Decided to have my birthday dinner here and I'm glad I did. Staff were friendly, service was quick and food was great. Started with the black pudding scotch egg and it was cooked to perfection. Accompaniments were delicious as well. Chose the chicken Pernod pie for main and it was fantastic. Pastry, chicken, chips, everything was delicious. Cant wait to... More

We have been for lunch and tea on a few occasions now and have never been disappointed. From entering the bar area you are greeted with a cheery retort. First impressions are a little disappointing as it is in need of refurbishment. However, don't let that put you off, we have tried most of the menu. Dining as a couple... More

I came here last week for Sunday lunch, on arriving we were told that there may be a delay with our order as there was a large party in the dinning room. They weren't kidding as it took an hour after arriving for our starters to come to the table. Overall the food was a fine with large portions and... More

We made an unplanned stop here to feed some hungry children and we are so glad we did. Immediately greeted by friendly staff we were accommodated at a very busy lunchtime. Noticeably fresh cooked food we ordered and were pleasantly suprised at how good the food was. We expected typical pub type food but it was so much better. We... More

We had three evening meals here during our stay at the hotel, two in the restaurant and one in the bar. Service was very slow the first evening but we probably timed it badly as they had a group of 14 in the restaurant.

Lovely pub with small garden to enjoy the beautiful sunshine. Good choice of food and prices reasonable. Had the whole back restaurant to ourselves which was great for chatting. Friendly prompt service made this a pleasant evening meal out. Decent car park too.

Description
This destination dining spot is set inside the historic Meikleour Hotel, a picturesque, ivy-covered inn located between Blairgowrie and Perth. The home-made bistro-style menu here attracts food-lovers from far and wide, and the cosy wood-panelled dining room - with its tartan carpets and white linens - has become a local institution. All the food here is prepared in-house, from the stock-pots to the puddings, and fresh fish is delivered daily from the boats in Aberdeen, and the wine list is hand-picked. Ideal for romantic meals and celebrations, the Meileour has a feel-good home-away-from-home atmosphere, and star dishes include the beef pie flavoured with the hotel���s own Perth-brewed Lure of Meikleour ale.
