Ok, let's keep it simple. For a well priced, 'fine dining' rural lunchtime experience, it doesn't get a whole lot better than this. A small but perfectly formed menu, in convivial surroundings. Refined dishes of mooli smoked salmon, perfectly cooked pigeon & blackpudding, lamb rump, sea bream, confit duck leg presse, followed by sweet rhubarb sorbet and smooth dark chocolate.... More

We were lucky enough to be given a voucher for this restaurant with rooms for Christmas. We booked in for an overnight stay and dinner. The room was just the lovely and despite the hotel being on a busy through road - we slept soundly with no noise. It may also had something to do with the delicious meal and... More

This place should be a feted restaurant in a major city. Except it is an excellent oasis of incredible food in a small village, for miles from Crieff. The food is extraordinary, the service attentive. Only 50 minutes from Renfrew. You won't regret the drive.

We had an unscheduled lunch here, and although we arrived quite late, we were made very welcome and not rushed. Indeed the service during our visit was attentive but not pushy. The food was excellent with plenty of choice of both starters and main course. My trout,orange and pink peppercorn terrine starter was delicious. The venison crocquets we had as... More

Had a wonderful lunch here yesterday, the choice from the menu (£15.50 two courses) was very exciting and very difficult to decide what to choose. The slant towards local produce with a twist of French cooking ensures quality and flavours are at their fullest. Trout terrine was amazing and my loin of venison outstanding and dessert of Apple tartan was... More

Absolutely loved our stay here for our wedding anniversary. An absolutely outstanding meal, with friendly & helpful people, and exceptionally good value. We will definitely be back and would recommend it to anyone who appreciates excellent Scottish food and hospitality.

We had a Wednesday lunch here with friends. The staff were perfect, the dining room is comfortable if slightly dark; we liked the fishing theme! The food was very, very good. Perfectly seasoned, very well presented, every flavour distinct and well balanced. The trout, orange & pink peppercorn terrine was a delicious starter and my sea bream main course was... More

We were treating ourselves to a meal out before we returned home after a week of beautiful weather in Crieff. The food was excellent . My husband said that he hadn't seen me finish three courses for a very long time. We eat out as often as we can but I think this was the best meal I've had for... More

This restaurant in a very small town was one of the highlight of our tour of Scotland and Ireland. In this small restaurant in this little town, an excellent French chef cooks and does wonders. (Turns out he is married for a long time to a local woman who runs the hotel.) We both started with the Asian inspired noodles... More

This is a small extremely cozy and excellent little restaurant. The food is prepared by a French chef and it's delicious and beautifully presented. We were greeted with lots of warmth and felt immediately at home. It's an excellent non pompous restaurant for a nice cozy dinner. I definitely recommend it!
