Eating around Auchterarder

From delightful Cafe's and coffee shops, Bistro's, Country Pubs and Hotel Restaurants to Michelin dining... there is something to appeal to every taste and budget in Auchterarder and Dunning area.   Here are our favourites!

The Kirkstyle Inn

The Kirkstyle Inn Dunning

Nestled in the heart of historic Dunning Village  ( 3 miles from Otter Lodge) is this wonderful little "pub in the country".  On offer you will find fine wines, excellent ales and food that should surprise. Traditional in appearance with the best of Scottish hospitality, roaring fires, proper old furniture, that you might want to take home! The finest spirits produced in this country and from overseas.   All that together with a delightful team of waiting staff.  Jamie, the owner-chef creates a welcome that will draw you back time and time again.

Owned and operated by two friends from the wine industry who want to bring great food and brilliant wine to the good people of Auchterarder, Delvino's is the closest eatery to Otter Lodge - at the foot of the High Street.    Bistro Restaurant with a warm and welcoming atmosphere.   Very bust and booking ahead essential for evenings in particular.    Also my favourite coffee!


Max & Ben's Bistro

Max & Ben's Bistro is ideally situated in the middle of the High Street - mixing traditional and modern cuisines - such as amazing steaks and award winning burgers, to good old fish n chips, Chicken Maryland, salads and much more.

Very busy - so must always book ahead in the evenings.

Cafe Mimi's

Cafe Mimi to the flower shop on the High Street ....s the most charming and delight filled little cafe with that extra sparkle!   Amazing cakes and sandwiches, breakfast, lunches, coffees....and for something really special book for their vintage afternoon tea - as good as Gleneagles  but at only £14.95 pp is a fraction of the cost!   Victoria the owner and Morag are always on hand with friendly service.

The Chocolate Galley

The Chocolate Gallery - middle of the High Street is a fabulous Cafe, Artisan Handmade Chocolatier and eatery which also offers chocolate making workshops which make a great gift and / or experience!     Lovely coffee and a scone but soup lunches are also to die for!   And I can never leave without buying some chocolates for a special treat!
