Very limited menu, nothing for vegetarian disappointed the previous menu was very good, had to leave and go elsewhere!! The previous menu that they had was very good with a choice for vegetarians, maybe they are using this limited menu until they get a more extensive one?

Thank-you for taking the time to write a review, our new menu has six starters and nine main courses on it, we also run daily specials which consists of starters and main courses. If you combine the two, it is actually the same size as our previous menu, we feel this is more than enough for a pub menu. Our... More

A pleasant hotel, restaurant and bar. Prices were very good , wide selection of beers, and a limited menu (probably due to the fact that they were newly opened. One of the nicest bars in Carnoustie. Would recommend this hotel.

Went to the Kinloch Arms during a 3 night stay in Carnoustie for the Commonwealth Games, found the staff helpful and service prompt despite them being fairly busy, potatoes skins for starters could have been seasoned better but Chicken ceaser Salad was full of flavor and portion was generous, nice lively atmosphere helped make this a pleasant experience and would...

Had a fantastic meal tonight with my husband and our little boy. Great service and great prices. Had a live band on later on as well. Well worth a visit, hotel is undergoing a major refurbishment and has a great outside seating area.

I booked a room online 5 days before my proposed stay, arrived off the train with my luggage after a long day, found the hotel but to my dismay it was shut and had notices up warning about its being a building site. Surely they could have informed the booking company? I had to search for somewhere else which was... More

Warm welcome. Very friendly and helpful staff. Room very clean and everything(t.v. Shower etc) worked. Furniture a little dated. Wonderful options at breakfast including selection of fruits and cereals and filling fry up. Friendly bar. I would sum up as one star hotel,with five star service. Have stayed in many highly rated hotels where I would not be as well... More

This is the second time we have had high tea at the Kinloch Arms and we were not disappointed on either visit. Huge portions of home made steak pie and a lovely steak cooked to perfection. Plenty of toast but no pancakes or scones on the second visit but as we were almost at the end of service were delighted... More
