Take the chance to find out about the history of shortbread, Scotland’s national biscuit, in our Visitor Centre, and learn how Dean’s has grown from local fund-raising activity to a global shortbread brand.
You can then spend time in our viewing gallery where you can watch our staff at work in the purpose-built bakery (weekdays only).
Our light and airy café and bistro combines a spacious downstairs eating area and relaxing upstairs gallery with comfortable sofas. Whether you want a snack, home bake or hot meal, we have a delicious menu to tempt you.
We also have a baby food and bottle heating facility, as well as free WiFi, so you can catch up with your friends and family while you relax.
With Christmas almost upon us, why not celebrate with a festive lunch at Dean’s. Bring your friends, colleagues or the whole office, and enjoy our delicious Christmas menu in the café bistro. Our regular menu will still be available, and bookings can only be taken for Christmas lunch Monday to Friday
