Amazing lunch

my husband and I had lunch here and it was amazing. Menu not too big, I think just right with a variety of dishes to choose from. Quality of food was exceptional. Staff very welcoming and friendly. Looking forward to visiting for dinner later in the year

very good food, but I felt it a little overpriced for a cottage, in a village out of town, with no outlook. Where we were sitting felt waitresses could hear our conversation. Could not fault food, but lacked atmosphere.

Another excellent dinner at The Roost. Relatively small menu with a variety of interesting dishes. Service good and attentive. Price is the most expensive in Perth.

I booked in a family gathering, for my Aunt's (our daughter's Great Aunt) surprise 90th Birthday dinner. Being a favourite Aunt of our family, 10 of us sat down for dinner. Really, we have no words adequate enough to convey how good the evening was from arrival to departure. The staff were so attentive on the night, and during the... More

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
