Location and contact

The Old Mill in Killearn, formerly a weaving mill and now a characterful pub and restaurant within this charming 18th Century steading, complete with open fires, rustic touches and cosy snug. Our beer garden, with childrens play area, offers a very relaxed alfresco dining option for both lunch and dinner, which is always a winner when the sun is shining. During more typical Scottish weather you can warm up by the open fire with a wee dram. Our menu offers the best of local Scottish produce, responsibly sourced, lovingly prepared and skillfully presented.

Visited here for a birthday Sunday lunch last month. Food was great and the staff were attentive and friendly. Thoroughly enjoyed our visit and will certainly return in the future.
