Great setting near the river and very convenient for town centre. You can have anything from soup & sandwich, through the standard menu offerings, up to some superb chef specials featuring local produce, fish & game. Definitely should be visited.

Popped in here with the family one Saturday afternoon for afternoon tea. The staff were welcoming and lovely, made the kids a babyccino at our request even though it wasn't on the menu.

Re visited Cargill's recently and enjoyed just as much as last visit. The menu has such a great amount of choice and that's before even reaching the specials black board.

Another great visit. Many thanks to all staff for such friendly service, you always make us feel so welcome. We enjoyed a most delicious meal of local grouse for me and Arbroath haddock and homemade chips for my husband. Thankfully we are able to get smaller portions!

Down by the river Ericht in Blairgowrie. Food was fine but not exciting. Good parking. Selection of wine average, staff nice, decor clean and country style. Popular for many locals which says a lot.

Popped in for a coffee on a wet Sunday afternoon and had the best shortbread (straight from the oven!) ever. Liked it so much we came back for dinner. Excellent food and friendly staff on both visits. Will go again next time we are in Blairgowrie.
