Cargill's is quirky - the front of house team of three looked like their combined ages were probably 20+ years less than mine - but they're pretty good.

This isn't fine dining but you're unlikely to leave disappointed, and the prices are reasonable. Think of it as very decent home cooking

Went here recently with family for a 60th
Anniversary. The food was lovely with a good selection. The young staff were the highlight with friendly service and informative of local knowledge. The girl that served us went above and beyond adding sparklers to my in laws desserts as a lovely geture to mark the occasion ( only sorry I didn't get her name). The place in light and airy just alongside the lovely water of Cargill. Would visit again and recommend.

Great restaurant developed in a very tasteful from the old church next to the river.

The staff show great menu awareness and provide a first class description to guide the guests towards a wonderful eating experience.

Also very child friendly with the staff able to provide a great eating experience to them also.

Phoned to book a table and although I’d know idea how long it would take us to get to the restaurant- the man on duty was lovely, booked us in and said not worry. I had said we needed gluten-free options for one person - it was all in hand. We were given the gluten-free menu with the others we did t have to ask for it.
Meatballs were lovely and the burgers were so big they struggled to finish them.
I wish we had found this restaurant before today. Nothing was too much trouble

Four of us visited here during a golfing weekend to St Andrews and Blairgowrie. Our B & B hosts recommended Cargill’s bistro and we weren’t disappointed. It has a varied menu, catering for all tastes. I had the chicken and pea risotto (for medical reasons I need to follow a low fat diet and, because they cook everything from scratch, they altered the recipe to suit), and it was delicious. The other three members of the group had fish dishes, which they all enjoyed. Good sized portions of freshly-cooked food and reasonably priced - you can’t ask for more. I would definitely recommend this bistro.
