Really Great Dining.

Ate in the restaurant during a stay at the hotel. Food and wine selection was superb, and i've paid a lot more for inferior meals in other establishments. The serving staff were excellent. They were always on hand without being intrusive, and left just the right amount of time between courses. We commend the staff for making this meal enjoyable... More

it is several years since we were in the Trossachs but we went back to Poppies for a lovely evening meal with very good food and great service. The fish was very good as was the steak. The range of malt whiskies is the best I have come across in any Hotel in Scotland. Highly recommended.

The restaurant is run like a military campaign, resulting in friendly, but organised for the restaurant's convenience,service. The objective was to ensure synchronicity between wait staff, number of covers and kitchen operating criterion. Inevitably, as the evening wears on, times slip, without explanation or apologies from the owner/staff. This is somewhat sad, given that the food is very acceptable, especially... More

We were recommended this little restaurant by our B&B and it was good advice. A small but lively place with a great atmosphere. The service was skilled and friendly and the food was superb. A mixture of locally caught fish and local game; delicious. Highly recommended

Missed out last year when the Westerton just over the road was closed. John and Susan, who own and run Poppies, do so to a very high standard. Service excellent backed up by keen and helpful waitress. Nothing too much bother and the meals are cooked to perfection. Bottle of wine not cheap but so is the beer but for... More

We were made most welcome. Our coats were taken from us hung up. There was a good and reasonably priced selection. Service was good and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The dining room has a lovely view of the garden.

We ate at Poppies Restaurant because we were staying in the hotel associated with it. It's in a lovely house. You begin in the bar where you can have a drink if you like as you look over the menu and order your meal. When your meal is almost ready, you are seated in the dining room which has a... More
