The Royal Burgh of Haddington is a pretty market town which was built in the 12th Century and sits proudly in the centre of East Lothian. Here you will find an excellent selection of grocers, wine shops, florists and butchers sitting alongside charming gift, clothes shops and craft galleries. Relax and watch the world go by in one of the many cafes, delicatessens or tea rooms in the town including Diggory’s or the Peter Potter Gallery with idyllic views over the River Tyne.
For something a little more substantial The Golf Tavern has an excellent reputation for fresh food and friendly service. Freshly picked vegetable boxes, including fruit and eggs can also be delivered straight to your door by Phantassie Organics, or the Knowes Farm Shop in the village of East Linton offers a huge selection of home-grown and home-made goodies including locally reared quality meats and game, delicious pates, soups, jams and chutneys as well as local crab, lobster and langoustines. Head to Haddington farmers’ market on the last Saturday of every month for a friendly atmosphere and a tempting selection of home produced specialities.
