Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Literally just back from a Christmas dinner here and we are absolutely stuffed! The portions were huge to us and everything was piping hot. The beef and the tablet cheesecake definitely lived up to the hype🤤 I don’t typically eat mash either, but you’s may...have turned me with that garlic mash. Wish I had been sooner, because I will definitely be back. 10/10More

The Pitcairngreen Inn is a cosy restaurant that operates alongside a lively village pub. We went for dinner while staying at a nearby hotel, and would thoroughly recommend visiting. There were a good selection of specials on offer alongside the main menu of traditional pub...favourites. The portion sizes were generous, and the food was delicious and keen to advertise its home-made credentials. It was also a pleasant surprise to receive the bill, as it was the cheapest main meal of our holiday, representing excellent value for money. Finally, as the sign outside proudly proclaims, they've been dog-friendly since 1788, which is surprisingly rare in this part of the world.More

We went to the Pitcairngreen Inn for an evening meal on the recommendation of our AirBnB host and we weren’t disappointed. The staff were very friendly, the service was great, the food was excellent and the portions generous. We will definitely be back!

Pitcairngreen Inn is called Perthshire's hidden gem, on their website, and it really is. We had 6 different dishes, all homemade, all delicious. If you get the chance to eat there, take it - the food is amazing. Service is good too and the chef...is very accommodating with dietary requirements. It's easy to get to and there is loads of parking space. Can't say enough good things about this place. I'm looking forward to going back.More

This was a return visit, we’ve eaten here a few times in the past, we always thought it was a nice experience and good value. However this time it wasn’t up to standard, I had the rump steak, it was a bit tough and the...chips were very limp, they looked and tasted greasy, not very appetising, My wife had the macaroni, she liked what she got, she might just make me come back and give it another go. However my disappointment was further compounded when I found out they no longer served Guinness, they have replaced it with London Stout, I tried it, it didn’t come remotely close as an alternative to Guinness, how could it, Guinness is a centuries old tried and tested stout that’s served successfully locally … and all over the worldMore

We shared four crostini toasts between us. All excellent. Sourdough toast with mackerel pate, hummus and feta, Parma ham with garlic tomatoes, and hot creamy mushrooms. Decent pint to wash them down too

Been in a few times. Big fan. Food is good pub grub with a few extras, the mac and cheese and burgers are great, so is the Sunday roast . Bar is always worth grabbing a drink as locals friendly and the staff have good...chat. Worth a drive or cycle out of Perth.More

Read loads of great reviews so thought we'd give this place a visit. To say it didn't live up to the hype is an understatement! I have no idea how this place has such highly rated reviews? Food I had was terrible. I had the...veggie burger of the day which was a spicy lentil burger. It was the driest burger I have ever had. No lettuce no tomatoes no sauce no toppings, nothing. It was just a dry bun with some dry gravel like lentils which looked like they had been smooshed together in a tray then cut out into a square shape. It resembled a slab of tablet. The 'salad' that came with it were some lettuce leaves with a dressing that looked a bit like cat sick if I'm honest. The chips were ok-ish but not very crisp. The decor and table settings are pretty worn and dated too. Doesn't look a very clean looking place really. We were also sat right next to the only other folk eating? I know the place isn't huge but there were other empty tables. Made our conversations difficult to hear and awkward. Only positive is the staff were lovely. So it's a real disappointment that the food and interior doesn't match how nice the staff are. Sorry Pitcairngreen Inn it was a huge swing and a miss for us. Won't be back unfortunately.More

Village inn located just outside Perth with parking opposite. The building has an oldie world rustic style and whilst quaint there are parts in need of renovation. Upon entering it was straight into a teency ‘locals’ bar. Besieged by a dog (ok but we have...a person with allergies). We had actually reserved a table so we were seated in a little room next door. It has a beautiful bay window and a fire (though it wasn’t on). Strangely we were seated right next to the only other people in there (within touching distance) when all the other tables were free?!?! Strange covid rule. The pleasant girl came over for our drink orders and when I mentioned cocktails she recommended a blue lagoon. I can indeed confirm it was delicious after trying it again. However they had no straws at all not a big deal but it is something they should have. Menu is a decent choice of meals for everyone with fun names. Also offering smaller portions. Dessert menu few choices too but nothing on the night that appealed to us. The food didn’t take long and arrived in generous proportions. Was hot & tasty. The empty plates sat on the table for ages without being removed. Overall this meal was incredible value for money. The food was good & generous portions. The service could have been better. I’d still probably give it a second visit.More

My husband, two miniature schnauzers and I recently stopped by this gorgeous little country pub after a day trip to Perth. We walked around the pretty village green in Pitcairngreen and spotted the pub. We did not have a booking but the friendly and welcoming...staff were delighted to accommodate us and the dogs. It was a Saturday lunchtime in early March and it was quite busy but not too mobbed, which was lovely. We were seated at a nice bright window seat, looking out watching lots of people walking and cycling by. It’s a GREAT little people watching spot. Menus were given and drinks order was served really quickly, the waitress also brought us some dog biscuits for our dogs……..really nice touch. My husband ordered the southern fried chicken in blue cheese sauce with chips and salad. The chicken was HUGE. All crunchy and delicious on the outside and well cooked and tender on the inside. The cheese sauce was to die for. Home made chips were a real bonus. I had scampi, chips and peas with a really tasty tartar style sauce, but you could tell a mile away it was home made, again a really lovely touch. All of our food was delicious. All around the bar/dining area we could hear people commenting on how amazing their meals were, the menu is so varied and everything coming out of the kitchen looked superb. Massive portion sizes all round. We will DEFINITELY be returning soon as the Pitcairngreen Inn is the perfect country pub, in a beautiful village location, with fantastic food and the prices were super reasonable too. 10/10 from us and our dogs!!!!More
