Festive Season


COVID Update

From 27th December we are back to table service and groups of up to 3 households again.  As a result we will not be opening on a Wednesday night for our pub night, all other hours are as per normal, closed Tuesday/Wednesday, open from Thursday - Monday.  



Our Story

The Balgedie Toll Tavern is a country pub  in rural Kinross-shire, serving great food and real ales.  Run by Neil Cairney and family since September 2019 you can be assured of a warm welcome.

The Balgedie Toll Tavern 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.  On a sunny day the outside seating area provides a place to relax.

A good selection of real ales, malt whiskies, wines,  and gins are available.  Locally roasted coffee  and great food are  served Thursday - Monday.  On a Wednesday night we have a "pub night" where we are open from 5pm for drinks only, no food as our kitchen team are having a well earned rest.

From traditional recipes to Head Chef Edward's kitchen adventures, the menu reflects our passion for high-quality local seasonal food presented in a simple yet pleasing manner.
