We went for a birthday lunch. We were made very welcome on arrival and attention had been given to our request for seating. The staff were extremely kind and helpful as well as knowledgeable about the dishes. The menu and wine list covered all tastes and the presentation of the food was excellent. We enjoyed every minute. Fabulous!!!!

We started going to Cargill's when my parents got a caravan near Blairgowrie. We first popped in, just for some tea and a scone and found the place so welcoming, with a lovely, relaxed atmosphere that we have returned again and again! They have a varied menu meaning you can have a light snack or a full meal and the... More

Thank you, it was lovely to see you both again and I am really pleased you enjoyed your visit.

We visited Cargill's several times with our family and grandchildren and they all loved it. Service was excellent. Please, bring some time along as everything is freshly prepared. It is definitely worth the wait. Interesting wall decor giving some historical background to the location. Great food whatever you order.
