We visited here last October and the food was amazing. So we thought we'd try it again this weekend. We had the beef Bourguignon - minus the tomato puree, mushrooms, shallots and off course the red wine. Even the creamy mash was lumpy and NOT...More

The restaurant is very busy but it doesn't excuse the staff to be rude and patronising. One example was an waiter telling us the way the liver is meant to be cooked pink and if we were ok with that, my partner was, it came...More

We ate dinner at the Auld Smiddy during our one night in Pitlochry. We were blessed with a beautiful evening and we're lucky enough to get a table outside enjoying a great view of the picturesque Main Street. The food was excellent, and the service...More

Went here for a pre-theatre meal and it was excellent. Mussels and seafood were really tasty. There was a really nice atmosphere in the restaurant and the service was excellent. Reasonably priced for the quality of the food. Would recommend.

We had lunch here when we visited Pitlochry. Right at the end of the High Street just past the bulk of the shops (another 50-100 yards). Maybe some people had not bothered to walk up so far as it was very quiet. They missed a...More

Had a wonderful lunch here - the three fish(salmon/mackerel/sea bass) from the specials menu was super. Okay, a tad over-priced at £15 but, hey, you don't get food like that every day. If I were staying longer in Pitlochry I'd be back to sample more....More

What ciders do you do on draft and bottles please? Just regular cider - not flavoured. Cheers!

I don't think it would be, but double check. If not, there is an outdoor seating area if the weathers in your favour!
