This cavernous pub serves pretty standard pub grub in a nice location right in the centre of the city, at the base of the city walls. Good food at reasonable prices, great if you are on a budget. They had offers on too, which made it even more reasonable.
Favorite Dish: I like my pub grub - scampi and chips followed by chocolate fudge cake!

This is part of a chain that has restaurants in a few locations in Scotland. I had previously been to the one in Edinburgh so expected to get a good meal here. Its a Chinese/Asian buffet restaurant so of course there is a wide choice of starters, main dishes & accompaniements to choose from.
Favorite Dish: I love their honeyed chicken especially, yum! The squid dish was lovely for something different to try.

We had a late lunch/snack here before tackling the Castle etc.
I had beef stew, and my better half had vegetable broth. Both were served with crusty bread. My stew was excellent - didn't try the broth, but it seemed to hit the spot on a cold, wet & windy mid winter afternoon.
It's self service, so quick. It cost me over £13 however, so I have my doubts about the value for money.
The place is lovely - so maybe that makes up for the prices.
It has a rooftop terrace which must be fun in nice weather.
Favorite Dish: Beef stew - really stuck to my ribs.

This is just a basic tearoom/cafe but we had a really yummy cooked Scottish breakfast here both days of my most recent trip. They have a variety of options from a simple filled roll or omellette, up to a full cooked breakfast. Prices are very reasonable, portions generous and service was quick and friendly. Only down side maybe is that it doesn't open until 9am so if you want an earlier start it wouldn't be an option.
Of course they also do lunch - usual stuff like toasties, baked potatoes etc
Favorite Dish: There were two full breakfast options - the "small" breakfast was £3.90 [thereby cheaper than the £4 continental breakfast at our accomodation] including tea or coffee and got you a choice of 6 items from the list. The "big" breakfast was 8 items for slightly more. I had bacon, 2 sliced sausage, toast, baked beans and scrambled egg and could also have chosen mushrooms, tomatoes, black pudding or to have eggs poached or fried etc. They really didn't skimp on portions and we actually didn't eat lunch either day other than a bar of chocolate or something as we were so full from breakfast! More time to sightsee!!

I've always liked this fish and chip / Italian restaurant in the centre of Stirling, but got a pleasant surprise when my wife and I went there last Thursday to discover they do a buffet lunch on Thursdays and Fridays. Downstairs is the Fish tea section: bread, butter, battered fish, chips, and a pot of tea. Upstairs is the a la carte Italian and the buffet. There were a number of cold starters, soup, pasta, 2 casseroles, pizza, pasta and pastries and fresh fruit salad for desert.The cost? £5.99! Good value, tasty food, friendly staff, and close to all the sights of Stirling.
And don't be surprised at the combination of chip shop and Italian - Fish and chip shops in Scotland have traditionally been run by Italian families for many years.

I bring this pub for two reasons:
- First: I had lunch there
- Second: It's just an example about having meals in pubs (or drinks or meals + drinks)
As many of you know, pubs are something very typical in the United Kingdom, and many (or maybe all of them), serve meals.
Favorite Dish: The website offers a list of Pubs & Bars in Stirling.

This is a very small independent take away and cafe which does a wide variety of sandwiches but the reason I keep goign back is for the very good strong coffee - something that's it hard to find particularly in the chain coffee houses. They've recently started making weaker one shot coffees so make sure you specify if you want the teeth rattling 2 shot variety.
They don't have tables, apart from 2 outside, but a bar with stools.
Favorite Dish: Coffee, coffee, coffee - oh, and the cakes are respectable too.

This shop is a family run bakery/tearoom and shop. After our walk to the Callander Crags we really wanted a cup of coffee so we went there. The coffee was good and we had a currant slice with it that was fresh and tatsy. For those of you that do not know what a currant slice is - it is two layers of sweet pastry with a layer of currants between. They are in fact known in my family by the not so tasty name of fly graveyards because of the currants looking like little black flies.
After our coffee we bought a freshly made sandwich in the shop - it was good. Koos does not like butter so we always have to make sure there is none on sandwiches we buy. This sandwich was freshly made for us. We also got a piece of "black bun" a very rich heavy fruit cake between two layers of sweet pastry. It is traditionally eaten at New Year. We brought it home with us and are eating it now.
Favorite Dish: The restaurant is not fancy - an old fashioned village tearoom but the coffee was good, and everyone was very friendly.

We walked past, the first time, without noticing it. How could we? Purple and Red! What a daring combination! The restaurant looked brand new. The staff was friendly, swift and attentive. We ordered Tandoori special and Tandoori Salmon. With rice and maan. It was both wonderful. Very balanced taste, large portions.
From Sunday to Thursday 10% off the lunch menu and 20% discount on the a la carte.
PS: do not order an espresso. Their equipment is impressive, but the result very poor.
Favorite Dish: Tandoori special and Tandoori Salmon. The salmon was barbecued and spiced, very tasty.

The Unicorn Cafe is a relaxing place to stop for some lunch. The room is bright and airy with nice touches in the nooks and crannies. All cold food is self service - just select what you like and pay at the till. Hot food is also on offer here with a good choice of light meals along with beer and wine. Service is friendly and efficient the staff go out of their way to make this a pleasant place to eat. One other thing they offer is a computer aided virtual tour of the Castle for visitors with walking difficulties this facility is offered free of charge = I thought this was a brilliant idea.
Favorite Dish: We both had a large mug of coffee I choose a hot meal of baked potato smothered with baked beans - hubby chose chicken and mayo sandwich all very enjoyable for a quick lunch break
