Dinner & drinks

We had our evening meal here while staying in Dunblane. The meals were good & wholesome, no need for a dessert or starters as we were stuffed & we do have big appetites! Staff friendly, could do with a little modernising but its only a recommendation.

Great food, great atmosphere and warm welcoming staff. As soon as we walked in we were greeted with a welcoming smile. The bar staff were attentive and a pleasure to deal with . We ordered food and it was delicious and fresh. We will be back. =)

Don't normally do this type of thing but needed to mention and praise the Staff at these premises. Particular mention for the young guy who worked behind the bar. Forgot to ask his name. The service he gave during dinner and drinks was far superior to top quality restaurant's and Hotels. Food for a gastro pub was excellent. Also they... More

To escape the horizontal hail, we popped in for Sunday lunch. Sky sports were showing the days footie which was welcome. Good menu choices, staff attentive & food arrived promptly. Portion sizes were a little smaller than we were expecting for the price but were delicious & filling. Presentation was done well. The man who served us was very friendly... More

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.
