Owner description: Belhaven Fruit Farm, the home of IceDelight and Pick Your Own! ** New for 2013 ** The Store at Belhaven, our brilliant new farm shop and cafe with amazing IceDelight factory. Come along and help yourself to your favourite flavour and choice of wonderful toppings!IceDelight is our luxury fat-free, dairy-free and gluten-free alternative to ice cream. We've blended our home-grown Scottish fruit with an authentic Italian recipe to create a unique, luxuriously creamy dessert as healthy and tasty as real fruit. All of our five delicious flavours of strawberry, raspberry, blackcurrant, lemon and gooseberry & elderflower count towards your ‘five-a-day’ and are completely suitable for vegans. All of our flavours are available for purchase in a range of sizes at Belhaven Fruit Farm and many other establishments throughout East Lothian. Belhaven Fruit Farm also offers delicious mouth watering PYO strawberries grown under cover at waist height. No more bending or sore backs, so come along and bring all the family. We also offer blackcurrants, gooseberries and blackberries as well as a fantastic farm Shop and cafe with outdoor seating area and children's play park. There is also ample car parking and easy disabled access. Here at Belhaven Fruit Farm we think that our fruit tastes best when it's fresh off the plant and warm from the sun; we would love you to come down to Belhaven Fruit Farm and see just how tasty fresh fruit can be!

Ah my tummy hurts from all the strawberries I ate ... not helped by the chocolate meringue on top which I also bought there. Gorgeous strawberries and friendly staff, it must be under new management as I can't relate to the poor reviews at all.

Late August, strawberry season, hmmmm.

Yes, we'll take 4 punnets (too many), errr, no, we now have a fridge full of the most delicious strawberries ever tasted, and blackberries too.

The strawb's are housed in polytunnels and not like when I was a kid, on the floor, but on stands at chest height (thank you nice people) A kilo for £4.95 which is roughly 4 punnets full, you can't go wrong.

The blackberries too, not the prickly wild varieties but spikeless brambles with big and juicy fruits.

They have a play area for little kids, a shop - I think we bought all the food there! and an Ice cream place - not tried due to travelling.
Helpful and knowledgeable staff

Anything against it? No.

Value for money? Yes, but you'll probably spend a bit but that's ok.

Key question: Would I go back? Yes, you can't get fruit fresher than this.

The Store at Belhaven Fruit Farm is one of my wife's 'hang out' joints for meeting other mums who have young children. The light meals, coffees, etc. are good, it's very conveniently located on the Thistly Cross roundabout on the A1. There is plenty of car parking space and a good play area for children. If your nipper(s) like trains, and most little boys do, the additional bonus is that it's adjacent to the East Coast Main Line so there are plenty of trains zooming by.

It's far enough away from the A1 that traffic noise isn't a problem. The strawberries are legendary; so big, juicy and perfumed, unlike the anodyne supermarket varieties.

The Store itself stocks Thistly Cross cider, fresh fruit and veg, and a large selection of high quality ready meals from the COOK brand which has a branch in Morningside.

Why not pop in if you're passing by on the A1?

The Store cafe at Belhaven Fruit Farm is a real find, using local produce and the shop as its source. The food is great, especially the full Scottish breakfast and the monthly supper club should be kept as a secret. Well worth a visit when in East Lothian.

We called in here to pass an hour and was pleasantly surprised. The shop was well stocked and the café looked nice although we didn't eat here. We bought come nice local ciders and loved the frozen fruit (ice cream style). My 3 year old had fun playing in the kids play area while we ate our "Iced Delight".
