Visited here with friends as staying in Dunkeld for New Year. After eating locally we popped in here for a drink to find a very busy pub with a live band playing. Fantastic atmosphere everyone very friendly. Will be back next time we visit Dunkeld

We always nip in when in Dunkeld.We were there at night and the band and atmosphere were superb. We did not eat here this time,but the Homemade soups are always superb. Well worth a visit.

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.

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
