Movers and shakers There’s a lot to do here at Crieff Hydro. So if you’re rushing from one activity to the next, you might want to grab a quick bite to eat on the way. Call into The Hub cafe and you’ll find a choice of light lunches, salads and snacks. Take your food away, or grab a seat and check out the sports channel. Or join us in the Victorian Winter Garden and Loggia; a great spot for morning coffee, light lunch, or afternoon tea and cream scones. Yes, the fast service means you won’t be kept waiting, but make sure you enjoy the panoramic views.

Cozy nesters Hot drinks and sofas at the Hub, comfy “snugs” in the Brasserie and homemade soup from the Winter Garden. Or maybe a Scottish Malt by the open fire at the Murraypark.
