We had wanted to try the Barley Bree over New Year on previous visits to Crieff but this was the first time we managed to arrange it. Unfortunately we weren't offered to go into the lounge for drinks or to peruse the menu and were shown straight to our table even though we arrived about 30 minutes early. We were... More

Happy New Year! Sorry about table legs - our dodgy tables need a bit of tlc - and it is a bit challenging sometimes to accommodate larger parties in the space we have. Glad you enjoyed the food and hope to see you again. Hope the dancing was fun! More

Was a exactly a year ago since we dined here and 1 year on it's still as good. Food (esp the Xmas pudding) and service was fantastic.

Pleased we've managed to maintain standards! And the Christmas puddings were flying out the door this year. We must have posted out about 15 in addition to what we sold locally. Hope to see you again in about 11 months. Thank you More

Well this year we actually got there and regretted all the years we could have eaten there and didn't. It is fairly remote being in the middle of Muthill but the quality of food... More

We were in Crieff for a 40th party and decided that on the Friday night we would find a restaurant close by. I booked the Barley Bree after reading the reviews on Trip Advisor and I was not disappointed. The menu was varied and the food very tasty. The attention to detail, can put some of the bigger restaurants that... More

Nicely refurbished traditional stone coach house. Pleasant atmosphere throughout the hotel. Cosy room and bathroom well supplied. Excellent menu and good wine served by very attentive and friendly staff. Good advice from Alison, very chalenging nine hole golf course around the corner.

On a very wet saturday we took a drive to Muthill and came across Barley Bree, a restaurant with rooms. We had a beautiful lunch, very friendly and efficient staff, the menu had a good choice and the food was beautifully cooked and presented. Would definitely like to return for an evening dinner.

My Mum and i stayed here for 2 nights last weekend. I can find very little fault with the whole experience. The service was excellent throughout, really faultless, from the welcome, to the dinner and breakfast service. The room was lovely, very comfortable (VERY comfy bed!), quiet, warm, and well equipped. Breakfast both days was really good, very nice service... More

Thank you so much for your comments. Glad you enjoyed your stay. We do have a vegetarian menu and you should have been asked if you had dietary requirements at the time of booking. And sorry you would have liked a different menu for the second night but we do keep it short so that we can guarantee the quality... More

Excellent service right from booking to check out. Booked dinner with friends and an overnight stay. Easy to find in the village with ample parking. Small outdoor space with some seating for taking the air with a drink before dining or just for relaxing. Check in promptly and shown to room with services and facilities explained.
