We dropped in a few days back for some food and a few drinks. The food was great as were the drink options and generally is a nice relaxed atmosphere. Would definitely go back if in the area again.

We called in here for lunch in between walks. Very friendly service and excellent food (a nice risotto and a beautiful piece of gammon). The evening menu also looked very good. It's in a beautiful location in Arkengarthdale.

We had a weekend break at the Punch Bowl last weekend. Very quiet location, really friendly staff, quite modern/refurbished pub but still lots of character. Our room was very spacious with a decent en-suite. The food was good quality, if a bit over priced for...More
