Five members of my family gathered at this hotel for a bar lunch. The total bill was nearly £100 which we considered represented very poor value. Two of us had a Ploughman's lunch which was described as including home made terrine and cooked meats (plural!). It was priced at over £9 which we considered to be expensive but it sounded so tempting that we ordered it. We were both very dispappointed at the frugal display which arrived - the cooked meats being one slice of ham! We brought our disappointment to the attention of the staff but they were quite defensive and said no-one else had complained. Two others had smoked salmon and crayfish open sandwiches - at over £7 each, you almost needed a magnifying glass to see the the three tiny crayfish which were included! The bread - which purported to being home made - was dry and stale. We nearly all had soup - which was, incidentally, delicious - but it hardly represented 'good value' at £4 each for a small bowl - more of a 'dinner portion' than what one expects for a bar lunch.
I see that most of the reviews for this hotel are favourable so those staying overnight are obviously more impressed than we were; however, I would certainly not recommend this hotel for a bar lunch - I am sure there is much better value available, in equally pleasant surroundings, elsewhere in Perth.
