Very disappointed with this, as I was there 6 months ago with my family, it was really nice, warm and friendly, absolutely charming waiter/manager, well, what a difference 6 months make, a complete change (apart from the menu it was still the same.....) the waitress (lunch) was really common and rude, it felt like it was a bother for her...

After having a bad experience at this restaurant a few years ago decided to give it another go as we used to go regularly and the food was alway excellent. We booked a table in advance. We arrived in good time and the place was fairly busy. We were told where our table was - not shown, however not a...

I recently visited the Toll for dinner and received service from a young blonde girl, who was not very smiley or welcoming, and seemed to rush everything she did. The food was very pleasant, and my family enjoyed their meals. Would have given 5 stars if the service wasn't so poor.

We've occasionally eaten at Balgedie Toll Tavern over the years and food and service were always good. Today we dropped in and experienced some of the worst customer service (and bad attitude) that I've ever had the misfortune to encounter. It was busyish, but there were around three empty tables and the blonde lady serving clearly did not want us...

My husband and I popped in while our son was at a birthday party in the area. We were able to be accommodated, although the owner asked if we could vacate the table by 7pm. As we were.collecting our son at 6.30 this wasn't a problem! There was a good choice of starters, mains and desserts from the normal menu...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Balgedie Toll Tavern, an old coaching inn has stood on this spot since 1534. It 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, with wooden settles and works of art by a local painter. An extensive choice of meals and bar snacks are available 7 days per week, freshly prepared to order by an award winning chef and his team. A good selection of Real Ales, Malt Whiskies, Wines, freshly ground Italian coffees, and homebaking are also available. ... more   less
