Weekends are getting very busy for which we are grateful, but this means that we are finding that we are having to disappoint folk by turning them away,  please do ensure that you plan ahead and book.

Call 01592 840212 to book.  The phone is answered from 11.30am, but if you leave a message we will get back to you.

We will be closed on Tuesday 9th May.

Service Charge/Tips

Many restaurants are now adding service charges to bills, we have made the decision not to do this. Tipping originated in the 18th century “To Insure Prompt Service”, as a way for customers to reward good service. Here at the Balgedie Toll if you want to give a tip we appreciate it, but don’t expect it. Tips are shared out equally between the front of house and kitchen staff depending on hours worked. Tips can be added onto card payments.

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 6 days, with the kitchen being closed on a Wednesday.

On a Wednesday night we have a "pub night" where we are open from 6pm 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.
