The scenery alone makes a diversion here worthwhile – set between rolling hills the Larder has a panoramic view of Loch Leven. In the food hall, shelves are stacked with a carefully chosen selection of goodies from local producers: cheeses, craft spirits and ales, preserves and confectionary. An artisan bakery creates delicious breads and pastries using high-quality local ingredients.
The Larder stands at the heart of the family’s farm and crates of vegetables are delivered direct from the fields, where chefs transform them into imaginative seasonal dishes. The informal, family-friendly atmosphere in the café, where visitors can walk straight in from the Loch Leven Heritage Trail, makes it the perfect place to slow down and appreciate fresh local food. If you’re in a hurry the Greenhouse Café is designed for express visits.
There’s plenty of parking and the 1.5-mile path around the fields is suitable for buggies. There’s also a play area, making it a great place to enjoy some fresh air.
