The Village Rest

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.

Tarbet Tea Room

Reviewed By stevetheskier - Lochwinnoch, United Kingdom

We have stopped at the Tarbet Tea Room on several occasions when returning from trips to Argyll. It is right on the A83 just by the hotel. There is not much room for parking but if you cannot get on the forecourt there is a small area suitable for parking right opposite the hotel. The tea room is small and basic but has a really nice atmosphere and the staff are very friendly. Having tea out of China cups is quite a rarity these days and not only do you get a good size pot of tea but you also get an additional pot of hot water. The food is typical of a small café and there are always plenty of delicious cake options.

The Village Inn

Reviewed By DougieB49 - Paisley, United Kingdom

While spending a few days in Arrochar popped in here for a drink at lunchtime. It doesn't get much better, when on a cold winter's day you enter a real, cosy bar, with a roaring log fire, and a great selection of wines, spirits, and real ales. The staff were friendly and welcoming. It is an old world type of bar with real character. We only had a few drinks the first visit. We liked it so much we went back the next day. The menu looked very appetising, if a little expensive, and we really only wanted a lunchtime snack. The pleasant young lady serving us said there were problems with the kitchen that day but they could make up something simple for us, so she served up two plates of delicious sandwiches. Although we did not stay overnight in this place , it seemed extremely organised and well run by friendly and pleasant staff. We would certainly recommend this place, and if you are in Arrochar give it a try, even if it's only for a quick drink.

The Rowardennan Hotel Restaurant

Reviewed By ianx17489 - Deal, United Kingdom

Went here for lunch yesterday and was slightly disappointed.
There is not much atmosphere apart from the welcoming roaring log burner. The soup was a small bowl with an equally small bread roll with it. My wife who is an ardent soup fan, felt it was not as wholesome as she would have expected from a place frequented by hungry walkers. At £4:50 a bowl it's over priced for what they serve. (To be fair if you have it with a panini etc it's only £2:50).
I had the steak pie, which had a healthy portion of steak, very good chips and veg. The sauce with the steak was rather strange, not unpleasant but one I had not encountered before.... Tasted as though it was full of powdered gravy...
The staff did not seem to enjoy working, no smiles or pleasant comments, all very functional.
This place has such potential but we're unlikely to return.

Mr. C's Fish and Whiskey Restaurant and Bar

Reviewed By Purplesecret

We stopped off for lunch on our way to Oban, wish we hadn't bothered. The young lady who greeted us was lovely, very friendly. We were given menus and she took our drinks order. The food was expensive but everything sounded nice. We both decided on the Venison burger which came with chips. The burgers were delicious but unfortunately the chips were awful, very dry and tasted like they had been cooked earlier and just dipped in the fryer to refresh them. Certainly not worth £13.95 each. When we went to pay we were asked if everything was ok, we said we didn't enjoy the chips they were very dry and they just said, oh I'll mention it to the Chef. Obviously not interested and I very much doubt that they mentioned it to the Chef. Wouldn't recommend.

This is a pub, not a restaurant. What put me off when I walked in was the three different types of tartan wall-to-wall carpeting. A real sight for sore eyes! The food, however, is delicious, down-to-earth pub grub. My home-made Scotch Pie was really tasty. Service is friendly and efficient.

Wee Blether Tea Room

Reviewed By icelolly08 - Edinburgh, United Kingdom

We stayed at Forrest Hills hotel and shocked at the breakfast prices.
Found the Wee Blether tea room a short walk from the hotel.
We had coffee & cake which was lovely.
Next 2 mornings we had bacon rolls and pot of tea which was a great start to the day. Friendly staff in quirky surroundings love the wallpaper in the toilet !
Nice wee find.

The Pier Tea Room

Reviewed By LynneC73 - Stirling, United Kingdom

We have visited the tea room on a number of occasions however this was the first time since the change of ownership in March. Whilst the menu hadn't changed too much the overall quality and presentation of the food was simply nowhere near as good as on previous occasions.
Sadly we're unlikely to return in the future.

Reviewed By Octorissa - United States

This was a perfect stop within walking distance of where we were staying. Hot vegetable soup was a welcome comfort from the cold, and the lady working here was super sweet. Clean and friendly with great homemade rolls! Got those a few times for breakfast. Also, they sold Tunnock's there and I couldn't enough. Good place to stop in and grab a bite before an excursion. There is a single picnic table for Seating, but I came by here before heading out to wherever I was going that day. Prices were very reasonable too!
