Hit and miss food.. (Mainly hit!)

We visited Callender on a Saturday lunchtime and decided to eat at the Crown, based on the outside menu board. It was friendly and welcoming, although the interior was not what we expected. We all had the home made Leek and Potato soup, and were not disappointed! Possibly the best I have ever... read more

Had a lovely meal here on a Saturday evening. The venison casserole I had was excellent. The pub had seemed quite modern when we popped in the day before and we were surprised how different it felt when it was full of diners. Live music too.

Called in for lunch but were disappointed that there was little on the menu for a light lunch however we opted for starters, bowl of soup and bread and Chicken strips which were huge and value for money but a little greasy, with so many places to eat in Callander was surprised that they didn't cater much for the lighter...

Visited here for lunch whilst holidaying in the area. Decor is nice, seems quite new inside but lacked a bit of comfort and cosyness when throwing down with rain outside. The lunch we ordered was nice and the price reasonable, so definitely recommend here based on that. Felt a little uncomfortable in there at times, quite a few locals were... More

Dear Joanna, Firstly, thank you for taking the time to review our hotel, we are delighted you enjoyed your meal and considered it good value. I am somewhat bemused by the fact 'the locals' made you feel unwelcome. The fact that you refer to a group of Chinese people makes our recollection of the day more clear as this is... More

This is a Pub based eatery. From the outside does not seem to a quality eaterie. The inside is clean and tidy and very functional. The food is however top notch. Well presented, good portions. Cooked to order. Staff and owner manager very pleasant.
