Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Had a lovely evening and meal here. Service and food was great. Was a lovely atmosphere with the fire pit burning away in the middle of the room.

Had a coffee. Not bad tasted like coffee. Had Victoria sandwich cake….dry tasteless no cream and a sliver of jelly suggesting an attempt at jam. Walnut and coffee cake, tasted a little of coffee, not sure where the walnuts were, dry and quite revolting. All...in all a complete waste of money.More

This was just an impromptu spur-of-the-moment visit, as we were hungry after exploring. Cosy atmosphere inside, plus nice comfy sofa- seats , and great service from a very pleasant , smiley young lady. We didn’t want a meal per-se , so opted for the chicken...mayo sandwiches 🥪 that came with chips - but tbh they were really meals in themselves, as the sarnies were generously packed with filling, and the chips were perfectly done. Will definitely return when next in this lovely area.More

We visited a couple of times when staying in The Kenmore Club. Staff were lovely, the steak pie is so tasty! A bit of a captive audience in such a small place but great place to have.

We were welcomed by a friendly young man who appeared to be employed as doorman and sole waiter. Service was very slow. Quality of food very mixed: fish and chips and Thai curry were good, venison casserole a bit tough but tasty, steak-frites inedible and...was sent back. The replacement, which was brought to the table when the rest of our party had long finished their meal, wasn't much better. An apology from management would have been appreciated. We decided to have dessert at home.More

I can’t rate this wee jewel of a restaurant highly enough! During our Kenmore holiday, we had 2 evening meals in the Courtyard, and each one was just lovely. Friendly, welcoming staff, delicious food, and 5 star service. We ate in the restaurant the first...time. As a party of 7, with kids, young adults, parents and grandparents, they couldn’t do enough for us. 2 of the grandpas had mobility issues; they gave us an accessible table, room to park the wheelie zimmer and assorted walking sticks! Menus were produced, and the family photos were taken by the attentive staff. We had fish and chips which would have fed a family of four, delicious tender steaks, fragrant curries and haggis in a variety of ways, smoked salmon, all scrumptious . A decent quality of wine, soft drinks, and the bill did not at all break the bank. Our second visit was impromptu. After a very disappointing and abortive visit to the Waterfront across the road, with dreadful service, we asked if the Courtyard could accommodate us for dinner. Despite being fully booked, and at no notice whatsoever, they rejigged tables in the bar, again found space for the mobility aids and served all 7 of us a lovely meal. They really saved the last night of our holiday, and helped us celebrate a very special family occasion, all with warmth, professionalism and great service. Our young waiter Aonghas was a joy. Helpful, cheerful and very organised. We will definitely be back to this lovely establishment which treats its customers so well and has a happy, dedicated staff team! Thank you!More

I was on the lookout for ice cream and popped in while passing to ask if they done ice cream to go, I was told yes I just had to order at the bar. I was greeting by a helpful girl who informed me of...the flavours and told me that it would be in a takeaway coffee cup which was fine. Whist she was away making the ice cream I was met by another member of staff (not as chirpy as the first person) who held out the card machine and said “you’re £8 all together”. I’ve now got to where I’m going, opened the 2 cups of ice cream to find out I’d just paid £8 for 4 scoops. £2 a scoop! Absolute madness, yous should be embarrassed, definitely seen me coming!More

Stopped of here on our way back to our holiday apartment at loch tay marina as we fancied a spot of lunch. This is a large complex with accommodation, shop , bar restaurant etc. The weather was glorious and sunny so pretty busy but we...fancied sitting inside in the shade so it was not a problem getting a table. Food is of the pub grub/ bistro style and seemed to be popular with customers! I had a veg burger and it was presented nicely , good portions and tasted very nice ! Staff were pleasant and helpful too. Had a wee wander round the shop also which had plenty supplies as well as touristy stuff. Would go back again, looks a nice spot for a evening meal also !More

Stopped for lunch today and found the waitress very abrupt and non welcoming, Having visited the Courtyard, several times a year for the last 8/9 years, the staff were always welcoming and friendly. Unfortunately this was not the case today! We had the dogs with...us and sat outside, when we went to the bar to order, we said we were sitting outside, Lee were abruptly asked if were we were sitting within their allocated area. In visiting previously we knew which is the allocated area was but for anyone new to the courtyard or indeed Kenmore they may not have known this. We were then handed our condiment’s, cutlery and coffees without a tray! From visiting before the service was always friendly and welcoming, this unfortunately was not the case today! Customer service would be beneficial.More
