Decent food at a decent price.
This is the third time I have stayed at Dunblane, and used the Kailyard Restaurant. I have enjoyed my meal on each occasion. I would not hesitate to use the restaurant again.
Classy restaurant in a lovely hotel setting.
Food was excellent, steak was cooked to perfection. Staff were very friendly and courteous.
I thought the dinner was very nice, good points were the friendly staff and the food was quite quickly served also. However, we were served soup but given no spoons and also I felt the serving of steak with chips was quite small. Plus point was that our little one ate for free which was really good.
Very enjoyable experience
All food and drinks very good. Would return soon
Very good meal, plenty of choice are very efficient service would return again.
We had three excellent dinners at the Kailyard. I would definitely recommend The Kaliyard to anyone visiting this part of Scotland.
Excellent dining experience.
Myself and partner both had steaks and the sauce was really watery, it ruined the dish for us. We were both quite disappointed.
Generally good. We were left standing for quite a while whilst the maitre d’ was away attending to other diners on our arrival, leaving us feeling a bit awkward. Just thought that we could have at least been acknowledged but everyone seemed too busy and preoccupied. I guess we caught it at busy time but too busy to smile?. On saying that once we sat down the service was faultless. Loved the mushroom soup especially! Wish you could do deliveries!
I arrived at 19:15 for my 19:30 reservation. My table was available but was asked to come back in 15 mins as many of the guests who had booked for 19:15 had still to arrive !! Really !! I’d rather have taken my seat and enjoyed my aperitif in comfort at my table than have to go and twiddle my fingers to accommodate your late diners. Your “nibbles” and starters were excellent and my steak very enjoyable. The vegetarian curry on the other hand was really cauliflower curry with little or no other veg to be seen. Fairly mixed overall but I would return and give it another chance. Hopefully i’ll Get in this time without having to go stand in the dunces corner
Food and staff excellent
We thoroughly enjoyed our meals but were extremely disappointed to see the cheeseboard described as British, and wondered why Scottish cheeses were not on the menu? When we enquired as to what was on it, the waitress had to go and ask. The two hard cheeses were not that tasty and it’s such a shame to not have Scottish cheeses - especially given the pride in putting provenance of other ingredients on the menu. I am sure Nick Nairn could find some excellent Scottish dairies!
The mashed potato had a film on the top as though it wasn't freshly put out. Two of us asked for extra brie with the cheese & oatcakes as we don't like blue cheese. Came with extra cheddar. Waiter said he put through what we asked for. He then had to get us extra brie. A little disappointed to be honest.
Best dining I’ve had for a long time, coming from London!
Excellent service and food, would definitely return.
The furniture in the dining room is starting to look a bit faded. The food was excellent, but the halibut could have done with a bit more sauce. Staff were attentive.
Dinner was excellent on both nights and staff could not have been more helpful. Great way to celebrate our Pearl Anniversart
We had a relaxing and quality time.
Four out of our group of 5 were very disapoi nted with rib eye steak. Not cooked to our request. Chips were overcooked too. Coffee was mixed up and the one decaf order couldn't be identified by person serving. We expected .much better than this. Starter and sweets were good. Only the main course disappointed.
My husband and I both had the Nick Nairn burger and the Only one thing I would suggest is I would have liked it to have a side salad with a dressing as we both found it a bit dry.
Food was very good as normal and all the staff in the restaurant were very nice.
