We initially turned our nose up at the menu on offer at the Old Smiddy, however our 10 year old pushed us to go there as he didnt fancy anything at another nearby restaurant and thankfully he did.

We walked into a lovely warm and cosy bistro style restaurant and were given a very warm welcome, the restaurant is run by a husband and wife team - who are both immensely friendly and good humored.

My wife and i chose the Spaghetti Napolitan, i had mine with meatballs and i can honestly say i have never seen my wife polish off a meal faster than me,it was fantastic very tasty and hearty, the food is all freshly prepared and home made and you can tell. Our kids had pizzas and they loved these too.

Best of all was the pudding between us we had 2 Waffles and ice cream and 2 of the most amazing Sticky Toffee puddings we have ever tasted - these are home made using an old recipe passed down.

Please try the Old Smiddy, im sure you wont be disapointed, this was the best meal we'd had in Killin over a 4 night stay and if it hadnt been our last night we would have eaten their the following night too.

Called in with friends when passing and enjoyed a very good fish and chip meal. After dark, so we could not appreciate the views, but the small restaurant was cosy and we received a friendly welcome. We would certainly go back, and we might try the B&B one day!

9 of us hungry for take away fish and chips near Killin and discovered this place on this site..phoned and pre ordered and they were all ready spot on time. Absolutely delicious they were too. What's more they do Gluten Free fish and chips (amongst other GF food) Hard enough to get in Edinburgh, astonished to get them here. And lovely people working here too. Just great!

Went here with my wife and daughter. What a lovely place. They were full but made space for us. The owners were fantastic and turns out the lady owner was from Paisley and lived round the corner from my wife's Mum.

We were made to feel so welcome and the food was bloody amazing, the sign outside was true about the fish and chips.

Just can't praise them enough and we will go back.

Beautiful scenery surrrounding the falls, which were lovely. Very windy the day we visited, but still worth the visit.
