David Ross left this review about Tyndrum Inn

Eye-catchingly painted in yellow and black, the Inn sits just off the main road through Tyndrum and also the West Highland Way long distance footpath. It's the only proper pub in the village, although there are also a couple of hotels and a licensed cafe. As such, it's often busy with walkers stopping off for a drink or a meal or using the overnight accommodation. The Inn consists of a sizeable bar with side rooms, one of which contains a pool table, a glass covered patio and an outdoor area offering great views of the surrounding hills. There is also a separate restaurant in the adjoining building. On draught are Amstel lager (£3.65 a pint), Fosters lager (£3.40 a pint), Three Hop lager, Caledonian 80 Shilling, Guinness, Strongbow cider and, on hand pump, Edinburgh Castle Ale and Deuchars IPA.

Enlarged pub with restaurant and rooms and the only pub in the village. The main bar is a pretty perfunctory affair, a large open room painted a nasty salmon yellow colour and carpeted in tartan. The lounge room to the left is decorated in a similar style though this has some tube banquettes. A pool and darts area (in which you’re unable to play simultaneously) is located to the rear and an atypical late 80s conservatory at the front which does provide a decent view. A large TV was showing Sky Sports News and later, at my (and others) request, Sunderland’s relegation escape match even though the barman and his mate clearly wanted the dead-rubber Chelsea game. Noted a large collection of miniatures above the bar and a large mounted stags head. Two ales on, Edinburgh Castle (fair) and Deuchars IPA (naff). Unless you’re doing the WHW, there isn’t really a compelling reason to stop by here.

Excellent pub - Paddy's Diner no longer. Now a restaurant. Recommended.

Will Larter left this review about Tyndrum Lodge Hotel

The hotel appears to be accommodation only, with eating and drinking opportunities now offered in the slightly incongruous Paddy's Rock'n'Roll Diner in the modern extension alongside. Inside it's not as awful as perhaps it could have been, with the only rock'n'roll themed artefacts that I could see being a couple of dancing statues - that's statues of dancers, rather than actual moving statues.

There are some fairly standard pub tables and chairs, a long bar at the back, and an area to the right with a pool table, separated by half-panels. A collection of lanterns hangs from the ceiling, and a brass band's instruments from various walls.

On the bar were the usual Scottish fonts, only one of which did not feature the words "cold" or "super chilled". However, even the font thus singled out was dispensing what to my teeth felt like very cold McEwans 80/-. OK, it soon warmed up while I wrote these notes, but even then didn't really taste of much. (The petrol station along the road at the Green Wellie Stop has a good selection of bottled ales, one of which accompanied me to my tent after I left here.)
