Only ate in the brasserie tonight but the food was fantastic as was the service. Not stuffy at all but the surroundings and the finishes really are impressive.
Definitely recommend and will return next time we are up in the summer.

This place is fabulous! The food and service in the Brasserie were excellent and to top it off, we were picked up by Fonab taxi service from our local B&B. Mike (the driver) could not have been more helpful and showed us around the place, including some of the bedrooms which are fabulous. We will definitely be back.

As regular visitors to the Pitlochry area to meet up with friends who live there, we had our first experience of Fonab for dinner in their Brasserie restaurant.

Firstly driving up the driveway you can't fail to be impressed with the building and the quality fusion of old and new. The concierge was very welcoming and invited us to have a drink in the lounge before dinner which we were happy to do. The lounge bar is amazing, very stylish with unrivalled views over Loch Faskally.

We then moved down a level to the restaurant. The menu choice was excellent and a sensible wine list not too long and sensibly priced. My cheese soufflé followed by braised ox cheek were outstanding.

Back up to the lounge for coffee before we left made it a wonderfully relaxed evening. We will definitely be back.

My wife thought our bill for four was unreasonably good value but noticing our bottle of wine had been missed off the bill. We were more than happy to point this out as the promptly delivered revised bill was still in our view great value.

Pitlochry has a number of good restaurants and pubs but Fonab has without doubt raised the standard to a place for special occasions which is long overdue.

Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts after your recent trip to Fonab Castle and to our Brasserie.

The hotel certainly is impressive it is revealed on the turn from the driveway. And once you have arrived you are free to enjoy the unrivalled views over Loch Faskally from our stylish new Lounge Bar.

We are all delighted that you enjoyed your meal in our Brasserie followed by a return to the Lounge for coffee and likewise we hope its not too long before we are welcoming you back to Fonab Castle.

Kind regards

My brother and I surprised our mum with a trip here for Mothers Day and everything was perfect from start to finish. Really friendly staff, great food, beautiful view and gorgeous decor. Thought all the mums receiving chocolates was a really thoughtful touch. Looking forward to coming back soon to stay :-)

Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts after your trip here to celebrate Mothering Sunday with lunch in our Brasserie.

it was a lovely day for us too and I am so delighted that you all appreciated the fine food and friendly attentive service that we are garnering a reputation with. The Brasserie is a beautiful informal venue for such a relaxed celebration and the boxes of Lindt chocolates for mums were a little token and I thoroughly enjoyed giving out and getting to meet all the lovely mothers we had.

We look forward to welcoming you back to Fonab Castle in the very near future.

Kind regards
