everything - a working museum, a shop, a restaurant and tea room all in one! The staff are very attentive, the quality of the food and coffee is second to none!

Fresh bread, rolls, chutneys & jams, oats and muesli freshly milled in the working museum of a proper working watermill! This is in addition to the selection of cakes, fresh soups, sandwiches any teas/coffees on sale. (I especially love the coffee selections)

The staff are so eager to please. I always stop in when visiting Blair Atholl, and always take supplies back home!
