The Olde Toll House tea room in West Linton – just next to the playground in the park. Good soup but they don’t do real bread here – not enough demand apparently. Coffee machine is noisier than a washing machine so bring your ear plugs!
The Flotterstone Inn – a great place for a hot bowl of venison and vegetable soup today, after a bracing walk in the winter air. Family run and very dog friendly. Popular with walkers.
