We were looking for somewhere to eat and we stumbled on to the Cairndow. We were delighted with every aspect of our visit - the service was great and the food excellent. Would highly recommend.

“Very friendly & great food, ate inside the "Stagecoach"”
Reviewed 11 July 2014 via mobile

Stopped in here for lunch on a whim, we were the only customers so were a bit nervous of what we were going to get.

Shouldn't have worried! Barman was very welcoming and friendly especially to my (exuberant) 5 year old son :-)
Sat inside the "stagecoach" to eat, played riding on the front, wore a sombrero!

Food was very nice, especially the puddings - traditional Scottish Cranachan made with a decent single malt (Jura) much to hubbys delight. And the lemon shortbread on the side was melt in the mouth, best we've ever had (& we're Scottish!)

After lunch, found the beer garden on the Loch side - stunning! And walked to Britains tallest tree in a beautiful forest. Happy happy :-)

“Great views, food and very friendly.”
Reviewed 19 May 2014

We have visited the bar numerous times whilst on holiday here. What a friendly pub this is.The staff are really welcoming and friendly. We decided to try the food and were not disappointed. We ate from the a la carte menu. The food was excellent, the scallop starter is really good, my husband had the mussels, also great, the 3 fish main dish was excellent as was the lamb rump. The veg and accompaniment s were also good. Will be visiting again very soon.

“FANTASTIC FOOD AND BRILLIANT SERVICE”
Reviewed 19 May 2014

We booked a table to eat here as the bar area allows us to bring the dog with us and the lady taking the booking reserved us "the stagecoach table" which is situated just off the bar area. We own a property in the area and just fancied a change of scenery from our more local haunts. We were greeted by a very friendly young man who having shown us to our table very quickly returned to explain the daily specials and take a drinks order. As the business is in a remote location we were expecting nothing more than basic pub food so were very surprised to see a menu which would have stood proudly in any city centre restaurant we have eaten in. The food and the service here are both fantastic. The standard of the food is an absolute credit to the chef and the owners deserve so much praise for choosing to invest in quality ingredients and have the confidence in their kitchen employees to produce such good food. They also have a more basic menu for bar food which we did not see but were so pleased with the food and service that we will return and certainly advise everyone to try.

Hello,

Thank you for taking the time to leave us feedback. I am glad to read that you enjoyed your meal and that you were looked after so well by our team. I do have to point out that when the Stables Restaurant is open and serving dinners it is only the Bar Menu available in the Bar... Just in case you come back with your dog.

Thanks again,

Jamie

“What a night! We'll be back.”
Reviewed 17 May 2014 via mobile

Damp, dreary Saturday night after a long drive from Southern England. Tired and hungry, called in at the Stagecoach on off chance of getting a table. Inside couldn't be more opposite the weather. Extremely courteous and warm welcome. Sorted us out a table even though we hadn't booked. Food was absolutely great, really tasty and wholesome and the service couldn't be faulted. Even when we had slight hiccough with one of the main meals it was exchanged immediately without question or fuss. To cap it all a nightcap in the bar accompanied by live music and great lively atmosphere. Couldn't fault the place and will definitely be back later in the week.
