Just had dinner from festive menu and it was out of this world! Can't manage dessert, too full. Christmas started today - White Christmas at Pitlochry Festival Theatre followed by this fantastic meal tonight!

“Superb quality and value.”
Reviewed November 1, 2012

Had a wonderful meal. The choice was amazing but to also get such great food at a very reasonable price, was a very pleasant surprise. I have been fed up of restaurants providing basic food with little effort. Cargills clearly goes to great effort to use local produce and highly qualified Chefs. Thank you and well done!

“Way short of expectation”
Reviewed October 31, 2012

Dssapointed to submit feedback in contrast to previous reviews, personally found the restaurant to be lacking in "warmth" both in terms of environment and front of house team.

We both selected from the Bistro menu opting the chicken served with haggis and mashed potato and found the quality of food fell way short of our expectations,given other TA reviews.

Would have preferred to give this feedback directly to the team at Cargill's but no indications that it is was either sought or would have been valued, perhaps we were just unlucky on the day?

This is very disappointing, I'm so sorry we did not live up to expectations and I would be really grateful to you if you could email me to let me know when you were in? Any feedback we receive we act on, it is so much easier when we can locate when you were in and which staff were on etc.
I hope you will give us another chance and experience Cargill's as it should be.
