Perfectly positioned between the Castle and the woodland car park, and open seasonally from May to October
Virginia, 10th Duchess of Roxburghe re-designed and refurbished the Courtyard Café, creating an enjoyable place to relax for a coffee or light lunch with family or larger groups. Formerly a stable block for the family's' polo ponies, the walls are covered in pictures of the equine residents from years gone by.
The Courtyard Café is open during our Summer Season and offers a delicious Take-Away style Menu, with a selection light lunch options. From homemade soup to freshly prepared sandwiches and a special selection of cakes and traybakes made in the Floors Castle Kitchen. Pop in for a bite to eat after exploring the Castle or taking a wonder around the grounds. There is ample indoor seating here if you need to shelter from the elements. Outdoor seating is also available together with benches with views over the River Tweed to soak up the beautiful scenery.
Our indoor and outdoor seating areas at the Courtyard Café are both dog friendly with water bowls, so dogs needn’t be shut in the car. Dogs on leads are very welcome throughout the Grounds, Gardens and both our Giftshops (no dogs inside the Castle please).
There is also a large grassy picnic area situated very close to the Courtyard Café with benches for you to enjoy while the children run around!
Please use our recycling facilities here and help us as we try and do our bit for the environment.

We are always delighted to welcome group bookings and an area within the Courtyard Café can be reserved for larger parties. Outside the open season, the Courtyard Café can be booked for private events. Please contact us to discuss your requirements. Our team will be happy to assist.
