Carfraemill in the Scottish Borders

Our family run restaurant with rooms is nestled into the edge of the Lammermuir Hills in the north Scottish Borders. Carfraemill is just 30 minutes south of Edinburgh, conveniently close to the A68 to Lauder giving easy access to historic Border country. With an award-winning restaurant & individually styled bedrooms, this country retreat is the perfect place to escape the city.

Carfraemill has always been a place that gathers people together. We host weddings, parties, family get-togethers, business events & meetings: from small, intimate affairs in a cosy private room, to larger events in our country lodge reception room or fabulous marquee.

We have a Certificate of Excellence from TripAdvisor thanks to some great reviews from our guests. Our restaurant was one of three finalists in the 2017 "Best Informal Eating Experience" at Scotland's Thistle Awards for Lothian and Borders. Open for food 7am with last orders at 9pm (or 8pm Sunday-Thursday between January and March).

Electric vehicle charge point available free of charge for our guests.
