We always pop in for coffee whilst on holiday and have never been disappointed. It is always clean,tidy and warm and staff are always friendly. Food is fresh with a wide variety of cakes. Nice to just sit and watch the river meander by.

What can I say? My fiancée and I came here for a pre theatre dinner. It was fabulous. One of the best meals I have had in years. The risotto was stunning and fresh and bursting with flavour and we shared our mains as they...More

The bar and cafe are busy before the show and during the interval. It is advisable to prebook if you plan to have lunch or dinner. The lunch is buffet style, but dinner is served at your table. Without exception, all staff were pleasant and...More

The Theatre made the ideal spot for a morning stop for tea and scones. These were good quality but the best thing is the stunning view over the River Tummel. Even if you can't get a window seat, you can still get a good view...More

A set meal of 2 or 3 courses with 3 choices for each course. There is a different menu for each play so you could go on succesive nights.

Seems to get overwhelmed if our visit was anything to go by. Adequate food but a problem to find somewhere to sit. Seems like a missed opportunity not to have had an outdoor terrace with tables, but maybe the weather would justify it too rarely!

They put on a different show every night, which means a lot of people are working hard to pull that off. You can eat dinner there too, though I didn't, and there are other amenities: a gift shop, an art gallery, and a snack bar.

I ate there before the evening performance, so do not know the answer. However I strongly suspect that you can eat there after an afternoon's performance. Why not contact them direct if you really need to know?

Summer Season 2014 at Pitlochry Festival Theatre, called Home Again, is a weekly run of six different plays over six days in celebration of Scotland's second Year of Homecoming! Whisky Kisses, The Yellow On The Broom, Perfect Days, The Admirable Crichton, Passing Places and Mr Bolfry make up this years exciting and diverse collection. Much more than plays, Pitlochry Festival Theatre is also the setting for a whole host of Sunday concerts, Active Arts workshops, tours and talks, or take in a visit to Explorers Garden to help make your trip to PFT even more special! "The stylistic equivalent of a West End producing theatre, set against a picture-postcard backdrop of rolling Perthshire hills!" The Herald
