Dine at Carfraemill Restaurant

Carfraemill is renowned for its food and warm hospitality - a local favourite for family suppers, romantic dinners, Sunday roasts, Scottish afternoon teas, Scottish high teas and hearty breakfasts. Family friendly and baby friendly with everything you need for little ones.

We like to keep things local when it comes to our food. Where possible we use Scottish Borders-sourced ingredients. We have a "Taste our Best" award from VisitScotland as well as being a finalist in the 2017 Thistle Awards for "Best Informal Eating Experience" within Lothian and Borders.

Our guests can now benefit from an Electric Vehicle Charge Point free of charge.
