Stopped here for a coffee before we want for a walk then stopped and had a nice bowl of soup and home made bread which was really nice after getting soaked.

Still open at weekends, it was a much needed mid afternoon stop. Scones with cream and jam were fantastic and heard the soup was good too! Lovely situation and seats outside if the weather is good. Bet it's busy in the summer!

We call in every time we are in the area and are never disappointed. Scones with jam and cream are delicious as are the selection of cakes. Hot chocolates for the children were amazing! Definitely worth a visit

We visited this tea room on two occasions on our weeks holiday in Glenlyon. On both visits we were delighted with the standard of food and drinks and with the excellent service. The fact that this place is extremely busy despite it's remote location speaks volumes. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it.

We stopped at the Glenlyon Post Office on advice from the owner of a house we rented in Glen Lyon for lunch. Soups VG and sandwiches also with salad and crisps. The ladies serving were hospitable and efficient. Generally a friendly and relaxing atmosphere and an excellent view from the benches outside to R. Lyon and down the glen. Lots... More

Looked on trip advisor for restaurant in aberfeldy... this place came up 3rd. It is quite a few miles out of aberfeldy. Gorgeous drive... and what a wonderful treat the Glenlyon tea room is. Soup was gorgeous. The cake was to die for and the scenery is breathtakingly. Staff are lovely.. Will definitely come again
