“Not the best decor but good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 23, 2014

The outside of this place does need some TLC and the inside is a bit basic. However, I'm glad that we didn't let that put us off as we had a good meal at the Inn. The food was freshly cooked and tasty and the staff were friendly and helpful.

“Surprisingly Amazing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2014

While having a weekend away with my husband we decided to visit this little pub as there was not much choice of places to eat in the area. I was not really expecting much as we had to eat in the pub part as the Bistro was fully booked. I ordered the soup which was Cauliflower and Spring Onion that was amazing. Hubby ordered the Haggis which was a first for him and he loved it. For our mains I had an Onion and Brie tart which was one of the best things i've ever had and hubby had Chicken. We would definitely return the staff are lovely and the meal was 10 out of 10.

“Might be nice if it was open!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 27, 2014

We have eaten here on a number of occasions, when staying at the Forest Holiday log cabins, and walking into Strathyre. However, today after completing the same fairly lengthy walk, and anticipating at the very least a decent pint, we were absolutely astounded to arrive at 12:30 to find it closed! A youth appeared from within the bar to advise us that they did not open "until about 1:30 - 2:0'clock". I find this incredulous, especially at the peak of the holiday season.
