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...

Hello GrisyGer, I have messaged you directly to ascertain more information in regards to your feedback on your visit to The Meeting Place.

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

We did not plan in being in Dunkeld for a meal but really hit a winner on a number of fronts. It happened to be half price night for fish and chips which turned out to be very tasty and freshly cooked when ordered. The waiter was very attentive and regretted he could only provide one non dairy option for... More

Dogs are welcomed with biscuits and water. The Meeting Place feels upmarket and modern and you are not stuck in a corner because you have a dog. Food and service are excellent.

We returned to The Meeting Place to give them one final chance as we had eaten here last year but my “handmade burger” was overcooked and dry. Once we were sat down and furnished with drinks I hit upon a cunning plan. In order to avoid a dry, solid lump of mince I would politely ask for my Burger to... More
