There’s a new taste in town at the Tasty Cottage in Bannockburn.

The takeaway joint offers a wide range of delicious dishes from the best fish and chips in Stirling right through to southern fried chicken and freshly made pizzas. All of the produce used to make their five star dishes is as fresh as you like, and everything is made in house, from scratch.

The crème de la crème of the Tasty Cottage is of course their handmade burgers. The beef is minced on site, and is crafted together by Londoner Sam Noor, who runs the fast food shop.

He said: “Our food is made from the freshest of ingredients. That might mean it takes a little longer to prepare, but it’s so worth it in the end.

“We even make our own fries. Although things like our kebabs aren’t made here obviously, they’re the kind of kebab you can eat when you’re sober, it’s just so tasty.” Tasty Cottage was only opened last month after an extensive refurb to bring it up to the highest spec. The friendly team is made up of passionate local people who are eager to learn about their trade and always provide service with a smile.

Sam, who has brought a wealth of experience to the table, continued: “I was keen to get local people on board. This is my first business in Scotland, and I hope it’s the first of many.

“My team have that good Scottish spirit.” After kindly inviting us along, The Stirling News sampled a range of the food on their extensive menu and was impressed with the outstanding quality of their dishes. From the pizza to the burger, the meals are more what you would expect from a restaurant than a fast food joint. This was qualified by the sheer number of customers who passed through the doors in the time we were there after only opening a few weeks ago.

Tasty Cottage is open seven days a week, from 4pm-11pm Sunday to Thursday, and from 4pm-12pm on Fridays and Saturdays. They are based at 23 Newmarket Bannockburn FK7 8JB. The team provides an excellent delivery service stretching far and wide, and can be contacted on 01786 811911 and 01786 358542. You can also visit their website,
