Pinecroft’s owners Brenda and Paul Smith and children, Chad and Sarah continue a family tradition of supplying Elgin County with not only quality handmade pottery, but unsurpassed country fare in their unique log tea room.
The peaceful serenity of Pinecroft carries you back to a less hurried time and the scent of the forest, the sounds of the birds and the calm of the waterfalls are food for the soul. Paul makes his legendary fresh bread and rolls each morning and Chad and Sarah oversee the day to day operation of the kitchen.
The tearoom serves quality country fare that is fresh, bountiful and tantalizingly presented with the artists’ touch. Handmade mugs, plates and bowls are featured in the tearoom.
Produce and meat are sourced locally at neighbouring farms, markets and butchers to present in soups, salads, entrees and desserts. Seasonal specials feature local asparagus, strawberries, melons, squash and pumpkins....one of fall’s most popular soups is Pinecroft’s Pumpkin Pear and in the spring, Asparagus pie served with fresh rhubarb crisp for dessert!
After lunch, choose a truly Canadian souvenir from the gift shop and then take a stroll across the pond to the studio and see where the pottery is made.
