We spent three nights here in July. The main reason for our visit to Scotland was to attend the Open Golf Championship at St Andrews, but this was the nearest place we could afford to stay! I would describe it as a pub with rooms rather than a hotel, but you had all you needed here, especially excellent food in... More

Dropped in for lunch on Saturday with the family and managed to get a table straight away. Staff were friendly and it was interesting to be the only Scottish family in the lounge. Made us all feel that we were still on holiday. Menu selection was a blast from the past and fairly basic, which is not always a bad... More

Just outside the castle this lovely old building is worth visiting. Great views and a nice walk up, though maybe not for those with walking difficulties. On the way you'll pass many sites of history and interest. Good value food awaits and depending on the weather this can be taken outside.

Steps from the entrance to Stirling Castle. Clean but small rooms, decent meal and very warm, welcoming staff. Beautiful views of the area and great location. Parking available right out front. Nice place to stay.

Had a lunch here with family. 6 of us with different tastes. We were there early so the steak pies weren't ready yet but would be finished by the time we finished starters. Retro menu but the cheese and pineapple salad was fantastic. All different vegetables. And a large portion. I just had that which comes with chips and there... More

4 of us went for dinner on a Friday night. Food was delicious with huge portions! I had one of the specialities and the remainder of the group had steaks. Very good quality, well presented & quickly served. Staff were nice but probably overstretched - took a long time to get drinks/liqueur coffees. All in all a lovely visit, we'd... More

We had a wonderful stay at the Portcullis. It's in a perfect location at the top of the hill in Stirling, just below the castle. We have a marvelous view from our room of the plain below, the castle above, and the William Wallace monument. A bit difficult to get to the rooms and there is no lift, but we... More

I eat here often and the staff are always happy to sre you.The food is always superb. The lasagne is my favourite but everything on the menu is tasty. Home cooked food at its best. Always a great atmosphere and it's even better when the coal fire is on in the winter.
