We came into what we now call the 'Awful Arms', for something to eat. We knew that the owners also have the Moulin Inn in Pitlochry which has superb food. Unfortunately, the food here was extremely poor.
One of the best dishes in the Moulin is the Sporran of Plenty, a steak stuffed (and I mean stuffed) with haggis, freshly cooked vegetables and potatoes. When we saw this on the menu here, both my wife and I ordered what should be a fantastic dish.
Imagine our disappointment when a rather tough and fatty bit of beef arrived, a mere sprinkling of haggis next this sorry piece of meat with the barest attempt of a stuffing having been made. Flaccid and poorly prepared veg in accompaniment. The children's food was similarly presented with lack of care or pride.
We won't be back. We have advised all to avoid this eating experience. Go to anywhere else in the area instead.
