Potarch Café and Restaurant

Potarch Café & Restaurant is located next to Potarch Lodge, the Café & Restaurant has a relaxed, family-friendly atmosphere. We aim to consistently offer a wholesome menu using local, fresh and seasonal produce. During the summer, relax on our decking area and enjoy your meal with a glass of wine or locally brewed ale, while looking out over Potarch Green and across the fields to the River Dee.  For our younger customers we also have a large children's playarea which includes a sand pit and wendy house.

Ballogie Estate MTB


Potarch Café and Restaurant is close to the River Dee and a perfect location for enjoying outdoor activities on the estate, including our beautiful woodland walks or organised fishing outings and field sports events. Potarch is also one of the hubs on the Deeside Way, which stretches 41 miles from Aberdeen to Ballater, thus making it the perfect rest stop for cyclists and walkers. Within the grounds of the Café and Restaurant we will also have a well-equipped children’s play area.
