Plenty on plate, I had the Steak n Ale pie, lots of good meat,pastry crust and chips, son had fish, well served with chips and side salad. Speedy friendly service. Reasonably priced after nine at night!

Liked all the food I ate there. Fish was fresh and the wine was lovely, even the bottom end of the price tag.

After a day in the hills we stopped off, not for the first time, at the Ben Lawers for some food. Our place of choice, as well as the Killin Hotel, when in this area. Friendly staff met us and we were seated and served quickly. As always the food was good and plentiful. Only slight quibble is they have changed the menu and removed the Lawers Mess from the desserts plus no trifle either, so I actually had to look at the menu this time... ;-) . That aside no problems. The hotel is walker and dog friendly so I can recommend it.

Greeted on arrival by two very friendly and well-mannered Australian girls. Asked for a pint of Guinness, was given draught in a can which was put onto some sort of machine for reasons I'm not entirely sure. Charged £3.80 for the privilege. Fish & chips for dinner was reasonable enough, if slightly on the pricey side. Barmaid/waitress couldn't be more helpful enough. Became aware of loud swearing coming from the kitchen where it was obvious the French sounding chef hated his job. I don't mind swearing in a pub, but this was over the score. Kitchen door was eventually closed.

Booked a table for 8 of us at 7.30. When the first of the party arrived they were met with a grumpy bar person who growled that the table was booked for 8pm, not a good start to the night. We ordered drinks which were slow to arrive and ordered our food when drinks arrived. Waiter came back to say they only had one portion of scampi!!! Bit surprising considering this is a frozen packet meal and the hotel only re opened 6 days previously. Starters eventually came followed by cutlery some time later. Main courses arrived which were served on cold plates, we had to wait on all 8 meals before cutlery was brought to the table, I had Salmon which by the time I got cutlery was cold, it was served with 2 small potatoes and very small portion of veg. 2 of the party had Rib Eye steak but the steak knives were blunt so they didn't enjoy sawing their way through. Our Bill was just over £25 per head for 1 round of drinks, 2 bottles of wine, 4 starters and 8 mains, not good value at all. The waiter was at best grumpy, atmosphere non existent, and the room was cold unless you were sitting at the wood burning stove, there was a lovely fire at the other end if the room but unfortunately was not lit, so most of our party were freezing. This hotel has no other nearby competition so obviously don't think they need to make an effort. We won't be back
