Stopped here for a few pints and bite to eat on two separate occasions on our visit to dunblane. Great service, friendly staff and good food and drink. Only had a toastie and bowl of chips but was a good eat and an excellent pint.

Popped in here to watch one of the recent Autumn International rugby matches (Scotland obviously), great atmosphere in the bar, plenty screens to look at. Good choice of beers. Had a snack while there, some had toasties, some panini I had a chicken curry, all pipping hot and very good.
