Carsphairn's shop has been community owned since 1995. The building is looked after by a committee but the shop is run by tenants who operate their own business.
Lindsay and Paul have been our tenants for several years now and their business had gone from strength to strength. The premises was devastated in the village-wide flooding of 2015 but they fought back, winning the prestigious Scottish Food Awards Community Tearoom of the Year 2017 and Dumfries and Galloway Life Cafe of the Year Award in 2018!
Their expanded tearoom and tea garden draws customers from all over and monthly bistro nights continue to be popular - book your table as soon as you see them advertised!
The shop always has a good range of basic groceries and Lindsay can order items in for you, if you ask.
