A quick coffee stop. Friendly service in a spotlessly clean and modern building. Ablutions also spotless.

Fantastic place with great views of the Bass Rock & Tantalon Castle. Very welcoming and friendly staff. Excellent food with super servings, even an area to eat outdoors. A hidden gem.

Came with the girls for a spa day for a couple of big birthdays in our group. Absolutely loved it. The afternoon tea was delicious and the service in the orangery was very warm and welcoming. Our Spa experience was amazing from the lovely welcome we got at your main reception (we’re all 100% jealous about her fab hair but we won’t hold that against her 😁) The spa manager and therapists were first class and the facilities, including our private changing area and chill out room, were so relaxing. All in, we can’t fault this place. Thank you everyone for a lovely day to remember. We’ll definitely be back. X

We had a good lunch with exciting food. It made us feel comfortable and happy. Waitresses could not have been nicer. The ambience is pleasant and the setting just beautiful

We found out about the Whitekirk Hill while staying in Dunbar. We were looking for something new to entertain our four-year-old boy. He loved his session at the play barn, and so did we. It became one of our favourite “play park”, and we happily drove 45 minutes from Edinburgh to come back. We love the concept, lots of sensory play, wooden toys, building blocks space, a great slide, reading nooks and even a little spot outdoor. Important to mention that the coffee is delicious, always a plus for the grown-ups.We tried the restaurant next to the Play Barn, and we were disappointed to be honest. The food was okay but pricey and pub menu style. We booked a table as we read great reviews and saw some lovely photos on other google reviews. We were hoping for a menu with creative food options. However, I think we got unlucky and did not have access to the same menu. It was mainly burgers, sandwiches and toasties. We visited on a Sunday for lunch.We will come back for the Play Barn but not for the restaurant.
