We were traveling from Perth to London and just decided to leave the highway and see what we could find in the local area. Anderson's is unassuming and off the beaten path, but we walked in and were seated right away without a reservation although...More

We had not booked ahead, but they found us a table. The standard of service and the quality of freshly prepared food was really impressive.

If you are anything like me, you'll be spoiled for choice, the main menu is interesting and varied, and the specials were good the day I visited, including an ace Cotes du Rhone (15 percent abv!). The rare-cooked lamb won out.

I stopped in here on the off-chance it would be good - the wild boar and chorizo burger was amazing, as was the haggis pate and the sponge pudding. Very nice staff.

This food is delicious. The only problem we had is that the menu was not up to date and many items were not available. Also the local beer was not available much to the disappointment of 2 of our party.

Sorry, we don’t allow dogs. We are a very small one roomed restaurant, unfortunately not everyone loves dogs, so on that basis we have to say no. Thank you for understanding. Happy New Year. Steve Anderson

WelcomeWhether you've something to celebrate, are at the end of a hard day's walking in the hills, or simply fancy a break from cooking at home, it is our wish at Anderson's that you all feel welcome. Forget pretence, the atmosphere here is relaxed and informal, so sit back, switch off, and savour the pleasure of great food and drink. Local Produce At Anderson's we are committed to using local Scottish produce when it is in season, so needless to say, our menu changes each month, along with our daily specials. Each dish is lovingly prepared and bought together in such a way as to bring out the very best of truly great, fresh ingredients. Although our menu is creative, our aim is simple, to present you with food that we are confident you will enjoy, and that tastes fantastic.Family Friendly The whole family is welcome at Anderson's, and it is important to us that everyone can tuck into something they will enjoy. So for children we can either offer half portions of anything on the menu, or for specific likes or dislikes, please feel comfortable to say, and the chef will be happy to come up with something to suit- within reason! Similarly please make us aware of any special dietary requirements you may have.“It’s great to see a restaurant like Andersons opening up in Boat of Garten. Owners Steve and Claire have put a huge amount of thought and effort into their set up, and their intended philosophy of utilizing the best of Scottish produce should be a real boost to the local restaurant scene. I wish them every success for the future.” Nick Nairn
