The Tyndrum Inn Restaurant (Tyndrum, Scotland) 2021 : Review

The Visit

V: 28/08/2021

It was coming up to my dads birthday, and I didn’t really know what to get him. I had a few wee gifts but I wanted to do something different for him, so I gave him a Scottish drive to Glencoe and surroundings as he has never been up this far.

The Food

I have never been here but due to many places being super busy and no food left, we opted to stop here and try it out.

Starter :

Spicy Chicken Wings in sweet chilli sauce £6.50

On arrival this looked really nice, and I was very hungry at this point so it was a quick photo and straight to eating.

Oh these were cooked perfectly and had a good wee kick to them. I really liked the flavour and it was a great starter.

Portion size was good and they all had a good amount of meat on them.

Main Course

Black & Blue Burger £12.50
beef burger with Cajun spices, stilton, chips and salad garnish

I have not had a beef burger for a while, normally I opt for chicken but today I decided to go for one.

I like stilton and thought lets try this burger, and I am so glad I did.

On arrival this was a big burger, and again I couldn’t wait to start digging in.

The flavours were really good, and the stilton added a great lovely taste. The burger was perfectly cooked, and had a nice flavour to it.

This was a nice burger and I am glad I choose it today.

The Drovers Inn (Loch Lomond) 2021 : Review

The Visit

Today I was with some friends, and we went for a drive to Glencoe, Fort William, The Glenfinnan Viaduct and ending here at The Drivers Inn for some food.

The Burger

Vegetable Burger £12.50
Crumbled vegetable burger served in a brioche bap. (add cheese/bacon £0.50p)

I really dont know why I ordered this, but I wanted to try something different and this is what caught my eye.

I decided to add some cheese as sometimes vegetable burgers can be dry without.

This was actually ok, the sauce and the cheese helped with the texture and flavour.

It was nice, and very filling.

Overall :

Firstly if you have never visited here, its a stop you have to tick off your visit list.

You can even just come here to sit and have a drink, and have a look at the cool inside decor or sit out the back and enjoy the views.

Food wise its ok, its more a place to go and grab a snack and drink and chat.

Strathaven Hotel Birthday Dinner 2021 : Review

The Visit

Tonight we had booked here for an early 90th birthday dinner for my grandpa, we have been here many times before and really enjoy it here.

The Food

Crispy Brie Wedges £8
onion chutney

I normally stick with the same starter but tonight I thought lets try something different.

This was very nice, the light crunch of the batter and the flavour of it all mixed with the chutney was perfect.

It was a perfect size for a starter and one that I would have again.

6oz Scotch Cheeseburger £13
baby gem, sweet chilli mango, fries

I have not had the burger her for a long long time, and this was different to the one from ages ago so I ordered it.

On arrival wow this was a massive burger, and smelled really good.

Now time to dig in.

This was some bite! the flavour was nice, the burger was tender and it all tasted really really good. My only comment would be it was just too thick, a little thinner would have really helped with a perfect bite but thats just a personal thing.

My Rating :

Rating: 4 out of 5.

Overall :

Tonight we all had a great night, very relaxing, filled with laughs and the birthday boy enjoyed his night.

Another really nice visit at the Strathaven Hotel and if you have never been add it to your list.
