So sad to see this restaurant go. A call centre opening up next door made it practically impossible to park at it.

Booked Tuesday for Wednesday and on arrival saw sign saying no longer trading. Text came later saying sorry but struggled to find alternative in Blairgowrie.

Cullen Skink soup was OK, but nothing special. Bread roll was mediocre. Service was friendly, but slow. Didn't bother to stay for anything else.
