The Schoolhouse at Ringford is situated beside the A75 some 5 miles west of CastleDouglas and 4 miles inland from Kirkcudbright this former school has been transformed into an all day eatery.

Welcome to our table.
In a Catering World full of ready to cook meals, synthetic desserts and water pumped cooked meats, where Artisan skills are scarce and not encouraged and out of season produce is tastelessly commonplace.... at The Schoolhouse we care about our food.

We are just as fussy when it comes to our suppliers, for their commitment to high standards is our and your guarantee.

We prepare and cook almost everything ourselves. Sometimes that means it just cannot appear in an instant.
Our coffee is always freshly brewed-never kept for longer than 20 minutes; we make our own cranberry sauce and our own hummus.

Caroline & David Lawrie have between them over 40 years experience in the food industry - both in retail delicatessens and bakery and also restaurants and sandwich bars. The Schoolhouse at Ringford are members of the Tourist Board's "Eat Scotland" scheme and in 2007 exceeded the standards criteria in 70% of the assessed categories. The inspector commented "If you find it difficult to find something to suit your tastes on this menu then I hang my hat up". Tasty soups. Lots of fresh salads, sandwiches, baguettes and pannini's, tummy warming chilli, vegetarian specials, Brodie's tea and coffee, Cream of Galloway ice cream and then our baking...

Extensive breakfast menu available till 11am, Full menu available all day plus daily "specials". Licensed.

We have a good knowledge of most dietary needs and will be pleased to offer help - and advice in general. All our soups are gluten free - if it sounds veggie, it is! Some of our cakes and desserts are gluten free(and all are carefully hand made). Diabetic jam and marmalade are available.
