Loch Lomond restaurants are well strung out.
The loch covers a vast area, some twenty four miles long and six miles wide, and the villages are scattered all around, so knowing where to find the restaurants should be quite helpful.
I have only featured five on the ones that I’ve eaten in, some are on the lochside and some are a little bit further inland, but I can recommend them for good service and quality food at reasonable prices.
Some good Loch Lomond restaurants :
The Lodge On Loch Lomond Hotel
Tel : 01436 860201
If you’re on the west side of the loch you must call in to Luss, not just for the restaurant, but because it’s a really beautiful little conservation village. The Lodge does two course special buffet lunches which are good value, and a reasonably priced dinner menu.
The House of Darroch
Tel : 01389 830448
This used to be “The Hungry Monk” but has now been transformed into a retail and food centre. It was my personal favourite when it was The Hungry Monk, but I have not visited since it has changed. The menu is not quite as tempting as it was before, but I’m quite sure the food on offer will be of a similarly high standard. From the A82 westbound, follow signs for Balloch. Gartocharn is five miles further on.
The Oak Tree Inn
Tel : 01360 870357
On the east side of the loch, this family owned bar & restaurant offers some really good Scottish fare. Daily Seasonal Specials are a feature of the menu and snacks, bar meals and afternoon teas are also served.
Craigard Tea Room
51 Sinclair Street
Tel : 01436 677787
Inland on the west side of the loch, this Helensburgh tea room has expanded into a muti award winnng restaurant. You can have hot filled rolls, and light lunches in the tea room, and full Table D’Hote and A La Carte menus in the restaurant. It has a nice friendly atmosphere.
The Cruin Bar and Restaurant
Loch Lomond Castle Lodges
Tel : 01389 850588
Situated on the A82 between Arden and Luss, The Cruin offers set menus, full A La Carte and childrens menus. It’s quite expensive, but the food is really delicious, especially their home-made dessert selection.
This is a very small selection of restaurants in Loch Lomond, there are many cafes and tearooms scattered around the loch, so you’ll never be stuck when you feel like eating.
