We went to the Balrothery Inn one Sunday afternoon. The place was busy but the food service was prompt, and the food hearthy, We went for the beef dinner and chicken dinners,both were hearty meals and came with plenty of vegetables.

On a negative side have been to the bar before for drinks, and have been left waiting. Twice I walked out of the place the bar service was so slow. People behind the bar tend to hide around the corner and decide to when it suits them to serve. Its not that they dont see you it seemed that they had some other priority other than the customer.

Decide to stop at 'The Merry Cricketer' because it looked so quaint and interesting from the outside. It's the old part at the back of the Balrothery Inn and is accessed by a road that turns in behind the Inn. Very old kind of pub dating back to the 1600's - full of locals watching the match. Bar staff friendly and efficient. Decided to order some food which came promtly - nicely served and all tasted fine and very large portions but nothing to write home about - steak was a bit tough. Still enjoyed our stop but wouldn't be rushing back for the food.

Don't bother visiting. Dark musty smell and dirty tables. Not a desirable place to relax in. A horrible experience.

Just left Balrothery Inn after fab dinner. Had one of nicest burgers ever, my hubby had fab chicken dish and the kids cleared their plates too. Was very well priced too. Would defo recommend a visit especially after a visit to the magnificent Ardgillan Castle and gardens. Dinner at Balrothery inn finished off a really lovely day out.
