I have carefully chosen suppliers and ingredients highlighting Scottish producers from the milk dude Bryce@Mossgiel, to the egg lady Anne@Corrie Mains Farm, to the flour guy Angus@Mungowells and not to forget the mad professor of coffee Alistair@Home Ground Coffee. My aim is to use as much organic produce as possible. As for plastics, my disposables come from Vegware and is completely 100% compostable. So help me save the oceans!

Our friendly staff will be happy to serve you in the sunny conservatory or outside on the terrace on the banks of the Powmillon Burn as it winds its way from Strathaven Park through the village to join the River Avon just behind the Castle and Strathaven Arts and Heritage Centre.
