“Nice hideaway”
Reviewed April 7, 2014

We had a lovely meal here on our visit to Dunkeld. Although they were busy they kindly fitted us in. The service was extremely good and efficient and we both had great meals at a reasonable price.

Reviewed March 1, 2014

The gift of valentines day 2014 was discovering this leafy hideaway.Decor is fresh,interesting,cool and trans-seasonal.The food was remarkably good,pate stuffed mushrooms,breads,duck,fish with good vegetables and well chosen sauces.Service was excellent and the hotel owner an example of what someone should be in this oft difficult role This place is a must for anyone visiting Dunkeld and well worth a 2 minute drive off the A9 for good food in a refreshing environment

“Good menu range, food average”
Reviewed February 3, 2014

We stopped in at The Royal Hotel Dunkeld on our travels for a meal and to break our drive. After having to go to the Hotel Reception because nobody was in the restaurant, we were directed to the pub section instead for our meal.

We were pleased with the range of menu options and ordered a burger (highly recommended by the young guy working at the bar) and the chicken curry. Sadly, both were only average and we have experienced better pub meals elsewhere. The burger lacked taste and seasoning and the thick cut chips were clearly of the frozen packet variety. The accompanying salad was lacking also. The chicken curry was a bit dry, a small portion size (except for the very oversized papadam), with only a small piece of naan. Despite asking for a hot curry, it was not even what we would consider mild.

We decided against dessert and hit the road instead, slightly disappointed with our meal. If you are in the area, we would recommend checking menus at adjacent restaurants before deciding to eat here.

“Lovely Meals and dog friendly”
Reviewed September 1, 2013

While staying at Invermill Caravan park, we had two meals sitting outside in the courtyard, Dogs were made very welcome , we could have sat inside but having a 20 week old Lab pup, we thought it would be better outside,( She want to be friends with everyone).
I highly recommend the Chefs Special Cajan Chicken Burger, both meals we couldn't manage a dessert. If back in the area we will be back . Staff were very friendly and helpful.

“Good food”
Reviewed June 10, 2013

Been there twice - big, interesting menu, good food, excellent service, and reasonable prices. Well worth a visit, but at weekends you probably need to book.
