Craigies Farm Shop and Café reveals major redesign

Craigies Farm Shop, Deli & Cafe have unveiled a £200,000 refurbishment of their popular South Queensferry-based farm village

JOHN and Kirsteen Sinclair, owners of Craigies Farm Shop, Café & Deli, have revealed a major redesign and refit of the popular Queensferry-based farm village. 

The husband-and-wife team have invested £200,000 in modernising the café, deli and shop of the popular visitor destination to create a stylish, welcoming environment for its 300,000 annual visitors. 

Family-run Craigies Farm appointed hospitality design specialist Tim Wicken of Arrange Spaces to convert the interiors into a rustic country retreat with a modern feel.  

The new design connects the countryside through a mix of high-quality timber and bespoke joinery, combined with a palette of vibrant colours and natural finishes.

Agricultural elements such as barn doors and sliding window shutters have contrast with bright, luxurious fabrics. Light levels have been balanced with the addition of lamps to add warmth and atmosphere, while cosy corners and nooks offer more intimate and private seating.  

The café has been extended to incorporate a former meeting room, providing an additional flexible seating area that can be sectioned off by sliding reeded glass doors. Soft wall panelling buffers and balances noise levels whilst adding to the organic feel of the space. 

Craigies specialise in home-grown and locally-sourced food of provenance, with the café having space to seat 240. Visitors can enjoy seasonal farm-fresh breakfast, lunch and light meals with views overCraigies farmland and the surrounding South Queensferry countryside.  

Tim Wickens of Arrange Spaces commented: 

“We have worked with Craigies Farm to bring to life an ambitious flowing design scheme and a hospitality environment that works in harmony across three key spaces, connecting the space to the surrounding rural environment.” 

“The resulting design is consistent, colourful and organic and reflects high-quality of produce and experience on offer in the farm shop, cafe and wider farm business.” 

John Sinclair, founder and owner of Craigies, said: 

“The redesign and refit at Craigies Farm are part of our 10-year development plan and we are delighted to have now launched this exciting redesign. The new layout and design reflect our values and heritage while giving customers an improved, modern café and shopping experience.” 

“We are invested in offering quality across all areas of our business and are particularly pleased to reveal this vibrant redesign in difficult times, so our customers have a warm and welcoming environment in which to meet and be together. It is also a bright, airy and stylish place to work and our team love it!”
