    Gorgeous family run hotel. We were staying over and had dinner in the restaurant. Could not fault anything, bar area and restaurant had a great atmosphere. Service was excellent, it was really busy but this did not impact on the service. The food was outstanding. So good to see this place so busy. We had breakfast the following morning and again could not fault it. This place deserves more than 3 stars. Absolutely loved it and will be back.

    I like the Woodside. Nice venue overall and friendly staff. As a local I do think it would be lovely if there was a more local feel, i.e reference to Doune history, local photos, castle, Main Street, the ponds, etc. The food was overall tasty but there were some small issues which would be easy to address. The restaurant was pretty quiet. We requested bread and olives at the start, which took a long time to arrive and only after we asked for it a second time. The ciabatta had been microwaved. Olives were tasty. Main courses were tasty but portions for two of the party were very small - lamb. I had steak which was very good. Two members of the party had ice cream for pudding - I didn’t check the make but it was very plain and sadly quite tasteless. Chocolate sauce was hardly noticeable either. We moved to the area with the stove and asked if it could be lit - we were told no. I do appreciate that there were not many people there but I was disappointed by this as it’s not a big ask, and it was a cool evening. However, it was more to do with the ambience, rather than for any practical purpose. For context, we sat there for a good couple of hours with drinks, and spent a decent amount of money. On the plus side, the staff were friendly and helpful. Also, I really appreciated that it was quiet as I’m dependant on hearing aids, and many restaurants can very difficult. Overall, these small issues aside, we had a lovely evening with good friends. As locals, we will be returning as it is a lovely place and we’re lucky to have it.

    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.

    Great service. Really appreciated the slightly quieter table and flexibility when one guest had to cancel the evening before. People had travelled quite a long distance to meet here so it was super to have such a warm welcome. The dining room was looking fab and the place was cozy.
