Description: 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!

This was our first visit to Fern Cottage and is possibly the best meal we have had in Pitlochry. The restaurant has a cosy intimate feel and the food was outstanding. We had the fillet steak and the chicken dish. The steak came with fantastic hand cut crispy chips and a good selection of sauces. The steak was cooked to perfection. The chicken with madeira sauce was excellent and was accompanied by crushed potatoes and veg. We had the fishcakes to start which were superb and chocolate fudge cake and ice cream for dessert. Portions were generous and the waiting staff were polite, friendly and efficient. Booking is advised on weekends. This restaurant is highly recommended if you are looking for quality food in a relaxed setting. You will not be disappointed.

We stayed in Pitlochry for a couple of nights and this restaurant was by far the best placed we ate.

I had haggis to start and venison as my main. My boyfriend had steak. Both meals were great and the meat cooked well.

The service was great and our waiter (sorry didn’t get his name) went out his way to make sure we were satisfied and happy at all times.

Thanks - we’ll be back next time we are in Pitlochry.

Had a lovely lunch at this little gem, great atmosphere and good food. A well laid out restaurant with great access for wheelchairs, a small but we'll thought out lunch time menu to cater for all. Good facilities and friendly staff. Big thank you to Jackson for serving us, excellent host with plenty of local knowledge. Well worth a visit if your in the area.
