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.

Going for dinner is not only about food but also about atmosphere and good feeling. At the Meadows it is all being taken care of in an onforgettable way. Food and tastes to remember and an friendly experience that will last for life. Michelin would...rate this restaurant as worth for a detour. I would ssy it is worth the goal of your travel. Within miles of Callander this is the only place where they don't fill you with nssty hamburgers an pizzas but with real tasty homemade quality food. Thanks!More

I had an amazing stay. Nick and Susannah are super nice, the room spacious and comfortable, the food amazing. They recommended great hikes and even let me borrow their well-behaved, friendly dog for one of the walks. I will definitely come back if I'm in...the area again.More

Sat outside and had sandwiches and coffee. Good service and pleasant setting in the garden after an otherwise depressing trek up and down the main drag. Good experience and I’d recommend.

We had dinner here last night and it was simply fabulous and very reasonably priced. It was a 5/6 course set menu for £50, and we both found things we liked. It was all freshly prepared and pickles, sauces etc all homemade. The dining room...is a cosy intimate room. We thoroughly enjoyed our night. So good to have a restaurant like this in Callander!! It was all so lovely I forgot to take pictures until the desert!!More

Arrived in Callander for a bank holiday a wee day with my mum, searching the food options nothing really stood out (not a dig at anywhere I was just being fussy). Walked by an archway, looked beyond and saw it leading in to a hidden...garden off the thoroughfare. Had to give a shot & thankfully I did because the menu although concise offered quality in spades: kicked off with a French onion soup (rarely seen in the wild these days) , I’m not too ashamed to admit but I could’ve drunk a pint of the stuff! Here’s where my only criticism lies, could’ve done with a wee bit more cheese on the crouton but that really is nit picking since the homemade bread it was served on practically melted in the mouth. I was recommended the new lamb kofta burger & and not being one to go pass up a good recommendation went all in & thankfully I did: fresh fresh lamb & mint flavours with perfectly cooked skin on fries - I’ll be thinking of this for some to come. To wrap things up was the staff, attentive & truly pleasant bunch, they just made the whole thing an absolute pleasure. Look forward to seeing you guys soon!More

Ended a weeks stay in the Trossachs by booking a special evening out. Did my research and found Callendar meadows had lots of amazing reviews so went with that. We chose from a set menu - good choices which also catered well for vegetarians. So...glad we went. Every course was (home) cooked, using fresh seasonal ingredients and each meal was faultless. We started with homemade bread, olives and hummus - have to mention these were unusually good olives. We chose asparagus panna cotta and chicken live parfait as starters, which tasted as good as they looked - both presented beautifully. Soup was carrot and orange , brought in a pretty teacup, with garlic croutons, a swirl of creme fraiche and chopped chives - the best carrot soup we’ve ever had. For our main courses, we chose baked cod with cheese topping and bean-stuffed red pepper. Again, both cooked to perfection, hugely tasty and delicious accompaniments. Puddings again were such well thought out dishes - we had a mango mousse and bread&butter pudding - thought to just name them is to understate their quality in terms of flavour, freshness and presentation. As well as the food, the dining room needs a mention. Beautiful front room in a beautiful house (also a B&B though we weren’t staying). The atmosphere was relaxed even though we felt we were dining so well. Some diners were dressed up, some dressed more relaxed - all felt right and comfortable. Around 7 or 8 tables in all ensured a personal, friendly service . I can’t end this review without mentioning Theo. He was working alongside the owner, and seemingly being trained along the way. He was absolutely lovely and has the makings of a very good waiter/server/host - friendly, attentive, just nicely confident, able to provide detail as of food when asked etc. Many thanks to the whole team, we had a truly wonderful evening with you. If we return to the area, we will absolutely be returning to Callander Meadows.More

Its B and B centrally located near the national park. It’s on the Main Street in Callander and run by a friendly couple. The breakfast was good and they serve dinner some nights. However the mattress and bed linen were old, uncomfortable and downright pitifully...dated. I did not feel clean or comfortable in their bed. If you can deal with this it’s a place for you. Outside of the bed the place was ok. The room and baths and dining room were clean.More

Stayed here overnight with a friend as we were attending a wedding nearby and can’t rate it enough. Everyone was so friendly & helpful and went out their way with accommodating us. We had asked to check in early so we could get changed for...the wedding and it was no problem. Room was spotlessly clean and a good size for a b&b. Parking round the back in Callander Meadows Car Park was only a few quid for a full 24 hours & the breakfast was to die for!! If we had been staying for two night we would have definitely been staying there for dinner! …And little Fergus was a real highlight 🐶 Thanks for having us xMore

We were quite impressed by Callander Meadows- it appears to be just another restaurant in downtown Callander, but it offered us our best dining experience in our 1-week Scotland vacation. Their £45 prefix menu was a great value, and my wife said the lamb was...the best she’s ever had. Service was very friendly as well.More

Lovely independent restaurant with locally sourced produce prepared by the husband and wife team. We had a pleasant evening to celebrate our anniversary whilst in Callander. We chose the smoked chicken noodles, salmon and sea bass mains with the strudel & rhubarb and raspberry dessert...all of which were delicious. It was a nice touch for the chef (previously of Gleneagles) to come out and speak to us after the meal. We’d recommend a visit, definitely the best place in Callander.More

We had an outstanding meal here. The menu was very thoughtfully put together. The standard of cooking was superb. Quite possibly the best steak I’ve had! The scallops were fantastic too! Very generous portions. We couldn’t fit in dessert at the time, however we were...kindly offered to take it away. 3 hours later we managed it, and it was so so good! I’d highly recommend a visit here if you can get booked in! We were looked after superbly, not intrusive and there when you needed something. Overall a fantastic experience.More
