The inside of this tearoom is amazing. It must be seen to be believed. We enjoyed a delightful lunch. The menu is limited, but the food is delicious and served with care and some might say love. The deserts are exotic in name and taste....More

The best high tea we've ever had. Here on holiday and after going to kittys everywhere else we went seemed second best. Lovely staff, lovely atmosphere and fabulous food. Would have gone every day if we'd found it sooner 😁

Description
The history surrounding Kitty's has made it unique, being set in a Victorian house, built by a retired sea captain circa 1840. The Captain commisioned local carpenters to put in place the wonderful panelled ceiling, removed from a ship which was broken up in nearby Palnackie Harbour. The origional panneled ceiling and walls, still survive to this day and I'm sure you'll agree the workmanship was second to none. Kitty is privilaged to own and run this small family buisness in such beautiful surroundings. And looks forward to welcoming you. OPEN SEVEN DAYS A WEEK FROM EASTER WEEKEND TO BEGINING OF NOVEMBER.
