I visited with my husband and friends for an early evening meal. The pub lounge itself is quite small with only around 6 tables but this only lends itself to the cosy atmosphere of this tradtional little pub with it's dark beams and roaring fire. A great place to be on a winter's night..or even a summer one in this dreich Scottish climate.
The young barman was extremely polite which is sadly not a given in todays society.
The food was well presented and portion size was good. The steak pie looked and smelled amazing although my battered haddock was a little greasy for my liking but still tasty.
Prices are on the higher side of average for pub grub but I would return again.
All members of my party agreed that this quaint little pub was a lovely place to visit.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Balgedie Toll Tavern, an old coaching inn has stood on this spot since 1534. It is a welcoming and comfortable country tavern which, like many others built at the time in Scotland, was situated at a road toll where travellers would break their journey and pay tolls before travelling on (the Tolls were abolished in 1872).Now much extended, the oldest part of the building (the toll house) is ...at the southern end. It has two restaurant seating areas, one upstairs and one downstairs in the main bar plus a small snug bar. The interior is traditional with low ceilings, oak beams, stone walls and open fire places, with wooden settles and works of art by a local painter. An extensive choice of meals and bar snacks are available 7 days per week, freshly prepared to order by an award winning chef and his team. A good selection of Real Ales, Malt Whiskies, Wines, freshly ground Italian coffees, and homebaking are also available. ... more less
