Lunch with my parents. Good menu, more gastropub than pub. The fire and the ambience reminded me of what it must have been like days gone by.

We stayed 2 weeks in Killin. This was one of our staples for Lunch. Do note that it's a small place and popular, so it fills up fast.

What a lovely find :) staff were so welcoming and the food was very nice. Would recommend to anyone. We were lucky to get a table without booking but a lot of people turned up when we were there and had to be turned away because they were full

Lynn, the owner, was great. Knowing I had interest in family history, she called Grampa George, the eldest gent in the village, and he came to the restaurant and talked to me probably for an hour. He was a delight to have met. Lynn refused to let me pay for his tea, insisting "I give Grampa George his tea." And... More

Very very well prepared food, something for everyone and served up by attentive staff. I would think booking would be necessary as it gets busy busy.

We stumbled upon this restaurant whilst strolling through Killin and decided to stop for some lunch and a well deserved drink after hiking! I have to say, these were the best fish and chips I have ever tasted. The staff were very friendly and the service was very quick. If you sit outside you can enjoy your lunch whilst listening...
