a bit behind the times decor wise and you can often arrive to a member of staff ironing in the restaurant, but the food is usually of a great quality and wine is nit expensive. It would be nice to see it brought up to the same standard of its sister inn The Anglers.

We went for a drink.The bar area is very small. Restaurant area is very spacious but we have not eaten so I can not make a comment for that.Prices for drinks are more expensive for the area.

This is an old pub' which has been refurbished to a very high standard yet retains an old fashioned atmosphere. The food on offer is excellent and affordably priced. The staff are helpful and friendly. It is in the old part of Rattray with the Parish Church close by.

Excellent service from the friendly staff on hand. Large portions of good food. I had chicken Caledonia and my girlfriend had lasagne. Then Bailey's cheesecake for pudding.

Several of us had an evening meal and drinks and the owner was extremely rude, the drinks were warm and flat and the food was terrible. Will definitely not be back and would never recommend this place. The only thing that was good about it was the decor, nice garden area out the back and the nice girl that served... More
