Roost is small, as you might guess from the car parking for maybe 6 cars, maximum 8. Do not be put off either by the menu which seems to be fairly fixed - plenty of choices, but they do not vary from day to day...More

I spoke too soon in July last year. Sadly this gem is no longer open. Hopefully it might re-appear again or the owners will treat us to their superb food and hospitality somewhere else.

Stopped off for a spot of lunch, nice little place with a beautiful menu. Unfortunately this has now closed so you wont be able to share the experience any more.

A superb restaurant in all respects but closing at the end of the month, I am told. The food was great, cooked to perfection. The service just right, not overbearing but always ready to serve.

Within 30 minutes of entering I thought I had found a new favourite restaurant - nice decor, welcoming hosts, interesting menu, just off the motorway. Just when I was thinking that the soufflé starter was a pleasant reminder of much lamented Sangster's in Ellie, the...More

Tim & Anna Dover work together at the restaurant, Anna is in charge of table service and Tim exercises his skills as Head Chef in the kitchen, and in his words..."My wife and I opened the Roost Restaurant in the village of Kintillo near Bridge of Earn, just outside Perth, in the summer of 2008. Five years on the restaurant is firmly established in the area and we are known for our extensive use of Scottish ingredients, which I prepare in the classical French style that I have learnt in kitchens at home and abroad throughout my career.We are proud of the strong relationships we have developed with Scottish food and drink suppliers and always produce a locally sourced, sustainable and seasonal menu.Our dedication doesn't end in the kitchen as we enjoy fishing and foraging for our own ingredients - including wild garlic, alexanders and chanterelles - many of which appear on the menus throughout the year.But nothing is more sustainable than our new kitchen garden that features vegetables and herbs used in the restaurant. Throughout the summer months we are able to use our own supply of herbs, salads and vegetables such as potatoes, chard, baby carrots, beetroots, leeks, broad beans and purple sprouting broccoli while flowers are also grown for the restaurant."
