We visit Scotland regularly and always pop in to the Smokery. Unfortunately our last visit for coffee and a cake was a let down.
We had to wait ages to be served; I could understand this if they were busy, but they weren’t. We had to ask for them to take our order, ask for a coffee refill and the overall impression was not good.
The gift shop, whilst pricey, has a good selection of products, and quirky stuff, to make you want to return.

I would advise anybody who doesnt know the area to slow down when you think you are close to the Teviot Smokery as there are no advance signs before you reach the entrance. It is a lovely garden centre with a big pond of koi carp and orfe fish along with landscape gardens and a river walk. Something not many garden centres have. It is well worth a visit, even if you dont have a meal (which looked really good with what people were eating) the cappaccino we had were about the best ever. There is a nice outside area for sitting and all in all a lovely place to go, with very helpful and friendly staff. Will definetly return.

Lovely garden centre however the water gardens were very disappointing and the fact that we couldn’t see an actual smokery of the fish being cooked was a massive let down
