Welcome to Birsay Bay Tearoom

Birsay Bay Tearoom is situated on the northerly tip of Orkney mainland and has panoramic views overlooking the Brough of Birsay and towards Marwick Head.

A modern tearoom serving light lunches and snacks throughout the day. We also serve delicious home bakes, baked on the premises each day and there’s something for everyone!

Our menu has been designed to make the most of the seasonal fresh local produce and all our food is prepared and cooked fresh each day.

Where are we?

Take the turning to the Birsay village, going past the majestic Earl's Palace on your left, the historic St Magnus Church on your right, over the old stone bridge and keep going for around a quarter of a mile. The Tearoom is located at the end of the road, tucked in behind the greenhouses of Birsay Tomatoes. Look out for and follow our signs!



from 12.00pm - 4.00pm

Friday - Sunday

from 10.30am - 4.00pm

Due to staffing issues opening hours may be subject to change at short notice, along with a smaller team we are also running with a reduced menu.

We are hoping to resume normal service towards mid May.

Thanks for bearing with us.


From April we will be bringing back in some tables to increase the table numbers, half of the tables will be bookable with the remainder available for "walk-ins". Booking ahead is recommended, using www.dishcult.com

Our coffee is freshly ground each day, and the continental roast of the beans will leave a lasting delicious taste, that may lead to wanting more!

Our cakes are freshly baked each day on the premises, with a wide range to choose from – what will take your fancy…?

We have an extensive selection of teas, exclusively chosen from THE TEA SHED. Old fashioned loose tea within a silky pyramid teabag.
