Location of Ettrick Bay Tearoom



Ettrick Bay Tearoom has a car park for the use of customers.

Public Transport

Ettrick Bay Tearoom is on the West Coast Motors 490/90 bus route but this does not run year-round. There is no service to Ettrick Bay in the winter months - you would need to walk the 2 miles from Port Bannatyne instead which on a fine day is a lovely stroll following the path of the old tramway.

Ettrick Bay Tearoom Environment and Facilities Basic and nostalgic

Environment and Facilities


Basic and nostalgic
Ettrick Bay Tearoom is your traditional seaside cafe. Some might say 'greasy spoon' but that is a dis-service to the food which is much better than that. But it sums up the environment nicely.

Ettrick Bay Tearoom Menu Surprisingly broad menu



Surprisingly broad menu
For a small beach cafe the menu is surprisingly broad and there's usually a specials board too, and plenty of choice of home-made goods such as their delicious cakes, ice-creams and more. Most hot food is prepared fresh and the menu typically includes a variety of sandwiches, burgers, omelettes, chicken dishes (their wings are famous!), soups, fish & chips and more.

Ettrick Bay Tearoom Staff Always pleasant and hard-working



Always pleasant and hard-working
On busy days (most days - it's a popular place!) the staff are zipping around like worker bees, but they are efficient and pleasant.

Ettrick Bay Tearoom Speed of Service Depends on what you order and when you order it

Speed of Service


Depends on what you order and when you order it
Most food is prepared freshly to order so there may be a wait, especially at peak times. It's worth it though!

Ettrick Bay Tearoom Quality of Food Always excellent and plentiful

Quality of Food


Always excellent and plentiful
Portions are great, and the quality is always spot on. There's a bit of an over-dependence on the griddle and fryers, but you probably knew that BEFORE you visited, right?

Ettrick Bay Tearoom Value for Money Keen pricing

Value for Money


Keen pricing
I'm always surprised when the bill comes. Compared to most cafes in the town, the tearoom is a bargain. This, and the spectacular location, make it a no-brainer which is probably why it is always popular even in the depths of winter.
