The Meikleour Arms
Under new management since spring 2013, this historic coaching inn has a tranquil setting in the conservation of Meikleour, not far from the famously huge beech hedge. A distinctive porch with tree-trunk pillars and a couple of small benches leads through to the cosy bar on one side and wood-lined dining room to the other. Ales include bespoke brews from West and Inveralmond, while the menu has pub classics interspersed with seasonal offerings such as game or mushrooms from the estate and a few engaging snacks and starters including a homemade black pudding Scotch egg. Families are welcomed and there's a traditional roast on Sundays, while the inn also has five rooms popular with visiting fishermen.
