Attended a wedding here in the summer but forgot to complete a review. Lovely decor, brilliantly organised wedding. Staff great and food excellent. Have always wanted to dine at Barley Bree but as we live over half an hour away we would prefer to stay the night so that we could both have a drink or 2. Unfortunately the cost... More

This has become our restaurant of choice for a special evening (or lunch) and the quality of the food and wine on offer is up there with the best available in the locale (including it's neighbouring Gleneagles). Always has a cozy atmosphere and the service is spot on. Don't hesitate - pay it a visit soon.

I organised a golfing trip for ten people and we based ourselves out of the Barley Bree. Alison and Fabrice were absolutely amazing, along with all of their staff. Nothing was too much trouble and every need we had as a group was delivered with a smile. The entire group were unanimous that this is one one the best venues... More

I'd read reviews on trip advisor and booked in for Sunday lunch. Barley Bree is described as a restaurant with rooms and that's a reflection on the food which was excellent. Loved the dining room decor, lovely young staff who couldn't do enough and nothing was too much trouble. We had the cheese board and asked for the name of... More

Food was excellent but next time I will ask to be seated near the fire as the seat next to the kitchen can be a bit chilly also. We ordered teas and coffees but we never received these but I would still return as the meal itself wAs very good

To be sure it doesn't look much from outside, but it's very comfortable and welcoming inside. The bar is especially cosy. All our meals (there were 4 of us) were outstanding, notably the belly pork for the main, and the chicory creme brulee pud. And we musn't forget the beautiful home made bread. The service was very friendly and efficient,... More

In the village of Muthill outside Crieff, and has a really excellent menu which we were not able to fully exploit as we were eating in the evening, and tempted as we were, had to compromise. The soups were really special, and were gluten free except if you wanted the wanton. Coffee had beautiful petit fours which were excellent. The... More

Excellent, had a lovely lunch here. Friend is on gluten free diet and they were able to give her soup and home made bread. Very friendly relaxed staff too.

Our first visit and certainly not our last. A lovely homely atmosphere that belies excellent cuisine. Great for game and lovely wine to go with it. Superb soup and lovely home-made bread. A wonderful experience all round.
