Had a lovely lunch with friends. The menu is extensive, we were spoilt for choice and there is also a specials menu. The food was plentiful and delicious. The staff were friendly and we weren't rushed. Would definitely go back.

3 of us ate very well at Cargill's while visiting Blairgowrie. It was recommended by a local and lived up to its reputation. The food was delicious with a good menu and range of specials and attentive and polite service. Well done.
