I had dinner here as my hotel doesn’t do food in the evenings. What a find. Staff were exceptionally friendly, knowledgeable and helpful advising on different dishes. Food is cooked fresh and it shows, dishes are very professionally presented and of high quality. The scallops starter was sublime.
Brea doesn’t look that inviting from the outside which is a shame, but don’t let that put you off, venture inside and I doubt you will be disappointed. Definitely one to visit again. Top notch.

There were some decent moments, but top to bottom the experience was disappointing. Service was polite and inoffensive but also inattentive. Soups were very nice, but the entrees on our table fell flat. The burger was overpriced for an average offering. Salmon & prawn salad was bland and felt like something I'd whip up for a quick dinner at home.

It's not a terribly expensive restaurant, but you're paying a decent premium that was not reflected - across the board, at least - in the service and food.

Sorry to hear your disappointment. I guess we’ll just have to put you down as the one we couldn’t please. As 87% of our reviews are four or five star, I suppose that the vast majority of our customers love what we do.

All the best,

Rob

Had a meal here with a few friends and the food was brilliant. I’d recommend the haggis... it’s perfect! The service was also very good and attentive, exactly what you want for a little place.

I also think it’s well priced, we all ate for just over £20 per head for a main and a couple drinks.

Well worth the visit whilst in Stirling
