Happened to stumble on this place when passing through Callendar. We thought we were going to get an average fish supper but once we looked at the menu we realised we'd stepped into a somewhat fancier establishment! Here are the pros and cons, based on our experience:

Pros:
- Good crispy fish and chips, definitely a cut above the usual chippy standard.
- A nicely varied menu with plenty of (very) fresh Scottish fish options.
- A contemporary feel to the restaurant decor.
- Friendly young guy at the frying counter.
- Home made tartare sauce.

Cons:
- Slightly aloof waiter who seemed a little bit unfriendly. For example, we were very wet from the rain outside and there was nowhere to put our jackets, so we put them on the back of the chairs next to our table. The waiter told us that he really needed the table and we had to move them. However, the table was never used while we were there. Perhaps they should consider getting a coat stand, as we were in a rather cramped wooden booth with nowhere to put our wet bags or coats.
- A bit pricey, with charges for extras such as mushy peas. Not a place for a high tea, more like a slightly fancy meal out.
- A bit cramped inside and not really all that comfy.

My host at a Callander B and B suggested this place had the best fish and chips anywhere so we tried it for an evening meal and the hand breaded haddock fillet was HUGE and just delicious. I gave my husband the chips from this huge meal and the chips were superb also. The salmon fish soup was also good. The place has a kitchen type ambience and was right in the middle of Callander, a place with no parking meters, Yeah!

This place does fantastic fish and chips, amazing as well given it's so far from the coast. It's up there with the Anstruther Fish Bar. Mhor Bread is also great- highly recommend the egg and bacon sandwich!

We had lunch at Mhor Fish and really enjoyed it. The best fish and chips of our trip. The haddock was fresh coated in a wonderful batter. We loved the chips and were really glad that we chose to have them with truffle oil and parmesan cheese. Wish we could lunch there often.

Had a good meal here. The food is fresh and well-prepared. A modern, utilitarian atmosphere in the dining room.
