Eating lunch in the Public Bar the day after Dunkeld races we were expecting a good pub meal. It is after all a pub, and a somewhat fancy one at that. I ordered the Free range chicken Parma with chips & salads, my partner the Portland fish & chips. Not being particularly busy our meal came quickly & the staff were friendly. The food however did not really wow & was just average pub food. Firstly both meals were served with fries which seemed like a cheap cost saving measure over some nice beer batter chips or just chips. The parma itself was ok, a little dry but with a thickish slice of ham (which had thick fat around the edge- some people might like that though), the salad was just mixed lettuce with vinegrette, no tomato, cucumber etc. My partners fish was very good with a nice light crispy batter but had fries & the same mixed lettuce salad. At $20 the parma was well priced & $23 for fish & chips wasn't extreme. Overall we just expected a bit more attention to detail in the food even though we were eating in the public bar.
