Another tasty lunch here-soups,toasties quiche, puddings and cakes all to be highly recommended. The service is friendly and efficient and the prices are reasonable given the overall quality. Museum display had changed from last time- visit this interesting local treasure.

Home made cakes were a delight after a leisurely stroll along the path from the mill to the river tumbling over rocks.

Easy access directly off the main road, plenty of parking, secure and safe stroll to the cafe. Historic decor and the chance to look around the exhibits before or after tea, coffee or lunch. Very reasonable price, all home produced products.

Very often stop here whilst walking the dog. The home baking is fantastic and the staff are very helpful. Always pleasant. Haven't visited the museum in a long time, but it's worth a visit.

If it's The Museum of Ayrshire Country Life and Costume at Dalgarven Mill you want to visit, I think we paid £4.50 per adult, sorry I don't know the price for children. Hope this is of help. We really enjoyed our visit and... More
