The service was fantastic, Rachel our waitress for the evening was very attentive without being intrusive. My starter was the least enjoyable part of the meal, the pulled pork was dry and the salad needed some kind of dressing, whole thing didn't work together. But hubbies fishcake was great. For mains; I had the halibut, mash and wilted spinach and... More

The fish here is excellent - hake, cod, halibut mmmmmmmm! Sensibly priced - would really recommend. For such a big restaurant the feeling is surprisingly cosy - lots of beautiful tweed and wood paneling.

Great variety and excellent quality of ingredients. Staff were lovely, and decor of the restaurant is really relaxing and ambient. Absolutely delish!

I admit it was with trepidation we booked the Kailyard for a family celebration after mixed reviews on Tripadvisor. However, I cannot fault this restaurant and the staff. The menu was varied and the quality of the dishes we chose was excellent. Fish was fresh and beautifully cooked. Lamb and steak options were succulent and cooked to demand. Sides were... More

We took advantage of an itison deal for 3 course Sunday lunch, with glass of wine & use of spa facilities. The Kailyard is part of the Hilton Double Tree Dunblane Hydro. The hotel itself is very impressive & in lovely grounds. The interior is very comfortable & beautifully furnished. We received a lovely welcome & were sat a table... More

Dining experience suffers due to overcrowding of the hotel. The set menu was no longer available at 8pm. The substitute entree was so tough it could not be eaten. No alternative was offered. Breakfast was average at best with scrambled egg being heavily salted. Inadequate staff to provide coffee and tea in a timely way. Very disappointing.

I ate here at the invitation of a client, lunch being served in the lounge. The choice was good, the food was faultless and wine by the glass reasonably priced. Service was friendly and efficient. No complaints. But lunch seemed very expensive compared to the £30 for 3 courses apparently offered on the dinner menu I read.

My wife treated me to an overnight in a suite here a few months back. The rooms themselves were very comfortable, with great views over Dunblane & everything you could ask for. Even complimentary wine & chocolates on arrival. Anyway, having eaten here before, dinner was of the quality & standard you would expect from a place backed by Nick... More

The Kailyard's website talks of traditional elegance blending with contemporary style, but I suggest that allowance should be made for the copywriter's imaginative approach to his or her task! This is a sprawling restaurant, with not a lot of space between bare wood tables, which would appear to cater primarily for hotel guests on a dinner inclusive package, and in... More
