We have been coming to the Dunblane Hydro and by extension to this restaurant on-and -off for more than thirty years now. Our last visit a couple of years ago left me underwhelmed; happily matters have improved since then. It's still not really fine dining but it did provide two days of consistent and pleasant dinners. It's still not worth... More

We went here for dinner a couple of weeks ago. 3 course set menu for just under £30, reasonably priced decent wine. The staff were lovely, and service was efficient and friendly. Cocktails were superb and even although it was very busy we were well looked after. Food was delicious and attention to detail was so good. Highly recommend this... More

Great place to dine and I highly recommend it. Good menu, not too many options to bamboozle you ! I had the Haggis Wantons as a starter and the lamb for a main, first class couldn't be faulted. Nice place for a romantic meal !

Excellent 3 course dinner, good selection food and wine, lots of local, or at least Scottish produce. 2nd evening we ate int eh conservatory part which was quite noisy due to the large parties also eating there.

Had lovely meal in the Kailyard. All food was to a good standard, lovely and fresh and very tasty. Each dish had a little something 'special', loved the sides (rocket and Parmesan salad and truffled fries) Cocktails were nice too if a little pricey. Staff in the restaurant were polite and efficient but made no effort to be friendly.

Food was distinctly average, and supplements to be paid on several items on the menu, why? Service was ok, but staff seemed overwhelmed. If Nick Nairn is putting his name to it then the whole thing needs a shake up

This is the first time I had visited the restaurant and I was impressed . The quality of the food was excellent and well presented. We had the fish dishes which were excellent and the staff accommodated my father request for fish and chips ,which was not on the menu without any fuss. My marmalade pudding was as light as... More

We were given a present of a weekend here and I can say it was fabulous. Food was excellent& staff were friendly and helpful. Room & swimming pool also brilliant. Dunblane is a lovely town. We had a great bar lunch at the Riverside then a couple of drinks at the Tappit Hen in the evening. Lovely walks round about.... More
