We were looking for lunch in a dog friendly place after a fantastic walk through the nearby "Hermitage". It was a lovely sunny Saturday afternoon, so wanted somewhere we could sit outside. The Atholl Arms has a huge garden right over the road from the hotel's front door. There is a well stocked bar in the garden, right down at the riverside, with plenty of picnic table seating.
The dogs were welcome, with water bowls provided.
We were also made to feel welcome, and the food was good. I was worried that with the food having to be carried over the road from the hotel that it might be cold by the time it arrived, but no such problem. My fish and chips was piping hot when it arrived; so too were my daughters' macaroni and chips and my wife's bean burger with Haloumi.
The menu was varied and had an impressive vegetarian and vegan selection. We ended up here because the next door Tayview was only offering a barbeque, with an obvious lack of variety.
Prices at the Atholl Arms were very reasonable. Lunch, including soft drinks, less than £15 per head.
Only downside, and there is little that the hotel could do, was that outside at this time of year we were rather plagued by wasps.
I would definitely return again.

Four of us stayed from last Sunday until today. The two river view rooms were very spacious and clean, the staff were very friendly and helpful at all times. Alan gave us advice on our daily jaunts with things to see and had a good sense of humour which always makes for a good stay.the food was very good with a restaurant and bistro.
Great Stay at last!

We've been trying to book in here for three years and we finally got a booking for our anniversary. We were in room 15 with a great river view. The bed was a very comfy King size which was perfect. Many hotels up north provide smaller doubles but this place has went that extra mile! The breakfast was excellent the next day too. Special mention to Jackson and Hazel who were the perfect hosts, they are a credit to the management and should get a bonus! We just need to make sure we book well in advance for our next stay.
Amazing food and great prices!

I had the pizza followed by sticky toffee pudding, my brother had a vegan pizza. I am a vegetarian and was amazed to see a dedicated vegetarian menu and even more amazed to see the vegan pizza on the menu!
Overall both the service and the food were exceptional, and not something you see too often. A very good meal in a lovely place.
