This is a lovely little pub with decent meals available, a selection of beers, ciders and some real ale, however, on our visit they had just run out of one of the barrels. Enjoyed the ambience of the place and the friendly helpful staff, worth a visit.

Stopped in at the Portcullis on our way to the Christmas Fayre at Stirling Castle and it was well worth the slog up the hill from the town centre.Lovely warm welcome helped along by the roaring fire and very comfortable surroundings. Excellent menu and I had one of the evenings specials and my mouth was watering even as the dish... More

What a lovely way to spend a lazy late lunch. Wonderful surroundings with a roaring open fire and the very best of service. The food was full of all your favourites, but I highly recommend the steak pie! And such good value. Remember to book, it is very popular.

Good food, though poor selection if you are vegetarian. I had a lovely pasta dish but it came with a huge salad, which I was unable to eat, there must be a great deal of food waste. None the less we would certainly return.

I hesitated going to look in here as it is next to the castle and I expected it to be pricey. I was wrong. Gorgeous traditional pub in a beautiful old building. Pub style food - sandwiches, jacket potatoes and main meals. Fabulous service - nothing too much trouble. £15 for two drinks, jacket with chili cheese &a sour cream... More

First time I have ever been, and it was amazing! The food was so good! I've never been before, and would recommend to book as not a lot of seats inside. Menu selection good, and a special board. Portions are massive, so I only managed a main. But some of the others had starters and sweets and the looked good!... More

Fantastic meal had here. Portions are a good size so we shared 2 starters for 4 people before ordering steaks and burgers, then puddings and boozy coffees. All good was great. The restaurant is lovely; natural stone walls, a roaring real fire and a fine selection of malt whiskeys behind the bar. Service was friendly and attentive but relaxed...just right.... More
