Description: Great food and whisky bar in the heart of the Trossachs. Good places don't need loads of words. You just got to try it! Serving dinner from 17:30 every day, closed on Wednesday. Open for lunch on Sundays. Private lunch bookings are available, functions and small weddings too. Lovey lawn at the front of the building. Great to watch the world go by, with a glass of wine and nice dinner.

If you can cook mussels (starter) so that they are done but still succulent, if you can cook porc medaiilons (main) so that they are just not well done but have that little pink inside, then you are a very good chef. Everything was prepared very well. The seared scallops (starter) are usually very tasty in this part of the UK, but also the chocolate fudge with vanilla icecream was great. Everything brought with a smileand with kindness. To finish our dinner we could select a nice whiskey from the vast collection that is available in Poppies. I found a rare Brora 30 years old whiskey. Delicious. Very good price:quality ratio.

The next time you go on a day trip to Callander, treat yourself, your friends, your family, whatever by visiting Poppies Hotel where you will enjoy an excellent Lunch.
To best describe the layout and ambiance of the Restaurant I suggest that you visit their detailed website at www.poppieshotel.com where you will see photographs of the welcoming Bar with it’s beautiful solid oak counter and it’s well stocked gantry with an array of at least 100 fine single malt whiskies.
The Staff and Proprietor, John made us feel very welcome on our arrival.
The Dining Room is through from the Bar and it is very well laid out. It is spacious and pristine with brilliant white table covers, fresh flowers, comfortable seating and well designed decoration.
The overall effect gives the Dining Room a comfortable feeling and is only the beginning of a great dining experience.
The Lunch menu has a broad spectrum of meats, fish and game with a good choice of seven items for each course. The plates of food were well prepared, looked good and tasted excellent.
The wine list is extensive with prices, starting at around £16 per bottle and upwards.
I really only write about good experiences and Poppies is a little gem that having found it, I plan to visit more regularly.
Note that there is a small Car Park in front of the Hotel.
