The Ardler Tavern, Blairgowrie - a nice place to be

Set on the border of Angus and Perthshire just off the A94 between Coupar Angus and Meigle.

The Tavern in the village of Ardler, nestled between the Grampian mountains and the Sidlaw hills has been trading for over 100 years, catering to the needs of locals and travellers alike.

A popular area for walkers, cyclists, field sports and fishing enthusiasts, whether you're coming to dine or just popping in for a refreshment we are here to welcome you after your day's activities whatever your preferred pursuit.

We have two letting rooms available, be it our cabin in the garden or the self-contained unit in the main building, you are guaranteed a restful stay.

When the sun shines relax in our beer garden and if it should be hiding enjoy a tipple in front of our wood burning stove.

There are no strangers at the Tavern , just friends we have not met yet !
