“Great carvery”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 August 2014

Had a fabulous carvery today. We opted for the small at £5-50. This was an ample meal.The sweet menu is extensive and the portions are large!!
Recently refurbished and re-opened, the pub offers a friendly welcome, with a choice of ales, which for us is a bonus.
Will definitely return another day as the carvery is every day, not just on a Sunday.

“Superb Carvery and addition to a village.....”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 August 2014

Following a recent unplanned visit to this newly refurbished venue, it is easy to feel the warmth and effort made by the new licensee and his team. Not only was the atmosphere refreshingly upbeat and happy by many locals who are keen to socialise with new faces, the standard of service is exceptional and and quality of the premises decor quite lovely. There was a delightful event set out, a party provided by the host for a locals personal birthday celebration, a brilliant band to entertain all thus embracing the local community into a personal event. No smarter way to ensure the locals felt included positively in the changes. I returned today to enjoy a fine Sunday roast escorted by my family who share my passion in eating out. I am delighted to say that the tastes of everyone are so well catered for, nothing too much trouble by this host and his family like team. Such a rare treat to enjoy personalised hospitality. We were remembered and welcomed and then shown appreciation for our patronage. Well done to a great change in a pub I last visited many years ago. Spit and sawdust has gone, the new world of stylish comfort and quality catering has arrived at Dobwalls for this lovely community to enjoy. I will return as it makes a lovely trip out. In fact I can't wait for the next event which is planned and the locals are indeed buzzing about it. So if you want to relax and enjoy goodness, it's right there in the cute and homely pub. Looking forward to seeing all the continued improvement this host has in mind. Hurrah for the progress and determination of an insightful and upbeat team of proffesionals who have taken on this challenge!
