Scottish Food and Drink Fortnight

As part of Scottish Food & Drink Fortnight, the annual celebration of Scotland's fantastic produce which takes place every September, the Callendar House Tearoom will be serving up some tasty treats whether you’re in for just a quick bite or a hearty lunch! Last year more than 320 events took place as part of Scottish Food & Drink Fortnight and you can find out more on their website.

Taking place between 6th and 21st September, the Tearoom will be serving the following Scottish Specials in addition to their usual menu:
