The Bakery and Tea Room

We bake a wide variety of breads, cakes, bagels and rolls in our artisan bakery. All the baking is fresh everyday using our own stone ground flour and oatmeal. We also produce a selection of delicious cakes and scones (including our famous carrot cake). We serve breakfast and light lunches as well and our produce is available as a takeaway. You can place your baking order in advance as well so you won't be disappointed!

The Tea Room is situated on the original kiln drying floor of the mill and really is like taking a step back in time! But on a sunny day, we recommend relaxing in our tea garden. The watermill is open for viewing (and free!) and you can see how oats and wheat are milled in the traditional way. There is a small shop by the tearoom where you can purchase our flour, oatmeal, tiffin, oatcakes and much more.

Bread Making Courses

Our Basic Bread Making Courses are the perfect opportunity to discover more about traditional bread making to create a wonderful variety of breads using different types of flour. The courses are run by Rami who will share his knowledge gained from milling and baking over the last 14 years.

We run a programme of beginner, intermediate and sourdough bread making courses throughout the year. For more information, visit

  • Only three tables inside but well set up for takeaway soup, rolls or cakes. Ordering very slow but food delicious  more »
  • Called by before visit to Blair Castle. Steady stream of customers, with great selection freshly baked (and warm) bread. Excellent coffee. Large tent in car park as only a few tables inside...  more »
  • The salmon with salad was amazing. The best salad Ive had in months. The lentil soup was so good my partner who doesn't eat veggies finished his whole bowl- carrots and all. There were tons of bees outside so ypu might want to skip the outdoor dining to enjoy the indoor atmosphere.
  • This is a wonderful and unique little cafe. The watermill grinds its own oats and flour using a water wheel and then sells the products in the cafe. You can tour the mill for free and there are often guided tours during the day. They aren't always running the mill as it depends on having enough water. The cafe is excellent and serves mainly locally produced food which is great. Most meals come with bread made from the mills flour.
