Stopped for lunch here last week, had been previous and liked it that's why we were returning. Cullen Skink was £7.95 starter, a tad dear but usually a winner. Potatoes were raw and there was no fish, I was told the fish was blended in the sauce, nope, no taste. The waitress was lovely as I explained and apologised how... More

Didn't eat here but nice pub. Dogs are welcome too. Has a lovely outdoor seating area right by the river which wasn't open but will definitely return when it is.

We came across this restaurant by accident on a weekend break to Dunkeld and how glad we were to have found it. Lovely open fire, really friendly staff. We started with the homemade tomato and lentil soup - it was delicious. My husband had the fish in breadcrumbs which he enjoyed and I had the home made burger and I... More

Had fish and chips and was definitely not over impressed by the standard of the food that I was served. The fish was not exactly inspiring and the chips were pretty much a non event. The peas were an embarrassment, these should never have been put on a plate, frozen peas that were hard and totally flavourless. The menu was... More

After a long walk on a cold day I stopped here for a late lunch, and was immediately warmed by a cheerful fire, and a well stocked bar. The staff were friendly and helpful, offering to run a tab when I ordered drinks before seeing the menu. During the meal we were asked a couple of times if we had... More

Part of the Atholl Arms Hotel, close to the famous Dunkeld Bridge. A small pub with a separate dining area. Spacious, relaxed (if you don't mind the big tv), with photos on walls of local points of interest, and a wood-burning stove. I like the way the meals, whether vegetarian or meat-ivorous, are simply listed together without special distinction. Tuesday... More
