First class service. First Class food. I had the Chicken with Haggis it was fantastic. My son had the Steak Pie he hardly spoke throughout his meal which tells me everything. He only ever shuts up when he is enjoying his food. The only downside to our visit was that the heating in the dining room had been switched off.... More

Food wasn't great I ordered fish (Haddock)and chips, When the fish came out it was a tiny piece of fish in a very thin batter (I suspect they are halving fillets) When we cut into the fish it was rock hard, i was shocked ive never seen a fish so overcooked in my life.

Very friendly, clean with good food and choice. It caters for both modern and traditional palates. Wide selection of drinks are available. They have music nights and the cost of meals and drinks is reasonable. Service very good and it retains a pleasant atmosphere. The old Rectory also has accommodation, but we have not stayed because we stay just over... More

This was a very welcoming place to eat. They suffer slightly, I suspect, from having an enormo-pub on the other side of the road, whereas really punters would be better off eating here as I did. I enjoyed the Trossachs Trout and a pudding, and enjoyed talking with the the father of the owner who was running the pub quiz... More

The food is good quality British food at a reasonable price, though beer is limited in selection. The portions are quite large, so you either need to be really hungry, or do not have a starter.

The menu is vast and all the food is delish. A speedy service and a range of whiskeys that you would not grow bored of. A warm welcome from the owners and locals
