The Smithy

Taigh a Ghobha - The Smithy - has ceased trading as a licensed cafe/restaurant due to owner retiring.

Been twice now and loved it both times. Food is so fresh and tasty. Parking can be a little tricky so take that into account. But its just down from the castle or up from shopping centre so if you can't get outside, you can walk! Well worth it

The Grill by HW

Locally bred, speciality Wagyu beef and Wagyu crosses, using indigenous breeds served in a classic grill setting and matched with quality wines and beers.

Reviewed By Pete B

The Grill was simply exceptional on every level. The steak was one of the best (if not the best) steaks I have ever had! Magnificent flavor!!! The visit to the grill was definitely elevated by the incredible knowledge and warm hospitality offered by Christopher. If you visit the Grill, please ask Christopher for his advice on Wine, Whiskey or Food. He is an encyclopedia of knowledge on all three subjects and had a rare gift to describe complex topics (like whiskey varieties) in simple and easy to understand lessons.If you are near Stirling - make sure to visit the Grill. You will not be disappointed.

We rediscovered the Birds and Bees following our sons Wedding here at the beginning of September. We were very impressed with the venue and the food so we came back for dinner last week. We were not disappointed. Excellent food, excellent service in a relaxed atmosphere. It can get very busy so we would recommend that you book to avoid disappointment. Highly recommended.

We visited after a day at Stirling antlers and before going to the nearby university for a talk from Gordon Buchanan. We all thoroughly enjoyed the food we each had something different but all agreed it was lovely, nice friendly staff although a long wait for the food to come, 2 other tables were seated after us but their food came first which was not well received by 4 hungry waiting customersHey there,Thanks tor your great review!Sorry about the timing of your food delivery, depending on your order some meals take longer to cook. Highland chicken can take up to 30mins to cook and if your table ordered this, that may be the reason.I hope this helps?We look forward to seeing you again.The Westy team.

My hubby and I went in and ordered drinks and lunch waited too long. Finally served and lunch was small and uninteresting. Not much atmosphere just a cafe with not enough vegetarian or vegan choices.

Our second visit to the Gallery.Last time the food was excellent, though the service was informal and unsupervised.This time the food was abysmal, but the servers were clearly being advised and encouraged by supervisors.I guess it is hit and miss, but whatever the quality, it is good value (especially if you have wine), and this time we felt happy to be doing a civic service!It is wonderful for these young people to have the opportunity to serve genuine customers.We will definitely go again. (not a complaint, but the wifi didn't work)Hi Mary Thanks for taking the time to feedback to us. As you will no doubt have been aware we have literally just had a brand new intake of students. On looking at review date this would have been our students first week. Although this is not an excuse , we will take on board your feedback. We do look forward to welcoming you another time and providing you a positive experience.

The Hideaway Cafe

Reviewed By GPollock

We visited the cafe on the 20th July 2019. We ordered the balsamic steak sandwich for three people. The steak sandwich was unedible as the thinly cut steak was extremely tough and over done. My Mum and Dad diidn't eat the steak sandwich because of the nature of the steak. We complained to the waitress and asked her to pass my Mum's comments onto the chef about the sandwiches. When my parents went to pay the cost of the steak sandwiches was not waived nor did a manager come over to apologise to my parents or rectify the situation. A dissapointing experience paricularly as we have had good lunches in the past. The staff were extremely busy on Saturday, however, this should not deter from good personal care from the manager on duty at the time, particularly as the lunch was not up to standard.

Bed linen was beautifully clean and crisp. Beautiful old property which has been refurbished. Located about 3 miles from Stirling so a car is really essential. Lots of free parking on site.Full Scottish breakfast of a high standard was included in the price.Staff were very friendly and helpful.Unlike a number of old properties we have stayed in it was kept warm at all times.There were a few cobwebs which housekeeping need to attend to but nothing to concern us.Overall impressed and we will visit again.
