Warm, sociable surroundings in which to sample traditional Scottish food and a wee nip.
A short stroll up the Mound rewards you with the twinkling, inviting windows of the Whiski Rooms. Inside, there’s a friendly bar and separate restaurant with exposed brick wall, dark tables adorned with a thistle and large framed photos of whiskies to remind you of the importance of wetting your whistle. The menu thoughtfully reminds you, too, with mains such as the classic Scottish dish of haggis, neeps and tatties, helpfully paired with smoky and fiery whiskies such as Ardbeg Uigeadail. To start, the mushroom soup with truffle oil is thick, creamy and full of flavour, while desserts tick many of the traditional boxes to satisfy the sweet-toothed diner such as sticky toffee pudding and cranachan, served here with a deconstructed twist. Attracting tourists, locals, couples and groups of all ages, the spread of the menu from Perthshire venison to haddock and chips ensures that everyone is well-fed, and with a broad horizon of whiskies behind the bar for your next wee dram, well-watered too.
