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.
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.

We would like to thank all our customers who continue to support us during this challenging time, we really do appreciate it.
Due to the historic nature of our building we will be operating with 1 metre social distancing with mitigation's in place, which include perspex screens, reduced seating capacity, more frequent deep cleaning, hand sanitiser available for customers and our staff will be wearing face masks and a cheery smile! We have carried out risk assessments and completed industry standard training to ensure that we can be COVID-19 safe as possible. You will still get the same warm welcome and great food when you visit. As we have had to remove some tables and reduced capacity booking is advised. Please be aware of this when planning a visit.
You must also now wear a face covering at all times apart from when you are seated.

Takeaway @ The Toll
We are grateful that our family and staff are all healthy and are so appreciative of all NHS and other key workers at this time.
The hospitality business has been hit hard by the COVID-19 situation, and given the historic layout of The Balgedie Toll where 2 metre social distancing is difficult, we had to adapt in order to survive in the long term.
We were delighted to be able to offer a Takeaway Service, which allowed us continue to trade in these difficult times. Our customers have told us that they have enjoyed this service and so we are going to continue to offer Takeaway when we fully open on 1st August.
We will be serving the same great food, served in recyclable containers for you to enjoy in the safety of your own home. The menu is restricted and some of your favourites may not be available as they simply don't perform well in carry out containers. You will find the Takeaway menu under the Menu Tab on the home page. Please check before ordering as Edward will make regular changes.
Our wine list and bottled beers will be available.
Please be patient when calling as we only have 1 phone line.
