Finally some decent weather so we set off in the Morgan, top off, for day out. Perthshire has some stunning drives. So off to Aberfeldy, Fortingall then the scenic route through Bridge of Balgie. Lunch calls so into the tea room for some sustenance. A simple menu offering soups, sandwiches and superb cakes. The excellently filled sandwiches came with crisps,... More

Good service, friendly staff, delicious home made food and inexpensive. Two soups with bead, tea and cake £12 for two people, paid £9 for coffee and two shortbread biscuits at a local hotel!

After driving 10 miles down the lovely Glen Lyon valley this tea room provides a welcome break. They serve a good range of cakes, sandwiches and drinks. Friendly staff.

We had tea and scones, cream and jam and they were so good we arranged our walk the next day so it finished in time for us to come back. The second time we shared a scone and piece of carrot cake. Highly recommended.

Been visiting for many years and always like to return for a cup of tea and scone, this year another warm day and we were happy to be able to find a table in the shade. Busy little tea room and post office/local shop. Food very good. Beautiful location looking down Glen Lyon. Well worth a visit.

Whenever we are in Scotland on a motorcycle tour, we always seem to divert over the mountains from Dunkeld to Strath Carron via the Post Office tea rooms. What a fantastic tranquil location, where we saw red squirrels this time. It didn't distract us long as we were presented with what can only be described as one of the finest... More

We visited the tea room during our annual holiday to Kinloch Rannoch. We have been before but decided this year to walk from Rannoch (Carie walk) to Bridge of Balgie, which is about 8 miles each way and approx 6 hours of walking. Well worth it when you have the tea room as a mid way point. As usual, the... 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!
