We have a gathering of friends in the Roost each year and every time we go it is better than before. The food is delicious and inventive. I had the scallops followed by Osso Bucco. Both dishes were cooked to perfection with surprising little tastes and additions lifting each to a very high level. We have eaten in several Michelin... More

My husband and I visited the roost for the first time and it was an excellent experience from start to finish. The table flowers and settings were simple and elegant, the amuse bouche consisted of a sweet potato soup with homemade cheese straws and was a lovely start to our meal. My scallops were fresh and my husband's vegetarian starter... More

This is our second time at The Roost. Excellent standard of cooking , seasonal choices with well thought out menu. I had the warm pigeon salad with cherries , followed by the duck with mustard mash. Very popular with locals from Perth and Kinross and deservedly so.

We visited here in the summer 2014 and booked a table for Christmas before we got to dessert. Very friendly, helpful service and the interior is stylishly muted and classy. There are probably enough tables /seats for 20 or so at a time which gives a more intimate feel. The starters are brilliant, have tried their scallops and the foie... More
