Had soup and sandwich which was tasty, but had chips with sandwich and, as it was all brought out on the same plate, the chips were cold by the time i got round to eating them. Nice fresh food, tho.

Found this lovely little bistro tucked away by the river in Blairgowrie . Only found it because of the blue tourist info sign pointing to it from beside the tourist office - it's so tucked away. Fairly busy when we went in, lovely cosy restuarant,...More
