We went here for a lovely weekend lunch and have to say everything about it was perfect, from the warm welcome we received then the superb food finished off with... read more a pleasant drink in the beer garden. I had soup to start followed by a very tasty burger and chips. My wife had the chicken liver paté which she said was the best she had ever tasted.

Everything about the Ardler Tavern made for a really enjoyable experience. The Inn itself is authentically quaint with a log fire and Olde Worlde atmosphere, and I was able to... read more park on the street outside the entrance.
The menu was varied with a nice mixture of traditional dishes like fish and chips or steak pie, but also some exotic alternatives like nachos or curry. Indeed, the specials board was almost as long as the menu and I would have to visit a number of times to try everything I fancied for each of the 3 courses. Also, a number of main courses come in big and small portions.
The food was really delicious with huge helpings. In fact, after eating what amounted to 2 main courses, I had to forego the dessert I fancied. Next time ....
The prices were a little above those for pub grub, but the food reflects that, the tastiest I've had in a long time. The service was superb too, informal, but efficient, and we will definitely return to this wee gem of a country pub.
