Description: Fern Cottage Restaurant in the heart of Pitlochry is a firm favourite, both for local residents and visitors to Highland Perthshire. We are located as close as you can get to the heart of this picturesque Victorian town. Fern Cottage Restaurant offers a warm Highland welcome, truly tasty food and personal service for every customer. Our menus have an emphasis on flavour, the freshness of Scotlands' larder and a taste of the Mediterranean. There is now more than ever on offer with different menus at lunch and dinner times. Retaining much of the original ethos of using Scottish, seasonal ingredients to create dishes with a Mediterranean twist, our food is cooked to order and guarantees a treat for your taste-buds, whether a classic or a contemporary dish. Fern Cottage is now on winter hours. We will be open for lunches from 12noon with last orders at 2.15pm. We will re-open for pre-theatre or a la carte in the evening all using seasonal produce - we offer you something special every time. Head Chef Rifat Aycan has created the new menus using an exciting new range of dishes packed with flavour and all beautifully presented. Whether front of house or 'behind the kitchen door, every member of our team is dedicated to ensuring you enjoy your visit, spread the word and come back for more!

We had lunch here on Saturday as we ate dinner here on our last visit and lunch at Victorias . Our dinner was very good on our last trip so we swapped this time. We were a bit disappointed I had the " soup of the day" as was told was Asparagus, I got some" crème Garbure" which was cream of vegetable with a little asparagus in it but overpowered by the other vegetables.So a bit disappointing we had ham sandwiches containing a small amount of meat. Hose red and rose wines were fine as was the shortbread tea and coffee.We did not want a substantial lunch as we were having dinner this time in Victorias. We, I am sure,will return for dinner in the future

My wife and I had not booked but were welcomed and offered a choice from two tables.
Service was friendly and efficient. We both started with soup which was excellent.
My steak was cooked to perfection, exactly as requested. My wife's chicken dish was also enjoyed. The vegetables although cooked and presented perfectly could have been warmer.

We had booked tickets to see 'The Steamie' and not knowing where to eat, pre our trip to the theatre, we were recommended this restaurant. We were not disappointed the meal was absolutely lovely (both my husband and myself had the venison).The staff were very pleasant and the surroundings were lovely. We will be visiting them again on our next visit to Pitlochry.

All three of us had the venison and it was excellent. The atmosphere was cozy but not too loud to talk. The waiters were attentive and as they saw that we were not in any hurry, they let us stay after they had locked the front door. (There was still a large party at another table.)
