We came here once spontaneously and were lucky to get a table. The second time we booked. Both times, the service was friendly and fast and the food was excellent. My husband particularly loved the surf and turf. The views of the firth are also fantastic.

My folks stayed in one of the rooms on a recent visit and were very impressed. Fabulous setting right on the shore of the Forth of Clyde. Highly recommended but book in advance as its always...

This is a very welcoming pub that sits on the shore looking out over the Firth of Clyde. The Waverley passed while we were eating which is always a great sight. The staff here are really friendly and even though the food is made to order, we were served quite quickly. We had fish and chips and scampi and chips... More

My girlfriend and I visited this restaurant recently. We picked it based on the fact we could walk there from the holiday cottage we were staying at! It was a great choice. The food was very good, and all seemed really fresh and home made. The views were what really 'made it'. Looking out across the water with the sun... More

Excellent location. The food is good with a good choice. There are also real ales available. The menu is varied with excellent steaks available. Kids half portions are also available. You can sit outside on a sunny day or the conservatory overlooking the firth of Clyde gives an excellent Outlook.

Warm and welcoming with wonderful views over the Clyde. Food was excellent and so was the Guinness! Sadly no dogs are allowed even in the bar area which is a real shame.

The Osborne is a beautiful old building which we have upgraded to a fantastic Bar/Restaurant and eventually B&B. A great view of the Clyde and its traffic can be seen from our conservatory dining room and we have a fully stocked bar with great Ales, Lagers, Ciders etc. A wide selection of Malts, Gins & other spirits can also be enjoyed. Reservations for dining is advised as this guarantees your table. We hope to see you soon. Pete.
