Ochiltrees Cafe is fantastic, we couldn't have asked for any better, the food was delicious, staff were super friendly and attentive, excellent value for money in a lovely setting what's not to love. We will be back again soon. Thank you.

A stylish environment with a warm welcome from the staff. The food is varied with a range of scones cakes teas and coffee. Full meals are available that provide for most tastes. The menu prices are reasonable. Attractive views of the estate are easily accessible from the large windows and complement the dining experience.

Very helpful friendly staff. Who happily changed my booking twice at my request. Pre booked lunch arrived all together on time. No complaints from anyone on our table. We all enjoyed our lunch.

Low ratings are the only way to convey my experience with the booking system. It took me half an hour to book a table and four coffees!! I first had to understand the sequence of choosing/confirming, then had to repeat that for each guest - thank goodness it was only coffee and not a whole meal. Once in Ochiltrees the service was fine, room a bit cold, but couldn't recommend simply because of the system.

Very enjoyable experience all round with friendly, welcoming staff serving well-presented and tasty food. I wonder if the Sunday roast could be included as one of the possible choices to pre-order, please? Looking forward to a further visit soon.

Ochiltrees is a lovely, bright and airy café, with plenty of space between the tables, which is reassuring. The young staff are friendly and welcoming - nothing is too much trouble. The food is well prepared, delicious and presented nicely. As a regular visitor I am delighted to say that every visit is an undoubted pleasure. Excellent!

I’d give six starts for service if I could, the two people working were both so lovely and helpful. Food was delicious and the cafe itself is a very nice space.
