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

Stopped here for a late lunch on a very wet Saturday afternoon. We ate in the bar/bistro area which was fairly quiet when we arrived probably due to the time. We found the food to be good standard pub grub with plenty of choice on menu (steak pie, macaroni, pizza and burgers). The servers were attentive and we both enjoyed... More

A instantly forgettable meal here that was not by any means cheap. My husband's burger meal -very poor and the accompanying bacon leathery in texture.Ive read other readers experiences on burgers here and although the way in which we like them cooked and to taste is very subjective -this was just substandard stuff. We had a wait of over 20... More

Hello Carolinascot, I am sorry to read this review. You clearly did not enjoy your visit. Can I just mention that all our dishes are made to order which does take slightly longer than making something from a freezer plus in the summer, our busiest time , it is not unusual to wait over 20 mins for a meal to...

A lovely place, well designed, plenty of room, no naff music. The staff were very attentive and friendly and the food was good, especially the sharing platters - the vegetarian one is enough for a main course! We would have given it 5 stars if it wasn't for the fact the the mens' toilets were not clean, no hand towels... More

Stopped here for lunch with our two dogs and were made very welcome. Food was good though not the cheapest, service was friendly and water and biscuits were also provided for both our pets. Very relaxing atmosphere and we really appreciated being made to feel at ease with our dogs, a very nice experience.

We were attracted by the options of local and other Scottish produce on the menu but were disappointed by a) that the waitress forgot about us as were waiting for a table, b)that we were only told there no more mussels after they have brought us the bread for them to the table; c) that such bread was taken away...

We visited this pub on 3 occasions during a recent stay in Dunkeld. We wanted to watch some sporting events ( Wimbledon and open golf ) and knew that our dog would be made welcome Food was good and very fresh. Good choices of beer and friendly staff Good atmosphere and would definitely recommend
