Deciding on a late lunch we stopped off here. Doesn't particularly look impressive from the outside but inside..... Lovely food, friendly service and reasonable prices. And for cake lovers a nice array of home baked products!! My only query was as to why i recieved a slice of orange and watermelon on the side of my plate with my bacon... More

Had lunch in the Red Squirrel on a day trip to Crieff. Lovely comfortable armchairs to sit in and the artwork on sale makes for a really nice surroundings. The food was excellent as was the service. The staff were attentive without being intrusive, and we will definitely eat there again. Highly recommend for a light lunch.

Actually looked at places for lunch before going to Crieff and ended up going to neither as Red Squirrel was recommended to us by the shoe shop owner down the road. Nice cafe, restaurant gift shop combo setting. We were however lucky to have lovely weather and sat in the little garden to the rear. My mother had baked tattie... More

We were en route to Glasgow from Aberdeen for a concert, and were taking a wee detour to admire the countryside. Crieff is a very frequent stop for us, and being a rainy day we curtailed our walking in the Main Street a little, and opted for somewhere to have a snack lunch. We had seen the Red Squirrel Cafe...

Were looking for somewhere to have late lunch on way back from Comrie to Perth when we found this lovely little place. The staff were welcoming and helpful. There was room for babies pushchair at the table without getting in other customers way. The food was excellent and all freshly made to order. Would definitely come back.
