Relax and enjoy a little taste of indulgence
Welcome to the Hidden Treasure House pop-up tearoom! Looking for a little decadence and self-indulgence that you can share with friends? I’d like to invite you to enjoy the unique experience of a secret home tearoom for yourself. At hidden treasure house you will be served the finest quality, most delicious foods, in the cosy, relaxed and informal surroundings of my home.
We create delicious menu’s and offer boutique brunch, delectable lunch, traditional afternoon teas and delicious dinners all created with the adventurous foodie in mind! We have a selection of table sizes and due to the nature of home restaurants you may be seated with people you haven’t met before, it’s a little bit like a dinner party with restaurant quality food.
I take great pride in the food and drink that we prepare and serve. I go to great lengths to find the finest quality, local and as many organic ingredients as I can find. All of our food is homemade fresh from scratch.
We open twice a month on a Friday, Saturday and Sunday from April to December and have two or three sittings per day, each sitting has a different theme and offers a different type of meal.
We are not licenced to sell alcohol but you are welcome to bring your own, we do not charge corkage and you are welcome to take home any you have left over at the end of your meal.
Spaces fill up fast so make sure you book early to avoid disappointment!
We are also available for private parties and special occasions if you have 12 or more guests. Contact us for further information.
Shhhhhhhh….It’s A Secret
My secret pop-up tearoom is situated in a large country house in the stunning peaceful surroundings of the Galloway countryside. Privately located away from the main road, we are close to the tiny village of Dunscore, approx 9 miles outside Dumfries. In keeping with the popular trend of secret or underground pop-up restaurants and tearooms, the exact address is kept secret. Once you’ve booked, the exact address and directions will be given to you.
I aim to deliver food that delights in a wonderful cosy setting in winter months and weather permitting out in the gardens throughout summer. I offer homemade boutique brunch, delicious lunch, beautifully baked and presented afternoon teas and five course dinner, you can rest assured no one ever goes home hungry!
My menu is changed for each event with different fancies and savouries.
Freshly baked scones with lashings of strawberry conserve and clotted cream, freshly baked cake, delightful finger sandwiches (no crusts!) with a variety of fillings, home baked savoury tarts, little cakes and fancies – cheesecakes, brownies, lemon fingers, shortbread’s – to name just a few.
A large selection of loose leaf teas including my own blends of deliciously refreshing therapeutic hemp teas served in individual pots for individual tastes. Cafetieres of fresh ground coffee. Teas are served with milk or lemon, coffee with milk or fresh cream. An unlimited supply of both is always available.
Chilled still mineral water is on every table and a small selection of cold drinks are available as an alternative to the hot drinks on offer.
My fabulous afternoon teas cost from just £18.50 per person, prices vary for different events, bespoke menus & private parties.
A 50% deposit is required on booking, if you need to cancel your booking please do so as soon as possible, I require 5 days notice for cancellations, deposits are refunded for any cancellations made before 5 days of the event you have booked. If your space is filled within the 5 days prior to the event I am also happy to refund your deposit, otherwise deposits are none refundable.
I only accept cash on the day.
Due to the nature of secret tearooms & supper clubs we plan, prepare and cook for all of our events ourselves, we are not open full time to the general public and our menu’s are set. Therefore it is with regret that dietary preferences, intolerance, food allergies & vegan diets cannot be catered for. We cannot cater for severe nut or egg allergies. We also don’t allow children under 12 years.
