Carfraemill is a foodie hub set in a gorgeous rural location in the Scottish Borders - we are just 30 mins from Edinburgh and 5 mins north of the Royal Burgh of Lauder. It's a great place to eat, drink and meet friends at any time of the day.
Carfraemill has been part of the Scottish Borders landscape for generations - once an important coaching inn on the Edinburgh-to-the-South route, today it continues to be a fantastic place for friends to gather and to eat great food. Carfraemill is run by the Sutherland family who have a passion for serving up honest, simple and locally-produced food. The family also own and run a sheep farm just a mile away (ask for a map of walking routes when you visit!).
Our fresh ingredients are sourced from the outstanding food producers that the Scottish Borders and the Lothians have to offer. This has helped us to become famous for incredible steaks, fish & chips, Sunday roasts that can't be beaten, sticky toffee puddings, Carfraemill meringues and homemade soups. In addition, our bistro-style dishes change with the seasons and are inspired by local charcuterie, the best butcher cuts of Borders meat, local wild game, freshly-caught fish, produce from Borders' smokeries, local organic herbs and vegetables, organic eggs, award-winning cheese, seasonal berries, farmhouse ice-creams as well as our own homebaking from recipes passed down over the years.
We are family-friendly and baby-friendly. As well as a super kids' menu, we have plenty of high chairs, colouring-in materials and a toy corner.
We serve food all day, 7.30pm to 9.00pm so whether you're looking for breakfast, coffee, lunch, afternoon tea, high tea, or dinner, our chefs and bakers will cook to order. We have capacity for large groups if required - please call ahead.
