Balquhidder Restaurants

I'm always being asked "What are the best Balquhidder restaurants?"

I am not a food guide critic so I shall not be rating the restaurants and eating places merely giving a listing entry on the site for those who wish to be included.

I shall from time to time add to the list and may even make comments, but that is all. This page on eating out gives an overview of places to eat in the area.

For ease of use I've divided it up into types and I will be adding to the list as I review the various Balquhidder restaurants, cafes and takeaways in and around the town.

    • Comments: A charming Balquhidder restaurant, always with a warm welcome. The honesty of the cooking is frequently remarked upon. Dinner is a four course affair, possibly starting with a bowl of Jerusalem artichoke and rosemary soup, ora parcel of Scottish smoked salmon with smoked haddock, free range egg and wild rice. The menu illustrates a highly intelligent use of indigenous ingredients and offers food of originality and great appeal without resorting to the likes of "fusion" cuisine.
