Gallery and Tearoom, featuring work by DS Mackie
The cellars are part of St Adrians which is a classic pan tiled seventeenth
century building. Used as storage over the years, a significant amount of
careful restoration was needed to create the current Gallery and Tearoom.
Original features have been revealed such as the flag stone floor and the
exposed stone walls (note that you can see an old small window on the wall facing the sea).
Most of the beams are original, those that have been replaced have been hand
made and distressed to match in with the old. The central beam is a flitch
beam (sandwich of metal and wood), this combines the strength of steel with
the appearance of natural wood. Prior to the renovation there was no central
support and you had to be careful when walking on the floor above !
