We popped in for a morning cuppa before getting the boat Didn't find the people very warming I asked for a coffee with skimmed milk to be told they only had full cream so I said I would go without to be told very abruptly by a man in there to water it down if I didn't want full cream... More

Our son lives along the single track road that is the only access to the pier, doubt we would have known about it otherwise. It's well worth the drive though, the cafe overlooks the loch and is a great place for a drink. The boat also serves the pier and given better weather would no doubt be a nice trip.

Set in the remote village of Stronachlacher, The Pier Tea Room is a welcome oasis. You can get here either by car along a single track road via Aberfoyle & Loch Ard and it is situated at the top of Loch Katrine or by the boat cruise from the bottom of Loch Katrine. The staff are very friendly and the... More

Had a very good lunch with my fiancee. Would highly recommend stopping for a wee bit of food if you are near by. The scenery from the cafe is stunning. Will definitely be coming back. Staff also very friendly and they have WiFi.

My husband and I were very pleasantly surprised at this lovely tearoom. We thought it would a small tearoom as the boat only stops there a couple of times a day but we found a lovely tearoom with a conservatory extension giving everyone panoramic views across Loch Katrine and serving a very good lunch. If going from Aberfoyle it is... More

I had broken down nearby and they very kindly let me use their phone (there is no mobile phone signal in this remote area) and looked after me while I waited for roadside assistance. Great sandwich and coffee, and very friendly dog. Highly recommended. Free Wifi to boot.

What a find this is. Really lovely food, helpful and efficient staff and a setting second to none. Having had chicken and roasted pepper ciabatta for lunch we returned next day for excellent carrot cake in the morning. Everything was really first rate, even the long drive down a single track road from Aberfoyle is at least very scenic.

I would love to give this place 1 out of 5 to put people off, so that we can have it all to ourselves, but that wouldn't be fair. However, the staff are very friend, the place faces Loch Katrine and their Stronie Beef Burger... yums! Nuff said! However, one thing that might truly put people off is getting there... More
