1745 Cottage Restaurant
The 1745 Cottage Restaurant is situated in the old walled garden and has won a superb reputation for its delicious home made soups and lunches as well as its tempting scones and home baking.
The cheerful attractive interior of the cottage can seat up to 50 people and the patio and walled garden outside take many more. On a sunny day there are few more relaxing places to have lunch or a snack than under the sprawling apple trees in the garden. A wonderful place for children to run around and for parents to eat and enjoy.
For group catering please see our group menus
All menu items are subject to availability.
The 1745 Tearoom is available to all visitors of Traquair House and is open when the house is open.
