After reading great reviews about the Ardler Tavern we decided to give it a try. We chose the steak pie, as recommended on tripadvisor, the steak pie was amazing and... read more delicious and I would heartily recommend this Tavern.
Just out of lockdown and in the company of a party of some my wife's Yorkshire relations, we were nine in total and felt that the Tavern in the lovely... read more village of Ardler would suit everyone's taste in country fare and hospitality ... and our plans bore fruit. On arrival we were warmly welcomed by the hosts and their staff who bent over backwards to satisfy the nine different combinations our palates required. There is an extensive menu and, clearly, both cheffing and service staff there with full capability for handling this and the other diners they had attracted to their enterprise. Everybody's a winner in such splendid company ... and thanks were due to the silly incumbent Chancellor, who, once more, footed half the bill ... we toasted him anyway.
