Popped in for coffee n cake on our return journey to Falkirk. Excellent gingerbread, fresh coffee and good conversation made me want to linger longer! Pretty views over the loch too but my favourite sight is the wooden carving of Tintin at the door. My other half knows Herges of old and demanded... read more

Was disappointed at not getting the hand cut chips with my meal but everything was up to the usual high standard and when I telephoned the proprietor he explained all I had to do was ask for the hand cut chips and I'd get them. So if you prefer the hand cut chips to the insipid chilled ones just ask.... More

We returned after a nice meal a couple of weeks ago. Ordered off the light bites and main menu. Kids meals and light bites were good but main meal pasta was inedible! Pasta very under cooked, sauce way way to strong and luke-warm. Upon complaining nothing was done. No offer of an alternative or a reduction in the bill just... More

I'm truly sorry that you neither enjoyed our Tortelinni nor felt that we dealt with your complaint properly. Our staff are trained to visit every guest and ensure that everything is enjoyable. That is the time to ask for something to be done, not at the cash desk. We would always prefer that you had an enjoyable meal rather than... More

Tonight I chose the Scallops followed by Lamb and finished of with a Belgian Chocolate Mousse that I'd challenge anyone, not to... More

Had dinner here between Christmas and New Year with husband and son- no cooking, what a treat!!! Enjoyed our meal very much and the atmosphere was great. Soft lighting, cosy surroundings, great views of the loch. The staff are lovely, appropriately attentive and friendly. could have just tucked ourselves in for the night. Thanks
