“July 2014”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2014

After travelling from Skye we decided to stop half way in Arrochar before returning home to Lancashire - we took a walk from our hotel and found the village inn. The restaurant was very busy but the lady serving kindly took our name and advised the wait would be an hour so we got drinks and sat in the beer garden enjoying the view over loch long. After waiting only approx 30mins we were called to our table. We ordered two courses of the scottish menu at £11, we had macaroni cheese ans mackies icecream the food and the service were both really good and we really enjoyed our final meal on the last night of our holiday

“Fabulous Views over the Loch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2014

Busy place in the summer and you are recommended to book if you want to dine. The food was pretty good and the service excellent with friendly and efficient staff. Loved sitting outside overlooking the Loc with a glass of something... perfect setting

“A well needed stop”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2014

My friend and I were out for cycle around the Lochs and stopped here for some refreshments. A large pot of tea and scrambled eggs and bacon on toast went down very well. The Inn offers a very comfortable stop in a wonderful setting. Friendly service too.

“Lovely people and lovely meals”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2014

We had the pleasure of finding this lovely friendly wee place when we were staying locally on holiday - first day stopped for lunch and hubby had his first every Cullen Skink - which he proclaimed to be the best thing he had ever tasted (I have made it for him myself since we came home ;0) I had a very tasty veggie burger (which wasn't really a burger - it was a thick slice of goats cheese, a flat field mushroom and sliced courgettes on a burger bun with lovely home made chips in a wee bucket on the side ;0) we booked to come back for dinner on the wednesday and were not disappointed by our lovely meal then either ;0) Will definitely come back here again next time we are staying in the area x
