We stopped for lunch here on our way to Inverness and loved Callander so much we decided to come back for a few days. Of course we had to come here for Dinner as the lunch we had was so good. We weren't disappointed although we had a shock when we walked through the door as it had had a... More

So so good, and the staff where all very friendly, the owner even makes an... More

Having booked into a nearby B and B we walked into town to have something to eat. We walked by a few other premises and then decided to commit to go into the Crown. The outside is black and white and not all that appealing to my eye anyway, but as I said we decided to commit. On entering I... More

My wife and I ate here on our one night stay in Callander. When I have stayed in the town in the past, I have struggled to find good places to eat. We both had good meals and the service was excellent. The bar where you eat is now modern and bright and there were also families eating too. Recommend

After reading the reviews was expecting much better quality food, the steaks were ok and cooked as asked, but the venison casserol was dry and could have been anything, my son had the grilles hake which again could have been any white fish, the vegatables were rubbery and microwaved, desserts were dissapointing not sure what happened to the Eaton Mess...

My wife and I were attending a function locally so just really booked two nights here as we were requiring somewhere central. The Crown however was an added bonus to our short break. Do not be deceived by the Old pub appearance from the front the rooms have obviously been re fitted to a modern standard as has the bar/... More

We had a lovely and memorable meal and lovely service. We braved and tried the local fare of black pudding with goat cheese...YUM For those that are not so adventurous they have a great selection for any palate and other diners were commenting on how good their meal was.
