The menu changes everyday. The chef uses locally sourced products and a flair! We loved every meal, and enjoyed 3 courses. The serves were just right.
A very classy meal indeed.

“Fantastic venue”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 July 2014

After spending a day at Nae limits, my husband treated us to a luxury stay at the Knocendaragh Hotel. From the moment we arrived at the small hotel we were welcomed by very friendly staff. The grand house is styled out fantastical, the rooms were very nice, lovely big bed and fantastic views over Pitlochery as the house is situated high up so your not looking into other buildings just scenic views.

The food was fantastic very high quality indeed with a wide range of wines to select from, service was great also, staff were very attentative. We started with a amuse bouche in the lounge with a pre dinner drink. After the meal we retired back to the lounge for tea and after dinner aperitif, as it was a lovely evening we sat in the beautiful gardens taking in the views whilst enjoying our evening drinks.

“A Must in Pitlochry”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 June 2014 via mobile

I am not sure whether the price is exclusively for hotel guests but GBP 49 for three-course dinner for two people is absolutely a bargain. It is particularly so as there is no compromise on the food quality. The layout and taste of each course is just perfect and at the par of the top restaurants in London. Please do keep the price and the good work! We had lamb, chicken, duck and all of them are just delicious. The desert was perfect! They don't do cocktail but I had a very nice Pimm's. Thank you for taking the effort to make it.

It is a relaxing dining place with about 8 small tables.

The breakfast was very nice as well.

“Simply lovely!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 May 2014

We were staying at the Hotel for one night and had dinner included. The quality of the food and the efficient and thoughtful service surpassed our expectations. We had the scallops with black pudding mash for starters and the Duck and Pork for main and they were both cooked very well and presented beautifully.

Also included were hors d'oeuvres and coffee and petit fours in the Lounge, all which contributed to a memorable evening. We enjoyed the House- recommended Cabernet Sauvignon which was reasonably priced and very good.

We are hoping to returning to Scotland and would certainly look to visit again
