Popped into restaurant for evening meal. Interior is spacious with a mixture of tables and chairs and cosy sofas. I opted for a ringer steak and my partner haggis lasagne, both were very good and excellent value compared to the hotel we were staying in. They have live music at weekends too. Good place to spend an evening out.

We came here on a voucher from it is on and were not disappointed. The rooms were clean, cosy and comfortable. We ate in the hotel as we also got discount for that and it was great. Four meals and numerous drinks all came in at under £100. Couldn't fault it at all. I'd come back in a minute.

Really good atmosphere with the fiddle and live music on a Sunday. Really good food, can't complain. Service is really good as well. Staff were very aware locally and knew their place of work. Would recommend.

Amazing food, amazing customer service. Very friendly. Drinks are drinks so drinkable. Love music on a Sunday is really good. Disabled access also which is pretty decent. A local filled pub with their locals.

One of the best hotels in the area. Bar/restaurant area is also great to stay in for those not wishing to go elsewhere during evenings. Hospitality was excellent, as were the rooms and sleep quality. Overall a great stop over for one night stay in Pitlochry and great value for money.
