What a fabulous place this is to stay and eat. We thought it was such a great find and were really sorry when the break was over and we had to leave. The staff are all really good at their jobs and you could mistake any of them as the owners, as they take so much interest in you as... More

My husband and I stumbled upon the Portcullis while visiting Stirling Castle. We ducked in to get out of the rain and have a hot meal and ended up staying in one of their rooms for the next two days! From the moment we stepped into the pub, we knew it was a special place. We were greeted by a... More

Great hotel with a warm friendly atmosphere. The hotel is ideally located, but a little tight for parking. The food and drink was very good as was the staff. Not a lot we can say negative with regards to this place and would most definitely recommend it to those looking for an ideal place to eat and stay.

Very welcoming and knowledgeable about beers. If you enjoy real ales you'll really appreciate this place. Staff are friendly and welcoming. If you enjoy history Stirling Castle is right next door! Food is good too.

Because this is a converted OLD school it gives the feeling and character of the the Castle next door from creaking floorboards to stone castle style walls on the way to the rooms. The room we had was in character with the ambiance of the building it is 3 star but take in where you are and accept the water... More

This place is right next to Stirling castle and I ate there. The food was basic but very tasty with good portions. The staff are really nice and would recommend to visit. There is a nice courtyard and the bar area is nice.

My Stay at the Portcullis was after a very long drive, so when I arrived in the evening I was starving! I was welcomed by the very friendly and helpful staff that booked me in and showed me to the bar / dining area. So I could order an evening meal. I ordered from the menu a Portcullis Cheeseburger. It... More

Ended up in the portcullis recently just for a drink or two and was impressed with the bar staff who were friendly and helpful. I liked the decor even if it seemed a bit dated, and the history of the building which was on a plaque on the wall outside! Although I didnt try the food, the menu seemed very... More

Our family of 5 stayed at the Portcullis for 1 night while driving from St. Andrews to Edinburgh. Lynne and her son were so helpful. Our original B&B arrangements at another place were cancelled due to a "family problem" (not ours). We needed 3 rooms for the 5 of us, but they were all right next to each other. The... More
