Having gluten free food wasn't a problem at all. The owner came and explained the menu in detail so I could eat with confidence. The food was lovely.

Really nice food, good quality and great portion sizes. House white wine wasn't great so better to spend a bit more Venison was mostly cooked pink but a little over at the end so a little inconsistent but really tasty Service was excellent, friendly and attentive Just a tad expensive

My wife and I enjoyed a fabulous dining experience at this quant restaurant. You have to experience the food to appreciate how good it is. Unfortunately, I ordered a bottle of wine which was not available, due to it being low season; however our attentive waitress offered the only bottle of the same wine, which had had a thimble full...

Nice on a sunny day to sit on the terrace, have a coffee and watch the world go by. Could do with a slightly wider variety on the menu, but, worth a visit.

Visited for pre theatre dinner on Saturday. Really good food and wine in delightful surroundings and charming staff including a new waitress being very well schooled in the art of good service. Will certainly return.

The food was local produce and dishes were a variety of traditional and new takes on the old. Whilst the food was good, the service was slow, even though they promote themselves for pre-theatre meals, and there were a few mistakes.

Looked at this restaurant on the internet before we left for the weekend in Pitlochry and it didn't disappoint. Four three course meals and only one slight complaint (lamb on the kebab was a bit fatty) Would visit this restaurant again if i am back in town.

We had been recommended this restaurant by friends. The interior is pleasant and we were warmly welcomed. The choices on the menu were good and our order taken quickly. It did take a while for pre-dinner drinks to arrive and that should have warned us. Our booking was for 7.30 and only one member of our party of 4 had... More

Fern Cottage Restaurant in the heart of Pitlochry is a firm favourite, both for local residents and visitors to Highland Perthshire. We are located as close as you can get to the heart of this picturesque Victorian town. Fern Cottage Restaurant offers a warm Highland welcome, truly tasty food and personal service for every customer. Our menus have an emphasis on flavour, the freshness of Scotlands' larder and a taste of the Mediterranean. There is now more than ever on offer with different menus at lunch and dinner times. Retaining much of the original ethos of using Scottish, seasonal ingredients to create dishes with a Mediterranean twist, our food is cooked to order and guarantees a treat for your taste-buds, whether a classic or a contemporary dish. Fern Cottage is now on winter hours. We will be open for lunches from 12noon with last orders at 2.15pm. We will re-open for pre-theatre or a la carte in the evening all using seasonal produce - we offer you something special every time. Head Chef Rifat Aycan has created the new menus using an exciting new range of dishes packed with flavour and all beautifully presented. Whether front of house or 'behind the kitchen door, every member of our team is dedicated to ensuring you enjoy your visit, spread the word and come back for more!
