    Service was wonderful. My cod dish felt like it had been sitting awhile on the pass, a bit overdone and smaller than I thought it would be. The blue cheese sauce for the rib eye was not good. At £3.50 the sauce was a disappointment. Our scallops starter and desserts were absolutely fantastic. It is a very nice restaurant and again, the service was excellent. We will be back, but most likely for a pub lunch.

    Good service and a very pleasant place to have a meal and a drink. In a party of 3 every one enjoyed starters and two of us really enjoyed main course, but i noticed my wife had left almost all her thick sauce on lamb dish. The meat and veg was perfectly cooked. She said the sauce was extremely salty and inedible. I tried a bit and it certainly was extremely salty. In hindsight we should have mentioned it but didn’t as we as ll enjoyed the overall experience. We will definitely be back and given the quality of the food can only think this was a one off genuine mistake. Would have rated much higher otherwise.

    They had weekends specials, but when ordering they only had left the Sunday roast. For starter we picked the warm ciabatta, which was as not too crunchy. The menu has a few vegetarian and vegan options, but not many... I had a margarita pizza which was huge and couldn't finish more than half. It was really nice, the dough was thin, the kind that you have to fold to eat it. My husband got the macaroni cheese, which were just so moreish, creamy and with a browned cheese top, delicious... Shame about the chips, which were the frozen ones. For dessert we shared a beautiful crème brûlée, it was the best bit with the caramelised sugar covering it. It was also served at the right temperature. The lady serving us was very nice attentive and friendly, but I felt she kind of hurried us up when ordering, when the restaurant wasn't really too busy on a Sunday evening.

    We have eaten there several times before but we found the food variable. The prawn salad was excellent and the pasta was ok but the Sunday roast was disappointing. The beef was overdone to the point of being chewey and the veg eg green beans were cooked to an inch of their lives. The carrots were carrots and the Yorkshire pudding was fine The service was slow-ish although pleasant and the prices about normal for today. We will certainly hesitate about returning.

    This is the sixth time we’ve eaten at this restaurant, but on 50% of these occasions food has had to be sent back to the kitchen. Unfortunately yesterday was no different, as two of the four meals were cold!! Sadly, the replacements offered were not much better. Having never had these problems in the Riverside in Dunblane and the Allan Park in Stirling, other properties in this group, it is particularly disappointing that the Woodside can’t sort itself out. We had hoped the Woodside would become our ‘local’, but with a success rate at 50%, we will not be visiting again.

    We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Woodside Doune. The food was of a high standard, and the staff were friendly and helpful. My only criticism would be that the emphasis was on the cooked breakfast, whereas in other hotels where we have stayed, there is generally yogurt and fruit available, especially for those who are vegan or gluten free or who like myself, prefer a lighter breakfast. Apart from this, I am full of praise for a hotel with a very good ambiance.
