Surprise!

Called today while out for a wee while. Excellent service, friendly staff, and very reasonable prices. Normally when eating off the beaten track the prices are usually outrageous, very pleased to find sensible prices and a decent menu. Recommend this Café to anyone. We'll certainly call again!

At Stronachlacher Pier with great views over Loch Katrine. Family owned, they drive from Glasgow every day for 10.00 opening. Lunch is very good with good choice. Soup and sandwiches particularly good. A great advert for good service, good food and magnificent setting

Looking at the previous reviews we were a little apprehensive going here for lunch so we decided to pop in for coffee and a cake. I have to say we were very pleased indeed. The decor and lay out was ok with very pleasant views. In fact the general ambiance was the only reason I never gave this 5 stars.... More

Amazed to find the cafe open on a wintry February afternoon, but so glad it was. Excellent food and service and a lot of very satisfied customers. Thank you very much.

Great coffee and a really nice view of the loch. The meals are reasonably priced and really nice. Wasn't the easiest to find as some of the signs are a little misleading but defiantly worth it when we got there. Not to mention it was the only place anywhere in the area that was open during the off season.

We followed the signs for more than ten miles down a single track road and stopped for tea at five to four to be rudely told they were closing and would not serve us. This seemed very strange to us because if you advertise as a tearoom you should really be open at tea time. This sort of rudeness makes... More

Carole C, Manager at The Pier Tea Room, responded to this review

We have opened on a seasonal basis for a number of years and this winter we have endeavoured to stay open, weather permitting. Due to the short days at this time of year we have been closing at 4pm. As the days lengthen we are staying open until 5pm from March. We apologise if a member of staff seemed rude,... More

A nice and friendly welcome on arrival on the cold February day, with great views of the Loch while having your lunch. The food looked nice, well presented and tasted as good as it looked. Service was excellent. If your coming the Loch then this end is much better option.

I have been to stronachlachar via boat and car in the last year however had the first chance to eat in the pier cafe. I had built it up a bit in my head as I knew what it looked like and where it was however it was better than expected to eat there. Very good and friendly service as... More

Rather than stick with the throng at the coach party end of Loch Katrine we drove round to Stronachlachar at the West End and the difference was stellar, with no more than two other cars in the car park and a peace and quiet that let us really savour the tranquil atmosphere of the place. The Pier Tea Room is... More
