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

Absolutely amazing place. Food was excellent I had soup, and coffee cake there for lunch, when staying nearby for a hen weekend.

We had walked the 14 miles from the ferry at the Trossachs pier to the ferry pier at Stronlachar, arriving at about 5pm. We had pre booked the ferry but when we arrived the proprietor expressed surprise that we were there for the ferry as they understood that there was no later ferry that day. Even though the cafe was... More

This is at end of Loch Katrine. Views inside (or outside) are fabulous. Cake was good, coffee was good. Nice little shop too. Friendly place. If you've never benn to this end of loch Katrine- its worth the long drive (the other nearby loch is my favourite scenic part of the uk). Visit this cafe!

Stopped here after a delightful walk along Loch Katrine- perfectly positioned for a post walk coffee. Excellent cake too, with the chocolate granola particularly fine. Friendly staff and a wonderful view. This place does what it does very well. I shall return to explore more of the menu. p.s. lovely toiletries in the loo too!

This is a lovely place to eat and enjoy the views. Staff were very welcoming and helpful and the food was great. If having coffee and cake or a meal you will not be disappointed.

I have visited here many times as part of a long cycle ride where this is just over the half-way mark. The thought of the delicious coffee and empire biscuits keeps me going from about 5 min after I set out from home! Very friendly and welcoming service. If visiting on a Sunday, please leave me just one empire biscuit!... More

We came all the way from Edinburgh for a coffee. We end up having a very tasty soup and nice sandwiches. Staff were all very friendly and helpful. Definitely recommend this place for a good food and interesting destination in really nice location.
