Carfraemill in the Scottish Borders

Due to current COVID-19 Government Guidelines we are currently closed until the 31st of January. In normal times, we are open all day from 7am until 10:30pm. 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.

We have lots of COVID-safety measures in our restaurant and rooms. You can contact us to book a table, a room, afternoon tea, or even an "afternoon tea in a box" any time.

Meetings: work meetings, where required, are available any day, subject to arrangement.

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.
