Absolutely lovely afternoon in the Castle dining room. Food was fresh and cooked beautifully, service was outstanding. Sadly there were not many people dining, which led to a very hushed atmosphere. That said it was very warm outside so perhaps this is the reason. It really didn't bother us though as we received dedicated attention! Recommend this place to everyone - superb!

There is no atmosphere in the restaurant in the castle. The old restaurant across the other side was such a joy to go to and the ambiance was special which the castle is not I am sorry to say.

We always have a great experience dining at Glenskirlie. Great food and service every time. Been coming since our daughters christening almost 16 years ago. Have enjoyed many family celebrations from Comunions to Birthdays. Always enjoy our visits.

Room: Amazing room and something that we will be doing again. Drinks: these were priced very reasonable. Food: I was really disappointed when I found out that the food was not in the main house, and only in the grill area, The food was ok, it did not wow me at all and this was a disappointment, as glenskirlie can do so much more, I know I got married here. Got to remember that there is nothing in banknok rather than glenskirlie, so when you are there you are expecting to be catered for. So let’s finish on recommendations: Reception area to have drinks in, just does not work, it’s unprofessional to have people sitting around having drinks when you are arriving to the hotel, this should be done separately Outside area, back of resteraunt, was beautiful area, but yet again missing atmosphere, this should have been lit up, outdoor heaters and more welcoming place, when dinner is finished, outside for a few before bed. So overall, I would give 3out of 5, but they need to involve you more in the experience that they advise has been there for 30 years

Having dined here regularly over the years for special occasions in the House restaurant (& got married in the House), we anticipated our usual fine dining experience in the ambiance of the House, but it's moved to the Castle, and to a small bar area with around 8 tables, as their was a wedding on. Whilst service and food was good, the overall experience wasn't what it used be.

excellent afternoon enjoyed by all for our Golden Wedding Celebration. Food drink and service excellent. Even Better since our coffee etc was served outside in the garden. Friends commented on lovely surroundings and beautiful venue. Thank you.

I wasn’t happy with the service. And I ordered a glass of wine with my lunch and I’m still waiting on it the restaurant wasn’t overly busy. It wasn’t really the service I’ve had before from the glenskirlie.

Food was nice and as it was an itison deal we didn’t expect more, however, having eaten ala-carte in Glenskirlie we were disappointed to see the normal menu which isn’t particularly special now so wouldn’t return for this The restaurant is very void of any atmosphere sadly it felt very cafe like and needs improved Decor and softened. We went into the bar after dinner ... same issue ... no music or atmosphere....sadly disappointing

Service was quite good considering the restaurant was nearly full. The food was good and well presented. My wife said the scallops were definitely a 'ten' but her tomato gnocchi was badly overdone on the base and inedible. The wild mushroom soup was full of flavour and the portions were more than adequate - so much so that we skipped dessert and just went for green teas.

The food we had was excellent with the exception of the chips I was served. However, it was brought to the attention of the chef and I was thanked for the input and let them know. I was given a latte in exchange for the chips. I was thrilled with that.

We had dinner in the restaurant and it was so good. From the service to food couldnt fault it. Breakfast however i was a little disappointed. The black pudding was very hard and dry and the potato scone seemed over cooked. The service and staff were great tjo.

The grill in the castle building gives more room between tables. I found the lamb dish rich with the goats cheese jus and gnocchi quite strong tastes. Lamb itself was great. Fish and chips were good.

Unfortunately your award winning restaurant has now gone. The dining room in the castle cannot be compared to the old dining room in any way, it used to be the most elegant dining experience in the area. Now on offer is a cafe bistro feel which does not feel special in any way. The atmosphere and menu choice cannot even be compared to the old fine dining experience. Having stayed at the Castle before your bedrooms are amazing and your reception area is lovely. Having arranged a baby sitter we were very excited about returning for a romantic evening, we opted to come to Glenskirlie over Pow Foulous and The Roman Camp in Callander. We did not complain as the service and food were very good. Reading the website without prior knowledge, it is a little misleading that your award winning restaurant has now gone and been replaced by the castle breakfast room. Sadly you are now off our short list for a fine dining meal. This review is not a complaint, its honest genuine feedback from a gutted customer.
