“If You Love Home Baking This Is The Place”
Review of Penpont Tea Room

Penpont Tea Room
Ranked #2 of 3 Coffee & Tea in Thornhill
Description: Penpont tea room We visited this small village tea room at the end of a river walk on a lovely spring day. The walk starts just down the road from the tea room, passed the garage, over the bridge and the path starts just to the left. Follow the path next to the river and then turn right at the end and right at the T junction. It takes around 2 hours. The tea room is shared with the village Post Office and run by 2 ladies that make all their own cakes. Prices were very respectable and they're very used to walkers, even keeping cold bottles of tap water in the fridge. Generally a great little find.

“If You Love Home Baking This Is The Place”
Reviewed 6 September 2013

Unfortunately (a weird start to a review you may think...........read on)........................I live very close to this wonderful tea room!!!!! The food is excellant and home made and the cakes and tray bakes.......................now, you see why I say "unfortunately"............are absolutely excellant and not tiny wee slices either. You can sit in the light, airy and very clean tea room or you can have a carry out. This is a bit too much of a temptation for me as going down for a cake to have after lunch turns into a delicious well filled toll and two or even 3 cakes as I like to sample anything new. It is wonderful value for money, especially as everything is home made and the staff are lovely and very friendly. They have recently taken over the running of the post office on the retiral of the Post Mistress and I wish them well as they provide a wonderful service, not only to visitors, but to the rest of us in the village also as I know a few local people who, rather than cook, get their evening meal from the tea room, either going and sitting down or as a carryout as it is cost effective, no prep, no washing up.................yeah!!!!!! Penpont Tea Toom................we love you!!!!!!!

“Xmas evening meal”
Reviewed 27 December 2012

Do not eat here unless you have had a sandwich before going. Food portions miniscule & laughable - if we were not so hungry.Food was well presented so you could see plenty of the plate
Really someone just trying to be a foodie and failing

“A lovely wee tearoom in a really nice little village.”
Reviewed 10 November 2012

We went to the Penpont tearoom for a mid morning breakfst and ended up buying some of the baking as a carryout. Lovely BLT and beautiful baking. Will definitely be visiting again. Seems to be a busy place.

“Brilliant Tea Room Worth a de-tour !!”
Reviewed 7 November 2012

Dropped by Penpont Tea Room on reccomendation from Rik's Bike Shed, we had just hired some bikes and were in need of quick refreshment before making our onward journey ! I was very pleased to see haggis on the menu (my absoloute favourite dish !) I sampled a cheese and haggis toastie, my husband had the haggis and mincemeat pastie and my daughter had a homemade sausage roll, all were equally delicious. We definetly reccomend the pasties, also homemade ! The staff were friendly and very accomodating even though we had called by at the end of lunch service. Excellent value for money, couldn't fault the prices at all ! Brilliant discovery, if we are in the area again we will be back !!

“MARVELLOUS BAKING IN TEAROOM IN SOU'WEST SCOTLAND”
Reviewed 30 October 2012

The Penpont tea room , in the small village of Penpont , near Thornhill , is well worth a visit . Superb baking and savouries make it a tasty treat in Bonnie Galloway . You can also conveniently post your letters or post cards in the post office section which shares the floor space . The Penpont tearomm is a real find just for the quality of its baking and cakes .
