Had fish and chips and was definitely not over impressed by the standard of the food that I was served. The fish was not exactly inspiring and the chips were pretty much a non event. The peas were an embarrassment, these should never have been put on a plate, frozen peas that were hard and totally flavourless. The menu was... More

After a long walk on a cold day I stopped here for a late lunch, and was immediately warmed by a cheerful fire, and a well stocked bar. The staff were friendly and helpful, offering to run a tab when I ordered drinks before seeing the menu. During the meal we were asked a couple of times if we had... More

Part of the Atholl Arms Hotel, close to the famous Dunkeld Bridge. A small pub with a separate dining area. Spacious, relaxed (if you don't mind the big tv), with photos on walls of local points of interest, and a wood-burning stove. I like the way the meals, whether vegetarian or meat-ivorous, are simply listed together without special distinction. Tuesday... More

Although very busy, a Saturday, there are 2 dining areas and a lounge to take the dog. TV in the larger upper room wasn't on as I'd have wanted to watch the football. Lunch of sandwich and soup/chips very good and decent real ale. Dog presented with biscuits by the friendly staff and we felt warm enough and comfortable. Only... More

We ate here on a wet Sunday tea time, spot on pint of Guinness and the wife's Pinot was very cold. No Haddock or Sea Bass left so we both opted for the Meat Pie with roasted veg and chips.

Pretty standard but nice enough! Quite quiet so not much atmosphere. Not bad selection of beers, mix of local and not. Good whisky selection.
