Eating & Drinking Guide

This review is taken from the 2013 edition.

Update: The Inn at Kippen was bought by Mark and Alice Silverwood (formally of the Harbour Café/Venachar Lochside) in January 2014. The below review refers to the previous owners, we've retained it for information.

A cosy dining room and convivial environment make the Inn at Kippen well worth a detour. While the food verges towards the finer end of the scale, owner Gordon Wright has made a conscious effort not to get too carried away, keeping the atmosphere, and the prices, relaxed. Instead of changing wholesale, the menu tends to ebb and flow, indicative of availability and desirability, with the odd regulars’ favourite (like a twice-baked parmesan soufflé) surviving long-term.
