Having stayed at Fishers previously, we decided to stay overnight before moving further north to Aberdeen.
We booked in for bed breakfast and evening dinner.
The room was fine and quiet, if a little dated, and the bed was one of the most comfortable I have slept in.
We went down to dinner a little early to avoid any rush, as there was a coach load of continental tourists staying, who had arrived that afternoon, and we were advised it may be busy?
Down stairs was undergoing some refurbishment (again as it was on the previous occasion that we stayed) the smell of paint was very strong.
Fortunately the smell did not permiate the dining room, which is very elegant.
Being virtually empty such a large room lacked atmosphere, our fault for being too clever by dining early?
The staff were very attentive, but the meal was poor, as was the menu which had little choice.
Plates were cleared the moment we finished each course, a little too quickly?
The small bar is comfortable, with an excellent barman, and it is possible to eat in there and in the garden room which is what we should have done, because the bar menu was better with more choice. The food although produced in the same kitchen appeared more appertising and of better value.
Following a good nights sleep, we went down to breakfast.
Same attentive staff, but the food again was poor, dried eggs, over cooked bacon, very dissapointing.
The town however is lovely and a favourite of ours. If you have not visited Pitlochry then you really should.
