“Try the haggis stuffed mushrooms! ”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 June 2014 via mobile

Went based on a trip advisors review and wasn't disappointed! The haggis stuffed mushrooms were stunning, so was the fish & chips!

“Great food and drink”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 June 2014

This is a real ale pub that does many beers and great food. We had a table of 11 people and everyone thought the food was excellent, from the chicken to the salmon dish. The clear favourite was the fish and chips and they were very tasty indeed. Definitely worth a visit.

“Been Twice this month”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 June 2014 via mobile

I can report that Cavens Arms has been produce lovely meals, and service to a high standard I have come to expect from this establishment. Noticed a handful of new staff, as well as some usual ones. No variation between them. Glad Cavens Arms aren't resting on any laurels!

“Best Pub in Town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 June 2014

Extensive range of real ales on tap, the best pub grub (especially the fish and chips - the latter being home made and delicious) and plenty of it.

Good busy and bustling atmosphere, and friendly and efficient staff.

Only downside: it's very busy at times.... because it is SO good!!!!
