I had a delicious meal with my two daughters on Friday evening. The staff are friendly and helpful and the views are amazing!

My wife and I have just returned after a delightful meal surrounded by the beautiful scenery of the Trossachs, with the sun setting over Loch Venachar. We have enjoyed two meals there this week - one a light lunch of cullen skink (a thick Scottish soup made with smoked fish) accompanied by excellent granary bread, the other tonight's dinner. My wife had an unusual but delicious goat's cheese crème brûlée starter, while I enjoyed some quality Shetland mussels, then we shared a platter of interesting local cured meats, with different breads and chutneys. The house wines were very acceptable too (I chose a quality Cornish cider for lunch). All this was complemented by welcoming, friendly, knowledgeable and attentive service. We plan to return whenever we visit this beautiful part of Scotland.

Spent an afternoon here with my mum ,,,, wonderful views over the water ..... we shared a very nice bottle of Merlot .. we know the times for food serving can be limited but what we saw the menu looked scrummy. Staff very pleasant and well worth the drive out stunning views

Visited twice. First for coffee and cake, second for dinner . Both times the food was fantastic. House wine was superb as well as the service and the beautiful location.
It's No. 1 in the area for a reason, well deserved.
