Visited here yesterday whilst showing family some of Scotland. Have visited before and will definitely be back again. Our visitors enjoyed the visit too, definitely a nice little pit stop to refuel when visiting Loch Lomond. Staff are very friendly and attentive.

The decor was like eating in a large canteen. Our table was unsteady and at to be levelled by the waiter . The food was very disappointing, average at best .... More

I was staying on a boat in the marina. The Boat House is in a beautiful setting and has a nice feel and ambience to match. The staff were on the ball, very freindly and efficient. The food is good but very expensive by a large factor, £19 burger!! I do not like an enforced 10% service charge for 2... More

A regular at Cameron House, (in fact we were married there a few years ago) And members of the Carrick we were so disappointed in a recent visit to the Boathouse for Dinner. Firstly the decor and ambiance, the tables in the restaurant have been changed to very small cafe like tables and chairs, hardly able to fit 4 people... More

Good food, good service but a bit overpriced for what it was. The drink is relatively way more expensive than the food and is verging on the ridiculous. Enjoyed it but have had similar quality food at far cheaper prices.

This was a reasonable place which would normally score highly based on facilities, product and location. However the poor attitude of the bar staff let it down. After asking to pay our bill three times we eventually got the bill. No one came near us after that and when taking said bill to the bar to pay was snapped at... More

Decided to give this place a second chance with a visit. It has been re-organised and is now much more of a Bisto feel to the dining area. The service was reasonably good but the prices are far in excess of the experience. Whilst expecting to pay a little over the top as it is part of the Hotel complex... More

My husband and I came for lunch, we had the beef burger with red onion relish, bacon and cheese. All the staff were very polite, friendly and attentive, the food was delicious, the environment pleasant and the views beautiful over the Loch. Really enjoyable and would recommend. You do have to wait a while for the food to come, but... More
