I came to the area on business - was a last minute booking. Fantastic value for money room - clean, well equipped and quiet. Breakfast served nice and early (helps us reps). Actually ate here too - often I venture out somewhere else for variety. However, the quality of the customer service (Gavin) and his extensive knowledge of the menu/guest... More

A group of eight of us stayed here in July whilst enjoying the wonderful golf courses of the Angus coast. This is an ideal location for a golfing base. The rooms were ideal, clean and comfortable and the hospitality was very warm and friendly. There was a great breakfast each morning and the food in the restaurant was excellent.

My wife and I recently returned to Canada from our two week vacation in Scotland. We stayed here with family and friends over the weekend during The Open Championship. It was a great location, with great food and great craft beers for our weekend (3-night) stay. We found this tavern of great value! All rooms vary in size, ours was... More

We and two other couples stayed here last week during the British Open golf championship. Great value!!!! Rooms really varied in size -- one small, one adequate (with updated bath) and one, their executive suite, very large. Trust me, the executive suite is worth the few extra quid!!! The staff was VERY friendly--really wanted to please you!! Beds were OK.... More

Found everything spot on! Our room, number 5 (executive) was spacious, quirky and spotless. Top marks to the ever so helpful staff, the food and of course the delightful atmosphere of the pub itself! Will highly recommended the 'Fish'. Okay, on the previous review re the smell, I did catch a 'wiff' in the bar but I think the drains... More

The hotel was OK, but we stayed in the "penthouse" family room, and it smelled horribly of old fish and chips. Doesn't feel so fresh, even though the room itself is nice enough. Very sweet and friendly staff! Food in the restaurant is excellent.

Just home after two nights in the Fisherman's Tavern. The staff are excellent - very friendly, helpful and welcoming. Had dinner there on our first evening and it was very good! Evening entertainment on Thursday (Fiddlers) was excellent too! Busy hotel and pub and can be noisy late on but this did not spoil our stay.
