It's a nice building. The menu in the café is very limited (don't go there hungry) but I suppose that is understandable since it does look quiet. The homemade oatcakes were about the best thing with the soup and ploughmans (the only non cake items...More

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

My husband and I visited the Anta shop and cafe the other day. We have already visited the shops in Edinburgh and London. We had read some of the negative reviews which was a bit off-putting. However, we thoroughly enjoyed it. Yes, it is in...More

Had a lovely but overpriced lunch in a very nice bright clean café. Disappointed at the extreme prices on some items. Harris tweed is less expensive. I prefer locally produced items but I think they are way overpriced. My main issue though is with the...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
