Wonderful cakes in a glorious setting!

We stopped for tea/coffee and cake, after reading reveiws. We were not disappointed. We sat outside with the Swallow parent dashing in and out feeding their babies. The Chaffinches flitting about and one very cautious at first Pied Wagtail. The cake was to die for. I had the raspberry and lemon... read more

We'd been looking forward to visiting after reading so many great reviews and we were not disappointed when we visited today! The tea room is in the most beautiful setting, stunning scenery and river running by. My parents had the yummy onion, leek and cider soup with chunks of bread, our boys had sandwiches as did my husband and I.... More

you get a good welcome, home cooked food and great views. I have stopped here on a car journey and mid cycle - always welcome. All food is home cooked - try some of the home baking.

We popped in here during an afternoon drive up Glen Lyon. It was a miserable day with rain and most and we wanted something to warm us up. A huge bowl of onion, leek and cider soup hit the mark! Highly recommended.

We've had lunch here a number of times over the past 5 years and haven't been disappointed yet. The staff (2) are very pleasant and helpful. The soups are worth writing home about. Today we had sweet potato and bell pepper, served with 2 chunks of home made bread. Accompanied by really nice cheese and pickle and salad sandwiches,served with... More

We hadn't heard about this place, just came across it by accident on a drive. Thought it was a good idea to stop for a cup of tea but thought the cakes might not be up to much in such an out of the way place. Completely wrong! The fruit scone, jam & cream was superb & my husband really... More

The Tea Room is at the Post Office/Shop at Bridge of Balgie in Glen Lyon, What a magic little place offering the traveller a resting place serving Tea, Coffee, Soup, Homemade Cakes and Scones. Ladies long may it continue.

This is the perfect place to stop for lunch or tea in breathtaking Glen Lyon. The soup and sandwiches, cakes and cream teas are homemade and delicious and the portions more than generous! It's in just the right place if you're taking a trip up Glen Lyon and I would definitely recommend you don't miss it!

We've been visiting Aberfeldy for 16 years and always make the scenic drive up Glen Lyon. This is partly to visit the Post Office/Tea Room. What a location? Seating both inside and out. Not pretentious but good honest home cooking. Soup, sandwiches and cakes------ all home made. Always memorable.

A second trip to Killin meant a second trip to Glen Lyon Tea Room, also known as the Glen Lyon Post Office. The cream tea is delicious, and the woodland setting is superb. As we were leaving, a parade of old tractors motored down the narrow single-track road for a rendezvous at the Tea Room. Everyone seemed to be having... More
