Buchanan Food

Buchanan is a lively bistro housed in Woodend Barn at Banchory. The gently sloping building, with its wooden panels and large windows, is a relaxing spot in which to enjoy an afternoon tea while the sun streams through the glass, warming the bistro. During the summer months, the best dining spot is outside on the terrace however, where al fresco dining can be enjoyed for as long as the weather stays fair. Buchanan Bistro is open from 9am every day, serving a selection of cakes, bakes and drinks. When lunchtime rolls around, tasting plates, platters and light meals are available. During the evenings, a dinner and pre-concert menu is packed with inventive fare, with the latest arrival set at 7.30pm Tuesday to Thursday and 8pm on Friday and Saturday. In the mornings, the bistro is filled with the scent of freshly-brewed coffee and newly-baked bread. It’s not just bread that’s made on the premises though – Buchanan Bistro also brews its own beer. Food boards are available loaded with Loch Fyne smoked salmon, gravadlax, smoked mussels and seaweed salsa. Children’s boards with simpler fare are also available alongside thick organic soup served with sourdough bread. Afterwards, a range of sweet treats – all made on site of course – includes almond and pistachio tart and frozen damson parfait.

Fabulous homemade food, with a wealth of choice and flavours. Service was fantastic! Will definitely be back.

We were passing on route to the craft village and saw the sign near to a supermarket for this restaurant/Cafe and decided to pop in for a coffee. Good move. Very comfortable surroundings, great cakes and good coffee. A good selection of Suki teas too. There's a craft showroom and a theatre. Great place to stop in.
