Lovely place with great and filling food, not nearest the log fire but the place was buzzing so we got a different table but just as good. I expected a bigger bill at the end, so like the surprisingly good food this was also welcome, service also tip top.

we eventually managed to visit the Lion & Unicorn and it was AWESOME. It was a chilly winters night and we had a beautiful 3 course meal next to a log fire. Food and service top class and surprisingly good prices considering the quality of the dishes. A must visit.

A friend and I stayed here overnight for a short break away. We received a warm welcome on arrival and were shown to a nice room which was clean, with nice bed linen and spotless bathroom facilities. Having booked a table for dinner we were surprised how busy the place was in the evening, being situated in a small, remote...

If you are traveling through Scotland make sure to visit Fiona at the lion and Unicorn country house hotel, as we entered we were welcomed by Fiona, the Land lady, perfect. We asked if we could have a table and were told to pick which ever one we wanted, we sat next to the window. A few minutes later Fiona...

We visited for dinner twice in one week as the food was so nice and the pub very close to the cottage we were staying in. The food was again was excellent and menu varied. Highly recommended especially the main courses.

Stayed overnight so had dinner and breakfast. This is a lovely old Inn in a quaint village a wee bit off the beaten track but easily accessible. Both staff and patrons are very friendly and sociable especially Fiona the owner who has a great gift for keeping the customers happy. I arrived in the afternoon and had a couple of...

Had a meal here before however this was our first overnight stay. Built in the 1600's the building is full of period features low ceilings, open fire places, exposed brick work and wooden beams. Our room maintained the period features throughout which I love. All tea, coffee, water, chocolates and toiletries supplied complimentary. Beds and pillows extremely comfortable and spotlessly...

Came here as a family of seven on a sunday night while glamping locally. Food was fabulous. Service although under pressure as it was so busy was good but slow. Would definately come back and would certainly recommend.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Traditional family owned country house hotel, pub & restaurant tucked away near Thornhill just outside Stirling, serving the finest food & ale since 1635. For the homely touch, we have 3 log burning fires, including a huge open fireplace in one of the dining rooms. The accommodation upstairs is of an excellent standard and the views from the windows capture the essence of being in the heart of Scotland with the magnificent scenery on its doorstep. The Lion and Unicorn is the perfect place to spend a few days soaking up the true Scottish hospitality that we all want to discover. Full of friendly locals, it is one of the few Free Houses left in Scotland, with reasonable prices on beer. ... more   less
