Location and contact

It is not a secret, but still hard to post it that we had to let the Tearoom go.Our lease has finished and no matter how hard we tried to keep our “Green Hut Restaurant”, the decision wasn’t in our hands. It would have been the most magical place to own.We had an opportunity last year to take on the Restaurant at Poppies Hotel, Callander. We called it Poppy Seed. We will keep our Poppy Seed Restaurant for another year and see what happens. We might finally own something, keep you posted.We let the Tearoom go but not all that we have achieved. We would like to introduce the Tearoom menu at Poppy Seed. The one that made us known and brought satisfaction to your palates. If you are looking for good food, we are still here for you. This time, at the edge of the town in Callander.open from 12-9.

We were heading to see you again, as we have done the last two years after stumbling across your "tearoom" by accident. Your food was gorgeous. Sorry you have moved on and good luck in your new venture. Those idiots who gave your bad review...More

We went back to this tea room as we had enjoyed our previous visit. However it is closed but the owners have moved to Poppies in Callender which is more expensive but very good.

After walking for over 9 miles, myself and my fellow walkers were looking forward to refreshments at this tea room. We were seated outside, no menus offered, one of waitresses just said ‘What do want?’ To one of our group. We all made our orders,...More

The Brig o' Turk Tearoom will be a delightful little stop on your way up the road! Each table having its own set of salf and pepper shakers and personalised doily reflected the vintage charm. The mismatched crockery only added to the appeal of this...More
