We keep coming back to this lovely Hotel to eat. These days its bar food as we have a young daughter now, but the bar is very family friendly and the atmosphere is very pleasant. Views across the Lake are stunning any time of day all year. On this occasion, the food was particularly good, the Lake Trout was excellent,... More

The restaurant of Lake of Menteith hotel has a majestic view just by the shore of lake Menteith and happy customers enjoy the tranquillity of the scenery. Menu is relatively short but the two dishes we tried there (lake trout and prime steak burger) were very tasty (especially the trout), well presented and unexpectedly reasonably priced. The service was polite.... More

We stopped here for a light lunch whilst on a drive to The Trossachs. It was a lovely sunny day (yes they do occur in Scotland occasionally) so we sat outside with a fabulous view of the lake. The menu offered a good choice, but as we were going out for a meal later in the evening we opted for... More

We enjoyed our dinner here. The vegetarian pasta dish I had was kind of the usual (tomatoes, olives, a bit of chili), but it was well done. But my husband absolutely loved the trout special, caught in the lake that morning! I have since had to add trout to our shopping list. And I was really impressed with the apple... More

We recently met up for lunch with friends from the south and as always at the Lake Hotel the setting is superb, the ambience is good, the service extremely efficient and friendly - so to be disappointed with the food was a great shame. The quality of the fish in the ' Fish n' Chips' dish at a fairly pricey... More

We ate dinner here four times during our one week's stay on B&B in Aberfoyle. Sitting in the restaurant, which overlooks The Lake of Mentieth, was so relaxing. The menu was varied, good service and very good value for money.

Wonderful lakeside location. Good menu choice - the trout and the mussels are highly recommended. Staff are friendly and informal - just the right mix.

Disappointing dinner in the bar. No atmosphere and little interaction from staff - we came early evening for dinner - this shouldn't matter though as first impressions always count! Limited menu and drinks/ mixers too expensive. Not as good as on previous visits.

We didn't stay in the hotel, just ate at the restaurant and it was lovely. A really pretty setting right next to and overlooking the lake. Great big windows in the restaurant so everyone has a great view. Our food was delicious. Quite generous portions so we couldn't finish our mains after having had a starter too. Would definitely return.
