About
There really is something for everyone at Crieff Visitor Centre. A warm welcome, great food, space for the children to play, fantastic gifts, unique fashions and accessories, specialist homeware, viewing area for the Caithness Glass Factory, a Garden Centre packed with great ideas and plants, the Drovers exhibition and the Art Gallery and Antiques area. Located in the beautiful town of Crieff, surrounded by hills and countryside it’s perfect for exploring the area or perhaps enjoying a spot of retail therapy and great coffee with friends.•In the Garden & Plant Centre we have something for every garden and gardener, from shrubs and plants to tools, bird houses and ornaments and much more.•In our Gift shop and showrooms we sell beautiful gifts and souvenirs, fashions, outdoor clothing and accessories including jewellery, shoes and handbags. There’s also music and books as well as speciality whiskies and other Scottish Gifts. •This is home to the famous Caithness Glass where you can buy a range of quality glassware and paperweights and also view the craftsmen and women at work in the factory next door. You can even make your own paperweight!•Next door there is an excellent little Tartan Shop and Art Gallery and Antiques area for those interested in the finer things in life.•A visit to the centre would not be complete without stopping off at our Drover’s Restaurant where we serve fresh local produce cooked on the premises by our skilled chefs. Here you can enjoy the very best in Scottish cuisine from a simple cup of tea with one of our delicious homemade cakes to a full mouth-watering meal.•And finally there is the Drover’s Exhibition which follows the Lives and Times of the Highland Drovers - very relevant locally as the Crieff October Tryst (market) was the centre of the droving trade in the 18th and early 19th centuries.

    Excellent Lunch
    Recently visited during a short stay break in Crieff. The visiter centre is very good .we dined with friends for lunch and had the broccoli soup which was very good and reasonably priced. The centre also sells glasswear and we purchased nice whiskey glasses which were very well priced. Definitely worth a visit when in the area

    Very Poor Car Park, Confused Layout and a bit the Worse for Wear
    We saw the sign after a visit to Drummond Castle and Gardens. It has very poor car park full of pot holes/craters which give it an industrial feel. It wasn't clear what it was and where things were. A smallish garden centre, a restaurant, small antiques section and glass. Not a place to return to.

    Wonderfully clean.Amazing staff team!
    Visiting with young children ,We stopped to use toilet.Spotless toilets. We also asked if hot food was possible at 4pm.Lovely lovely lady in the restaurant area advised we could (clear notice no hot food after 4pm)indeed get hot food,to accommodate little ones.There were some amazing looking scones also sponge 🍰 cake (if just looking for something small and fresh.) We only asked as kids were hungry,but we were very grateful. Lovely pot of jam purchased at gift shop.We can only genuinely say that the staff were lovely and welcoming.The place was spotless. When in the area again we will return. Very impressed overall.🍰

    Very good visit
    This was recommended to us, so we thought let's give it a visit. It was good, went to the cafe, and had lunch. The food was tasty and reasonably priced too. Only the tea went cold quickly. Shop and glass area were good too. Staff were pleasant and courteous.

    Worse than Average overpriced food
    Very expensive for the lack of quality. Would call again for a coffee but definitely nothing more. We paid just over £51.00 for our meals 2 x fish and chips which was frozen fish that has been so over cooked it was rock hard, a scone which was so dry it was like dust and loaded fries that were a grease laden mess. Never mind live and learn.

Only stopped by for a cuppa. One staff member was handling cutlery with bare hands, no gloves. Also toilets were rather smelly & could do with a thorough cleaning. Glad we weren't eating there.

Restaurant seemed quiet. No chat from woman behind counter. Ordered and sat down to wait. We waited so long that I had to ask where my toastie was. Customers who came after us were served first!!
Girl went in to kitchen and a young guy cane out right away with it. He apologised but the staff behind counter said nothing. Our coffe was now cold before we got our food !!
We also noticed that staff behind counter wore normal clothes and tidied their hair, then served food !! Didn’t seem hygienic but I don’t know the rules for handling food. Not a good experience
The toastie was tasty!

Popped in here for breakfast and shopping.
The food wasn't the best, I wouldn't recommend eating here.
The shopping was great, lots of interesting bits to buy.
The best part was the Caithness Glass shop where you could learn about how it is made and buy some absolutely lovely pieces.

We have visited often through the years but not for the past 8 yrs. Very tired and poorly stocked. Restaurant slow when half empty and noisy music. In desperate need of TLC.

Very poor customer service. Arrived at 11.40 saw that 2 menues by the restaurant entrance were advertising pancakes or waffles with bacon and maple syrup. Great just what the doctor orderd after a ling drive. Only to be told at the counter oh were not serving them now we stop at 11.30. Then take the bloody advertising down its misleading false advertising. So won't be back, as for the so called antique center that's not up ro much either . My advice rubbish all round
