Although within a few minutes drive, the last time I was in the Ardler Tavern was probably over 30 years ago. My loss.
The friendly young waiter / barman obviously knew his job well, taking our drinks and food order promptly and efficiently. Although we did not have starters, our main courses arrived promptly. My steak pie was excellent, a generous portion, tender beef, rich tasty gravy and that full of flavour layer of soggy pastry between the filling and the crust that proves they were baked together. The chips were near perfect.
The only reason I have not given full marks is because the pie and my clootie dumpling (google it!) were not nearly hot enough.
We will be back and expect to be able to give 5 stars this time.
