"A must place to visit in Stirling"

We were in Stirling shopping recently and went for lunch at Nicky Tams Bar & Bothy a place we had been to before when in Stirling the owners Andrea & Chris we found were back managing the Bar & Bothy on returning they had refurnished the place including the toilets making this the in place to visit.
We were greeted by Andrea at the bar who is delighted to tell you about Nicky Tams.
The service was quick the staff were very helpfull the menu was excellent and very reasonable priced I had the haggis and my partner had the steak pie which were both first class the presentation was excellent.
Well done Andrea and staff this is a must place to visit since you came back again to manage the bothy.
Friendly staff good food what else can you ask for.

Myself and my friend were in Stirling for a visit to the castle and came across this place. We had a great brunch of pancakes with the best scrambled eggs we've had and some fantastic cake. Next time we're in Stirling we will be back. The owner was lovely and smiling which is a pleasure to see.

I've known this ,one of my favourite little bars since I came back from South Africa a few years back and I must commend the new management on the refurbishment ,thoroughly cleaning and upgrading the seating,toilets and bar while retaining it's character .

Well done to Andrea and her pleasant & friendly bar staff ,Coco,Sharon, Gemma & Tanya ... If I missed anyone many apologies .. The Guinness is perfectly poured by Coco and this is the opinion of an Irishman who can be a tad fussy about a 'Point af da Porter' !

Obviously with the new upgrade the menu and kitchen will cater for all your food requirements and I would recommend checking out ' Nicky-Tams Bar & Bothy ' on Facebook for daily updates on Menu specials ,entertainment and promotions! Enjoy :-)

We arrived in Stirling late afternoon and wanted somewhere to eat. Last year it was superb but this year when we arrived I ordered drinks; which took a while and asked for the menu only to be told they only do meals at lunchtime! What a shame. The atmosphere was nothing like it had been before so we downed our drinks and ended up at No 2 Baker Street about 50 yds away where we were welcomed and really looked after with excellent food.

Pull yourself together Nicky Tam - what happened to that super place???

Nicky-Tams will be serving food all day very shortly.

The kitchen has recently undergone a full refurbishment and we have also introduced a new menu.

We now serve freshly prepared food sourced locally or produced locally.

As you will have noticed that we also have improved the decor , washroom facilities as well as renewed furniture.

Nicky-Tams has a warm welcome awaiting with an atmosphere you just can't by at times.

So next time you visit be sure to pop in and sample our food and hospitality.

Thank you for your positive feedback.

We've recently just opened after a refurbishment and are trying various ales every week. Some more popular than others.

Hope to see you back again to sample more of our Ales.
