Belinda, our waitress, was lovely and could not have been more attentive! Cocktails were delicious. We had Haggis Bon Bons and Tempura Shrimp to start followed by the Chicken Burger and a Thai Green Curry. Could not fault any. Only issue we had was that the menu itself was incredibly small and the desserts did not appeal to us at all, which if they had would have definitely topped a perfect meal. Decor is lovely and modern, great night.

Was a baking hot day and we decided to have a pit stop here. What a great decision. My partner and I had Lavender Lemonades and the children had a couple of Ice Cream Floats. Just the ticket on a hot day. We also tried the home made custard creams and they were epic! I can highly recommend this place. Fantastic service as well.

An excellent evening by Gordon and his team. He made a special effort to cater for me (the only vegetarian at the event) and there were no complaints for the meat eaters either. The food was beautifully presented and the portion size was just right. And as for the whisky? Well... Andy did a fantastic job. It was a great idea to seat everyone around the same table and the band were highly entertaining. All in all a memorable night and to all the wives and girlfriends that didn't attend...seriously your loss!!! Aw thanks for those kind words . Really glad you enjoyed the evening , veggie food doesn't have to be all stuffed peppers .

Dropped in while out for a walk and although we're surprised to see the place almost empty it did not stop the excellent service and the friendliness of the staff. Nice meal with pleasant people. Highly recommend it for quality food and service.

Reviewed By sunbeamimp

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.
