A great value day out, the Archerfield estate has two shops, a cafe, restaurant, monthly supper club, micro-brewery and children's play area on site, as well as being right on the John Muir way, and, of course, being home to some pretty good golf links.

Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2017 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £5.95 (+p&p).

Part of East Lothian’s Archerfield Estate, the Walled Garden’s mellow brick shelters a complex of fine wooden buildings with enough on offer to keep all members of the family fed and entertained on a day out. Head chef Richard Wire’s kitchen starts off with breakfast and brunch, and sends out soups and sandwiches day long. Lunch and periodic evening dining takes things up a notch, with recommended wines and plentiful evidence of imaginative use of produce fresh from their own gardens or brought in by hand-picked suppliers. There’s a decent kids' menu, a wooden outdoor play area and walking trails, while the bar and microbrewery tour will appeal to those keen to find out more about the trio of Archerfield ales brewed on-site. And if all that (plus the deli and gift shop) is too energetic, there’s a log fire in the bar and plenty of comfy sofas.
