Since taking over the venue, we have been working hard to transform the building into a truly special pub, restaurant and coffee house.

Whatever reason you may have for visiting us – a healthy or hearty breakfast, a coffee with home-baking beside our wood-burning stove or downstairs with the kids in the play area, fantastic food with family in our restaurant, a glass of wine or a local beer with friends in our bar or on the riverside terrace – we assure you of a friendly welcome from staff who care.

Please let us know when you book if you are bringing your dog and we will reserve a suitable table.

The Riverside really is our dream come true and we look forward to welcoming you through its doors.

    The staff were so lovely, but our chips were a little undercooked and the place was freezing. I was actually uncomfortable I was so cold. I had to use my coat as a blanket and my feet were chilled to the bone. Our mains were so lovely though!

    Food was great and the staff were excellent. Lovely to have a nice fire next to us as it was a bit draughty. I really appreciated having a table with a bit of extra room, as requested at booking. It was a lovely atmosphere and we were not rushed out the door like some venues.

    A wonderful catch up with friends in Dunblane. We were allocated a booth which was ideal. The staff were attentive without being over the top. Food was generally very good and a great choice including the Xmas menu. Will definitely not be our last visit.

    Nice pub style restaurant with log burner.. Good, prompt service but food could have been hotter. Expensive in comparison to what else is also available locally and was quite noisy at times. Young staff team very polite and helpful.

    Fabulous bar serving excellent food. Great friendly and professional service. Wonderfully cosy and welcoming environment. The log burner was fab on a very cold and frosty day! All the staff were very accommodating. Even remembered it was my hubby’s birthday and very kindly gave him a free pint! Shall be recommending to all my family and friends and hopefully was the first of many visits. It has a lovely outdoor terrace too so I imagine it would be a great setting at any time of the year whatever the Scottish weather throws at you ! Cx
