We eat here when we stayed in the Loch Lomand area recently. The food is excellent and would highly recommend a visit. It is also great value for money and friendly and attentive service. Well worth a visit.

Really nice home made tasting food, with excellent service. All our dishes were super tasty and excellent value. Recommend it to have a different cuisine when you're in the area.
