Amuse-bouches served in the lounge before our evening meal was a lovely touch. The meal itself was excellent and beautifully presented. Service was also excellent. Coffee in the lounge afterwards looking out to a wonderful view was a lovely end to a perfect dining experience!

We has dinner 'in house' whist staying at the Hotel. The food was excellent, well prepared and cooked beautifully. The service could not have been better. The table settings were also first class. At 25 Pounds a head on top of our room charge, plus wine (a reasonably good selection available) the meal represented excellent value for money.

From the appetiser in the lounge to coffee and tablet back in the lounge our evening meal was just perfect. The tastiest meal we have had this year. I had the fish and my partner had lamb, both cooked to perfection. The staff were friendly and efficient. We really enjoyed the whole thing. Breakfast was just as delicious. If you... More

Breakfast was great. The dining room is not especially large, but very beautiful. It's like eating in a castle. Ate the eggs Benedict. Homemade hollandais sauce, you could tell. Husband had scrambled eggs he said they were the best he'd had in Scotland. I wish I had enjoyed the coffee more though.

Dinner as good (if not better) than most excellent restaurants in Edinburgh! Setting, taste and service was 1st class. Highly recommended, even if you are staying somewhere else in Pitlochry!

This restaurant surpassed our expectations. The quality of the food and the presentation was outstanding. Our group tried everything on the pre set menu and all raved about it. The servers had a great attitude and made our meal more enjoyable. Probably the best we had during our visit to Scotland

We stayed at Knockendarroch April 2016, had an amazing stay and ate at the restaurant on two occasions. Both nights we had truly memorable evenings. Sitting in the lounge before the meal with a great scottish beer (Ossian) taking in the views with snow falling on the hills, open fires warming us and enjoying delicious canapés was the perfect to...

Our dining experience at Knockendarroch was good. The staff were very friendly and attentive. It was a set menu with four choices for each course. We were treated to two canapés which were okay, but very simple fare. The meal was of a good standard, but was very overpriced in our opinion, at £42 each without coffee.
