We stayed in Gartmore House Hotel where evening meals weren't served. So we ended up walking the few minutes to Gartmore Village.

The Black Bull Inn was a small place, but the food is second to none.

I had the Sea Bass and seasonal veg and it was the best dish I had tasted in quite a while. The other half had Home Made Steak and Ale Pie and he too said it was the best dish he had in a while.

Service was a bit slow, but very much worth it.

They had pictures hanging on the wall that you could buy too and it was a nice idea, proved a conversation point as well .



Well done and thank you for a lovely few hours.

Visited this eatery last night which was recommended to us and the food was great. Nice choice on the menu and the staff were very friendly. My only gripe was i couldn't have a sweet, which looked scrumptious, S there was too much in the main course. Yes I know I shouldn't have ate it all to leave room for a sweet, but it was so good I couldn't stop!!!! Would certainly recommend and visit the next time I am in the area.

Room Tip: Never stayed here. Only visited to eat

Dropped in for a pint with Mrs W. A wet Friday night in Stirlingshire. Our luck to find a great atmosphere, great beer and the US Open on TV. Our Idea of heaven. If you want to chill and have the buzz of conversation around you, you couldn't do better than the Black Bull.

We had walked up to Gartmore from the Old Drymen Road car park in the Queen Elizabeth Forrest. Our near three mile walk almost brought us to disappointment because the bar seemed to be closed. Just as we were about to walk back to the car, a 4x4 swung into the square. "We are about to open" said the diver and passenger.
A few moments passed and we were seated in the warm and comfortable bar beside a roaring fire.
Diet Cola each and a burger for the Administrator and Steak Pie for me.
We expect to return to this welcoming place.

I stayed here over Easter bank holiday with my partner and 2 dogs. The staffed helped carry up the dog kennel and ensured that we had everything we needed to settle in. The room was very spacious, heaters were switched on and warmed up the room for our arrival. Tea and coffee facilities were available in the room. The meals we had in the evening were top marks (as usual) and the full Scottish breakfast was very filling, there was cereal, fresh fruit and juice available too. This was not our first visit and definatley not be our last... See you in July Andrew!

Went for a birthday meal to this place, as we were staying at a local holiday park. It was recommended, and we were not disappointed. The staff/proprietors were very friendly and helpful, and the fresh food was excellent. I'd recommend the Scallop and Stornoway Black Pudding starter.
