We took our friends for dinner and would like to say we all had an excellent meal. Great service and really nice surroundings. We had come from stonehaven and was well worth the trip. Would recommend booking as was really busy on a Thursday

We had an excellent late lunch on a Monday and received lovely service from Roderick. The Inn is beautifully decorated with great character and the food was faultless. We enjoyed cod and a great dish of lambs liver and bacon with the tastiest gravy ever!...More

Have visited this establishment on several occasions. Staff are friendly and food is good, especially steak night. Also dog friendly so dogs allowed in the bar obviously not in the restaurant

My wife and I had a mouthwatering dinner at The Drovers. We were celebrating our 5th anniversary and so had high expectations for a really special meal. We weren’t disappointed! Great food, great value, lovely service.
