Another Tilly Tearoom is Scotland’s Most Wanted Café
THE branch-out venture of a Tillicoultry café has last week scooped an accolade. Another Tilly Tearoom, in nearby Dunblane, won in the central region at the Scottish Café Awards before going on the clinch the Customer’s Most Wanted Café in Scotland for 2018. The original Clacks Tilly Tearoom also made the finals in the Most Welcoming Café category and staff from both ventures, under boss Nora Gilfillan, enjoyed a glitzy awards ceremony at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Glasgow. They even got a shout-out from Judy Murray on social media with Nora, who was delighted and surprised, adding: “Customers are loyal to both cafés and we would like to thank everybody who nominated us for these awards. “It means a lot that our customers took the time to do that and it is our friendly customers who make the tearooms so nice to work in.” The Dunblane tearoom opened in 2015, following in the footsteps of the business in the Hillfoots. Staff work closely together and across the two venues with the same menu and decorative theme – they are all about creating a friendly, welcoming and caring atmosphere, serving delicious food and brews with a smile.
