Another very good coffee and cake break in the bar area of the restaurant. Tables overlooking the River Tay are highly sought after. Service is very good and choice of scones etc is first class. Ample parking.

Summer Season 2014 at Pitlochry Festival Theatre, called Home Again, is a weekly run of six different plays over six days in celebration of Scotland's second Year of Homecoming! Whisky Kisses, The Yellow On The Broom, Perfect Days, The Admirable Crichton, Passing Places and Mr Bolfry make up this years exciting and diverse collection. Much more than plays, Pitlochry Festival Theatre is also the setting for a whole host of Sunday concerts, Active Arts workshops, tours and talks, or take in a visit to Explorers Garden to help make your trip to PFT even more special! "The stylistic equivalent of a West End producing theatre, set against a picture-postcard backdrop of rolling Perthshire hills!" The Herald
