If you are looking for food - tough! It is no longer served. Opens for drinks only at 4.00pm on Mondays to Fridays. Punch Taverns need to plough some investment into this place NOW! It is run down, dowdy and depressing. From being one of...More

Stayed at dunblane on Sunday. 25th very busy therefore. Long wait for meals. To arrive. And also. A few things not available. As busy not good. Enough. Hotel overstretched themselves. Staff very stressed. And constantly. Apologising will be back but not a holiday. Weekend.

I have been here a few times since my friends moved to Dunblane. Always received warm welcome from the bar staff. It has real feel of a wee local bar. It also has 35ml spirits that are reasonably priced. The prices in general are actually...More

Visit on a regular basis, more out of habit than desire. The beer quality can be poor sometimes unfortunately. The whole place needs a serious makeover, the seats are stained and poor condition. One or other of the ladies toilets is always out of order....More

Just popped in for a beer, nice friendly pub in Dunblane. Bar staff enjoying mixing with locals and tourists alike. Would benefit from a refurb as it does look quite tired and dated.

Having eaten there thrice before without major problems, I took a group of seven there on Saturday. Beer-battered fish and chips was served, but the fish was raw; the plates were cold, and the wait for service was long. There were hardly any other customers....More

A party of seven looking for lunch. After an hour the first meals started to arrive. Despite the long wait, the plates were cold. The food was cold. The battered fish was still raw. We appreciated the sympathetic service, but this was not a place...More

The food couldn't be faulted, fresh, tasty and good value, however the lounge bar is very dated and could do with upgrade as it is quite dark inside.
