we've been coming to the Balgedie Toll Tavern for years and the food and service is always excellent. The food is freshly prepared to order and it shows, way better than your average pub food and this is undoubtedly the best place to eat in the entire area. We've tried all the other establishments around about and have always been left disappointed so now the family always insist on coming here. Don't be put off by a couple of negative comments on here, there is clearly no pleasing some people! This place is great, and the desserts and home baking are to die for!! Great value and if you come in the afternoons they do a coffee and cake deal for £2.50. You can't even get a cake for that price in most places these days! Highly recommend a visit if you want a great meal in traditional surroundings with friendly and helpful staff that can't do enough for you.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Balgedie Toll Tavern, an old coaching inn has stood on this spot since 1534. It is a welcoming and comfortable country tavern which, like many others built at the time in Scotland, was situated at a road toll where travellers would break their journey and pay tolls before travelling on (the Tolls were abolished in 1872).Now much extended, the oldest part of the building (the toll house) is ...at the southern end. It has two restaurant seating areas, one upstairs and one downstairs in the main bar plus a small snug bar. The interior is traditional with low ceilings, oak beams, stone walls and open fire places, with wooden settles and works of art by a local painter. An extensive choice of meals and bar snacks are available 7 days per week, freshly prepared to order by an award winning chef and his team. A good selection of Real Ales, Malt Whiskies, Wines, freshly ground Italian coffees, and homebaking are also available. ... more less
