We had wonderful Sunday Lunch here,the menu was short but had seasonal dishes which suited our party, The dishes were beautifully presented and garnished with fresh flowers and herbs. Service was relaxed but friendly. This restaurant deserves more accolades.

The lunchtime menu consisted of many... More

Not cheap. But certainly one of Scotland's best restaurants. Small portion size but beautifully presented. Everything on the plate compliments.

We had lunch at The Roost today with our friends who had been before. Great menu. Every dish that we had was superb. I would happily have gone through the menu again, and again, and again.......... Very friendly atmosphere. Our hosts made it feel like we were special guests in their home. We will be back. Sorry Arnie......

My husband and I have eaten out at many places and quite a few fine dining ones too. We had been meaning to come here for some time and last minute managed to get a booking last weekend. We knew from friends that it was quaint and nice food, but we had the most fantastic dining experience! From the second... More

We were staying just outside Perth and booked in for Sunday lunch after seeing the superb trip advisor reviews. We were not disappointed. All 4 of our party thoroughly enjoyed an amazing lunch. The food was beautifully presented and tasted fantastic. I also have a gluten allergy which posed no problem (I did pre advise the restaurant) with everything freshly... More

Found this place by accident. What a find! Tucked away in a back street, follow the signs. Different menu. Fabulous selection of different tastes. Great service. Excellent value for money in super surroundings. You will not be disappointed if you enjoy fine dinning. Can't wait for our next visit, if you are in the area it's a must.

We had an excellent meal, a varied seasonal menu which made choosing difficult, too many good things!. It was served in a bright and airy room by a pleasant and well trained staff. This was our first visit and certainly will not be our last.

First visit to the Roost today despite having intended to go for years. We weren't disappointed. Well balanced radicchio and goat's curd salad to start followed by Arctic char served with pommes dauphine and a seafood sauce. Pudding was generous and excellent. Service was friendly and great. Fantastic value for a Sunday lunch at this level.

Tim & Anna Dover work together at the restaurant, Anna is in charge of table service and Tim exercises his skills as Head Chef in the kitchen, and in his words..."My wife and I opened the Roost Restaurant in the village of Kintillo near Bridge of Earn, just outside Perth, in the summer of 2008. Five years on the restaurant is firmly established in the area and we are known for our extensive use of Scottish ingredients, which I prepare in the classical French style that I have learnt in kitchens at home and abroad throughout my career.We are proud of the strong relationships we have developed with Scottish food and drink suppliers and always produce a locally sourced, sustainable and seasonal menu.Our dedication doesn't end in the kitchen as we enjoy fishing and foraging for our own ingredients - including wild garlic, alexanders and chanterelles - many of which appear on the menus throughout the year.But nothing is more sustainable than our new kitchen garden that features vegetables and herbs used in the restaurant. Throughout the summer months we are able to use our own supply of herbs, salads and vegetables such as potatoes, chard, baby carrots, beetroots, leeks, broad beans and purple sprouting broccoli while flowers are also grown for the restaurant."
