Visited on 2/7/15 for a meal. Food was lovely and staff very nice. Especially attentive to two elderly aunts. Bar is small and waitress suggested we might prefer one of the dining rooms, which was great. Even the dog was was made welcome. As we bought a holiday home nearby this will be really handy to dine out and forget...

Stayed in the Blackbull for three nights with my nieces wedding reception being held there on the third night. The whole stay could not have been better. The entire team at the Blackbull were so friendly and helpful, they couldn't do enough for us. Three good night sleep ensued thanks to the extremely comfortable bed. We ate dinner in and...

The Black Bull delivered a super and memorable evening with great food, excellent service and an overall relaxed ambiance. Liz, Andy and their team made sure every detail was taken care of and they went the extra mile to ensure we had a lovely evening. Feedback from our guests confirmed that the party went well and that everyone enjoyed themselves.

Had a family party here over the weekend. Liz and Andrew couldn't have done enough and the work they put in behind the scenes is admirable. The food was delicious, the custom birthday cake faultless and we wouldn't have had such a great night without them! Thank you! Definately recommend!

We stayed at the Black Bull during the Commonwealth Games and it was an ideal base for getting into Glasgow and also exploring the Trossachs and Loch Lomond. The double room was spacious and tidy. The hotel is part of the village pub and it had a friendly feel to it (plus a good range of whiskey). Andrew, Liz and...

Myself and my partner were here on the 12/07/14. It was advertised at the reception at Trossachs Holiday Park where we were staying for the weekend. We both found the food to be of good quality. I had the black pudding fritters followed by the home made burger. My partner had the garlic bread followed by the jerk chicken. We...

Working in the top end of the travel industry, I get to eat a lot of fine food all around the world. The food at the Black Bull is a match for anything I have eaten anywhere. It is always telling how well cooked 'simple' food is. The chips were simply amazing, the burger delicious and the starters a revelation....

Took my Nan and Auntie here last night, despite the main room being used for a function they seated us in the "Red Room" a small dining room which was ideal as we had a lovely table next to the window, able to use the coat stand rather than having them on the back of our chairs. Although there was...
