A family run bistro serving food throughout the day, Cargill’s works its way from cooked breakfasts to internationally flavoured evening meals, with tea and cake to snack on in between. The main menu is split between pasta and rice dishes, the likes of nasi goreng next to goats cheese, sun-dried tomato and pesto linguini, fish and meat, all similarly eclectic in their influences. A separate bistro menu is simpler, with French touches. They also run a takeaway version of the main menu, and an outside catering service.
Located in a tucked-away courtyard close to the riverside in the heart of Blairgowrie, Cargill's provides an extensive and satisfying choice of well-cooked meat and fish dishes with a fairly traditional slant. The sourcing favours the Perthshire countryside – for game in particular, and local mushrooms – and Scottish seas. Both a sizeable menu and decent specials board are available lunch and evening, while an enthusiastic team along with an owner-chef ensure good, reliable standards are maintained.
