This was myfirst time at the Village Rest in Luss. The staff were very welcoming and the food was delicious. It was a very relaxing atmosphere and the staff were excellent. I would highly recommend the Village Rest and I shall definitely make a return...visit.More

We stopped here twice - on our way too and from the islands - and both times had a very nice home made lunch with good service and comfortable seating. Lots of afternoon tea options too, including giant homemade fruit scones.

This is a really nice place with genuine friendly staff. We stopped in here for a bite to eat after a nice day out in Luss. This place is very pet friendly and the food is delicious. I would definitely recommend it.

Very nice simple food, great menu with lots of choice. Fast, friendly service. Not a high-end restaurant, just a good homely place to eat.

Brilliant little cafe. We stopped here for lunch. Clean and comfortable outside seating, didn't sit inside but it looked clean and lovely. Dog friendly inside as well as out. Reasonably priced, delicious food. Fast and friendly service. So glad we stopped here.

Superb meal again following our visit last October. Very friendly and welcoming, we were running late so kindly put our booking back half an hour with no bother. They’d sorted a nice quite booth for us so we all could catch up and Harris the...dog stretch out in comfort. Food was first class. Mac cheese, haddock and chips, chicken wrap all highly recommended. Fantastic all round experience - we will be backMore

We were staying locally and stopped at the Village Rest for a quick lunch. The staff were welcoming, the food was lovely and the value was great. If we are ever in the area again we will definitely go there again.

Queued for 15 minutes to get a table, assumed it was good as it was so busy. We finally got a table outside. The table wasn't cleared from previous customers, we had to go and ask someone after about 15 to clear the table, the...girl said it wasn't her job but she would do it.......professional. Ordered our food which you have to pay for upfront (had this not been the case, I wouldn't have paid for what we received), it came quickly....the cutlery was dirty so had another long wait to get someone to replace. The waiting staff were all complaining to a woman who I assume was in charge, about having to work extra hard as it was so busy, so unprofessional. The food was awful.........the chips were raw, the burger and wrap were completely tasteless. Tried to complain but again no staff in sight. £30 down for a horrible experience and inedible food, wont be backMore

I visited the village rest today for lunch with the 2 people I support and another staff member. Food was superb and service very quick. We were made to feel welcome and staff went above and beyond to ensure our visit went smoothly and accommodated...the person I supports needs. Will definitely return.More
