The Tappit Hen, Dunblane

This is the jewel in Dunblane and leaves the other pubs in its wake. Unlike the Dunblane Hotel it is open all day and has 5 real ales available for customers at any one time. Has a blackboard giving details of what is being poured and what is due to be served next.

Only serves toasties so if you are looking for anything more substantial you are going to be out of luck.

Refurbished a couple of years or so ago, this is a clean, welcoming and well-run establishment serving some good ales.

Dunblane Hotel, Dunblane

In 2009 I raved about this pub, but not now. The 2009 landlord retired and the licence was taken over by a couple who tried their best which unfortunately was not good enough. It has been without a licensee for at least two years and is run by a manager put in by the owners Punch Taverns who promised some time ago to refurbish it. And how it needs refurbishment!

It can easily claim to be the worst pub in Dunblane and is best avoided. Now opens at 4.00pm on Mondays to Fridays. Food is no longer served at any time.

Punch Taverns really do need to pull their finger and invest some much needed money into this place NOW!

I'll give it a "1" for its couple of real ales.

The Red Lion Inn, Doune

Small pub without frills but very comfortable. Has one hand pump on which sees a variety of ales especially those coming from Orkney.

Has a separate dining room which is open for lunch in the summer months (but not lunch in winter). Good menu with reasonably priced fare.
