Visited as a pit stop while walking in the area. Beautiful setting with a number of tables outside but pretty small inside so hope it's nice weather when you visit. Menu limited to a few sandwich choices and a couple of soups, plus scones, cakes, drinks etc. Super quick service produced sandwiches served with a small side salad, crisps and... More

Quick pleasant service. Sandwiches come with home made potato salad and crisps. Cakes home baked. View gorgeous. Glen Lyon is a great place to cycle or walk and the tea room which is also a shop and post office a perfect place to finish your day.

My friend Had a bowl of soup and I had the most delicious ( large ) portion of carrot cake. The service was excellent and the... More

Must qualify as one of the remotest tea rooms ever! What on earth do they do in the winter? But a welcome little place in the middle of nowhere. Great walks at the this end of the glen and this place is stunning, even by Scottish standards. We enjoyed tea and excellent sandwiches before embarking up the gorge walk to... More

Situated in the heart of Glen Lyon overlooking a magnificent salmon pool this tea room serves excellent 'home made' food and a great 'cuppa'. Lovely to sit outside on the terrace and enjoy the Glen with friendly service, a great dog and some wonderful photography on sale in the form of locally produced cards. Parking available but not generous. best... More

Noticed a recommendation of the tea room on the Walk Highland's website as a stop on the local circular forest walk - level of recommendation was absolutely justified. Having "bagged" 2 Munro's earlier in the day, as well as the Innerwick to Bridge of Balgie walk - this was a fantastic place for a relaxing pit stop before the drive... More

Our group had both soups of the day and absolutely loved them....then the cakes, pistachio almond is what I tried, yum! Had a great lunch there and the girl working was great and very friendly. Highly recommended if... More

We completed the Innerwick and Bridge of Balgie walk, which we found in the walking guidebook, 'Perthshire 40 Town and Country walks'. The Post Office/Tea Room is mentioned in the description, we decided to start and finish our walk from the Tea Room, as we were going to have tea and scones as a reward at the end of the... More

After reading some of the previous reviews I made my husband drive all the way over from Killin for coffee and cake. We were not disappointed. The carrot cake was nice and the scones were absolutely delicious - piled high with cream! A lovely atmosphere too sitting outside in the sun. Service was fast and friendly.
