Small bar and restaurant just off the Callander - Brig o Turk road. Signs at the entrance gate say no cars, private grounds etc but this refers to the estate which shares the entrance. This can be confusing. Good car park with only a few yards walk to the pub built in an old stone cottage. Furnished in a variety... More

Just off the main road through Brig O Turk this small pub / restaurant does all the standard fayre within a quaint setting. You won't find better in the area and all at a reasonable price.

The pub/Inn is a popular eating place, though you need to go early as last orders for food are 8pm. Best dish is the charcuterie board called a Crofters Dish to share cold, simply as everything else is pretty awful. Dishes are voluminous and stodgy. Mashed potato with black pudding is served in volume and has clearly been mashed without... More

The food was different, tasty and reasonable. We were able to eat with our dog in the bar area. Interesting range of books and games were scattered around - this would be an ideal place to spend a cosy, entertaining afternoon out of the relentless wind and rain that Scotland sometimes experiences. Equally the well thought-out beer garden is a... More

This is a charming food with pub'. Make sure you have a table in the characterful bar area, not the new extension. The service is friendly and professional, without being subservient. The food however can be patchy. The Crofters Platter needed a microscope,.No matter how expensive the ingredients, perhaps cheaper treats could add volume to an otherwise starvation ration. Main...

Great friendly pub. Pleasant service, children enjoyed the games available at each table. Relaxed dinning didn't need to book.

After a lovely day out walking in the local hills with the dogs, we opted for The Byre Inn rather than head into Callander to jostle with everyone else clambering to get a parking spot. What a great decision - The Byre Inn is a hidden gem which serves fantastic food!! The gastro pub has an excellent menu with 'specials'... More

We had heard good things about the Byre Inn and we were not left disappointed. The food was fantastic - generous portions (the pork belly and haggis were particularly delicious) and the staff were really friendly. Value for money and great atmosphere and perfect end to a long day's walk in the Trossachs. It is family friendly with games on... More
