We stopped off in Dunblane on our way home from weekend away. We don't really no Dunblane and only went here as we managing to get parking space right outside door. This is a lovely wee pub, spotlessly clean eating area and good choice of both snacks & full meals. We both had panini's which were delicious and well presented.... More

Have visited and eaten several times recently as we've passed through the town. Reliably good quality and variety of food, friendly staff, pleasant atmosphere and clean, comfortable surroundings - what more could you ask ? Will definitely use again in future and have already recommended to friends.

Just had rump steak at this great little pub and must send my compliments to the chef. My steak was to die for and the wife, who's a chef herself, had great fish n chips. Staff were attentive and food was great value. Hope to visit again in the future! !

Spent a lovely afternoon at the Village Inn last Saturday. Chef William put out lovely Pate and Oat Cakes during the afternoon which was a nice touch a good reason to stay that bit longer. Returned in the evening and enjoyed the live entertainment. Good pint of Tennents' Lager !!!
