We visited the Wee Bear twice whilst staying in Lintrathen. Beautiful homemade food, soup, bread and cakes. We ate vegetarian and vegan food and it was fantastic. The environment is lovely, service is second to none and dogs are welcomed as is everyone.

We arrived quite late so couldn't sample the food unfortunately, but the coffee, scones and cake were great and the doggie welcome was absolutely fantastic! Best way to end a day of walking in the Glen's with you paw-l 😂

Amazing cafe tucked away in the middle of nowhere. We were staying at the adjacent hotel, so had breakfast here, but the day menu and the cakes looked superb!
