1745 Cottage Restaurant

The 1745 Cottage Restaurant is open during the day when the house is open to the public

Superb Reputation

Situated in the old walled garden it has won a superb reputation for its delicious home made soups and lunches as well as its tempting scones and home baking. Take a look at the menu.

The cheerful attractive interior of the cottage can seat up to 50 people and the patio and walled garden outside takes 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.

The 1745 Cottage Restaurant is available to all visitors of Traquair House and is open when the house is open.
