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.

Rating: 4 out of 5.

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.

My Rating :

Rating: 4 out of 5.

Tullie Inn (Balloch, Loch Lomond, ) : Review

V: 3rd August 2020


Today I took a drive down to Balloch to get some fresh air, and a late lunch come dinner.

I have visited Balloch many times, and I needed to clear my head and eat.

The Food

I have never been in here for food before, only coffee’s so it was going to be interesting to see how good the menu is.

Main Course :

Smoky Joe Burger £12.99
Beef chunk & brisket burger topped with slow cooked beef in a smoky sweet BBQ sauce, melted cheese slice and crispy streaky bacon.

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

I started with the burger, this had a very interesting but nice taste. Every bite was really nice, and the burger was very tender.

The chips were nice and crispy and had a nice taste, unfortunately they were just warm and no more so by the time I was finished my burger the chips were cold but it didn’t bother me too much.

IMG_6668

Location

Balloch Road
Balloch
G83 8LQ

Visit Date : 2nd April 2017
Today I attended the Lomond Shores SpringFest17 event, and after working up an appetite we all went for dinner.
This was my first time eating in here, my parents and my friends parents have been a few times but for me it was the first so I was looking forward to seeing what it was like.

Starter :

Blacksticks Blue cheese fondue £4.95
with vegetables and toasted rustic bread (V)

I decided after being a little bit of a pig today at the event, I would try and have a slightly healthier dinner….yes I did say slightly.

This was a perfect size for a starter, it wasn’t too filling that you would start thinking “oh I might not finish my main”.

The blue cheese dip was very nice, could have been a little stronger for me but thats just a personal thing.

The amount of vegetables you got with the dip, it could have had a few more as there was still lots of dip left over.

Overall it was a good starter and I would have it again.

Portion Size : 5
Flavour : 3.5
Presentation : 3

Main :

Broad bean and asparagus risotto £9.45
with roasted vine tomatoes and Gran Moravia cheese

For me this would have been a perfect risotto if it doesn’t have such large chunks of asparagus in it, if they were cute down to very small chunks it would be been really nice.

Portion Size : 5
Flavour : 4
Presentation : 4

Overall :

Overall todays meal was ok, if the risotto had smaller chunks of asparagus rather than the full thing and many of them I would have really had a nice meal.

I would go back here for dinner, and maybe try a few other items off the menu.
