The Riverside Dunblane
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.

Excellent food and service as always. Lovely place to spend a Saturday evening,
Imaginative food with friendly service and a good buzz about the place. Warmer than previous visit (in December) and less draughty this time! Service was a little slow but we weren't in any hurry.
Great venue close to railway station. Excellent Covid compliance. Felt very safe. Service was excellent, helpful and nothing was too much trouble. Lovely cosy booth, not too noisy even though the restaurant was fully booked. Food was delicious from both the regular and Vegetarian menus. Great choice.
Toilets were spotless and had really nice products.
We had a lovely lunch and have already re booked. Great place for a friends, family and couples.
Good vegan options, possibly the best in Dunblane. Good selection of Fallen cans.
Absolutely fantastic food.
We love the Riverside. Beautiful decor, friendly and attentive staff. We both had steak burgers which were fantastic.
Booked for lunch online, seated quickly on arrival. Dog friendly.
Although very busy staff very pleasant and efficient.
All main meals were delicious. Good choice on menu of all 3 courses.
First visit but will be back.
We had a great starter and main. The food was delicious and we had great service. There were a nice selection of beers too.
Unfortunately the last 2 times we’ve been to eat. We get steak next to a table with very young children. Screaming and constantly leaving the table for a walk . It would be so easy for the riverside to use the back section for family eating, leaving the front for adults. We will not be back . Which is a shame as the food and value are good.
Excellent as it always is whenever we visit - the chicken and haggis main course was especially good
We booked at short notice and had no problem getting a table in the dog-friendly area near to the wood burner. Baked Camembert starter was superb, as was the shin of beef main course. Service was good as always and there was plenty of ‘buzz’ about the place but not too loud. This was our second visit within a week, and we were not disappointed. Excellent food, lovely setting, efficient and friendly staff and a good choice of beers and wines.
Lovely food and staff (even when we had a long and overly complicated coffee order).
Place can get quite noisy when everyone is in but everyone is segregated well for covid reasons
Lovely food and service. Welcoming place and will visit again .
Restaurant and staff were lovely. Food was very good but found some of the portions a bit small especially the beef dish considering the price….
Great, friendly welcome & good food & service. Great value. Thanks
Nice surroundings pleasant staff good food and good value .I have recommended the Riverside to friends and family . I came through from Glasgow for Lunch .Will be back soon
Lovely place, but a bit crowded and the service was slow.
Tasty fish & chips tonight!
Fantastic meal and great service from Jo and the team, really enjoyable evening once again!
An excellent place to visit. Food is delicious and you always get a very high level of service. All this and then topped off with a great atmosphere too.
Fantastic Sunday lunch for my birthday - been a few years since i have made the trip here and so glad we came back - absolutely perfect
Great service from moment we walked in the door to the moment we left.
Dog friendly with up to six dogs in the restaurant at one point.
The roast beef was amazing, especially the cauliflower cheese! Unfortunately the sauvingon blanc was extortionate at 10.95 for a 250ml glass, this spoilt the whole experience
Really nice meal,good value for money.
Prompt friendly service.
Great food and service. Nice meal in front of fire
Very attentive service. Food could have been warmer but that apart we could not fault the place. Everyone had a great night
Very enjoyable lunch from the Xmas menu. Staff were superb.
The staff were absolutely fantastic and I really enjoyed my night at the a riverside. It was really great!
service poor - difficult to order 2nd round of drinks -had to go to bar
difficult to pay -long queue for no obvious reason -when turn came initial refusal then explained we had our bill-system and staff poor
all very frustrating
Jo and the staff were great despite being down a few members due to illness. All of our requirements were met with no bother! Thanks
Great choice of food with special vegetarian menu in addition to Christmas and normal menus.
Always excellent and some new items on the Xmas menu
Avery lovely experience. Delightful decor, friendly staff and and incredible menu superbly executed. Lots of choices for Gluten free and vegetarian options. 10/10 WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND.
As usual the staff were very polite and helpful and the food was delicious .
Nice cosy pub with cheerful helpful staff. Fish and chips are excellent. Service excellent. Clean toilets. Good hot coffee.
Lovely relaxed place with good food. Nice fire on a cold day!
This was our first visit to The Riverside and we where not disappointed, the welcome was very friendly. The service and quality of the food was excellent. We will definitely be back.
Absolutely 5 star service. We haven’t been able to get to Dunblane for the past 2 years and were delighted that the Riverside is just as good as we remember it. Fantastic food and lovely staff
Last minute booking for Sunday (late) lunch, lovely warm welcome and excellent service throughout. The food was mostly really good, my husbands main meal arrived cold however, it was dealt with efficiently and a drink on the house for the inconvenience.
Would definitely recommend The Riverside.
Excellent customer service provided by management following mix up serving meals by trainee waiting staff. Sorted without any detriment to our enjoyment of the occasion.
