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

We drove the length of Glen Lyon - what a beautiful place - and had a cream tea in this lovely café - shared with a little bird! It's a wonderful place to stop for refreshments, to take a walk and enjoy the views.

This lovely little tearoom was a welcome find in one of Scotland's longest and loveliest glens. Their delicious home made soups and cakes served by very friendly staff were enough to tempt us back for a 2nd visit later in the week.

This must be the most scenic place for tea I have ever visited. It is remote but surprisingly busy with hill walkers, bikers and motorists and everyone is tucking into lovely food. The soup is hearty and comes with big chunks of bread, the sandwiches are fresh and served with the lovely potato salad and the cakes are homemade and... More

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
