Visit the tearoom regularly as we have a holiday home in the Glen. Always guaranteed a warm welcome from Becky and her helpers and great to see how much it is appreciated by visitors to the area.

Come to Glen Lyon in Autumn in the late afternoon as the Sun is sinking and lighting up the autumn colours in the trees. A glorious sight…… Then have tea and cakes at the tearoom at Bridge of Balgie. There aren't too many other places in the Glen, but this Post Office/ Tea Room is very pleasant and the cakes... More

We stopped here on the way from Ben Lawers to Alberfaldy and it was a stop well worth making. We had soup and some incredible home made bread and my husband made the unfortunate choice to add a sandwich and was barely able to finish--all was great and the service was warm and friendly. Well worth a stop if you're... More

Is a little pricey but you get what you pay for, in this case that was fresh homemade food, pleasant service and wonderful scenery. Scones looked lush but was... More

Out of Aberfeldy, past the village of Dull, fourteen miles from the historic village of Fortingall down a tight single track road is a lovely respite from the riggers of the road. In the hamlet named Bridge of Balgie you'll find a small post office/gift shop/tea room. A few small tables in the front and a couple more in a... More

After a beautiful drive along the road to Glen Lyon we stopped at this adorable house which is actually a tea room, restaurant and shop. We were referred to this joint by Lonely Planet and were not disappointed. Not only are you overlooking the lush, green valley but you're also fed delicious food. I had the homemade pumpkin soup. It... More

We stopped here after driving through the picturesque road into glen Lyon. Stopped off at this little tea room and was very pleasantly surprised. Really nice cup of tea and the soup was some of the best I have tasted. Also provided a high chair for our 6 month old daughter so she could have a little snack too! Would... More
