My son and I visited on spec and it was an all round winner. Lovely attentive staff, and a wide ranging, modestly priced menu in a near classic country pub.... read more We agonised over our choice of main course and settled on lamb shank. It was to die for! I'm sure the many other offerings were of equal quality as care had obviously been taken with our meal. How is this wonderful place so little known? Please keep up the excellent work.

Went for lunch with another couple. I had the Arbroath smokey starter and my friend had scallops which we both enjoyed. For main I had the chicken with skirlie whilst... read more the others had lasagne, scampi and steak pie. The steak pie looked and tasted wonderful and we all enjoyed our meals. If I have a small criticism and it is small, the chicken was a tad dry and could have done with more gravy which I am sure the proprietor would have provided had I asked. The menu is quite varied.
All in all we had a very nice lunch and the place was busy. The proprietor was very welcoming and chatty. Ardler not too close to us otherwise would return soon. Would recommend.
