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.

We went to the village inn on a Friday evening with 2 dogs for something to eat and felt very welcome. The food was good standard pub grub and my steak was cooked very well. The staff made us feel that they appreciated is being there and looked after us well. The pub got busy later on in the evening... More

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.

Food ok, bit overpriced for some dishes, not very modern surrounding. Pretty quiet when we were there which was a Friday afternoon on a bank holiday weekend.

We, along with three strangers arrived at the Inn for coffee at 11.54 to be told they did not open until 12.00. They surely could have invited us in out of the cold? We wandered down the street and found an excellent restaurant with amazing scones, we will be back. The trio with us enjoyed their coffee so much they... More

Really nice food, great pub lunch, generous portions and excellent service. Only draw back is that they forgot our sides, but in fairness it didn't matter too much as the rest of the food so filling

nipped in for a drink, and was greeted by the young friendly staff. Nice, old pub, with plenty of room, and rooms. Was busy for tea time, and many people were eating, so, again, always a good sign.

Good beer, great food, friendly staff, clean toilets and a welcoming atmosphere. I loved it and will definitely return. Well worth a visit, especially for a meal and a local beer.
