  •   Good food well presented, cooked to order with all the trimmings. Very pleasant country pub with a genuine welcome from the staff. Felt very much like a local should. Busy place, people coming and going all the time, would advise you book first. Tuesday was steak night, Friday is fish night, all freshly cooked.

  •   We had not been in Ardler for years.
    After hearing good things about the food we thought we would try it for ourselves .
    We booked ahead ( my Mum had been recently for lunch ) as she thought it was a bit small.

    We were given a friendly welcome and nothing was too much trouble .
    The food arrived after an acceptable amount of time and was very tasty.

    There was a vast and varied selection of cakes accompanied by scones.

    The only down side would be the aesthetics of the carpet ( old, stained and dirty) and the toilets need revamped. That being said it didn’t put us off.

    We will return.

  •   So good to visit an establishment where the welcome is genuine, but absolutely not obsequious, where the service is terrific, where the food is good , the menu broad, the cost , including for drinks, is very reasonable. An old tavern that maintains much of the atmosphere of bygone years .Well worth arepeat visit, or more!.
