Not very impressed with this place. Staff were inattentive and got our order wrong. A one course pasta lunch for two with one soft drink each cost almost £30. We won't be back.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review Sheena. I'm glad to hear you were looked after well and enjoyed everything. You're right about the toilets, whilst they are clean and nothing wrong with them, the decor is a bit dated. We're currently finishing off plans for early next year which will see them updated.

We stopped off for late afternoon refreshments and enjoyed good service, a nice light snack, a decent bottle of red and good coffee. Next morning one of our party realised he had mislaid his credit card. We rang The Willows on the off chance he might have dropped it and he had. It had been popped into the till for... More

Arrived for lunch 2PM Saturday, quite busy so good sign. Ordered the soup split pea and veg, smallish portion which was watery and tasteless, it's served with bread but no choice of brown or white. £15 for tasteless soup and a soft drink - pricey but it is perth city centre. One thing that amazed me was, people are there... More

On our first day in Scotland, we were still caffeine deprived from the trip over plus small airline coffee servings. Plus our bodies had no idea what time of day it was. We had arrived in Perth too early to check into our hotel, so we wandered around town sightseeing. The Willows was doing a good lunch business, so we... More

Fresh breakfast and loose leaf tea at willows. The tea was excellent and the scrambled eggs, toast and bacon were fresh and tasty. I would recommend this cafe for breakfast.
