Reviewed 9 May 2014

We dined here, mid afternoon, mid week, and felt the quality of our meals were poor, and overpriced. Service was fair, but we felt the staff could have been more attentive. Disappointing.

“Kind and friendly”
Reviewed 9 May 2014

Amazingly there are no public toilets in Pitlochry.

But the staff here very kindly allowed my 90 year old mum to use the hotels facilities - and we three others as well! Contrast my review for the small local distillery.

The cheese platter and beer were great too !

“Nice place for a meal”
Reviewed 6 May 2014

Ate here for lunch. A bit dimly lit. Hard to read the menus. You order at the bar with your table number and then they bring it to you.

Good menu and a nice looking place. Food was good.

“Excellent service!”
Reviewed 5 May 2014 via mobile

Visited Mckays on Sunday the 4th of May 14, been a few times before and always found it welcoming, this visit was no different, I was served by Steve, who I found extremely efficient, he took time to chat to me as for a while I was on my own till my family arrived, this I found excellent professional service not sure if he was the manager but if he isn't he should be, I will be back next time I am in Pitlochry
