Superb tea room in the wilds of highland Perthshire. Well worth the 60 mile trip from Perth. Scones piled high with proper cream - wonderful!

This tea room is a must !

You have to visit this tea roo, it's also the village post office and shop. Its location is stunning, the home soup was so welcome on a cold day. We even met up with the local shepherds who had come off the mountain for lunch, it was so like stepping back in time.

The drive up Glenlyon is a delight and if you don't stop at this tearoom you'll have missed a treat ad will end up hungry as there is nowhere else. It is definitely worth parking up and enjoying the views and some delicious home made soup and perhaps a lovely scone too. It is very busy on a fine day... More

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

Found this place by accident more years ago then I care to remember but try and go at least once a year. Normally we would cycle there and stop for soup or a sandwich or a scone with jam and cream and sometimes for all three. Try and cycle passed Ben Lawyers after eating all that. Its a gem of... More

What a great place, great service and good wholesome food, friendly staff. Plenty seating outside but not a lot of seating inside. If in Glen Lyon you should not by pass this place

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
