About The 3 Villages Cafe

Come and enjoy our amazing views, freshly-cooked food, and great coffee!

In 2005, the Arrochar and Tarbet Community Development Trust bought the Pit Stop Cafe and Takeaway, as a first step towards the creation of a Community Campus. The Three Villages Hall was subsequently built adjacent to the cafe and opened in 2010. 

The Trust's vision in buying the cafe was that it would provide local employment and training, as well as generating income to help support the hall and other community projects. 

In April 2010, the cafe was renamed the 3 Villages Cafe, in line with the name of the recently completed village hall. However, the takeaway arm of the cafe has retained the original name of the Pit Stop, and no doubt to locals it will always be the Pit Stop!

The cafe now also houses the local Post Office - a vital service for the local community.

The cafe has recently undergone a 'makeover' - check out the shiny new barista-style coffee machine :)

The café warmly welcomes locals and visitors, including families and the many bikers and divers who come to enjoy the area’s unrivalled scenery—both above and below the water! It employs local people and provides a friendly meeting place to enjoy a cup of coffee and a blether, as well as providing catering for events in the adjacent Hall. Check out the cafe's Facebook page for opening times.
