“Excellent and great value for money”
Reviewed May 29, 2013

Hi there all. My husband and I visited Olivers recently on our way north. My husband was expecting a greasy spoon, secretly however, I was expecting much more. We ordered lunch, for him a homemade burger and I had a cheese and pickle baked potato. The potato had a side salad that had an amazing dressing and something that you don't always find. Hubby said the burger was one of the best he has ever tasted. It looked amazing.

The food was fresh and piping hot and so tasty. The surroundings are so different from the Little Chef establishment the grill once was. We regularly travel this road and will certainly visit again. Can't praise it enough.

“Excellent food and service”
Reviewed May 27, 2013

This is an excellent restaurant that you could easily drive past on the way north. It was not clear until we were almost past it that it was open. We suggest that management place a sign with opening hours a mile south to assist potential customers. Our food was excellent: my burger was very good and my wife stated that her chicken tikka masala was one of the best she had tasted. Well worth the Excellent rating.

“Definatley not a greasy spoon, fine dining at the roadside!”
Reviewed May 9, 2013

We ate here on 08/05/2013 as our usually place cancelled, as a group of 10 looking for somewhere to eat while having a committee meeting our hosts were able to host us at short notice and provide excellent food and service, i had the lasagne which was fab and a sticky toffee pudding what a treat served at resturant standard not the usually ping pong stuff or greasy servings at a road side cafe. I hope they make a success as they deserve it we have now decided to return for our next meeting. Great price £135 for 10 drinks, main course and dessert and they stayed open until we finished our meeting we were very appreciative of this.

“Deserves to be a Sucess”
Reviewed May 6, 2013

Decided to pop out for a bite to eat from Dunblane on a wet Bank Holiday based on the reviews and we were very pleased we did . The chicken and rice soup was very tasty and the MacnCheese was as good others had stated with nicely dressed salad and very garlicky garlic bread. Loved the big pot of tea. While you cant hide the fact it used to be a Little Chef totally the owners have done a good job in going it a more warm feel with a comfy area for just having a drink . The staff were very helpful and determined to please their visitors . We will be back to try Sunday lunch or a steak and we really hope this place takes off cos it really deserves to.
