We visited on a Monday night and had the restaurant through the rear all to ourselves, it was nice n cosy. The food was very reasonably priced and the service was great. Well worth a visit, with a good specials board.

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

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!

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.
