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.

Food was excellent and the staff were very friendly and helpful.
Only criticism is that for our entire time enjoying the sun and food there was one loud and pretty foul mouthed man. It would have been nice if he had been asked to tone it down a bit, especially when children were around.
Lovely views and atmosphere. Food was great as usual - as was the friendly and attentive service.
Food and service both excellent. Will definitely recommend.
Staff food and service were all excellent. Very friendly with car parking near bu
Lovely sitting outside in the sun watching the river moving past. Service was excellent. Couldn’t have been more helpful or friendly. Food was delicious!
We had a lovely full Scottish breakfast that was of excellent quality, good value for money with great service from very friendly staff.
Warm welcome on arrival and seated quickly and friendly. Food was amazing and staff were all friendly and chatty.
Staff are fantastic. They couldn't have been more helpful with finding out what I could have as I have food allergies.
Best fish and chips ever it was beautiful.
First visit here with our pup. Food was great, staff and service first class and location perfect in a very sunny afternoon.
Definitely be returning here soon. Just a lovely time with old friends, great food and a bottle of red! Finding dog friendly restaurants us now a thing since we got our pup in November and this wad a great choice. Water bowl for the dog and treats offered too - made for a very relaxing time.
Seafood risotto and pizza had huge prawns and was delicious and the Mac and cheese was fab. Had to have dessert and the biscoff cake was yummy.
Thanks to all the staff.
Lovely work lunch on the shaded deck and were allowed our office dog along. Great food and service.
Sad to say our experience last evening was not up to the standard we expected having read rave reviews. The food was good but the service very poor. Having arrived promptly at our given time, received the menu, ordered our drinks which arrived 15 minutes later, put our order in - 1 starter and 4 mains. The starter came and then - we waited! and waited! Just before an hour was up I managed to get the attention of a waiter who said it would be ready shortly, in actual fact it was 1 hour 15 minutes from ordering to delivery. This is not good enough.
A local resident who eats regularly here was appalled at the way we were treated.
Needless to say this is not good enough.
Everything was Fantastic, food, drinks & service was excellent 5*
We Decided to book The Riverside after enjoying dinner in The Allan Park Hotel in Stirling and finding that there was a sister restaurant in Dunblane. We certainly weren't disappointed, food,service and atmosphere was fantastic, especially as the weather was beautiful and we booked an outdoor table. Hannah was very attentive and friendly.
Very popular (especially the outdoor seating) and busy though we went early evening . Very good service despite how busy - food was very good, and decent portions. Best macaroni cheese I’ve had!
Excellent restaurant with lovely staff and very good service. If in Dunblane, definitely worth visiting.
Lovely food and great location. Service was quite slow and food took a bit of time, but gentleman mentioned that they were a staff member down on a sunny bank holiday. Couple of crying babies added to the noise level, but we will revisit on a less hectic occasion - food makes it worthwhile. Lemon tart was delicious!
Excellent location, perfect view out over the river from the terrace. Food was excellent and the beer was quite nice as well. Very accommodating, nothing seemed like a problem. Asked if we would like to move tables when one in the shade became available which was nice.
Lovely meal. Pleasant and efficient staff.
Had such a brilliant experience last night. The food was incredible and it was great value for money. Would definitely recommend. 5 out of 5!
Lovely time sitting outside in the sun, looked after by staff so well. I had a steak burger with blue cheese it was absolutely amazing.
Didn’t have dessert because only 4 to choose from and didn’t fancy any on offer but choice was ok.
Was a fantastic experience, great servicea amazing food, we were well looked after.
Absolutely amazing! Can’t wait to go back. Food, staff, ambience all wonderful.
Lovely staff and yummy food. Maybe a wee bit pricey. Lovely cocktails.
Friendly staff and good food. Quiet pretty location next to the river
The downstairs outdoor terrace provided a perfectly sheltered covid-safe setting. The food was fresh and delicious and as good as we've had anywhere.
Good quality produce cooked well.
Food nicely presented, tasty and so enjoyable. Good, varied and interesting menu, reasonably priced. Friendly, welcoming staff. We've eaten here many times and never been disappointed.
If you want good food and relaxing atmosphere with kind and attentive service, this is your place. The staff are absolutely outstanding. Always enjoy my meals here. Thank you!
Great venue, good choice of food for all and really well priced.
First time visiting this restaurant. Would thoroughly recommend it. Staff very welcoming, courteous and attentive. Food good value
No complaints at all.
While it was a lovely place to eat I was a bit disappointed in my dish. We waited a while for our meals to come and when they did mine was cold. Tasted fine but cold.
Third visit and as before the service, food and setting fantastic. Would highly recommend the Riverside for casual dining or a special occasion. The staff are very friendly and efficient, nothing is too much bother for them. Will definitely book again if in the area.
The lamb was good but the burger was very disappointing
Wonderful restaurant. Lovely food well prepared and delivered to the table in a good time. Lovely view. Staff so friendly and welcoming. Nothing is too much trouble.
We love this place and took our grandchildren for dinner there as an end of holiday treat.
The service was much slower than usual and the wine I had ordered when the rest of the party were having dessert never arrived.
Apart from that everything fine
Will definitely be back
lovely meal, relaxed setting & attentive staff. Would recommend
Lovely setting with excellent food and variety. Good evening.
Wonderful ambience , staff very efficient and friendly . Food was delicious and beautifully presented . Staff were very accommodating great service
Lovely food and service. We sat downstairs and outside so service was a little slow. Great value for money 100% recommend
Great location by Riverside easy to find and plenty of menu
The staff were friendly and polite so feel slightly guilty leaving a critical review but I was really disappointed with the food. The kids meals were nice, but it was Mac and cheese, chicken goujons and fish and chips so hard to go wrong. My dish was lamb rump and new potatoes. The potatoes didn’t seem cooked right through, and the lamb was bloody in places but also chewy and very bland. My wife’s seafood risotto tasted fairly bland too. Really disappointing after quite a long wait.
