A not so quiet Monday night in Perth and sadly a disappointing birthday dinner. Slow service, luke warm starter, overcooked steak which was sent back before waiting 25 mins for an undercooked one then we sat and looked at our dirty plates until we finally managed to get a bill which we had to ask to reflect our poor experience....

We visited The Bothy for a family party and experienced delicious food & friendly service. Even our four month old son was made a fuss of and staff were the perfect balance of attentive and unobtrusive.

This is an excellent place to eat in the centre of town. Staff are friendly and the food is very tasty, especially the steak pie! Will definately be back on my next visit to Perth.

A decent but pricey menu (£27 for a 30 day aged steak? Miller & Carter in Glasgow is much better at £19 for an excellent 50 day aged ribeye). As it... More
