Regular, normal Scottish pub. Friendly staff and chatty locals. Regular Burger is awesome, homemade and topped with bacon and cheese at no extra cost, comes with chips, coleslaw and side salad. I judge a bar/restaurant on there burgers, this is the best I've had in a long time. 10/10.

We had the macaroni and chicken enchiladas. Both large places and very nice. Staff were friendly. Would go back if in the area.

We were looking for lunch in Dunblane and wanted to try somewhere we hadn't eaten before but the problem was that it was 3pm!!! We thought we'd give The Village Inn a try. I kind of wished we had turned around and looked elsewhere but we had been driving around for a while trying to get parked etc. I think... More

My friends recently moved to Dunblane and thought we would try this place. Eat here twice now and enjoyed it both times. The service could be improved upon if I had to find a negative.

Went to Dunblane for a conference. We hadn't booked any where to eat and after being refused at one local place, we found this one. Had a pub feel and football on tV when we entered so we expected pub grub. A bright, bubbly girl took us to a table and gave us menus. Nice range of food including steak,... More

Stopped off with my wife on a glorious day in Dunblane. Very friendly welcome from the barmaid, quick efficient service. Drinks served very quickly, food was slower and at one point I wondered if it was coming. However, when it arrived it was marvellous. Proper burgers, fabulous roll, excellent chips and lovely coleslaw. Was excellent food for a great price.
