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 food in a very pleasant environment. Suited the whole family.
So good we booked the next day. 2 day break and went both times for lunch. Really nice staff and lovely time had both days.
Lovely meal with 2 friends yesterday. Food was excellent, no problem to swap out chicken for fish in the (delicious!) Keto Bowl. Very accommodating when I phoned to request and later arrival, excellent service, and no desire to rush us from our table. Great afternoon, thanks.
Really poor service with meals coming out 5 minutes apart. Fly in the vinegar which we noticed once we had all used it. Gave it to the lady who was running things and no apology, nothing.
Food was average and expensive. Will not return
Jo and staff were excellent at looking after us.
Everything we had to eat was very tasty.
All in all we really enjoyed our evening.
Lovely service, great ambience and food and cocktails fab.
Excellent food and service, well recommended.
Lovely food. Good service. Clean and tidy no complaints
We had lovely family lunch. The place was really busy and the staff coped so well.
My first visit to the Riverside and I was slightly underwhelmed, it wasn't bad it was just ok. The food was ok, the service was ok, I felt it was value for money and after a small complaint, the waitress was very professional and handled it very well offering a replacement and refund. to our satisfaction. I will go back if I am in the area.
Lovely restaurant next to the river, there is outside seating if you prefer but we sat inside where the tables were spaced out following COVID rules. The staff were all friendly and professional but the best part is the food, lovely varied menu and the food was delicious. I would definitely recommend this place and we’ll definitely be back
Sat outside on a corner table overlooking the river. Served by a lovely friendly lady called Hannah. Lovely scallops and really well cooked steak.
Thanks guys, really lovely evening.
Excellent dog friendly venue. Helpful staff, including cooking 2 chicken breasts for the dogs. Great service and food was excellent.

Great service, friendly staff, restaurant & toilets are spotless, food is amazing! Travel from Glasgow every few weeks for Sunday dinner
Lovely table overlooking the river a a great range of plant based food. Service was very friendly and accommodating.
Attentive staff, value for money food.
Good choice vegan wine.
The food was delicious, there were regular, vegan and gluten free options. I was very impressed by the standard of food, so much so that we went back for breakfast the next morning! Atmosphere was perfect and staff friendly and helpful. Can't recommend enough.
A very modern establishment, clean and a terrific ambiance. The staff were attentive without over stepping and the food was excellent.
A wonderful and relaxing evening meal. A repeat visit and as good as on previous occasions.
You should have no qualms about eating at the Riverside Inn Dunblane. The food was excellent as was the ambiance. A nice touch was the host speaking with each customer at some point during the evening.
Service was a bit uncoordinated; we kept having different members of staff asking for our orders. Food and drink were all excellent, though and we were allowed to stay beyond our allotted time. Catching up with old friends and musical collaborators, we forgot the time!
Excellent food and staff. Great atmosphere. Steak cooked to perfection med to well.
Absolutely excellent lunch. This is a delightful restaurant with all the attributes of a country pub, but conveniently located in the middle of the town. Service was amazing! Food was amazing! Very laid back atmosphere allowing us to fully enjoy the experience. We will be back. Thank you to all the staff. Very pleased to hear you are dog friendly. Next time we’ll bring the puppy!
Gorgeous place in Dunblane. Charming location. We got an amazing table with a river view. Made our birthday celebration that more special.
The food is good quality and the service is outstanding and friendly.
We arrived early but the staff accommodated us with no issues. The food was delicious and all four of us thoroughly enjoyed it. The surroundings were very pleasant and everything was very clean. The service was very good, staff were helpful and in good humour. Overall a very enjoyable experience that we’ll be repeating. My advice would be to try it out for yourself, I think you’ll enjoy 😊
Lovely terrace to eat on shaded by sun . Food lovely . Good service . Lovely place to meet friends
Great food and service
Outstanding as always - our friends from Edinburgh were very impressed.
Great food and service looking forward to my next visit!
Great service, lovely location and great choice of food including gluten free and vegan choices.
Good food with relaxed atmosphere. Pretty good for GF options.
Service was poor. Some drinks ordered never arrived. Waiter smashed a bottle at the table next to us and there were some shards of glass left scattered. Italian meats pizza had far too much cheese on it and hardly any Italian meats. There was more than enough cheese to do 4 pizzas, it was the same on two of these pizzas. We both left more than half of the pizza and were left feeling dried out and sick.
Outstanding as usual. Great food and brilliant service.
Good food, well cooked and beautifully presented. Attentive staff. Thank you, we had a very enjoyable evening at the Riverside.
Pleasant place to eat. Group was two adults and a seven year old child.
The adult meals were delicious but while the starters were excellent value, the mains were less so. The children's sausage meal was too peppery for our taste; perhaps plain sausages would be better. Full credit to the Riverside though for not charging us for this. Also no flake on the child's ice cream dessert; this wasn't necessary a problem as restaurants can run out but it would have been nice if this had been recognised before we asked for the missing flake.
Warm welcome & given a choice of tables.
The food was well served & delicious. Service was very good.
Great food great prices and dog friendly five star
