I have had several lunches at Anta pottery and am impressed by the home made soups and oatcakes. Whooly recommended. Mind your wallet though as the rather fantastic stoneware and soft furnishings are not at all cheap and you're likely to spend a lot! A...More

popped in today for lunch to be met with "no soup, its finished", so on offer was Ploughmans Lunch or cakes, opted for Ploughmans as a semi healthy option. At £6 thought it would be small but don't mind as it was after all lunch....More

We were travelling round the Highlands and as a big fan of the George Street Anta shop in Edinburgh, I was so looking forward to visiting the factory shop. We arrived at 1.50pm and upon opening the door were swiftly told they were shutting at...More

Probably best not described as 'factory shop and tearoom'. Well designed space with cafe well off the beaten track. Simple, but carefully cooked and presented, lunch including home made oatcakes and strong coffee. Plus delicious soup and scone. Pleasant, knowledgeable service. Food matches the quality...More

We were really looking forward to our trip here as when we lived in Edinburgh Anta was one of our favourite shops. We stopped for lunch at the factory shop which is a small shed in he middle of nowhere and certainly nothing to do...More

Gorgeous soup. Pea and sweetcorn. It was really hot and a generous helping. Best I've tasted. Serves with a lovely big cheese scone by a very lovely lady last Tuesday. I'm going to phone and ask for recipe as not in cook book we bought....More
