This destination dining spot is set inside the historic Meikleour Hotel, a picturesque, ivy-covered inn located between Blairgowrie and Perth. The home-made bistro-style menu here attracts food-lovers from far and wide, and the cosy wood-panelled dining room - with its tartan carpets and white linens - has become a local institution. All the food here is prepared in-house, from the stock-pots to the puddings, and fresh fish is delivered daily from the boats in Aberdeen, and the wine list is hand-picked. Ideal for romantic meals and celebrations, the Meileour has a feel-good home-away-from-home atmosphere, and star dishes include the beef pie flavoured with the hotel���s own Perth-brewed Lure of Meikleour ale.

Decided to visit again for lunch, lovely setting, service was excellent. My meal was spot on, however my other half was disappointed in presentation of fish dish. Although the food was excellent, atmosphere perfect, just left a little disappointed. He felt plate was too big for meal and something missing. However would recommend and will definitely return again.

Had dinner on Saturday night - excellent food with a good "specials" menu. Good comfortable friendly atmosphere. One of the things we like about The Meikleour is that they serve food all day. Probably best to book at peak times, however, we've never been turned away as there is setting in the bar area also. We would definitely recommend.

We often visit the Meikleour Arms and have had lovely meals. In fact the meal we had at Hogmanay was probably one of the best ever, especially considering how busy the whole place was. However, we visited this evening and, although the meal was good, we were very disappointed at how many items on the menus were not available. We... More

Perfect lunch menu, with good friendly service, in a little village just off the main A93. Feels almost like the local pub

Meiklelour is a beautiful spot to stop inside and outside seating with lovely trees and grass area. Just off the Blairgowrie Perth main road it is a nice stop for dinner or lunch. The steaks are something a lot of my friends have enjoyed. Prices a little higher than some spots but the quality of fresh produce is worth a... More

The food was amazing and the staff was so friendly. I would highly recommend this restaurant. The salmon was cooked perfectly and the vegetables were so fresh. The dessert was wonderful as well. I cannot say enough good things about this place.
