We were staying at a cottage in Killearn and were recommended The Old Mill as being a dog friendly pub. What we found was a tiny village pub with a vibrant atmosphere and the most fantastic food. We ate here twice, with our dog at...More

We had a splendid dinner at the Old Mill! The menue contained varied dishes and the food was very well prepared and nicely presented. Also the service was friendly so that we can heartily recommend to stop here for a meal.

We popped in after a muddy walk to be greeted by the friendliest staff you will ever come across. We sat outside in the gazebo-esque area which was lovely. If you sit outside you have to pay upfront. The food was served quickly. I got...More

The food was good. The service was below average. We felt uncomfortable, almost a bother. We sat in the restaurant but heard every word from the bar it was so loud. We wouldn't go ago.

We found this place after scouring the internet for somewhere to eat that was local rather than eating at a bigger chain. This is a lively local pub and we walked into a great atmosphere. The restaurant is separated from the bar so it is...More

The Old Mill in Killearn, formerly a weaving mill and now a characterful pub and restaurant within this charming 18th Century steading, complete with open fires, rustic touches and cosy snug. Our beer garden, with childrens play area, offers a very relaxed alfresco dining option for both lunch and dinner, which is always a winner when the sun is shining. During more typical Scottish weather you can warm up by the open fire with a wee dram. Our menu offers the best of local Scottish produce, responsibly sourced, lovingly prepared and skillfully presented.
