“The Hollybank”
Reviewed 8 July 2014 via mobile

Personally, I thought the hollybank was a very nice place. The food was lovely, the service was good especially considering we almost had 11 people dining with us. Overall, it was one of the nicest restraunts I've been to.

“Friendly Lunch”
Reviewed 8 July 2014

Went with friends for lunch and a chat not knowing what to expect as it had been at least twenty years since I'd last eaten at the Hollybank.

The staff were really friendly and the place was busy with people having lunch. There was also a christening party and a wedding party.

The food was good and there was a lot of variety.The staff were excellent and very attentive.

My only complaint is that I thought the place looked a bit tired and in need of some interior and exterior work. This didnt take away from our enjoyment of the meal and I would definately return.

My staff and I appreciate you taking the time to review our restaurant and wish to thank you for your kind comments, we work hard to create a friendly and warm welcome for all our customers. Our restaurant was newly decorated internally only last year, externally is an ongoing project as our building was converted from a family home into a restaurant many years ago and like most old properties requires maintenance. We have extensive gardens and I ensure they are kept neat and tidy at all times. Once again, thank you and we look forward to serving you again soon.

“Really Good”
Reviewed 5 July 2014 via mobile

There was 7 of us,that was here for a meal.

We were seated in a nice quite bit,at a round table .. Which was good,as we all like a catch up ,a good blether .
The place is clean ,everywhere seem to accessible for wheel chairs .

The food is freshly made,hot ,good .i had the chilli,cheese wedges ,the smoked haddock ,and knicker booger glory .. We all had something different ,all the dishes looked good.

There was no rush from the staff to get on with each course,they are polite and friendly..

The view from the car park is amazing .

“Lunch in Stirling”
Reviewed 27 June 2014

We had a wonderful Lunch at The Hollybank this afternoon. Service was excellent even with the restaurant being busy and hosting a funeral tea. The starter of lentil soup was ace, definitely not out of a tin. Main course of roast beef chasseur wasn't the best I have tasted but was still good. Hot chocolate fudge cake with pouring cream was a dream. All in good value for money at a very reasonable price. Recommended by an aunt who stays in Stirling
