“what a place”
Reviewed 7 September 2013

We stayed at a nearby caravan site and saw the signs so we stopped for coffee. We were made very welcome, coming from a farming background I spoke to the owner. This is a working dairy farm and the milk is used to make their own ice cream in there own ice cream making facilities. Fresh or what? The restaurant is very clean the service is excellent and the staff will stop and talk to you. The food is high quality and the price is not exorbitant. This place has been open about seven years and a lot of money has been spent on it. The views are out of this world. Well worth a visit.

“Ice cream and lager...”
Reviewed 31 August 2013

We were over at Culcreuch with friends at a lodge and decided to go for a walk and came across the Courtyard cafe at Knockraich Farm. We were made welcome by the owner of the farm when we enquired about his olive tree. The whole place seems to be family run and the standard of service was very good and the waitress was very helpful when the ladies were picking their ice cream which they unanimously agreed were great. A couple of us stuck to cold lagers which hit the spot also. A great little place.

“New favourite cafe!”
Reviewed 22 June 2013 via mobile

Went with my husband today. He found in on trip advisor, and after reading the good reviews, we decided to take a wee trip out to Fintry. I am so glad we did. Beautiful gardens, lovely building, gorgeously furnished, and delicious food and smooth coffee!
We sat at table 1 in big comfy armchairs looking out into a small garden. We had an excellent view if a swallows nest too. And watched as the mummy birds swooped back and forth to feed her chicks. We could see their wee beaks chirping out the top of the nest! So cute. ... Anyway, back to the cafe!
Andrew had a latte £2-ish, soup and a ham and mustard sandwich. Lovely thick soup. And a good thick sandwich. Which also had crisps on the side. Think it was just under £7 for both. I had a gingerbread latte £2.40ish - which was lovely and smooth. I forgot to ask whether the milk used was from the farm. And we both had scones with jam and cream - under £2.50 each which were lovely.
Service was excellent. Girls were very polite and courteous.
The table across from us ordered salads that looked amazing. Think I might try one next time! Will defiantly be back.
We also bought a tub of plain yoghurt at £1.85 for a big pot. We had some just there, and it was really good. Creamy and not too sour for plain yoghurt.
