The home made pancakes, scones and shortbread were fantastic. Lovely coffee, wide selection including decaff. The dinner menu looked good, so maybe next time go back for... More

Re visited Cargill's recently and enjoyed just as much as last visit. The menu has such a great amount of choice and that's before even reaching the specials black board. This time I chose the smoked salmon tart followed by the Arbroath haddock and chips. My husband went for the Shetland mussels and then whole lemon sole. It was all... More

Another great visit. Many thanks to all staff for such friendly service, you always make us feel so welcome. We enjoyed a most delicious meal of local grouse for me and Arbroath haddock and homemade chips for my husband. Thankfully we are able to get smaller portions!

Down by the river Ericht in Blairgowrie. Food was fine but not exciting. Good parking. Selection of wine average, staff nice, decor clean and country style. Popular for many locals which says a lot.

Popped in for a coffee on a wet Sunday afternoon and had the best shortbread (straight from the oven!) ever. Liked it so much we came back for dinner. Excellent food and friendly staff on both visits. Will go again next time we are in Blairgowrie.

We went here for a meal last night. Very busy, but the service and food were spot on. We had mussels and cheese souffle followed by fillet steak and cod which was all lovely. Would recommend to all.
