We stopped for dinner to break up a long drive home, there's a rumour in our family of a connection generations back and we stay far away so always try to pop in when we're near to it. The food was beautiful, my husband loves his fish and chips, so he ordered that, and he says it was the best... More

Myself and two friends stayed here for a night as a getaway. We were staying in one of the external cabins and it was exactly what we wanted, a decent size, sofa area, wifi, a fridge. We ate three meals in the hotel and they were really good. The service was slow at times but only one member of staff... More

This was our second visit to the Inn for our wedding anniversary as we had been so impressed after our first visit a year ago. On our original visit the food was out of this world and the service almost second to none. We were seated in the main restaurant as the bar area was so packed. However, this time,... More

The standard room was modest, but the public rooms are very pleasant. The food was generally very good, but just as expensive as elsewhere in Scotland. The staff are very capable and friendly. Although it didn't bother us, others might need to know that it's on a busy road.

After having boycotted for 18 months due to dreadful food and service, we went back thinking it had changed hands, new menu etc. I was very disappointed by the food presented. Menu looks great but what comes out can be got elsewhere and much nicer. Service was average at best as we had to continually ask for basics. Another try... More

We were recommended the Famous Bein Inn by friends and were looking forward to eating here. We each ordered a roast beef sandwich and soup at £7.95 per person. The soup was good, but the sandwich contained just one thin and small slice of dry roast beef with lots of gristle and fat, between slices of toast, burnt on one... More

My husband and I took our friends, one of whom had owned the Bein Inn in the 1960's and another who had worked for him as a waiter, there for dinner when the former waiter came to Scotland on holiday: it was supposed to be a special evening... We were a few minutes late but still wanted to take some... More

First visit to the Bein Inn...and am very pleased to say that I recently enjoyed a superb dinner at this hidden gem in Perthshire.... The menu is most interesting with plenty of choice..(truth is I could have gone for almost any item listed!..they all looked really good). Decided to start with seared scallops which were absolutely perfect and beautifully presented,... More

We decided to go here as a birthday meal for my daughter, so booked in advance as there were 8 of us in our party. Arrived to be greeted with "you can dine in the bar although table offered was very small and not enough room for 6adults and two young children ,or in the dining room" which was much... More
