Food was delicious and reasonably priced. Much to our pleasure, staff had... More

The title says it all really. The pub has cask ails and I enjoyed the pint I had. I had the gammon steak which was reformed and just OK. My wife had the chicken which she said was excellent and thoroughly enjoyed. The waitress was pleasant and the service reasonably quick. We would probably return if in Dunblane again.
