Haute cuisine

Part of Forth Valley College’s catering school, The Gallery Restaurant on the Stirling Campus offers inventive cuisine and breath-taking views. This bright restaurant offers fine dining at very affordable prices with views of the Wallace Monument and the Ochil Hills. 

A casual bite

Darnley Coffee House is a cosy café tucked under the 16th-century house where Mary Queen of Scots’ lover used to stay, serving up home baking, soups and a good vegan menu. Or try local favourite Birds & Bees for rustic pub grub in a converted barn.

Traditional Scottish

Cosy bistro Brea serves up locally sourced award-winning Scottish fare from haggis to fresh West Coast seafood. For an Austrian twist on Scottish cuisine, head to Hermann’s for cullen skink and Wiener schnitzel.

International fare

For authentic Italian fare, try Mamma Mia on Spittal Street and their fresh homemade pasta. For something a bit different, head to The Kilted Kangaroo for kangaroo burgers and live entertainment – Glow in the dark Viking fire festival, anyone?
