“Completes the Crieff experience”
Reviewed October 8, 2012

My girlfriend and I visited Crieff for her birthday, and as we walked around the High Street for the first time, we decided that we couldn't call our trip successful if we walked past a pub called "The Curly Coo". It was the name that got us through the door, but the friendly service kept us there until closing time.

Mandy does her very best to make sure your experience is a good one, and is as much an expert on whisky as she is on cheeky comebacks. The patrons are all friendly, often asking if anyone fancies a game of darts. The drinks were great, but not as good as the people and the atmosphere.

“What a great place.”
Reviewed September 16, 2012

The range of whiskies, the friendly atmosphere of the customers both local and visitors make this little bar a fantastic experience. The extensive knowledge of Mandy the owner only goes on to extend the pleasure of this place is one the the highlights of a weekend away with my brother for golf and whisky in Crieff. I would recommend this place not only to any whisky lover, but also the whisky curious. Not only have we come back again, we will come back again, and again, and again.

“Can't wait till our next trip to Crieff”
Reviewed September 8, 2012 via mobile

My mum and dad stay in Crieff and we have always wondered about this cute looking bar at the top of the town.. what a lovely surprise!! Had a lovely evening chatting to Mandy the landlady, who gave excellent advice on what malts to try from her vast selection. Only wish we were still there for the whiskey tasting event next weekend! Will definitely return on our next trip up north.

“Nice little bar”
Reviewed August 30, 2012

Nice bar for a quiet drink (we were the only ones in). You can sit at the window and watch the world go by. We only stayed for one drink but would definetly go back next time we are in Crieff.

“Nice Whisky-Tasting”
Reviewed August 26, 2012

We went there as we found no evening event at our hotel, so explored Crieff to find out more about possible spots.
After leaving one pub due to bad service and even worse drinks, we entered the Curly Coo Bar. The owner Mandy was very friendly and were happy to welcome 10 people as her guests.
About 120 whiskies are waiting at the Bar and she offered to give us an overview about Highlands, Speysides, Islays etc.
The next evening we came back with 22 people (we were on a holiday trip by bus and Crieff was our central point for daily trips) and had a great evening with a lot of several whiskies to taste and again a very friendly and enthusiastis Mandy - thank you so much for this experience and we can only advice to visit this spot whenever you come to Crieff!
