Reviewed 14 June 2014

We went for a quiet meal for my husband birthday . Picked Brea in Stirling as we hadn't been before but reviews looked good. Small bistro, quiet but pleasant. Staff friendly, helpful and very polite. Good menu choices including a couple of blackboard specials. Children's menu was similarly well presented. Double cheese soufflé with walnuts to start for me, scallops for him. venison for me and chicken and Stornaway black pudding for him for main course. Chicken goujons on a bed of hand cut skinny chips with salad for our daughter. Tomato sauce delivered in a small silver saucepan, very quaint. All freshly made, flavours were excellent, portion sizes good. Parties of >8 may need to book ahead but would be worth it. Definitely be back, with friends too.

“Good value and even better food.”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

This is a very good restaurant, my wife had Chicken Balmoral which was excellent, I had Haddock and Chips , which was a few levels above pub-food , you could taste this was made by a good cook.

The service was very good , the waitress took het time to explain the different types of Ale.

Next time in Stirling we'll eat there again.

“Birthday dinner ”
Reviewed 20 May 2014 via mobile

Come here if you want a narrow but very good menu with amazing burgers. They have brew dog beers and do a decent coffee. The prices are very reasonable with us stuffed at only just over £20 (excluding drinks). Their brownies were probably the best I've had in a long time, crunchy on the outside and warm and soft in the middle.
We came in and it was pretty much empty, don't let it put you off waiter was up for a laugh and the food came very quickly.
Will definitely go again.
