Visited recently as a group of friends (9) and were allocated a suitable table in a corner the other side of the fireplace so we were out of the way from most other tables as we were occasionally noisey - sorry to those affected.

We love this restaurant! We have been many times, either as a couple, or with family and once as part of a private party. Fantastic food and wine, although not the cheapest of places, worth every penny.

We have dined at Barley Bree on a number of occasions now and each time we have enjoyed fantastic food and service. The menu varies with the seasons and the food is always full of flavour and beautifully presented. Dinner with friends in June was a wonderful experience, enjoyed by all. Highly recommended.

We arrived on a Saturday lunchtime, on our way home from Glencoe. We were warmly greeted and shown to a table. The menu is small but creative, seasonal and caters for all palates. The food was sensational, seasoned well, with balanced flavours on every plate, whilst cooked to absolute perfection! Presentation was playful but not pretentious. The service was some... More

I absolutely love this place - great food, great service. I have a fussy vegetarian wife, and the Barley Bree chefs were so accomodating. We always go there when we stay at Gleneagles as an alternative to their restaurants - 20 mins away in a taxi ( £20 each way )

I dined here with my family on Saturday evening. From start to finish our experience was fantastic, although we did have a rather embarrassing time with the card machine - entirely our own fault! Next time we will make sure we remember our pin. The food was superb. Our starters were the perfect size and the duck terrine was delicious.... More

This is a lovely restaurant, the decor just to my taste. The service was friendly and helpful. Although I was surprised that despite being the only two in initially that the next table was filled right beside us with the next diners who arrived. There were plenty other available tables to allow us a little more privacy. The food was... More

another visit to Barley Bree and another good experience. good food and wine and grandaughter well looked after by the attentive staff. we go for special occasions as its a little more expensive than a pub/hotel sunday roast , but the quality of the food is high and worth it.

I often review places I especially like but have never written more than one for the same place. Having eaten at Barley Bree three times, I must say the exquisite presentation and wonderfully thought out and delicious dishes have impressed us again. Slightly unusual ingredients, such as crispy kombu and touches like homemade bread make all the difference. One of... More
