Lothian Cyclists club run visit

The Black Watch was just at the right place, at the start of the return leg for our cycle run. But more than just convenient!. Good food, price, facilities and great staff. Would we go again?.....Of course!

With this being our 9th time eating in The Black Watch, it is our favourite place to eat in Aberfeldy. Especially for our son Joshua, where the waitress kindly asked the chef to cook sausage and mash which wasn't on the lunch menu, which she said it was no problem. They also cater for gluten free and other specialised diets... More

On entering, apart from us (2), there was only another couple dining so atmosphere to start with wasn't great. The temperature in the dining area was also cool which further added to the initial below average feeling. We actually had some difficulty choosing our food as the menu was strange; it had aspirations of finer pub grub but nothing quite... More

We are sorry to hear you did not enjoy your meal with us. It surprises us to hear you found our 'Catch of the day' dish to be bland as usually receive such positive feedback and can only put this down to personal taste. The duck is cooked medium rare, unless a customer requests it differently, as find the taste... More

The Black Watch Pub maybe sounds an obviously military orientated pub and restaurant, but a nicer and more genuine welcome you couldn't find. Genuinely polite and conversational staff, the food was excellent, fresh, well presented, piping hot and without issue. One of the better meals out we've had in Perthshire.
