Locally Sourced

At the Refuge Café we source 80% of our food from local & national suppliers to showcase Scotland's finest food products from "field to fork".

Our café team have visited suppliers to see how the produce is reared or produced, from Aberdeenshire Highland Beef, to Cambus o' May Cheese factory, our local Hame Bakery to Caber Coffee's main workshop in Aberdeen, we pride ourselves on getting to know our produce and suppliers.

We also offer seasonal produce such as the famous "Barra Berries" of Oldmeldrum in the heart of Aberdeenshire, to a wide range of chutneys and jams from Peterhead's very own "Betty Bell's Preserves".

Moving to the national level we work closely with the teams at Fife Creamery and BID Food, who provide a range of products from the delicious Cobbs Cakes made in Drumnadrochit in Inverness-shire, to the tasty Maclean's Oat Cakes of Forres on the Moray Coast.

Our "Today's Special" board at times will include traditional Stovies, beetroot and oatcakes to Haggis, neeps and tatties, all made by McIntosh of Strathmore.
