The Kenmore Hotel's Grill Room may be in the oldest inn in the country (est. 1572) but the restaurant is a thoroughly modern operation. Housed in a large rear extension, the dining room's panoramic view through the wrap-around windows is mesmeric: the mighty Tay meandering past, the 18th-century bridge, wooded hillsides – enough ingredients to warrant multiple visits in themselves. Specialising in grills, and utilising a charcoal Inka oven, the kitchen offers dining that holds its own against such an outlook, from popular starters – scallops, prawn cocktail, Stornoway black pudding - to well-handled favourites such as battered Scrabster cod and Harris salmon, plus grilled options of Scottish beef many ways including T-bone, porterhouse and chateaubriand cuts as well as lamb racks and spatchcocked birds. Flourishes on the plate, smart service and, of course, that impressive vista, give the place a sense of occasion at any time of day. Booking for weekends, particularly for non-residents, is advised (though a separate bar offers unreserved dining), while good-value lunchtime deals and Sunday kids-eat-free offers, make it popular with passers-by and locals.
Scotland's Oldest Inn (1572) rests at the mouth of the River Tay in the conservation village of Kenmore. Poet's Bar hosts a poem by Rabbie Burns on the chimmey breast and our Restaurant and Public Bar offer panoramic view of the surrounding countryside.Rooms may be in our lodge which is situated across the Village Square from the main hotel building
