Afternoon Tea during the COVID-19 crisis


With lockdown restrictions easing and in accordance with guidance issued by the Scottish Government, Arduthie Tea Rooms re-opened the Tea Room on Tuesday 21st July, offering light lunches of soup, sandwiches, and quiches (all homemade) and the usual scones, cakes, and bakes.

See menu : (  )

Only the dining room will be open and there will be fewer tables available, though we are hoping to make the outside seating area more sheltered.

Our opening times will be slightly shorter : 10.00am to 4.00pm Tuesday to Saturday.


Table Bookings Update: Because there are now fewer tables in the dining room, we have removed the red sofa and chairs and replaced these with a proper table with 4 chairs. All our tables are now bookable though it is not possible for us to accommodate parties of more than 4 at a table and from more than 2 households.  One of the OUTSIDE tables will be able to cater for larger parties (though still from 2 households only).


We have prepared the Tea Room to offer a safe environment for customers to visit and relax with friends and enjoy our wonderful coffees and teas, cakes and scones.

  • Afternoon Tea

Home Baking

Scones of treacle, fruit, and cheese are all homebaked for you to please. With cakes and bakes of different sizes, the sight of which mesmerises. The homemade soups and quiche and pie ensure you leave us satisfied. 


Freshly Ground Coffee

With so many coffee shops it's tough to compete but we've found a supplier whose coffee's a treat.  It's ground for each customer as orders arrive with powers to relax and powers to revive. Flat white, cappucino, espresso, and more and all in a setting that we think you'll adore.
