We have now been to this restaurant several times and it just gets better.
The place is small, but welcoming and has a big fire - great for our Scottish weather
On our first vist we had afternoon tea, sandwiches were great, scones and cakes yum
Second visit it was cold and wet. We arrived at the restaurant aroung noon and it was really busy. The waitress gave us a seat on the sofa till a table was free. This was the first time we had the soup - it was fantastic - we have since tried 3 different soups all just as good. Bowls are of a good size and home made bread yum. You can't ever just have soup... has to be soup and a sweet and they are fantastic - home made with a choice of cream, ice cream and custard. Haven't quite worked my way through the sweet menu as yet but working on it.

We popped into this place when doing some shopping Callander.
We were four adults and two children ( 2 and 9 months).
They did appear quite busy but there were a few tables available, two double tables in a corner sited together with s highchair would have suited us fine, the waitress however had other ideas! She said the high chair would be an obstruction...in a corner ??
Anyway she suggested we go across the street which we did and spent our money there.
Their loss.

The Old Bank is the first place we take friends and family when they come to visit Callander. The cakes are freshly made, the slices generous, and the taste divine...

We used to order one slice between two, but the cake is just too good to share!

It's a lovely, friendly wee restaurant, and a table close to the open lit fire is the ideal place to spend a chilly Sunday afternoon with the people (and the cake) you love.

We stumbled across this little Restaurant on our way to a hotel in the area. Although initally we stopped just for a short break in our journey we were tempted to lunch and I am so glad we did. The aroma within the place will certainly tempt your taste buds. Plenty on offer on menu and on Daily specials board. We were lucky to get a seat so be careful to go along early enough or be prepared to wait.

We called in at Callander on a Saturday afternoon (to be fair it was a snowy Saturday afternoon in January) just looking for a coffee. Tried two coffee shops on the main street, Taste of the Trossachs and Mhor, both just closed (4pm) so we went in to the Old Bank expecting the same thing. We were met by very friendly staff and the restaurant had log fire burning, full menu available with good choice including gluten free items.
Although we only had coffee and scones (good coffee) we were very impressed, particularly by the friendly and helpful staff. I would certainly go back for a full meal if we were in the area.
