a real gem of a find in a spectacular Glen, and well worth the drive up! A lovely warm welcome accompanied by a great range of goodies, and a well stocked wee shop. You MUST try the Guiness Cake, you won't regret it. A small post office lets you post some cards once you stop for a while and just... More

Worth stopping for the scenery alone but added to that is a warm and welcoming tea room. The food is wonderful, great sandwiches homemade soup and cakes. Staff delightful and incredibly good value. A regular stop when I am in the area and can't be recommended highly enough.

Visited with friends. The location is stunning with a wonderful view down glenlyon. Easy parking. Had soup, and scone with cream and jam. The soup was thick and tasty and served with a nice wad of crusty bread. The fruit scone was one of the best I remember having. And the cream was real fresh whipped cream and not canned.... More

Always stop by here when in the area, really lovely varied menu including several home made soups, lovely sandwiches with imaginative fillings. Great range of homemade cakes. If you are looking to fish for Salmon or Trout on the Glen Lyon this is where you obtain your licence. Glen Lyon Tea Rooms is a place must NEVER drive past without... More

Had a lovely lunch here, sitting outside in the sunshine looking at the wonderful view. Limited choice for lunch (soup, sandwiches etc) but very well done and cakes were delicious! Friendly and relaxed cafe and would definitely recommend a visit.

SO happy this little place is still on the go - an absolute delight in an area full of superlatives. The lemon and raspberry sponge I had was the bets I've tasted(and I'm hard to please, homemade-cake wise.But there stuff is truly home-made.) Sitting outside with a cup of tea, looking over the lawn and the river amidst peaceful, off-the... More

We stopped here for lunch on our tour around Loch Tay and the surrounding area. What a pretty place! Friendly, helpful staff. The food was tasty and good value - as were the cakes (delicious)!

A gem in the glen. Driving through this beautiful, atmospheric glen, we chanced upon this super little tearoom. Stopped and ordered hot chocolates. They turned out to be the most delicious HC's we had had in a long long time. Friendly and efficient service, a beautiful place to stop off.

This was the first time I had been here but my partner had been before. He didn't tell me about it, so it was a really quirky surpise to find this place virtually in the middle of nowhere. It doubles up as a general store, post office and tea room, although the bench-like tables are outside, there being no room... More

Superb tea room in the wilds of highland Perthshire. Well worth the 60 mile trip from Perth. Scones piled high with proper cream - wonderful!
