“Absolutely brilliant”
Reviewed 18 June 2014 via mobile

Food setting and establishment. Nothing was too much trouble. The speciality is the lake caught trout and it was by far the best I have ever tasted. Will be coming back Friday we liked it so much

“A great family celebration”
Reviewed 2 June 2014 via mobile

We were a party of seven, 3 generations, including several vegetarians and celebrating a birthday at lunchtime. We began with drinks in the bar and were impressed to be offered 3 different gins for our pre-prandials.

We enjoyed the special soup - roast onion, potato and thyme - as well as the veggie salads and fish cakes. For mains the Menteith trout was wonderful and the veggie burger was also well received.

Although it was a drizzly day, the views of the lake, fishing boats and the Inchmahome Priory ferry were great.

A great lunch!

“Wonderful restaurant with a view to die for”
Reviewed 2 June 2014

You eat in the conservatory of a waterfront hotel built in classic New England style, and the amazing view over the loch, with the sun setting, could not be bettered anywhere in the UK. Add to that impeccable, yet relaxed service, wonderful food and wine, there is nothing more to add than to say that if you are in the area, treat yourself - you will not regret it.

“Couldnt fault”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

This hotel is set on the banks of lake of menteith and we ended up here after a run in car.
We were given a choice of where to sit and we chose the restaurant which is situated at back of hotel overlooking the lake.
First impressions of hotel were very good,however the menu didnt have much choice on it which was off putting,however as there was nowhere else nearby we decided to give it a go.
We both had soup to start and opted for a starter as a main(asparagus,cheese and fig).
All I can say is the food was excellent,very simple but tasty and fresh.The grilled asparagus was delicious and the caramelised fig that came with it was a great compliment to the dish.
We both found the service to be excellent and very friendly and will definitely be back.
The hotel is set right at the lakeside and is a great place to have a lunch or meal and we are both delighted we gave it a try as so many times we have a lunch in other places it is too heavy going...this was spot on.
