Stopped in here a few times for a lunch with my dog. It is not obvious to spot being upstairs but has a cracking balcony on a sunny day. Off course if it is wet you can still take the dog in and eat inside,...More

We visit loch lomond often with our dog who loves swimming. We are always on the look out for good establishments who cater for well behaved dogs. Unfortunately the food provided is of poor quality and poor taste. It's very sad as the time has...More
