This simply amazing traditional fish and chip shop in the picturesque village of Bridge of Allan in Scotland is the ideal meeting spot for a group of friends, the perfect place to catch up with a relative or even if you're desperate for some of the best food in Scotland.
The hugely popular venue is situated towards the outskirts of the quaint Scottish village, just outside the city of Stirling and a stone throw away from the university, and is why students are so fond of the mouth-watering treats that are on offer. The café is also favoured by the residents of the beautiful village, and is one of the reasons it remains on the map as a popular tourist attraction, perhaps why the food here is globally renowned.
The tantalising menu comprises all the chip shop favourites from the catch of the day to the delicious beef burgers, from the wonderful chicken nuggets to the traditional chips, and even includes a whole range of amazing home-made ice cream in every flavour under the sun.
There is not a bad word to be said of this homely café, nor an unfavourable review to be found, with celebrities such as the more-local tennis star Andy Murray known to have visited the attraction. Situated right on the edge of this deceivingly quiet village, The Allanwater Café provides the perfect opportunity to delve into some of the tastiest meals going.
Running since 1902 and more often than not queueing out onto the footpath, this relaxing venue is perfectly situated within a suitable distance from countless top attractions in Scotland, while the excellent customer service is second to none. Unparalleled views can also be obtained while sitting in with your food, namely upstairs, yet food can of course be taken out and enjoyed on the nearby benches on a peaceful Scottish evening. With all produce sourced locally, the café is simple in its entirety, yet the work going on behind the scenes is truly commendable.
