Surrounded by stunning countryside, just 10 miles from the centre of Stirling, you'll find The Woodhouse. A popular lunch and coffee spot, with a fantastic farm shop offering cheese, meats and other foodie delights!
WORKING WITH NATURE
Built in 2012 by the Lamb family, The Woodhouse has evolved over the past decade from a small coffee shop into a bustling café, farm shop, butchers and lifestyle boutique employing 20 local staff.
Situated near Kippen on the Carse of Stirling, the business has remained true to its original sustainable goals. Only recyclable packaging is used and oak trees from the site were used to make the café’s benches, counters and tables. The building is fuelled by Biomass and solar power, with electric vehicle charging stations on site for staff and customer use.
Now run by hospitality expert Sarah Wilkinson, the business has branched out to include special evening events such as its unmissable BBQ nights with the Christie Quartet.
ORIGINAL & BEST
Just as customers have remained loyal so have the staff, many of whom have stayed with The Woodhouse throughout its almost decade long evolution.
Managers Chris Law and Pip Mackay will be familiar faces to local coffee and cake lovers.
Sarah said: “Chris makes THE best coffee. We’re so lucky to have him and Pip running the show.
“The team are constantly innovating and looking for ways to make our customers smile.
“But you’ll always find old favourites on the menu such as our signature dish, The Woodhouse cheese soufflé !”
You’ll find some of Central Scotland’s finest produce in The Woodhouse farm shop, including Fallen Brewery Beer, Monument Aparies Honey, Strathearn cheese, bread from the Bavarian Bakehouse and The Woodhouse secret recipe dressing made on site by Jules (the café’s longest serving employee).
Sarah said: “During lockdown we started doing local deliveries, making sure our loyal clientele could still get their hands on some of their favourite local products.
“We’ve also started doing more takeaway orders and are delighted to feature in the Forth Valley Food and Drink food trail.”
As well as foodie delights, you’ll discover a great range of artisan products and art on sale throughout the shop and café.
