Food & Drink

Strathpeffer has many establishments spread throughout the village that provide everything from a quick snack or a cup of tea, right through to a fine dining experience.  In addition to those listed below there are four large hotels which principally cater for their own guests.  During the day these tend to be quieter, and some serve lunch.

Museum Coffee Shop

The Museum Coffee Shop is located just down from the Museum of Childhood on the platform of the Victorian Station at the bottom of the village.  There is plenty of car parking here.

The Coffee Shop has a reputation for fine coffee and teas, home baking, freshly produced snacks and traditional home cooked meals. There is a unique ambience where, in warm weather, you can eat al fresco on the platform, protected by the station awning.

Opening Hours:

10am - 5pm seven days a week (subject to change in winter months )
