Dirleton is very fortunate, as a small village, to have two inns with restaurant facilities that are popular with locals and visitors alike. Other accommodation options range from a grand mansion to an excellent camping and caravan site. Eating out in and around Dirleton is a popular village pastime, and as well as the Dirleton Gallery which has a small cafe, there are numerous opportunities in the surrounding area for everything from coffee and cakes to evening meals.
