River House (Stirling, Scotland) : Review

V: 12th January 2020


I decided to try somewhere new today and came across this place.

Looking Around

Driving up it looks so beautiful, I don’t know if this is still some Christmas decorations or these illuminated trees will be there all the time but wow look how amazing this looked.

Heading inside again the wow factor continued, this places was so nice inside and the atmosphere instantly was very relaxing.

Appetiser

Breaded Haggis Cake £6.95

Champit potatoes, turnip purée, crisp leek, whisky mustard sauce

I was going to order my go to starter then decided nah, lets order something different and this dish jumped out at me.

Visually this looked really nice on arrival, and it was a good portion size as a starter.

Taste time…

This was very good, the haggis has the consistency of a burger and everything together wow the flavours were just amazing.

Main Course :

Simon Howie Prime Steak Burger £12.95

Milk bun, traditional burger sauce, fries, onion ring.

Added extras : Cheddar & bacon £1.50 each

Wow this was a big portion, and the smell was amazing…time to dig in.

I am not an onion ring fan, so I left this.

The burger as a whole was very good, it was very thick and the flavours plus my little extras made it very tasty.

For me it could have used a little more sauce, but thats a personal preference.

Child Friendly: N/A as its a pub      Accepts: Cash & Card


I was recently told that if your surname is Munro you get 50% discount here, so I looked into this place to see what it was like.

Today I thought I would go and visit and see what its like.

On entering it’s a very modern looking pub, very spacious and very clean looking.

We looked for a table and sat.

Where we seated was in the door to the left, a little area where you could look out at the street. The table behind us has a young guy playing his Guitar and singing, and a young girl singing a long with him so we had our very own entertainment.

The Food :

OH MY GOD!!!!!! when this arrived it was MASSIVE.

Yes I tried to take a bite but even though I do have a big mouth, I was unsuccessful so I resorted to taking one burger out and eating it that way.

The burger was nice and had a nice flavour, the black pudding adding the extra flavour it needed. For me it could have had more cheese on it, as it was a little dry yes I could have added sauce for me trying anything the first time its about how it is served to me.

Was it the best burger I have had? no…but it was an OK burger and I would have it again. Though in saying that I would have to not eat for the whole day, as I did leave a little which is very unusual for me as I was very full so next time I will make sure I have lots of space to finish it.

Portion Size : 5
Flavour : 3.5
Presentation : 4.5

Overall :

I did mention that I was a Munro, and showed proof which gave me 50% discount of my food. The waiter was kind enough to let me know that this is normally done with bookings, but he was OK to do it for me today.

Overall it was a nice time, service and food was good. My only two issues were one that I didn’t manage to finish my burger, and two that there could have been more cheese on the burger…..but that’s a personal thing.

I would like to go back and try a few more dishes.
