“Furious Boar”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2014

We popped in as a change from Pitlochry for dinner, it is not far out, a short drive. Welcoming staff and the wonderfully named Furious Boar rose wine was on offer, with real ales to quench us initially. The evening was starting well.

The mussels arrives - huge portion with skinny chips and mayo (splendid starter). The mussels are from Shetland and were excellent. I can wholeheartedly recommend them.

Good choice on the menu and friendly unhurried service, would definitely return

My partner and I walked the Cateran Trail and this was our first overnight stop, after walking 16 tough miles from Blairgowrie. We had booked dinner at the hotel but unfortunately got delayed on the way, as the soles of my partner's walking boots fell off en route (saved temporarily by superglue bought in the tiny shop in the Bridge of Cally!) so we were an hour behind schedule. The lovely owners were a bit worried and phoned us a few times to check we were ok, and on hearing our plight, kept the kitchens open so we could eat dinner. I've never experienced such genuinely warm and caring service before at a hotel! Upon arrival, we were shown to lovely modern room, spotlessly clean with all mod cons and Arran Aromatics toiletries in the bathroom. The dinner was divine - a very talented chef who presented the food beautifully. Nice atmosphere, with a mix of locals and tourists. Fantastic belgium beer on tap, can't remember the name of it as it was a new one, but a pint of that after a long day of walking tasted amazing!

The next day, breakfast was ample - you helped yourself to cereals and then a very tasty and generously portioned full Scottish breakfast (or the veggie option) was served.

It became clear my partners's walking boots weren't going to last another leg of the Trail, so the owner very kindly dropped him back to Blairgowrie, where he was able to buy a new pair.

The couple who run this are genuinely lovely people and I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.

I made the booking direct with the hotel to extend our Scottish trip! Being Friday and Saturday nights, Christine suggested we have a quiet room at the rear ......job done....off we went from the East Neuk Fife to Pitlochry!
Our check in went smoothly with offers to assist with luggage...useful information about the area ...info regarding dining.... which we booked for a bar meal....all whilst being accompanied to room 4.....lovely.....clean and crisp and spacious....looking out onto the rear garden area....and with a large bathroom!
The surrounding village area was quaint and with a river walk under the belt we tidied ourselves up and headed for our evening meal! Having had sufficient fish and chips on the Fife Coast, we both opted for the gammon......could not fault it one bit! Consequently, we ate in the bar the following night and both chose the burger .....again....wonderful!
The bar is patronised by the local community as is to be expected and the atmosphere was pleasant with many diners and several drinkers....this did not encroach on our dining experience either night !
An adequate cereal choice with Juice and toasting facility was provided and the cooked breakfast was done to order....and everything on the plate was tasty!
Danny and Christine were constantly on hand throughout our short stay if needed and were pleasant and helpful and sociable and we will happily stay again when in the area!

Room Tip: We had no disturbance either weekend night and slept very well and can only suggest room 4 for the t...

We had a delightful stay at the hotel. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. The proprietors were extremely friendly and welcoming. The food was of a high standard - not your average pub grub. The atmosphere with the locals in the pub was also very pleasant. Breakfast was fine as well. We would certainly stay here again.

After reading reasonable reviews we decided to stay here and were truly disappointed. The surrounding area is beautiful but the hotel itself is in need of updating and general repair. The breakfast was mainly a "do it yourself " with minimal effort made in dark unfriendly surroundings. The family room although large had the safety catch missing on the window. For a family room on the second floor you would expect this as standard. We therefore could not relax in the room at all.
Will not stay here again.
