Spent a couple of nights here recently and you really cannot fault the place. Nice room if a little small as you'd expect but wanting for nothing. Really good food served by really pleasant and helpful staff. The only downside is the village itself which is a bit dour and has little to offer, shame the restaurant isn't in a... More

We were recommended to come here by friends and popped in for a midweek lunch. The restaurant is beautifully appointed, and is immediately stunning. The staff are really friendly and helpful, and the menu, although relatively short, is comprehensive. The food was simply wonderful in both presentation and taste. This is an exceptional place and well worth a visit.

This time we were a group of six celebrating my birthday. As before when it was just two of us, everything was of the highest quality. Simply a superb restaurant. A perfect example of 'keep it simple and get it right' working every time

Great family meal in welcoming environment. Food was special with elements for all senses. Onion soup with crunchy crouton, beautiful beef with surprises, terrific tarte tatin. Wonderful food served with simplicity but perfectly.

This is a gem in a quiet village that could become a destination restaurant, such is the quality of the food and the pleasantness of the staff. To sit beside a log fire enjoying perfectly cooked pigeon breast is one of life's joys and I hope to return here often

In search of somewhere to enjoy fine food and wine, we booked ourselves a night at Barley Bree in Muthill - and were not disappointed. While the outside of the building is not as welcoming as some venues, once we stepped through the door into the restaurant, this all changed. Greeted by friendly staff and shown to our room, we...

We turned up at 1.30 p.m. today wondering if we'd be able to have lunch as we had no reservation. Had not heard about this restaurant before but very glad we visited it. REally liked the cosiness of the place and the log burning stove in the middle of the restaurant. Service was professional, quick and the staff friendly. The... More

The website states "Alison and Fabrice believe that everyone should be able to enjoy a special dinner in Barley Bree and welcome vegetarians and guests with food allergies and intolerances. Everything on the menu is prepared to order so can be tweaked and fine tuned as required. All they ask for is a bit of warning." Well, we took them... More

We stayed overnight as we'd travelled rom Aberdeen to try the restaurant. Our room was fine though again, on the cool side unless we had the radiator full pelt all the time. The TV was so small that it was very hard to see from the bed (the sofa was under the TV facing away). The bathroom was freezing and... More

I spent two nights at Barley Bree at the end of January to celebrate a birthday with my family. Alison, Fabrice and the team could not have done more to make this a birthday to remember. From the incredible food and wine to the log fires in the dining room and lounge it was all just perfect. Thank you, again... More
