Warm welcome, food available all day with lots of choice- girls at the bar were welcoming and helpful Worth a visit - especially to get you out if you are staying up the hill at the Hydro - and the girls will order you a taxi to get you back up the hill

Tasty, hot, and unpretentious food, at very reasonable prices, served by friendly, attentive staff. We returned for seconds just 2 days later.

Grateful to find the Village Inn Pub after an afternoon of walking around the village and Cathedral grounds.

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.
