I had the Ben Arthur burger, my Mrs had the Steak pie. Everything was fresh, home-made. And tasty as anything, really really impressed. Daniel the chef was warm, and convivial. He even managed to find me a bit of haggis to go on my burger....We will definitely be coming here again, thanks guysMore

January so not a lot of options to eat but this was recommended by a local (we’d had a poor meal in our hotel the night before). It’s pub grub but cooked well. Nachos were generous with lots of cheese, peppers & guacamole. Burgers juicy,...well cooked with toasted brioche buns, we had to sit in the sports bar as we had the dog, but natives were friendly and had a wee chat! No signs of unfriendly staff - they couldn’t have been more accommodating. I’m sure in Summer it’d be lovely eating & looking out onto the Loch.More

We came here after our walk to have drink and something to eat. Service and staff were poor not interested and annoyed that we may want to stay and eat. So much so we had one drink and then left. We heard staff member on...the phone whilst we were having drinking. Don’t think she had any help or something. We left and went else whereMore

Good food and location and staff was helpful. Reasonably priced and parking on site was handy, and a great view of the loch. Only reason it’s not a 5* review is serving drinks in a can for me is a no no. Just my opinion...as I wasn’t a fan of cans of irn bru/cokeMore

Tasty food with good portion sizes, what more can you ask for? Great scenery, you’ve got that too. Reasonably priced with a good service. Everything clearly made to order. Highly recommended particularly the salt and chilli chicken.

Visited here for food and drinks after a long walk. Food was amazing and the staff were excellent. A great location with great views. Entertainment at night was also very good, with a karaoke and a great atmosphere. Would absolutely visit here again.

Wow, what a place, I’ve rarely seen this in my 55 years on this planet! American werewolf in London!!! The Slaughtered Lamb, that’s the feeling in this place! Nobody is pleasant in there! We were attracted by the menu, but then!!! Don’t bother with this...place unless you are a fan of this movie! I would advise The Village Inn instead, expensive but coherent. Couldn’t put less stars!!!More
