Established in 2017, The Free Company is a Scottish multidisciplinary Design House based at the foot of the Pentland Hills, working across the fields of Art, Architecture, Food and Design. The founding ethos is based around the reinvigoration of forgotten rural communities and spaces, in an effort to rethink discarded economies and bring them into the present.


For six months of the year (April & May, July & August, November & December) we open the doors of our converted hayloft to the public and our seasonal restaurant welcomes guests to come and enjoy some of Scotland's finest produce, local and our own. We take great pride in operating a 'pay-what-you-think-its-worth' service and our easy going communal style dining has meant people young, middle aged or elderly enjoy a memorable evening on a farm outside Edinburgh.


Everything you see has been dreamt up by the team. From the steading conversion to our wood fired oven, we design and build all aspects of our ever evolving space.

Come and see us!
