Went with friends who stay within walking distance, arrived at 7.30 ordered drinks and asked for a menu, told they stopped serving at 8. And kitchen closed. Wright enough nobody in place eating. Yet it says on billboard food served till 8pm !! An older couple came at our back and he had walking difficulties, just walked from sauchie (next village) took him half an hour but he knew he would make it there before 8 o'clock ! The tables were still layed out with cutlery ! Both the tiered old couple and my company of five had a quick chat about service and left after our drink. The staff asked on our way out if we not staying for the quiz ? I replied we were here for food and if they had made us a meal we would have stayed for more drinks and there quiz. The gentleman just shrugged his shoulders !!! Sorry I have no comment on food !! Ps lovely cold pint of magners if that helps !!!!!

We are sorry you had a bad experience, our last order for food is 7.30pm kitchen closes at 8pm. The 'older couple' are regular's in our restaurant and I can assure you they do not walk, they drive. We have gained a very nice relationship with the couple.

Worst place I've ever eaten really should have just walked out but manners stopped me from doing that, place and staff in need of a good clean dread to think what the kitchens are like

13.00 on a Sunday and no diners was a surprise. The restaurant within the pub lounge was set-out and waiting but only a few came over the next hour or so. Service was handled by the barman who was pleasant and efficient. Two roasts were available, lamb and chicken. We started with soup which was excellent and set us up in anticipation for the main course which although adequate was not exceptional or exciting. Pudding like the soup was very good. Had there been roast potatoes and had the yorkshire puddings been less crisp the main course would have have scored higher. That said, overall it was good, reasonably priced food. The pub is easily accessible with its own car park and well positioned if you are visiting the area or touring through the little towns by the Ochils or simply visiting the furniture retailer in nearby Tillicoultry. I would go back but I wouldn't rush back. Another plus was the good access and space for disabled wheel chair customers.
