“Excellent food, but not for children”

Reviewed 6 April 2018

Had booked for a family lunch on busy Bank Holiday. Attentive staff and well looked after. Food was enjoyed by all the adults - inevitable delay in receiving food on a busy day. Just a shame no children's menu so we were unclear how much we would pay for them or what they would receive on their plates. The menu was not to their liking. The other shame is the wooden floor and heavy chairs make the place extremely noisy. Very hard to hear each other, not helped by a large table of adults and young children that were naturally noisy and that echoed around the room taking away some "atmosphere"!

My son and daughter in law were married at Loch Venachar and the catering at the café was first class, so I always try to call in even during a quick visit to Scotland. The lunch menu is, as always, imaginative and full of locally produced ingredients.
I have always recommended this place to visitors and am never disappointed with what I get there.

Stunning position, food brilliant, service and friendliness perfect. My last visit (March 2018) had the sort I meal I never wanted to finish it was so good. I bring all my visitors here - the best place to eat in the whole area.

Quality food, fantastic setting with no close competition, but a little pricey for what is offered. Nice touches of fresh water on table in gin bottles, £5 for a mug of soup and £10 for a bowl of soup, it is tasty but not really worth that although main course was large and filling and much better value. Harvieston ale on tap and chilled white wine available.

We booked a table for four for lunch last week, and had a great meal! Excellent service, quality food and washed down with a nice Sauvignon blanc! Recommend highly.
