great food, menu changes regularly, good 'local' atmosphere, everyone very friendly and helpful. Service good as well. On main road as you go through the village so easy to find and get to. Parking at side of pub.

We found this pub on a Dog Friendly pub guide and we were not disappointed. It is located close to a scenic walk that is not for the faint hearted. The friendly staff served us a lovely pub lunch although we arrived back after the last order time of 2.30pm We had a delightful halloumi & roasted pepper sandwich and... More

My wife and I stopped in for lunch and were very happy with the welcome and the quality of the food available in the public bar. We will definitely stop in again when and if the occasion arises. We did not stay at the hotel so cannot comment on the rooms etc.

The female staff member behind the bar did not offer any help with my two bags and suitcase and there was no chat, guidance to the facilities/services and she merely led the way... More

After a resurgence early in the year it's back to same old if poorer. Regulars consistently expressing private views about the quality of the offer are resorting to bottled beer. The selection of cask ale whilst from a local micro brewer is turning people off.

Came here for tea as we are staying at a self catering cottage down the road. The staff are very welcoming and the food was excellent, wholesome hearty pub food, definitely recommend this hotel. Haven't stayed in the rooms so cannot comment but the hotel is full so I'm guessing they must be doing something right

I have passed through West Linton many times and the Gordon Arms is best place to stop and relax. The bar is cosy and friendly, and they serve up top notch bar food, good range of beers and also excellent coffee. Hope to stay in a room next time!!

The Gordon Arms is under new management. Yipeeeeee! It is amazing. The atmosphere is great. Free bar snacks. I've eaten here 3 times since the change and each meal has been outstanding. Service fantastic. Cannot fault it. We are v lucky to have such an amazing pub/restaurant in the village. Highly recommend.
