We walk Bob at Delgatie Woods fairly often - it is a wonderful dog walking place. We have only ever toured the castle once and we have gone into the tearoom a few times.
Today, I decided to take the boys for lunch before taking Bob into the woods.
It is a lovely, little tearoom and usually pretty quiet at this time of year. I have to say that what really makes it is the lovely, friendly and chatty staff. Good for children - they have high chairs and a box of toys for the kids to play with, and baby changing facilities. Possibly not the best place to go for wheelchair users as it is a 16th century castle so there a few steps up and down here and there.
I had Cullen Skink and the boys had a cheese toastie split between them then we all had pancakes with butter and jam. Including a pot of tea for me, three cartons of fruit juice and a cup of milk, the bill came to £12.
The lunch menu has an array of sandwiches, toasties and baked potatoes as well as chilli and a couple of other options. I offered the boys home-made sticky toffee pudding but, to my disappointment, they just wanted pancakes and I didn't want to order the pudding just for me! The pancakes are warm and fresh and they also offer scones and a selection of lovely looking home-baking.
It is definitely worth a visit - either a day out including a tour of the castle or just a quick piece of cake after a great dog walk.
