Description: Great food and whisky bar in the heart of the Trossachs. Good places don't need loads of words. You just got to try it! Serving dinner from 17:30 every day, closed on Wednesday. Open for lunch on Sundays. Private lunch bookings are available, functions and small weddings too. Lovey lawn at the front of the building. Great to watch the world go by, with a glass of wine and nice dinner.

OMG we book ourselves in to POPPY SEED RESTAURANT what an amazing meal started with scallops which were Devine then had lamb now that melted in your mouth and because the cheese board sound so good we shared that then followed with melt in the mouth chocolate mouse. This is the best meal we have had whilst travelling around U.K., France and Spain in 5 months. I over heard the people at the next table rebook for Thursday and it's Sunday today plus mention they may also come in between times.
CONGRATULATIONS TO THE CHEF YOU ARE DOING A BLOODY FANTASTIC JOB !!!

As we were a group of 6 decided to book ahead......just as well as Poppy Seed was busy. Has a taste of the variety of special gins on offer in the bar before we had dinner. Some of the special gins were worth trying; some not for the price nothing too good! Dinner not a rushed affair having chosen our dishes while in the bar and we were not rushed to our table. Staff very attentive without being pushy. Dinning room was busy with a good atmosphere. Starters=Soup of the day: good; Aubergine salad: lovely; seared scallops=appeared to be 1 scallop cut in to little bits but very tasty; hot smoked salmon salad=excellent. Main dishes=Chicken supreme: delicious; fillet of salmon: very good; Grilled Halloumi: excellent; Pan Fried Duck: very good; Lamb Rump: really good; Steak; a wee bit veiny. The portions are very generous. Wine a wee bit expensive compared to what the actual wine would cost in a super market! All in all a lovely meal but all drinks a bit on the expensive side. Service was very good, attentive but not too over the top!

Not been here before. Sister restaurant of the tearoom at Bridge O'Turk, a few miles away- also good.

Three of us are here. Service very good. Everything about the venue is very attractive. The food was consistently impressive through all courses. We had duck and also halloumi. Chefy all plates. Highly recommended.
