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 three months of the year (April, August and 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. We take great pride in operating a 'pay-what-you-think-its-worth' service and our laid back communal style dining has meant people young, middle aged or elderly enjoy a memorable evening on a farm outside Edinburgh. 

Design and Build

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 evolving space.

Come and see us!
