I felt I would like to write another review. Steak Pie High Tea this time, yummeeeeee. Scone and cakes to follow all beautifully home made. The manager and staff were their usual cheerful, friendly, chatty selves. If you are in the area this restaurant gives VALUE for money with a capital V. Thanks again.

We were on a long drive from Inverness back to N Wales and found this purely by chance. The outside looked welcoming even on a wet and windy day. The staff in the food and other shops in the building were very friendly. Great range of gifts/food on sale and the restaurant was cosy, busy. Catherine our waitress was friendly... More

We stopped here for some lunch on our way to Pitlochry, there were six adults in the party and nobody had any complaints about the food or the homemade cakes they were all lovely. The service was excellent my only gripe is the price of soft drinks but that's the same wherever you go. I would definitely stop here again... More

I went with a small child and friends with children. Despite the fact that I think the restaurant staff may have been slightly inexperienced, (i.e.: we had to get up multiple times for menus, cutlery, straws, etc - which was slightly frustrating to say the least) when the food arrived, (on time) it was cooked to order, perfectly, and was...

Dear Teaney-Clan, I am sorry to read your review on our home baking here at the Perthshire Visitor Centre. I do wish you had spoken to a member of staff whilst you were with us, and we would have been able to introduce you to our resident baker. She works full time in the kitchen producing our wonderful home baking... More

We have been calling in at the Centre for more than 20 years now on our trips north. The food is always excellent and it is a joy to meet staff who have worked there for all this time. It is well worth leaving the busy road to spend time enjoying a good meal and browsing in the shop area.... More

My wife, mother in law and myself had breakfast here this morning. We caught them early before they actually serve but they were more than welcoming. Everyone was so friendly and accommodating. They just couldn't do enough for us or be nicer. The breakfasts were delicious and the presentation was as good as i've encountered seen. Perfect!, we'll be back

Stopped here to grab a drink & use the facilities on the way up to Inverness just after it opened at 8am. 65p for a bottle of water! (I'm used to £1.50 in the M6 services) and friendly chat on the way in and out from all the staff. It's amazing how good an impression they left in such a... More

Since our first visit my wife and I have become regular clients at this excellent eatery. The dining-room staff could not be more helpful, headed up by the managers Helen and Jackson who always have a welcoming smile and a "couthiness" that can't be learned in college. The boss, Calum, is always at hand and ensures that this facility is... More
