Old fashioned but fairly priced and friendly staff. We had the baked potatoes with Coronation chicken and Tuna (if memory serves) would return. Sorry for taking so long to write this review.

Visited recently for our Bridge Club Christmas lunch. The meal was excellent, nicely presented and the staff very attentive and helpful. This was my fourth Christmas meal this year and the best in my opinion.

light lunch. Was not busy , didn't have to wait long for our meal. Was basic but very enjoyable. The pannie was thankfully not overcooked, like it can be . Nice to see real bacon rashers too.

This is by far one of the best Restaurants in Scotland, The service is impeccable and the food is beyond belief. All the food is cooked to order although you may have to wait a while it is worth the wait.

Have never had a bad meal here. I have mostly been there for lunch, and they have a good variety of offerings. Staff are helpful and there have been no extended waits for service, even when they are very busy.

We had lunch twice while we visited this area and were very happy with our meals. The food is homely and the venue very warm and welcoming. We would always go there when in Callander.

As a frequent visiter here over many years I have enjoyed the food and friendly atmosphere however the menu hasn't changed since my first visit, maybe 15 years ago. I prefer competitors now but if the menu was spruced up a bit I would return.

I agree with the others. I think it may be too small. It might be worth contacting the owners just in case we are wrong
