Myself and my partner had a lovely meal at the Perth Arms last night. The staff were very friendly and the food was excellent and not too expensive either. Great service, will definitely be back soon.

Visited for lunch and had to go back. This is honest grub very well executed using local suppliers, including smoked salmon (both hot and cold smoked) from the multi award winning Springwells Smokehouse just a few hundred yards away. The gammon with black pudding and fried egg is great (and if chef is not happy with the cooking of the... More

Friendly bar staff good selection of spirits. The food is delicious also there is a beer garden unfortunately it does not have a scenic view but the food makes up for it. Well worth a visit .

Had a wonderful meal here last night, staff couldn't have been nicer or more helpful. The mixed grill was enormous but my man managed everything, but the chips. Would strongly recommend to anyone visiting the area whether two legged or four, everyone welcomed

Nicely situated high street pub on road to Dunkeld Abbey. Needed a quick lunch on way back from shopping. Lady behind bar and lady serving food both very friendly and helpful. I sat in window seat in bar. Slightly cold as end of October. Would have been nice if fire was lit. Not to worry. Chose the special haddock and... More

We were recommended to another pub in the area but after twice visiting found it wanting so gave the The Perth Arms a go. "Awesome" warm atmosphere, very friendly. Advised that if it was not on the menu chances are they would be able to make it up and so I got my sausage and mash. Dog friendly place. Would... More

Fantastic food, staff couldn't do enough for myself and family! We sat in the lounge as the bar was very busy,which suited us with having the kids.

Called in after climbing Birnam Hill. Great Atmosphere. Good to see local beer on tap (which was great) 4 of us ate and all had something different but equally tasty. Then had the sticky toffee pudding which was awesome! Would recommend

We were recently at the Perth Arms for a charity event in which I was shaving my hair off for cancer research. From organising to catering the PA was very accommodating. There was 8 of us for a meal and the food and service was just great. The staff are really friendly and welcoming and can't wait to go back... More
