Callander Restaurants

I'm always being asked "What are the best Callander restaurants?"

I am not a food guide critic so I shall not be rating the restaurants and place to eat merely giving a listing entry on the site for those who wish to be included.

I shall from time to time add to the list and may even make comments, but that is all. This page on eating out gives an overview of places to eat in the area.

For ease of use I've divided it up into types and I will be adding to the list as I review the various Callander restaurants, cafes and takeaways in and around the town.

    • Comments: Savour informal dining at its very best...complemented – tastefully - by great wines, carefully and expertly chosen to blend with the food. We believe in our classic Scottish culinary product – complex twists and novelties too often distract from the final dish so we tend to avoid them. And our restaurant (or our lovely bar lounge if you prefer) is all about making people welcome, comfortable and feeling at ease.
