On the tourist route to Perth, stop in Muthill at this delightful cafe for cream tea. Charming waitresses, excellent food, delightful setting.

Friends recommended this to us if we were in the area and so we stopped here on our way up to Pitlochry. The immediate impression as you enter is one of liveliness and cosiness as this isn't a very big tea room and it can look busy with only a few of its tables occupied. Good and helpful staff managed to serve quietly and efficiently even with the lack of space to manoeuvre.

The house speciality apart from its gorgeous looking cakes (we shared a piece of coffee and walnut - fabulous!) is the open soda bread sandwiches. The bread is wonderful and very substantial. Fillings we indulged in were the mature cheddar and the beautifully roasted ham - both accompanied by delicious chutneys.

There's something very delightful about tea served in good old fashioned china tea cups and saucers.One tends to relax back into a less stressed world and leave the rat race behind.!

We'll be back!

This appealing little tearoom in the middle of the Main Street in Muthil should not be missed if you are coming or going on the road to Crieff. The ambience is so bright & cheerful. The homemade food is excellent - whether you opt for a light lunch or a delicious homemade scone with cream & jam - it would be difficult to fault it. The staff are so pleasant & cheerful. Definitely one which shouldn't be missed. Worth a little drive out to Muthil just to experience it.

Wanted to try after seeing the reviews here (not having seen the tv show) and was not disappointed.

We both had soup, the tomato and basil was particularly good, but I was disappointed in the famed soda bread. It had no soda taste and a very thick chewy crust top and bottom. We then had carrot cake and victoria sponge. Both were good though I'm not keen on fresh cream and prefer butter cream in my sponges.

We took away scones and brownies that were lovely and wholemeal bread that was not. Again thick chewy crust top and bottom. I assumed bread would be baked daily so I didn't think to ask, it was a Monday, but I'm not convinced it was. Regardless I wouldn't buy it again.

It is a small place with only six tables so book before you travel any distance to get here, especially at the weekend.
