Balgedie Toll Tavern
Ranked #4 of 10 Kinross B&B and Inns
Reviewed June 22, 2012

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.

My partner and I had dinner on a beautiful sunny evening and the atmosphere was superb! We ordered 'haggis bites' and 'balgedie smokie' for starters and they were delicious!!! Main course was 'chicken supreme' and 'haddock and chips' and once again excellent food! The girls serving us were really friendly and made us feel really welcome! Only downside is the location, you need to know where to go!
Definitely going back and bringing as many of our friends as possible!

Found this place by accident - the barman was very helpful and attentive - even offered a free taste of the ale so I could make a choice! Great to see a traditional pub atmosphere - just a plain pub with wooden beams - not overdecorated with twee stuff - no chrome in sight, no tv or thumping music just a welcoming fire and a good choice of REAL ALE! The food was excellent - the quality of the meat in the steak pie was a real surprise - delicious. Just wish I had eaten less through the day so I could have sampled more on the menu! Well done folks, a country pub as it should be.

Small 16th century inn that produces great food. Had steak pie that was one of the best I have ever tatsted along with boiled potatoes and a selection of delicious veg. The gravy in the pie was delicious and the meat melted in your mouth. Service was by a young man who was very friendly and professional. Old interior with beams along the ceiiling and down the walls - nice ambience. If you like beers has a range of differing brews from some smaller brewers. Definately a 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
