Came into town a little late and made our way to the Village Rest. It is easy to order from the table. Food was good, friendly atmosphere. Perfect for the end to a long day of driving.

We had a lovely evening meal here. Generous portions from a wide ranging menu with daily specials. Remarkably friendly service and our dog was welcomed with a biscuit.

Ideal place for 3 generations to eat together - something for the younger ones to keep them occupied and a suitable menu for all.

We found a table outside and waited for somebody to clean it after last customers. Several of them passed us and did nothing and finally cleaned it after some minutes. Then we had to ask two or three other waiters to dry the benches as...More

Great food in a great location - that is what The Village Rest is all about. Always comfortable and friendly, you can be assured of a great time whether you're just in for a cup of coffee and a cake, or a large meal.Our varied and well balanced menu changes regularly and is in season and the food always fresh. We aspire to serve delicious homemade dishes with locally sourced produce. Our atmosphere is relaxed with an eclectic interior. The Village Rest is casual enough for lunch or tea, and yet formal enough for special occasions.In the perfect village of Luss, The Village Rest is ideally placed for enjoying Loch Lomond and the scenery of the national park. Arguably Scotland's most beautiful loch, Loch Lomond is also one of the largest. There is huge variety too, between the gentle sweeping farmland of the southern edge to the rugged highland shores of the north. Luss is positioned on the edge of the Highlands and has great views across to the islands and mountains of Loch Lomond.Luss is connected to central Scotland by the A82, a good quality fast road, with driving times of less than an hour from central Glasgow.
