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.

Detailed review by M


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.


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.


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.


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!


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?


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.
