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.

Lovely venue, friendly staff, amazing main course (lamb). Only reason for not achieving maximum score, plant based choc brownie was overcooked.
Was welcomed and given food menu but we just booked a table for drinks, was told don’t normally give tables for drinks on Saturday afternoon, anyway we felt obligated to order something. Food was good and drinks were ok.
Lovely food snd great setting however the service was a bit slow.
Beautiful sunny lunch on the Riverside!!
Fantastic food / great service from everyone and well worth the trip!
Definitely highly recommend we will be back again
Lovely food in a lovely place. Great service and I had a fantastic evening catching up with friends.
Beautiful meal, really enjoyed the experience for my partners big Birthday.
We had a lovely evening catching up with my aunt. It was the ideal place as there were 2 kids in our party. The food was tasty and would definitely come back, which I am very soon.
The best Vegan dessert we have ever enjoyed whilst out dining thank you for putting on a vegan menu and for it being so good ... compliments to the chef !
The hamburger was excellent and we preferred the chips not being too chunky. The meal was freshly cooked and served hot which is always a bonus. I appreciated the burger/meat had been rested, lots of restaurants don't rest the meat after cooking. Risotto was tasty. Creme broule and homemade shortbread delicious.
Excellent food and atmosphere and service. Great to be out!
The choice and food was excellent. So good we are going back again tonight.
Lovely setting for outside dining beside the river. Excellent food.
Fabulous staff and management look after you extremely well. Excellent food and a wine list long enough to keep you busy. They also offer an entire gluten free menu, which is a real boon…
The team made us feel so welcome for the week we were in Dunblane we’re feeling bereft back home in Southern England 😢
Easily remedied — we’ll be back just as soon as possible 🥳
Welcoming staff and atmosphere. Lovely food and varied menu. Will be sure to visit again and tell others.
Super staff very friendly and the food was superb, pizzas freshly made the size of a bin lid.
A lunch menu with plenty of choice, providing very good food in beautiful surroundings. Attentive staff without being overbearing.
Our second time here and it did not disappoint. Food was sensational and the staff were lovely and attentive throughout too, which makes a huge difference. Will definitely be back soon.
A delicious lunch. We each had something different and everybody enjoyed their meal. Service was very good and everywhere was clean and safe
enjoyed a couple of drinks here waitress was lovely and atmosphere good
Staff excellent, service a bit slow. Burgers excellent but plate looked a bit bare. Very few chips no side salad. My chicken dish was lovely but again portions were poor and not worth £15.95. I was still hungry. There was no tart tartan on the sweet menu and we substituted it with apple pie and ice cream. Two shop bought apple pies and a few bits of fruit and ice cream did not merit a charge of £7.50.
A lovely setting on the river. The food was well cooked and presented. The staff were friendly and attentive.
First visit but certainly wont be the last! Perfect setting on terrace overlooking the river, we were lucky with sunny weather. The staff were exceptional, couldn't do enough for us and very polite, friendly, hygiene conscious. Service was quick and food amazing, main courses and desserts. Would highly recommend this restuarant.
Out for a family birthday and it was lovely food was great and service was really good very attentive.
Food and service excellent if a little pricey . lovely setting
the outdoor patio is gorgeous, and we were lucky enough to have a beautiful day to sit out there.
Great experience at the Riverside. Great food, cheery service and was fab sitting outdoors beside the river.
Fantastic food and lovely surroundings. Service was excellent
Excellent service and food delicious. Table outside ideal on a sunny day.
Great food with plenty choice for vegan, vegetarian and gluten free diners. Staff were lovely and the restaurant had a good atmosphere.
delicious scallops and chicken!!
definitely going back for the fish and chips!
and definitely going back again for one of their burgers!
Lovely spot to meet friends ...just one tiny thing....scones hard and I could actually count the number of raisins in mine on one hand but other than that ...really enjoyable
Great food and service.
Prebooked for outside (downstairs). Unfortunately as it was such a nice day and a Bank Holiday, we couldn't get moved to the upper deck in the sun. Great service from arrival to departure. Ordered a couple of (fish finger) sandwiches which including salad and fires were excellent. Thoroughly recommended.
Our first visit to the riverside and we will most definitely be back. Service was impeccable. Staff were all masked up, conscious of cleanliness and safety and very polite and friendly. Food was great and the outside deck was lovely. All round great experience. Thank you
Had a lovely evening service was really good and the food delicious. Definitely be back
We were seated in the lower outside area which wasn’t ideal. On the way downstairs we all nearly slipped on the wet floor which was still wet when we left. We waited ages for service, our food was below average, the paella being the worst. We were looking forward to getting out again but don’t think we will return here.
Lovely food and atmosphere. Very pleasant staff but think the kitchen must be under a lot of pressure as we had a very long wait for our main course. It would not put us off from a return visit though.
Sunday lunch with my wife. Very good vegan options; I particularly enjoyed the sweet potato tart. Warm afternoon so lovely to sit above the river. Service very efficient.
Excellent lunch food staff and service first class and beautiful location will definitely return
Very pleasant lunch at the Riverside. We had booked for inside but the terraces by the river were also both open for business. I had soup and a fish finger sandwich and my guest had a steak sandwich. The steak was a wee bit tough but, overall, the food was pretty good. Excellent, attentive service. Prices were fine. Sensible COVID precautions in the restaurant (one way system, hand sanitizer, wait to be seated etc).
