Wonderful Sunday lunch with our children today. Sea trout fishcake and soup to start followed by roast rib of beef with potatoes and seasonal veg. Orange Posset and dark plum tart tatin to finish. Every course was absolutely delicious and all plates were scraped clean. A snip too at £25.95 for 3 courses. Service was excellent also. Would highly recommend... More

The view from outside of the restaurant does not prepare you for the delights inside! Their menu might be restrictive but each course we chose last night was excellent in its quality of produce, presentation and above all taste! We opted for the Partridge and Scollops for our staters. Both were beautifully cooked and faultless. For the mains we chose... More

We have visited the roost before but haven't been for a while as it's about an hour from our house and we like a drink so can't drive often. We came here for my mums 60th lunch and the staff were so helpful and friendly with organising things like the cake etc. It's a small restaurant but it doesn't feel... More

The lunchtime menu consisted of many... More

Not cheap. But certainly one of Scotland's best restaurants. Small portion size but beautifully presented. Everything on the plate compliments.

We had lunch at The Roost today with our friends who had been before. Great menu. Every dish that we had was superb. I would happily have gone through the menu again, and again, and again.......... Very friendly atmosphere. Our hosts made it feel like we were special guests in their home. We will be back. Sorry Arnie......

Tim & Anna Dover work together at the restaurant, Anna is in charge of table service and Tim exercises his skills as Head Chef in the kitchen, and in his words..."My wife and I opened the Roost Restaurant in the village of Kintillo near Bridge of Earn, just outside Perth, in the summer of 2008. Five years on the restaurant is firmly established in the area and we are known for our extensive use of Scottish ingredients, which I prepare in the classical French style that I have learnt in kitchens at home and abroad throughout my career.We are proud of the strong relationships we have developed with Scottish food and drink suppliers and always produce a locally sourced, sustainable and seasonal menu.Our dedication doesn't end in the kitchen as we enjoy fishing and foraging for our own ingredients - including wild garlic, alexanders and chanterelles - many of which appear on the menus throughout the year.But nothing is more sustainable than our new kitchen garden that features vegetables and herbs used in the restaurant. Throughout the summer months we are able to use our own supply of herbs, salads and vegetables such as potatoes, chard, baby carrots, beetroots, leeks, broad beans and purple sprouting broccoli while flowers are also grown for the restaurant."
