Food and Drink

Treat your tastebuds at Bowhill

After all the art and culture of Bowhill House and the fresh air of the Country Estate you’ll need a pick-me-up. You can enjoy a delicious selection of snacks and lunches in our Minstrel Tearoom. We stock a variety of wines, beers, teas and coffees and soft drinks, and use local produce where possible.

Step inside and you’ll find a welcoming atmosphere where good quality and simplicity are paramount. From warming, hearty soups to the freshest, crispest salads, our menu is designed to delight your tastes and satisfy your appetite. Our sumptuous home-baked cakes and scones have made many visitors ask for the recipe.

Take a look at our Bowhill Tearoom Menu 2019 to see what we mean.

The Minstrel Tearoom is open every day the Estate is, six days a week (closed on Tuesdays) and seven days a week in July and August (see our opening times page for details). The Tearoom is also available for private functions or group visits.

Afternoon Tea

If you’re looking for somewhere to enjoy afternoon tea in the Borders, Bowhill couldn’t be a more special place to do so. We have a delicious menu (with or without Prosecco) for you to enjoy with friends and family. Available only through pre-booking, ideally twenty four hours before. See sample menu here.
