The Castle Cafe

Enjoy a Warm Welcome at the Castle Cafe

Our award winning Castle Cafe is located alongside the historic Balhousie Castle and offers a friendly, informal dining experience with table service in relaxed surroundings. When the sun is shining you can choose to dine al fresco in the Castle courtyard.

Throughout the year our menus change to reflect seasonality offering high-quality freshly prepared breakfasts, delicious lunches, homemade soups and light dishes alongside a tempting selection of scones, cakes and desserts.

All funds raised through our Castle Cafe and venue hire helps to sustain the Home of The Black Watch and supports us to achieve our charitable aims.

Afternoon Tea at the Castle

Enjoy an elegant Afternoon Tea at the Castle. This tradition was first made popular by Anna Russell, the seventh Duchess of Bedford, in 1840. It is said The Duchess would become peckish in between her lunch and late evening meal therefore she began inviting friends to join her in her rooms at Woburn Abbey for tea and light refreshments; and so the tradition of Afternoon Tea began.


This uniquely British experience can be enjoyed in our charming Castle Cafe or the stylish Queen Mother Room.

From £16.95 per person, served from 2.00pm daily.
