Hot on the heels of Callendar House winning the Scottish Hospitality Awards 2018 Tourist Attraction of the Year, the Tearoom at Callendar House has been announced as the Association of Cultural Enterprises' Cafe of the Month. The Association promotes excellence in cultural trading together with best practice and its members are all passionate about their work in the cultural and heritage sector.
The Tearoom was also recently awarded a VisitScotland Taste Our Best Award. Its imaginative and seasonal menus use locally sourced produce, and delicious freshly baked scones come in a variety of flavours, including a Scone of the Day as well as an ever-changing array of freshly baked cakes and biscuits. The Tearoom is a popular destination with local clientele who pop in for a coffee or lunch with friends, and it also attracts larger group bookings for celebratory afternoon teas and lunches, helping to raise the profile of the museum and attract repeat visitors.
Callendar House Tearoom will now be entered into ACE's Grand Final of Cafe of the Year, which will take place early in 2019.
