A late review I know, but better late than not at all. After last year’s Christmas day lunch disaster (at another hotel/restaurant) it was time to look elsewhere. I saw what was on offer for Christmas lunch here and thought it worth a try. Our meal selections were Salmon and Roast Beef, huge portions, great selection of veg and very... More

We tried here because the posh restaurant at our hotel was fully booked and silly prices. We chose this as they said we could take the dogs in. Everyone was very nice to the dogs so that was a good start. Nice choice of pub food at fair prices. Ka had the sea bass special which was good. I had... More

I had been told that the food was good here by a number of locals, so I thought I would give it a turn on the big day! The starters were good, but when it came to my main it was another story, my Duck was over cooked & the frozen Sprouts you could hardly cut with a knife!! I... More

Was staying in Dunblane for a night and just happened to walk past. So popped in for a drink. Was made to feel so welcome by the staff especially the Manager, so we ended up staying for diner. Then live music started. So a quick drink ended up in us leaving at closing time. Can't compliment the staff enough!

Excellent range of beer, wine & spirits to was down the imaginative pub menue. well served portions served by a traditional voluptuous barmaid.In an ambiance of local frivolity.

North to Dunblane for a work assignment after a week's holiday in the south of France. Off the train and The Village Inn looks promising. Cheerful welcome, good menu. Food disappoints however - main course a bit greasy, oil needing changed? Sweet unexceptional. Very standard pub grub, not the best.

Just a cozy inn and fits the requirements of the locals. The food is acceptable but not one with a WOW factor. The service is good, hospitality is laced with warmth but pretty much a local dining place :)
