Dropped in for dinner after a trip to the cinema. Excellent friendly service. We enjoyed olives and crusty bread, and then mains of Caesar salad with smoked salmon, and mussels in a cream and white wine sauce with chips. Generous portions and very tasty. We will return, thank you

Had dinner with my wife and 2 children this evening. The haggis starter was awesome and the steak burger was excellent! However, my son requested the Sunday roast and was told after he ordered that they had run out of Yorkshire Puddings! I am amazed that such a lovely restaurant can run out off eggs flour and milk for their... More

Went here on Valentine's night for our meal, it was amazing! Couldn't fault anything, the food was amazing and the atmosphere and staff were lovely too, so glad my other half chose to book here, we will definitely be back next time we are in Perth.

Found this place by accident - & wasn't disappointed. Arrived late into Perth with work, & was faced with few choices on walk to the hotel. Stumbled across this little gem, and will be back! Would recommend the Haggis Starter. If you are famished go for the Fish & Chips, the portion size is fantastic.

We had a fantastic lunch here, the staff and food were wonderful, good value for money and great service. Our daughter is gluten free and the staff could not be more helpful in guiding her through the menu.

Lovely meal at The Bothy in Perth with good service. Starter of cock a leekie terrine was delicious. All 4 of us enjoyed our meals but husband was served his steak on a breadboard. This can be a bit tricky with all the juices as well as the pepper sauce! Just keep to plates. Delicious cocktails too by the way... More

We had lunch here recently with friends. Overall it was very good. The Bothy has a nice atmosphere which reminded me of an American bar despite the location. The good was very good.
