Friendly attentive service. Simple yet lovely home made food at a reasonable price means you cannot go wrong dining here. We were lucky enough to eat outside on the terrace overlooking the River Tay while enjoying lunch in the sunshine and will not hesitate to pop in again next time we visit Dunkeld. Delicious Maccy Cheese!

Thanks for your review. I am glad you enjoyed the food and also the terrific view from our small terrace. We also own the garden across the road, next to the river which is a great place to sit and let the world drift by. We are hopeful the weather will remain positive for a long and warm summer. Look...

Part of the Atholl Arms hotel, The Meeting Place provides delicious food in a very informal setting. They now offer stone baked pizzas, which have a thin base and offer a range of delicious toppings, as well as traditional favourites. In addition there are daily specials - tonight's specials included partridge and grey mullet - and a range of delicious... More

Firstly - dog friendly in the bistro and bar,this lunch time call is part of the Atholl Arms Hotel located on Bridgehead and, in fact, just a minute from the bridge itself. Tastefully decorated in shades of grey the bar is complete with roaring fire and leads through to the dining space at the back which, in turn, is heated... More

Family meal that went smoothly. 4 people ordered the fish and chips (2 x battered, 2 x crumbed). Pretty enjoyable with a good portion. 1 x mac and cheese - decent feedback. I had a pint of the draught pale ale which was pretty tasty. Wasn't the cheapest meal for what we got but that tends to be the case... More

On a day out, dropped into Dunkeld for lunch. Selected the Atholl Arms Hotel close to the river and bridge. We were taken through to an annex building, known as the Meeting Place - much bigger than it looks from outside, extending all the way to the back with ample dining space and flat screen TV's showing sport. Best memory... More

Hello FairCityFrasie, Thank you for taking the time to write a review for The Meeting Place. Good to hear you enjoyed your Smoked Salmon sandwich. Everything we cook is made from scratch and as local as we can get. We are fortunate Perthshire has an amazing larder of fresh produce all year. As the summer approaches we will be using... More

Stopped in here for something to eat on route from Inverness and glad we did. The food was fresh made and piping hot. We both had the beef & ale pie with chips and steamed vegetables. Dessert was an added bonus too - rhubarb crumble and chantily cream. Looking forward to going back hopefully very soon.

Stopped here for a late lunch while on a motorbike ride with two friends. On entering the hotel, first impressions were of perhaps a little dreary and dowdy... almost 'shabby', but not quite that bad. We were shown to a table in the bar area which, we discovered later, was a bad choice as - while eating - we were... More

Hello Daniele I, I just wish you had mentioned something at the time of visit as we would have been happy to offer you something else to eat.

Visited this excellent restaurant again and as ever we were able to take our dog into the dining room. She sits under the table and the waitress said she didn't notice we had a dog.
