Great central location for lunch. Very good value and good food. The room itself was not very attractive, looked as though it had been modernised and all the character had been stripped out.

Clean and the service was fine. The food was ok, but the steak was tough and slightly overcooked. Nothing special and we could have done better for the money.

Dear M R, Thank you for taking the time to write a review of our hotel. I am disappointed that you did not enjoy your food, our Chef cooked over 50 steaks over the weekend without any issues, unfortunately 20 seconds too long on the range can result in the steak not being cooked as requested, please accept our apologies...

We had an evening meal at this venue while recently visiting Callander. The quality of the food was excellent and the sevice was fast and efficient. However, because we visited the hotel at a busy time, we thought it was just a little noisy.

Ate here on recommendation of our b&b and after seeing other TripAdvisor reviews. It was fine but not overwhelming. Staff were friendly and pub is clean and welcoming, but my chicken was a little dry and my husband's duck was slightly over done. Nothing to complain about but not fantastic either. Maybe we were just unlucky?

Very good value for money, nice choice from the menu, freshly cooked pub grub. The bar was very busy on the Sunday night we were there so worth booking a table

We had a lovely meal and enjoyable evening at The Crown. The place had a nice ambience with friendly staff. The meal was freshly cooked and at a reasonable price. We will return if we stay in Callander again.

Visited The Crown Hotel today with my husband and 10 month old baby. Plenty of room around the tables for the buggy, asked for a high chair which was supplied. Unfortunately the high chairs are fabric as opposed to hard plastic and they where quite dirty as these ones are difficult to clean I find. Ordered food at the bar,... More

Dear nic2609, Firstly, I am pleased that you enjoyed your food and that you showed a huge degree of patience waiting on your food. I can only apologise for the condition of the high chair, they do need replacing and I have ordered two new wooden ones this morning. I can only apologise for the delay in getting your food... More

If you're visiting Callander be sure to go to the Crown Hotel for food and drink. Quality of the food is excellent and selection of drinks is great including 2 real ales. The owner is very attentive and looks after his guests well. A fine place for great food,drink and vocal entertainment. You'll not be disappointed.

With a warm welcome from the owners and a good choice of beers and food. Live entertainment with Mac A Din on The Sunday evening was fab.
