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.

We decided to go for a walk up in Aberfoyle and went here for some lunch. We were warmly welcomed, and our order was taken promptly. Food was delicious (burger and macaroni) Staff were fantastic. Only 2 working when every table was full. They did...great! They welcomed our wee soggy wet dog in (even though he barked.. sorry about that!) Would definitely recommend and come back. This is a wee homely pubgrub place and it's right up our street.More

Great steak pie was had by us both and a very generous portion of Fab sticky pudding. Everything that we seen been brought out looked lovely.The woman at front of house with her very welcoming smile and friendly personality made us feel very welcome.

First time at The Forth Inn and we were not disappointed. The food was AMAZING. Each plate was brilliantly cooked, tasty, and generous food. All meat and fish was tender and succulent, with veg and sauces to die for. The kids meals were amazing too,...best food they’ve had in a long time, my daughter particularly raving about her pie and the tender steak. Service courteous and helpful, checking details of dishes for us. We’ll definitely be back Hands down the best restaurant in Aberfoyle.More

The food in the forth Inn was excellent, great value for money and the staff are so friendly, i would recommend the steak and ale pie and the chicken stuffed with haggis is the best. I highly recommend this place as a place to grab...a bite to eat.More

The staff was very friendly, the decor cosy but the food and drinks massively overpriced. Unfortunately in regards to the quality and quantity of the food, the price asked isn't justified. On the same day, we are the same food in a similar establishment for...half the price. ☹️More

We stayed at The Forth Inn for one night during a road trip around Loch Lomond. The location is great for visiting the Trossachs National Park and Loch Lomond. Staff were very welcoming and friendly throughout our stay and were very accommodating of our dog....We ate in the restaurant/bar on the evening which has a lovely atmosphere and the food was great, although slightly expensive for pub food we thought. The room we stayed in was quite dated decor-wise but everything was clean and tidy and it had everything we needed. The bedding and towels were of poor quality. Breakfast was great! Overall our stay was decent for what we needed and standard to be expected for a room in a pub. We would definitely return to the pub but not sure if we would stay again without a little updating.More

I’ve been here ever year since 2007. And not once have I had a bad experience. The staff are fantastic and very professional. We travel from Wrexham and some times due to traffic etc we may end up running past our check in times. On...the odd occasion Lee has waited for us to make sure we were fine before he went home! The food is the best around the area! Venison casserole when it’s on, is arguably in the top 5 tastiest meals I’ve had. Me and my family are very appreciative of the staff who haven’t really changed since my first visit! I’ve had some great memories here and wish to have more!More

Dreadful place. The floor in the bedroom and shower room creaked and felt as though it was going to collapse. The decor was all mismatched and had a 70s/80s vibe! Not what we expected for the price. Didn't bother staying for the prepaid breakfast which...wasn't available until 8.40.More

Never seen a hotel so in need of a bulldozer before. Only marginally better than sleeping in the car! Paid for B&B but left before the time we'd been told to eat. Didn't want to risk turning a disaster into a nightmare.

Now I really wish we had taken the name of the young lady that look after us. She provided us with the best service that we experienced anywhere during our Scottish holiday. The place has had a tough time during covid. The mattress might be...a little soft for some people but the room was clean and tidy. The food was great, during dinner and breakfast. Good portions sizes but a little too big for us. Good value for money.More
