Had lunch here today for the first time, had tried to book once before but it was full!

It's a lovely building, with a car park at the back. It's recently refurbished, so everything looks brand new and very clean. No complaints about the food, 5 of us cleared our plates! Service was a tad slow, but the waiter apologised for this. At least we know it was fresh! I felt my salad was a tad pricey at nearly £10, but everything else was pretty good value. We would 100% go back, and have infact recommended to a friend who plans to go next week

Went for lunch, friendly and quick service. Nice simple menu. Baked potato was simple but excellent. Will definitely be back.

My family ate here a couple of weeks ago and we wish we had gone elsewhere. The service was very slow and the food was incredibly disappointing. We waited over an hour between the starters and the main courses, which is a long time, with a 6 & 8 year old! My husband ordered the "Roast of the Day", sadly it looked as if it had been lying for the day before being "zapped" in the microwave. The gravy was a gloopy stodge and the "Yorkshire puddings" turned out to be one which was not even cooked in the middle. It was a disappointing end to the weekend and rather sad, as this is the only eating establishment within easy walking distance from home. It would have been nice to think this would be a regular place to come for a meal but we won't be returning.

Ate here recently with the family- good friendly service, nice little pub (though if I were the owner, I would replace the AstroTurf at the front with real grass!). Fish was decent and special mention goes to the excellent steak- I have eaten worse in expensive steakhouses. Pleasingly they have three real ales on draught. The Torbrex Red Ale in particular is excellent.

This pub majors on food rather than drinking, so the bar area itself is relatively small though the atmosphere is pleasant and friendly.

All in all, an excellent place to eat and drink.

We're staying at a B & B down the road and it was suggested we eat at the Inn, from the time we walked in everyone we can in contact with was wonderful. So friendly, helpful and answering all our questions well. We had Haggis Medallions which were delightful, The haddock fillet (fish and chips) and smoked fish chowder all very very good. Great beers and of course good single malts. Darren the manager and brother n law of the owners was just a delightful man.
The Inn has been a Pub Pub for a long time when they bought it and completely renovated it. It's clean and charming and if we were staying longer in Stirling we'd eat at the Inn again
